    So I need a way to get around the eBay seller limits. I am currently at 100 items and $5000 and I met the $5000 mark within just a few days... some of the items I am trying to sell are worth well over $20,000 so that just isn't going to fly. What is the best way to go about getting around this? Sure I have many items worth less then $5k that I would imagine some eBay stealth accounts would be a good option for but I wouldn't imagine that would work well for the larger items. Is it possible to buy a stealth account with no limits? Also what all would I need in addition to a stealth account (I imagine stealth paypal accounts and proxies or vpns)? And anyone know good direct reliable sources to purchase all of these?

    Edit: Just got to thinking, maybe I am over-thinking this. Since I am not selling anything illegal, or trying to scam anyone why would I need a stealth account? Couldnt one just open a second bank account, start a new paypal, and start a new ebay account... thoughts?

    And that's the million dollar question....

    If your account is in great shape and stays that way, limits will increase eventually but it will take time. But it is wise not to place all your eggs in one basket, of course.

    Stealth accounts are a way of getting around selling limits but they also take time to mature and have their limits raised. Make sure you fully understand how to run multiple stealth accounts - one simple mistake could cost you dearly.

    Yes, you can buy stealth accounts that have no limits on them, but that doesn't mean that they will stay that way. Limits can be (and have been) imposed on old good accounts.

    Som,e people will say that VPN's will work, other say that a VPS with your own VPN is better. Ebay's methods of tracking you and your PC are getting better and better. Cookies, flash cookies, beacons are just a few. Learning what to do and how to do it is essential to running a bunch of accounts. But is always a hassle.

    As to where to purchase : there are a few sites that offer what you need. Not to many, so finding them is super easy.

    Thank you! I know that eventually the limits will be removed but after reading some reviews by other people I realize that that can take a substantial amount of time. Even after the 3 months to raise it from the limit I have right now it will only be raised by 20 items more a month and no dollar amount raise. The items im trying to sell are more of a clearance so even the 3 months wait is too long.

    Yes, i know.

    patience is a virtue for sure in the ebay game. There is no such thing anymore as a running start and increase speed like a mad porsche.

    The only way to get your limits raised or altogether lifted is time. If you do things to fast you will run into problems. Still, you need to max out your listing capabilities each and every month. If you don't ebay will see no need to increase your limits.

    Like i said before, nobody is safe from imposed restrictions. They can happen to very old accounts with perfect rating and standing - for no apparent reason.
    A lot also depends on what you sell and where you sell it. Same goes for your procedures of shipping.

    I used to run a bunch of stealth accounts and believe me, it's not an easy thing to do.
    Stealth accounts are a way to get more listings online but a lot of people are also having problems with getting the monkey's out of it. Remember that fund transfers always leave a trail.
    Lot's of things to be considered if you are going that way.

    your edit:

    again ebay is not very clear on that issue. While you are allowed to have multiple accounts you may not use them to circumvent the listing limits you may have on an account. Typical ebay screw up

    I thought I remembered someone saying a while back that they had a similar issue as this and they ended up calling ebay and proving their worth and that their items were legit and they were able to get their selling limits increased. It's not guaranteed that it will work but it is worth a shot.

    I say get a stealth account, you shouldn't worry if your items are legit anyways.

    Your post are really below standard and user experience is always better than eBay's dumb ass tech support.
    Do you work for them or something?

    The other sites... aspkin and modeeworld, are run by the same person, and both total scams. The guides and advice they give are outdated, and the accounts sold are worthless. If you're still having trouble with this, I'll be happy to help. I have years of experience on the subject.

    Partner with an eBay power seller. Also, may I ask what it is your selling for 20k?

    First thing to know is there is no Legitimate by the rule book way to operate more than one eBay account.
    So either your planning on opening a second stealth account or not. If you do this half way then your just going to loose your legitimate
    Account and suffer that. Either you acquire a stealth account and learn how to run it properly or nothing.

    Since anything in between will result is misery.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    I do not think you can do .. maybe ask some big seller in exchange for a small percentage

    This is not correct information. There are many ways to operate 100% legit accounts, that are not linked to each other.
