Lying about age in order to buy and sell online

salam,
before I turned 18, I was 17, I signed up with paypal and ebay, I entered a false age by mistake, I wrote the false age because I wanted to buy something really badly , I have also sold on ebay using that paypal account to send and receive money, I have abided by all the rules and regulations with paypal and ebay, I have followed all the rules but I signed up before I turned 18, I am now over 18 but the date of birth is the same as when I signed up,
I sent money from my paypal account through my bank account to the seller ( paypal transactions are by e-mail) to buy the product, does the above make the product which I bought haram for me?
also all the money which came through to my paypal account by selling products on ebay, is it haram , although the items which I sold were bought properly, for e.g. I had bought a pair of jeans for �125 cash then sold them for �60 on ebay, when you sell something you have to pay ebay (10% commission )and paypal fees, I have paid those fees as well everytime I have sold something, the only thing is the date of birth was wrong when I signed up shall I send a apology? is it ok for me to continue using the account?
I would like to know a detailed answer and a solution to this mess ( from shari aspect)

I would also appreciate if you could read the user agreement to help me?

Transaction was faulty but money may be used. Cancel that account. Re apply with valid details. Make Istighfaar and Taubah
