    I'm new to ebay, and since I'm new I can sell up to 10 items/month. Now I want to sell more than 10 and more than 100 maybe.
    I've thinking about multiple accounts but I don't know if it will still allow me to sell on new accounts that I will open.
    Any suggestions? Thanks. :)

    I heard you can't withdraw you funds from paypal with stealth. Also is there any method to avoid the 21 days paypal limited funds?

    21 days limit depends on what kind of items you sell and your location i guess , i dont have that kind of limitation but other sellers from usa do.To withdraw the money you could use some freelancing sites or just send the money as service/purchase to your real account

    I had the same limits on a 4 year old account...I posted a test product with 1000 quantity then they gave me an error message that I was limited I clicked on a link and verified some additional info and that raised my limit to 100 items per month or $5000 per month

    Anything more than that it states you can contact them to discuss raising the limit higher not sure how that works though

    Lastly with the 21 day thing as long as you provide a tracking number they will release the money to you within 3 days of the customer receiving the product. I sold a camera a few months ago and got the money withing two days

    Hope this helps

    First time I sold something was this month, but the account is 2 years old, provided the tracking information and they still held my funds 21 days.

    Really depends on what type of item you are selling..

    If you are trying to set up an actual business then do not go down the stealth route.

    Just do what normal people do, build up a small customer base over 1-2 months..slowly increase sales.. make your account verified etc.

    If you are selling items below £4/$5 then turn it into a "micro payments" account + upgrade to a business account.

    The basic points are

    Do not rush into things
    Do not just go down the "100 stealth accounts all selling 10 bits of crap"
    Do not try to get around Ebay policies/Ebay pricing..just accept it and work out how to still make a profit.

    I have managed to run a fully legit business for over 3 years now and I did it the hard way, but the proper way.

    If you don't plan on going stealth just contact customer support and with some proof of identity they will lift your limits. You may have to have some successful sales first though.

    Sure you'll need to have good selling history on your account before asking for higher limit.

    Actually if this is your legit account and your selling with your name then I do not see any reason at all
    why you could not work this out and raise your selling limits on this account. If not then consider acquiring a stealth eBay account attached to a stealth PayPal account.

    You can request a higher limit and they'll send you a letter with a code. You enter the code on ebay and your limit up's to 100 items / £3,500 a month.

    Hey there,

    eBay will automatically increase your limits when you sell more items/ sell more items of a higher price. Usually it takes a few months in order to boost these limits to 20 items/$2000, which is not worth the time in my opinion..However, if you are a small time seller, this should be no problem. On the other hand, if you are a huge power seller, you might actually want to consider going stealth. You can confirm your info to increase your limits. You can also buy stealth, business eBay accounts off of Tim (InfinityAI) here on BHW to get a selling limit of what I think is 35/$5000. And of course, your limits will also increase on this account once you establish a track record with eBay.

    Hope this helped, feel free to PM me with any questions.

    From my side I just asked them to increase my limits on the first month....I asked this using Ebay contact form. I already asked 3 times to increase my limits and every time they accepted.
    The firts time they phoned me just to ask few basic questions: Like what would you do if a customer is not happy ? blablabla... They want just be sure you as a seller will have quality customer service.
    The other times they just uncreaded me without questions !!
    Never had any problems I sell an average for 2000 Euros/month with 20%-25% profit
