    This is the 3rd ebay stealth account that I have received 0 selling limit!! I thought it was my ip but I got a fresh dedicated IP and same problem. My original thought was the vcc but everyone said they are using for their stealth accounts with no problem?? Its either phone or vcc.

    I use a phone verification forwarding number but I have used those before with no problem. The only thing I can think is it's the vcc.

    Its making me crazy because I can't figure out what it is. Its wasting alot of time and money and I'm loosing income.

    What do you guys think??

    Did you access it from the same computer as the previous two that received a selling limit?

    It's probably not only your method, its also due to the fact that ebay is always stricter on the holidays. If you need packages with high limits let me know

    The answer is in your 1st post - "phone verification forwarding number". Do NOT use any kind of phone forwarding. Already abused/overused/saturated.

    Just a regular SIM from your local phone provider. New real number. Fake/forwarded/etc. numbers trigger the 0 selling limits.

    Dude, that's the most stupid thing i ever heard.


    Did you clear flash cookies?
    Check here and change YOUR-COMPUTER-NAME:

    C:\Users\YOUR-COMPUTER-NAME\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects

    You don't need a completely new computer or anything. A new user account will ensure your cookies/flash cookies/all data is separate so that's fine. Rarely will a VCC cause any problems, but if you're really paranoid about that then Visa gift cards are about the best types of VCCs you can use, but are also the most expensive (I believe the smallest amount you can get is $25).

    Phone forwarding also can be an issue so try prepaid phones. You can easily get one for less than $10 at a grocery or drug store. Amazon has some for $5 with free Prime shipping.

    But if you're sure that you're doing everything right, then sometimes it's just ebay and not you. If you create accounts enough, you'll get 0 limits some of the time no matter what you do. They are definitely more strict around the holidays as said above. They always come up with some new "plan" around this time and are a lot less strict after the new year. It was the same last year when they started a lot of new accounts with 0/0 limits and forced people to click the "request higher selling limits" button fully knowing that it would trap stealth users.

    This has been going on for the last 3 months. Its not just holidays. I'm using fresh dedicated ip and new windows user. All new info.

    It 3 ebay in a row and 1 amazon. Thats too much. I've done a lot of stealths and never had this problem before. The only thing I'm doing different is the vcc AND not verifying paypal. Those gift cards won't work on ebay.

    I just don't get what it is and it's driving me nuts. Can't keep wasting time and money like this. If i use different user there is no way to link me right?

    Nowakmto can they see the computer name with each different user? Is it possible to change the computer name for each user?

    What do you mean those gift cards won't work on ebay? I use them to verify a large portion of my accounts. I'm talking about Vanilla Visa gift cards. You have to go to their website to register your stealth zip code and then they can pass AVS check.

    Using a different user account doesn't necessarily make you link-proof, but it does separates cookies and such. You could still link yourself in various other ways such as using the same info, IP, or photos across accounts etc but since you said you're using all new info they you're fine in that department.

    What are you using for getting a new IP?

    Fully verifying your Paypal can help, but I never add a VBA or bank until much later so that's not the sole factor in determining limits.

    Last year when ebay started their "new" MC999 0/0 limits nonsense, it was around September or October if I recall, so it's normal for them to be more strict around this time. When I said around the holidays, that's what I meant. If you have only created 3 accounts with 0 limits within the last 3 months then you're lucky. No matter how good one's methods are, you could create 10 accounts in one day and around 3 of them would have 0 limits. Or you could also get extremely lucky and have an account with 5000/50,000 limits. Ebay's limit system is almost like playing the lottery at times, so don't let a few failures discourage you, especially if you've been making accounts for a while. They seem to be even more strict this year than normal ever since they were hacked.

    If money is an issue then why not call them about the accounts? Worse that would happen is they get suspended, but they're useless with 0/0 limits anyway. Some reps will ask you basic questions about your selling plans and give you limits on the spot. Some will be puzzled as to why they can't find you in public records and either say there's nothing they can do, or request documents from you. But you can also save the account in this step if you come up with a believable story. You're young and don't have a mortgage, auto loans, or anything in your name, which is why they can't find you in the public database. You use public transportation so you don't have a license to scan for them. Or, you've only lived in apartments your entire life. Something to that effect. Be creative and you'll be surprised. You have nothing to lose with those accounts at this point anyway.

    How long do you wait before turning your account into a seller account? Doing so too soon after creating the account and having no activity on it tends to increase your chances of getting 0 limits, but again it's not the sole factor.

    I made a few accounts in the past few weeks and didn't get any zero limits restrictions here, so it has to be something with how you are creating them. Give the setup details here or in private so we can help.

    Jmt123 is right, minimum load is $25 for these visa prepaid cards.
    I have visa prepaid gift cards if you need them. Comes with 7 year expiration, but I guarantee at least 6 years since I have bulk stock just sitting here for use whenever i need them.
    We can work something out that is less than the $25, PM for pricing and more details.

    New ip, user, ph..everything new. Even used dedicated ip. Using vcc to verify and a phone forwarding number.
    What could it be? I don't get a chance to post anything so it can't be the products or pictures.

    That still doesn't take care of footprints like flash cookies, web beacons, and other identifiers. Download and install ccleaner then run it before you sign in. If you really want to do it right I would suggest a virtual desktop.

    If I'm using a new windows use wouldn't that keep identifiers seperate. I only log into the stealth accounts to list or manage.I don't surf or do any activity on those users.

    What is virtual desktop?

    The only stealth account that I received 0 selling limit was the only one that I was a phone forwarding service.

    Seems that 2nd guy know the answer (posted by me on post #7). Curious why the OP still don't agree with that or my post was ignored, as far as I'm reading the 4th sent. from #13 post. I'll use colours now:

    Do NOT use ANY kind of phone forwarding service. EVER. That will trigger the $£€ 0/0 items eB selling limit.

    Maybe now should be more visible and clear.

    LOL...I saw it!!! I used google voice several times before with no problems but the last few times I bought some numbers from a forwarder. I'm still wondering if I might be the vcc too. Its not the ones you buy in stores.Get online.

    I'm traveling now so Its hard for me to get my hands on one of those pre paid phones or a plastic card at stores. What do you guys not in the U.S do for phone and credit card verification?

    <br><br>What do those of you outside the U.S.  use for credit card and phone on stealth acct? <br>I'm travelling now and not in the U.S. so I can't get a trec phone or go to the store for a prepaid card. I want to get a couple of stealths up and get in on some of the holiday shopping. <br><br>I'm suspicious of the vcc I bought online from some random site. Since I used those I have received 0 selling limit. I can't help but wonder if they  don' re-sell the visa numbers so I want to try another vcc this time and see what happens.<br>
