    If I am selling authentic products using the amazon to ebay dropshipping method do I need a stealth account? Will I be fine using my personal ebay/paypal accounts?

    Sure as long as you are actually sending the items. Not to mention if you use a card on paypal with good cashback rate you would benefit from doing it under your own name.

    Ok thanks. So I can sell as much as I want and be able to withdraw as much as I want from Paypal with no limits etc.? I won't run into any problems down the road?

    They might ask you to provide id to verify your account and proof of address.

    And shipping info. You can copy that off amazon.

    Sellers usually use stealth accounts to hide real identity and avoid chargebacks. With Paypal, sellers are always at disadvantage against buyers when a dispute arise. Go with your personal account if the business is legit.

    People generally use stealth accounts for the following reasons -
    1. Expanding business at a faster rate, e.g. hard to grow 1 account with 100 products, but easier to make bigger profit using 10 accounts with 100 products each
    2. The seller's country doesn't support Paypal/Ebay

    Also its just good to have stealth accounts because if your real account ever does get limited, you don't want to be left high & dry

    Stealth ebay account is necessary. Because if ebay recognise you use fake account. They will ban you permanently. Ebay is too strict.

    You need it for the same reason you buy health insurance even though you don't plan on getting cancer tomorrow.
