Are stealth accounts good to bid on your own products?
If they are well-made stealth accounts, then yes, but why would you do that? If you need some eBay ratings, why not just buy/sell some digital wallpapers or guides for like 1-30 cents each? Stealth accounts would cost you much more...
Well, if you do it, do it smart. Different IP and atleast some feedback on bidding account. Also: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10510086
That is called shill bidding and yes it does work but eBay can catch on pretty easy so you need to
make sure the stealth accounts are separated and are solid or face a domino effect of suspensions.
yes stealth accounts are great for doing that.
I cannot believe we are helping someone screw someone else over. As a large buyer on ebay it sickens me to think your product or listing sucks so bad that you have to bid on it yourself.
I had a couple of accounts, shill bidding, it took em 3 month catch on, but they did and banned both accounts....think they also may of linked them to my first suspended account (had a few now! shill bidding was my own daft fault) unsure why the attention was drawn....prob because I won 2 auctions then cancelled the sale.....
Not worth it if you ask me...an really, why bother shill bidding, start your prices higher or have a reserve - I learnt the hard way, nearly 100 points on each of them accounts as well....bugger!!
yup they are great for bidding on your stuff
You can shill bid a little bit but if you do it enough times you will likely be linked.
so far, I read in G about it and gathered some info. Stealth account will help you to do that.
you can do that make sure they stay separate
Separate names with a comma.
