    So I really need a PayPal account but I'm not quite 18 yet, I need it to sell things on ebay. Is there any way with not using PayPal on ebay because I can't seem to sell the item I want without it. I thought about just getting a PayPal account anyway but I've heard stories of people's accounts being frozen and locked.

    I have a PayPal account and I'm under 18 (just change your date so that it looks you're 18) :P
    I sold 5 items on ebay so far without any problems

    I've had a PayPal account from the ages of 14-18. Just don't make someone send you a lot of cash. Your account will be blocked, that's pretty much it.
