    Hey guys so heres the story, (I talk about the main product at the end)

    I was selling microsoft keys on ebay from may 2013 to november 2013. Unfortunately, ebay caught on and banned my account and limited my paypal indefinitely. Long story short, it was stupid on my part but i did make money (which i desperately needed for school expenses at the time).

    In january (after changing my internet service provider), I made a new paypal and ebay account. I began purchasing products through coupons and deals and selling on ebay. Tedious, but it was a good way to build feedback while making a little pocket money on the side. Thinking I'd be fine considering my products now were legitimate, I didn't worry about using the same name on both the new ebay and paypal. But bam, 2 weeks ago i got banned indefinitely again.

    Now: i have access to an amazing product that has good profit margins, sells extremely well, and is 100% allowed on ebay. BUT, i do not want to go through the hassle of creating new accounts and building feedback just to get suspended again and again.

    What do you guys recommend? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    What i intend to do:
    - sell legitimate products
    - build feedback and hopefully attain powerseller level again

    would you recommend:
    - stealth account (which i have no knowledge on)
    - or something else?

    When you started back on eBay did you use any of the same information: IP, address and so on?

    It sounds like you'd want to buy someone's aged account (an account that is at least a few months old and has feedback, basically like flex2264 said). But they will be pretty expensive since someone had to spend a lot of time working on it.

    If I were you, I wouldn't give up on making your own accounts just yet. Do some research about how to properly create stealth accounts and it will (literally) pay off. Everyone starts off knowing nothing about stealth, but you too can beat the system and get back to making money on eBay with hard work and perseverance.

    Using the same name for both accounts isn't enough to link them - you had to have did something else as well. Did you use the same pictures/descriptions for your listings? That's something that can link you. Also, you say that your items are allowed to be sold on eBay, but are you sure? Ebay absolutely hates digital items, whether they are 100% legit or not.

    Thank you all for your responses.

    A few questions:
    Where can I purchase stealth accounts?
    Is there a good guide for creating and operating stealth accounts?

    I have a 12 year old eBay account that was a power seller once upon a time. Let me know if you want to work something out :)

    I'm hearing that that they can link you by the same: pictures, item desc, price, shipping price, etc. You need to mix it up when you start again.

    you can always find someone who already has everything and get them to do it for you while you charge 5% or 10% commission

    Stealth
    Stealth is the only way to go, as long as everything's authentic you most likely wont have a problem
