    My eBay account has been indefinitely suspended and therefor i cannot sell on there anymore.

    I am thinking of other methods of selling online.

    To list a new product on Amazon and to sell jewellery you have to be PRO by paying £25/month.

    I have also looked into E-Bid which seems to be very good due to the fact that there is just a 3% auction fee which is very little and cost £49.49 for a lifetime Seller + account which has no auction fees. However, the traffic on the site is very poor.

    Would like to hear your opinions...

    There are no real ebay alternatives....Start a new account and begin fresh.....all of the ebay alternatives get 1% of the traffic that ebay gets. Amazon is great and if you have a product suited to Amazon you can actually sell for better money as Amazon buyers are not as price led...However if you want to sell ebay stuff dont waste your time on "competitor sites" no traffic= no sales

    Do you recommend going stealth then?
    It's just im afraid that if i invest like $70+ and then eBay sniffs out what im doing ill be screwed.
    $70 down the drain. Anyone have any experience with stealth accounts and can help me out?

    Go stealth using a stealth guide being sold out there... but in general, start small, don't attract ebay's attention by starting big. Are you a business seller? one way to go is to incorporate a new business, with new address, new bank acct, new all. and of crouse, using different IP address.. i would consider a VPS.
