    I hope someone can clarify the reasons why someone would set up an ebay stealth account (fake info) vs opening up an LLC (Real info)

    There are costs associated with forming an LLC. Also, those using stealth accounts may not be selling genuine goods, so they know they will be banned again sooner or later.

    The main legit reason is that they have previously had an account banned (for whatever reason) and wish to continue selling.

    So just start a new LLC.
    Unless ebay does not allow llc and only allows people too operate accounts as a solo.

    Use LLC if you plan on selling actual products from quality sources. Use stealth if you plan on selling fakes and things that you know might get a negative review.

    Operating a company means you have certain legal obligations, duties and certain tax implications.
    Some people prefer not to operate like this and prefer to stay under the radar.
