    Does anyone do this? I have Samsung Galaxy s3's to sell but never sold on ebay before. Will they do anything to limit me? Is a stealth account mandotary?

    You need to pay some amount of commission to eay for every sales, check with the ebay helpdesk for exact amount of commission for each sales!

    Well if you have the product and know your legit then theirs no reason to think that.

    My advice would be:

    Take pictures of the phone with your ebay username.
    And if your new on ebay then don't list to many at the same time or you will get limited.
    Describe your listing accordingly.
    Offer a return policy if your business user.

    As far as I know u won't be limited, but like any other seller on ebay (but powersellers) the money will be held in paypal for about 21 days before u'll get it.

    A few tips u should ALWAYS keep:

    -Never ever ever ship without registered mail (ebay already favors buyer side, u'r safe only if u have a registered mail).
    -Make sure to check all ebay fees since they are very high (13% of first 50$ and 3% of the rest) + 2.x% for paypal fee + listing fee & shipping fee - well I guess u get the point.
    -You can save on photos by just uploading html code img's for free on u'r sale page.
    -List accurately everything u sell, give detailed info for everything.
    -Check u'r paypal account before u ship, make sure that the money was really sent, I was almost fooled once, get an email that seems 100% legit but no money was transferred to my account.
    -Strive for 5 stars rating and u'll get a power seller account after a while (I think u have to apply), it gives u fee reduction.

    From experience, I will never deal in Pc components/electronics after numerous deadbeat buyers claiming products were damaged or not working. Paypal more often than not, will always take the buyer's side in that category, its classified as "high risk".

    Selling electronics on eBay is a nightmare! especially used items. Prepare for at least 20% of customers to be dicks.

    If your account on Ebay is new, you will a few limitations. However, that can be overcome easily if you provide shipping and prompt shipping with every order. After you reach your max, simply chat with Ebay support and tell them you want to up your limits and you've done everything right. They'll listen.
