    They won't care. You are entitled to sell on eBay and receive ssi.

    It’s possible for them to find out and if they do and you don’t report it you will have to pay them back.

    To sell you must give your SSN to eBay.  The government can easily subpoena eBay and Paypal's records.

    Yes, they can. They'll be keeping an eye on your bank account, and seeing income from a single source multiple times will make them suspicious.
