From time to time, eBay may place a buying limit or restriction on an account. This is to encourage responsible buying, and to keep their marketplace safe for buyers and sellers.

A buying limit means you won't be able to buy any more items until you complete your current purchases and orders.
If your buying activities have been limited, it may be because:
You're new to the site, and are making a lot of purchases or buying expensive items
You've suddenly and significantly increased your bidding or buying activity
You have an excessive number of unpaid items or canceled orders because you didn't pay on your account
You're the highest bidder on a number of auctions, but haven't paid for any items yet
The best way to avoid buyer restrictions is to familiarize yourself with eBay's buying policies: https://www.ebay.com/help/policies/rules-policies-buyers/rules-policies-buyers?id=4206
If your buying activities have been limited, eBay will send you an email explaining why, and what you need to do to have the limits removed. For example, they may need you to confirm that you're completing purchases that you've bid on or they may need to verify your identity.
Buying limits are very rarely applied, but these tips can help you avoid them:
Only bid on or buy items you plan to pay for
Pay for items as soon as possible
Improve your feedback profile by paying promptly and leaving feedback for sellers
Verify your identity by adding a credit card as a payment method to your account
