    Hello everyone!!

    (Quick Story)

    If you didn't know my name is eBayStealths (well at least on here). I really want to help everyone out when it comes to selling on eBay, and using PayPal. I really want to help everyone make a full income from online like I do now. It took me 3 years to get where I am today, and I tell you what...it wasn't easy. The one thing I wanted to make sure while going through my online journey was that I didn't scam anyone, or take cheap shots to get to the top. So with more hours then I can count, I was able to do just that..3 years later. I know it seems super hard, and stressful to make a full income online, but if you really keep grinding, and make a long term plan then you can do it! Believe me i HATE failing. Over and over and over I failed. Having my accounts banned time, and time again. Getting my items VERO'd, even when they were 100% Legit (Try and tell eBay that). I also found out that selling VERO'd items would make you a quick buck, but they would also destroy your accounts, one by one. I had to learn this the hard way! After learning Stealth and applying myself, I come up with a few techniques. I know currently run 9 Stealth accounts (thats all I need for my 1.5-2.5k a week business), and having 2 of them last over a year, with the other 7 over 6 months! There are a lot of things involved with having this type of success happen, and one of them is to know what is VERO, and what is not! So here is how I do it!

    One of the questions I get is how do I FIND out what is VERO. There is different ways to find this type of information out, and people do there research different ways. I found out a little secret (not really) while just messing around eBay. Now this isn't going to be a big shocker, and a lot of you probably know this already, but I think this will come in handy for the people that don't know it, and by the amount of messages I have been getting about it, its time I take a swing at it, and reveal my method (and maybe yours too).

    When looking for a item that is Brand Name, or looks like a hot seller I put it through a test before even looking at wholesale, or drop shipping. I will look for sellers with lower feedback (between 50 and 0). I will tell you why in a min. Once I find a seller who is selling the product I "watch" the product. That's right I watch the product! Want to know why? I'll tell you that in a min as well haha. After that I go to look for another seller with around the same feedback. I go to add there listing with the same product. I will go on to do this with many sellers (around 7+), the more you have the better. The next step is to wait. Here is the reason why. When a item gets VERO'd they erase it off eBay. I don't know if you have ever bought anything off eBay that got vero'd, but if you go to the listing page it won't be there. A error page will come up. Well what you are waiting for is the listings to disappear. Now many sellers can get away with selling, but usually not for a long time. The reason I have you add people with low feedback is because they are looked more at by members of VERO more then people that have high selling feedback (not to say they don't get taken down either). Make sure you write the sellers ID down, and all the ones that you have added to the watch list. Within 3 or more days if the listings off your watch list start to just "disappear" (like magic) then you know you have a problem with THIS ITEM. More then likely the item is VERO.

    So Lets Re-Cap:

    Step 1: Search for item you want to sell (Name Brand - Hot Sellers)

    Step 2: Start adding the listings (of the item you want) to your "Watch List". Make sure the users aren't Top Rated.

    Step 3: Wait a few days to see if the items you have added start going away, and vanishing

    Step 4: If less then 10% of items went away, find out why (did the sellers have less then 10 feedback). The item might still be safe, however anything over that I would stay away from.

    Step 5: Start making money, and not wasting it by making mistakes, and buying huge amounts of VERO'd items to only find out you can't sell them

    Final Thoughts:

    I really hope this helps some of you out! I know that this isn't a 100% way, but honestly it has worked WONDERS for me, and saved me THOUSANDS. I wanted to make this to help some of you that are just starting out, or maybe have been doing it for a while but just needs a little help! I want to help you with any questions you might have with making a stealth account, or even how to run it! I have seen some people giving out FREE STEALTH GUIDES, and I would be VERY careful following those. YOU should really learn on your own with the help of different forums on the topics you need help with! Some times those guides can be for marketing purposes! So please just learn how to make them, and you will be ALOT better OFF!!

    Hit me up if you need any help with anything! I would love to help you out!!! Start your eBay Career!!!

    Thank you! Ya you should, that would be great! Honestly if it wasn't for eBay I wouldn't be where I am today! eBay is a beast, and your never going to win against it, you just have to understand, and respect it! Once you take the right steps you can be really banking.

    Yes I think it will not only help new sellers, but Senior Sellers as well, if they didn't have a method already.

    ya your right, but some are more active then others. Some are median-risk level. Which are ok to sell if done correctly! But ya good advice! Its always good to go through the list too as well!

    here is what the error looks like. this is an accurate method, but an instant way to do this is look at completed sales or more specifically, a program like terapek. they will cache all the listings, so that it'll show in your search, and what you click on the link you'll see this error.

    ya terapeak is a great source, and is pretty cheap as well. I've been using that for quite some time now.

    That sounds like an extremely time consuming way of finding out who are participants of the Verified Rights Owner Program. Why don't you just look at the page that shows the participants instead http://pages.ebay.co.uk/vero/participants.html . Protip, it is at the bottom of the page.

    Your right, and I think a user already mention that in this thread, but my reason by using this method is the face that some companies are more active then others. Like some companies don't actively take off listings if the user looks legit with good feedback. Different companies do different things. So just because there part of VERO doesn't mean the listing will get taken down. Maybe I should have worded it a little different haha :)

    You can fight a vero. cost the vero lawyers money. I friend got a vero on a sticke that costed 6 cents, he replied to see the copyright info, their lawyer sent him the sticker patent no. and the design, since the sticker my friend had had no artistic value, he sent the ifo back to ebay if the company doesnt respond in 10 days he get to keep his listing up. But i know the company wont respond, because they are wrong, since he was suspended for a week and lost the promotion he is suing the company for a false vero( if a company submits a false vero they can loose their patent rights) now he is suing the company for 25k, but it is a long process, and he is still learning. i cannont pm if any one know any more info what the next steps are just pm me

    Maybe a good idea is to check the list first to see if the company is on there. If it isn't, then probably no need to spend time testing your method. If the company is on the list, then your method would be worth trying. :)
