I don't know of any way; perhaps by merging some accounts, although I doubt that's possible.

yes.

Have you a link? Could always use the "ask seller" option how they think it could be done : )

No, there's no way to apply credits to an account. Read the fine print on the offer to sell on EBay. They will basically join your team with enough horsepower to provide the credit promised, in the time defined, to that team.
