My friend is 17 and buys and sells items on eBay. If you look up hair extensions. There are a lot of companies who clearly buy product in bulk and try and sell them on eBay. And nothing happens to them, a far as i know. So as long as you're not advertising, or making a big song and dance about it. It should be okay.
Regarding the element of owning eBay account under the age of 18.
I'm under 18, just about. And I have a paypal account, I used my mothers name and birth date, but used my bank details. And everything was fine.
So just ask someone who is over 18 who you can trust. And open the paypal in their name but with your account details. But be careful I've read of cases where paypal closes down accounts, if they suspect it's being misused e.g a minor.
