Now I have personally believed for years, that part of the solution to prevent this is to track all your packages, and to put those numbers into your Paypal transactions so Paypal can verify the tracking as well.

Once you are in the update area, choose to edit. Then you can adjust your average transaction prices and your average monthly volume.
This little trick may just help keep your account from being locked down when the big bucks start rolling in.
