    Couple ebay stealth help questions

    Started a stealth account kept getting 0 limits, I changed all the items below and got a 0/0 limit so I called ebay and they changed to 25/1250. Can I increase the 25/1250 immediately or do I need to wait for them to do it? $1250 doesnt help my biz selling. I used my real social on the PayPal account was correct or should I have something different?

    If I have several stealth accounts do I have to change to unique phone number, address, user/IP? etc.. every time I try start a Stealth account or can I change one item at a time to find what they catch?

    Does PayPal need to be linked to start a eBay or can I start a buying account before adding PayPal to see if I get limited?

    If I create a new user account and Google chrome, could I have several users with different IP addresses?

    New
    PO Box address
    Pre-paid credit card
    Magic jack phone
    Bank account
    PayPal


    thanks for the help

    increase every 30 days, but calling in is playing russian roulette with your account


    No, you have to go completely new right off the bat, because if you mess in the beginning like this you can get linked by what you do months or years down the line.

    A LOT of times they will leave eBay buying accounts alone (buying generates revenue for eBay), and lay down the hammer when you start to sell. Starting a buying account is a waste of time, in my experience.

    Thanks toml3030 and everyone else that posts to this site I've learned a lot since being suspended.

    How do I handle the PayPal social number when opening new account. I tried a business account but it still asked for SS number.

    How do you have several different IP's from one computer? If I create several users can I have diff IP's for each?

    Would it be easier to purchase a eBay name to get going faster with higher limits? Is it safe to buy?

    Thanks
    again

    They shouldn't ask SS# right off the bat.


    By using separate internet connections


    IP is assigned by how you access internet, not by your computer

    I don't recommend it for beginners, because if you're doing something to get your account linked and banned, you'll still be doing it on the account you buy and you'll still end up getting banned.

    ok I'll try a new paypal account and see about the SS. I thought it made me enter one on the last account.

    Are saying I need seperate internet providers accounts and new lines coming into the house?

    thanks again

    They usually make to provide SS# when 200 transaction /$20,000 year reporting requirement to the IRS starts becoming a inssue.


    No, you have to have your computer broadcast a different IP address for each ebay account that access the internet. This can be achieved by using more than one router on a cable internet connection, using dial up internet connection, or using smart phone hotspot to access internet.

    generally fighting account suspension is a waste of time unless eBay is specifically wrong on an issue like they banned you for VERO violation and you can prove that the VERO rights holder approves your selling. My "conspiracy theory" is that eBay will let minor issues slide with a new account if you take care not to be noticed or act suspiciously. Go slow, don't make waves, and have low defect rate and once your account gets big enough to generate significant revenue for eBay, then you can go nuts.

    Funny you say that I listed a "Tag heuer" watch box and it was removed for VERO before it even listed. It's a authentic box so I wasn't sure why is got Vero'ed. Not good making waves so soon but do think the name "Tag heuer" did it? I mean its a real box and no watch?

    Some brands are pretty much no no on eBay since the company that owns the brand doesn't want them sold on eBay. Maybe they deemed your auction keyword spamming, not making clear enough that you're just selling an empty box. Could be a lot of reasons.
