    I got my act. shut down and I need to open a stealth act. 10 items is nothing though if you want to make a decent profit. Is there a way to get a higher spending limit without waiting the 3months. I did it on my 1st act by just calling in but they wanted to verify personal info on public record so can't do that on stealth act.

    Also, should I use a vpn when creating the new stealth act? I'm on a shared wireless network so would I always have a new IP?

    How do you handle returns? You have to tell the buyers to send the items somewhere and if it's not your address obviously you can't send it there. If you tell the buyer to send to your old address ebay will flag it.

    I have learned about Stealth but I haven't used the method yet. I do know that ebay will identify you through your IP address and cookies. You can learn a lot about stealth from a guy on YouTube and his name is EbayisaJoke. You might have to sift through some of his videos to get to the actual beginner howtos. Another great way to get some good info is to google "how to ebay stealth". There will be some forums to help you in the search results. Also if you haven't already search through BHW and look on the eBay forum. I've heard some people over there talking about Stealth before. These are the ways I learned about stealth.

    Regarding the returns. I believe that some people just write them off as a loss if someone wants a return. Another way is to tell the customer that you have a separate return address ( tell them you have a warehouse for returns).

    Good luck, eBay is really difficult these days.

    10 items is a norm for new accounts. After 90 days you can call them if your account has 100 feedback and 5.0 dsrs and see if they will but be prepared for a million questions. Sometimes they will go into the prove who you are mode and if you fail the questions the account is gone.
    Having several stealth accounts is a must anymore on ebay. If you need 100 items sold then have 10 accounts. After time you will see your limits raised on all of them and be good to go.

    I would be careful learning from someone who wears a mask to cover their face on a video and has multiple youtube user names like he does.
    He also is out to take anyone who tries to help someone down and that is not a person I would deal with myself.

    I have a source of a lady who I have bought several accounts from for very cheap. She makes ebay and paypal accounts that are very good and has a reputation to back it up. PM me and I will send you to her. I paid her 60.00 for both a verified ebay and paypal account together and went back and bought more as the first one went very well. I will keep going back for more because of her price and the fact she knows what she is doing.

    You don't have to wait for 3 months in order to increase your limits, actually the first increase is automatic once you verify yourself and this will increase it to 50 after this all the requests must be done over the phone and you can try to increase it every month just make sure you reach to the limit before the end of every month and do all shipping on time.

    I start an account this past december and right now my limits are 500 or $10,000 but we have been taken really good care of this account.

    How are you verifying? And most people do not get past the phone call with the questions they ask on the phone.

    Be prepared because they will ask you several questions to verify yourself and your location.

    You don't need to wait three months if you give them your social security number.

    Buying does not count towards your selling limits. You should be able to sell 10 items. The 90 days does not start until after you have sold for 90 days and it appears you have not sold yet. If you are legit why not call them and ask them? I did on my legit account and got huge numbers.
