    alright guys heres a list of things about ebay, trying to create a new account and i left you guys with some basics on what i did, and questions.



    • I already have another email address ready to go
    • I've signed into a different profile on my laptop that I've never used before and just created, cleared my cookies, cache, search history, IP Address, etc.
    • I'm living somewhere else now so i have a different physical address, and different ISP, router, etc.
    • I don't remember using my SSN on the last account (maybe i can login at the library and find out?)
    • Other than that, do i have to eventually do that, reason being is I've heard that if you give ebay your bank routing number, and a separate credit card, you won't have to, was thinking about using Ally.
    • And what about the temporary phone number, do i have to keep it active for a while (few months)? And will any app work, burner, hushed, vibr, etc, and if so how long do i have to keep those accounts active? (like will paypal randomly call me?)

    yes



    yes, eventually paypal will ask for either a SS# or Tax ID when you hit the 200/$20,000 limit. What bank you use doesn't matter if you're using your real name with eBay.




    1. It's always a good idea to have a working phone in case you need to call in to eBay.

    2. DO NOT use an app in place of a real phone.

    many banks such as chase & boa are fine with accepting money from mismatched names

    In the beginning you won't have to provide a SSN or tax id but "eventually" they will ask for it if your account is projected to reach the 200/$20000 a year mark.

    Keep a phone number handy in case you ever need to call ebay or paypal.

    For your main stealth paypal account I would recommend keeping a VOIP phone number attached to it at all times. Turn off images displaying in your email if its not off by default so web beacons do not get you.
