Buying & Selling Thru Ebay & Other Auctions/Ebay selling limits?


Hi - I am working with my son to teach him some business skills by selling things on Ebay.  We just started and all was well until we received a listing limit on our account.  Why did we receive that and is there anything we can do to increase the limit.  Ultimately, we would like to list as many products as possible but don't know if that is feasible or not on Ebay.   Any help is greatly appreciated!

Many members have limits placed on their account or on certain categories and items until they confirm certain information or establish a positive selling history. These limits help you become a successful seller, in addition to ensuring a safer experience for all eBay customers.

We have 3 types of limits:

   Account limits

   Category limits

   Item limits
