    Hello, how many eBay stealth accounts should I ever link to one paypal account? I don't want the trouble of making and verifying a new paypal for each eBay account. I just want to know, to see how many account I can have at most:p thanks black hat world!

    Ideally 1, but 2 is fine.

    You really should only do one. Once they're linked, they're associated as being the same person. If one of the eBay accounts goes down, the other one will too.
    Its not that hard to create new Paypal accounts, so its best to keep them separate. Especially if you're up to something that requires them to be stealth.

    I think there might be a disconnect here considering the question. The answer is simply 1.
    Let me explain to you why, since the question reads to me like you are missing the essential purpose of it all.
    "Stealth" is to go undetected, unnoticed. Therefore, the concept is simple, 1 ebay account per paypal since the idea of this entire thing is to be viewed as different people. Once you link 2 accounts, you are essentially telling ebay/paypal you are 1 person, not 2.
    So the comment "I don't want the trouble of making and verifying a new paypal for each eBay account" tells me that either you do not understand the reason for using stealth, or you do not really have a need for it.
    If you are doing "real Stealth" then not only should each ebay account have its own paypal, but each user should have its own IP address.

    Your right, And if this plan was carried out all it would end up in is a result of suspension.

    Hi everyone, I am new to this forum, I was suspended from ebay a few days ago for no reason and it looks like they won't be lifting it. I was a top rated seller and all my DSRs were 5/5. I depend on my ebay account to make a living, I actually had 8 different selling accounts because I have so many things to sell, now I know your going to think this is why I got suspended, well I called ebay before I made them and they said it was fine as long as I followed the rules, ect and I did, I had all of them linked to the same paypal, I believe 8 is the limit. Now they only suspended my main big account so far, but i'm sure the other 7 will be done in a matter of a few days. A friend of mine has an ebay and paypal account that he does not use, and he also has a bank account thats not linked to that paypal, I was planning on using his ebay to sell with his paypal and linking his bank account and use all of his information with his permission, now my question is, since only my ebay account got suspended and not my original paypal account, if I change my IP address for using the stealth account, can I still go on my original paypal (The one thats linked with the suspended account) and use it for other things besides ebay or will ebay link that? If they can link that, would I be safe using my original paypal at a different location, a different friends computer, or a library computer, ect? I know once I change my IP to NEVER try and login to any of my old suspended accounts. Can someone please answer my questions and give me a little insite on how well my plan would work? I need my ebay basically to survive. Any help is much appreciated.

    Create a separate user account on your computer for your new eBay/Paypal account. Use that user account ONLY for your new eBay/Paypal accounts. This of course is after you have changed your IP.

    I wouldn't login to your old Paypal account from this new IP at all just to be safe.

    Thanks for the answer my friend, can you tell me how to change my IP address? I'm not gonna try anything stealth until they suspend the rest of my accounts, but as of right now, I'm still making sales on my other 7 accounts so i'm not hurting too much, but I suspect I will soon have them ripped away from me. So basically, create a new user and only use that user for the new ebay/paypal account? What should I do if I need to access my old paypal account? Since I am using a friends paypal, I should still keep track of fees and payments for my taxes ect? The reason I say that is because since it's his paypal account, wouldn't paypal report that as his income and not mine? Thank you for the help.
