    Your welcome WoozyBluff. I am tired of misinformation about PayPal and eBay and people who need help and
    really are not getting it from someone who actually has experience. Time to fix the mess :)

    OP this is my main problem.. I have lot of ebay stealth accounts.. (ebay only) I created 3-5 accounts each day for backup in the future.. When i ready to use them, i created paypal account wait about 2-3 weeks then start selling..

    I know its good to start with small amount first.. Then i created listing to get feedbacks.. When it comes to 3-4 months and my selling limit already increased and i have 10++ feedbacks i start selling items with profit..

    Still under $100.. When i got 2-3 sales per day about 3-4 days almost all cases my paypal account got limited access..

    So my question is how to avoid this problem? i tested several methods and what work most is i only can sell 3-4 items per week.. This way can reduce alert on paypal account limited system..

    Do you have any other way?

    Thank you Veyron it is always a pleasure to talk to you. :)

    Hello Mafiablack - You are smart to create many accounts before hand so that you have them aging
    over time so when the new accounts are compromised you always have a fresh stock to fall back on.

    I am concerned over which network you are using for your VPS or Private proxies. A lot of stability with
    stealth accounts comes down to your network and how you transfer money. Could you please elaborate
    on how you are signing into these accounts and what network you are using?

    Thanks for the help MD.

    My question is what should I sell on a new account to keep ebay from handing me the mc999 and shut me down.

    Seems when I listed a very good item and for more then 10.00 they hit me with the mc999.

    Any suggestions? And when can I start selling more expensive items please?

    Thank you.

    Your welcome Doug. Just guessing I imagine your really good item is probably a name brand item even
    if it is real and legitimate am I correct? For example if I have a new stealth eBay account and I am going to sell
    a legitimate pair of Air Jordan's on eBay that is great and I will probably make decent profit.

    Problem is it is a high risk item since a lot of people sell fakes and Nike constantly has a team of jerks paid
    to look at listings and flag items. Not to mention you have your competition flagging the listings just like you
    have those same type of people flagging YouTube videos.

    Solution? You can do several things to help minimize your risk listing a new item with your eBay account.

    1. Always make sure your pictures in your listing look home made and not some factory picture
    or a ripped picture from Google images. Imperfect pictures not only look real it attracts less attention
    from the company brand looking at listings.

    2. With a new account sell items that are not branded at all but are cool little gadgets that sell for
    a small profit. You should always have more than one eBay account standing by aging and selling
    items that are really barely worth selling besides it adds value to your account history.

    3. Stay away from those pesky companies like dhgate or alibaba. They take too much cut out of your money
    and you can find the items cheaper from an individual. Remember shipping time is critical so try to buy your
    stock upfront and have it boxed ready to ship.

    That's all good steps to not getting hammered by eBay instantly. If I know more of the nature of your
    products I could give more selective advice but remember not to post your niche people will steal it.

    I have plenty for personal use and keep a fresh batch waiting that I rotate and as far as what do I list I never completely give away my niche and I think anyone in their right mind would not :)

    1-You can not connect all the eBay accounts with one PayPal account. If one is down all the accounts will down including PayPal account.
    2-Your PayPal should be verified (bank account verified + credit/debit card attached with the account)
    3-Create windows users for each account and switch the IP when you enter to each account. don't clear cookies or flash cookies if you don't want PayPal to get altered.
    4-Make sure to get a positive feedback as a seller to build some trust.

    I didn't use proxy or vps, im using dynamic ip. each time i logged in my accounts i'll reboot the ip. before this im using Et to withdraw money from all stealth accounts but as time goes by, withdraw money to ET makes high alert on pp system and can't use it anymore.. So usually i'll transfer fund to my main account before withdraw..

    Question that many seem to have problems with and no solution. Paypal has been asking many to confirm their actual location with a phone call. Call forwarding will not work. What do you suggest that is working today to confirm actual location with a phone when paypal ask? Thank you.
