    Looking for an established account that I can start selling Samsung/Vizio electronics right away. Doesn't need to be that old. Just good enough for me to start selling on it without being flagged. Looking to start selling slowly and build it up.

    Probably not going to happen, unless you are prepared to drop mad cash.

    Well I dont have mad cash and am not looking for accounts that are many years old. Just something that can fly under the radar while listing $400 items. I am not too familiar with the stealth account scene so not sure what to expect. It's all a learning process for me. May be I can learn a thing or two on this site and build up my own stealth accounts for the long term.

    1. What you want to sell is one of the most risky areas in eBay. Relatively new account listing multiple electronics stuff on an account that don't have long term trust capital built with eBay will most likely lead to quick account limitation.

    2. If you don't have mad cash, then I'm going to assume that you're going to drop ship electronics. That's like playing with fire x2.

    3. An account that could safely sell multiple electronics without worrying about invoice request from eBay and paypal limitations would go for at minimum 4 figures, I would figure.

    You can't really stay under the radar if you start off by listing high risk items. eBay has bots that scan listings for things like this. If you buy an account from someone in New York who built an account selling gardening tools and you start listing electronics in California, that looks extremely scammy to eBay.


    Start small, young grasshopper. Starting off on eBay by selling drop shipped electronics is like a chef wanting to start at a michelin star restaurant.

    If you want to build up long term business, let me give you one advice. Almost always there is the right way to do things, and quick way to do things, but there are very few quick and right way to do things.

    Thanks for the input, man. I understand my items are risky. They limited my 10 year old account for selling those items but it was my fault by selling too much too fast and the way I handled their requests. I have learned from it. I wouldn't mind paying 4 figures for the right account. The reason is I only have access to the items I am selling for a short future time. I understand what you saying about doing the right way but unfortunately, I don't have the time/luxury for it at the moment. Thats why I am trying to purchase the privilege.

    For the long term business account, what do you suggest I sale on new stealth accounts to build up the account? Is dropshipping okay?
