    Noob on BH, so apologies upfront.

    I've got a few eBay accounts, 2 of which are quite mature.
    I'm trying to start a few more accounts so I can offer more products and monopolise my niche.
    What is the best way to manage all accounts?
    Software, tools, techniques.
    I'm currently downloading browsers on my windows machine and just logging in.
    I've got 4 accounts in all, but want to grow more accounts, so I have say 10, 15 or even 30.
    Eventually might even consider buying some stealth accounts, but need to manage them all.
    The products are all legit and I buy from a wholesaler, it's just that competition is fierce for other similar products.
    Any suggestions most welcome.
    Thanks

    I've run multiple accounts (10+) for years by having multiple User IDs on my Macbook and with using a Verizon Jetpack Hotspot. I've moved onto different ways now but this was a great way to do it for a while. Not sure if having Multiple User IDs on a Windows computer would work the same but it did me well on the Mac!

    Three options:

    1. Last Pass Extension + Multiple eBay accounts

    2. Multiple Firefox Instances attached to each

    3. There is a platform interface that allows you to do it (won't say which). It's pricey though

    Use the Firefox profile manager to set up multiple profiles that you can run simultaneously.

    Thanks for you're suggestion, and agree that this sounds like the most simple way.. Seems like there are better more efficient ways now... A couple mentioned multiple Firefox instances, thanks Euphorix, jsmith2..
    Seems like the way to go is to layer this with vps..

    Sounds like they only way to manage them through a dashboard/app is to go via the expensive commercial route..

    Any other suggestions?
    Thank you all!

    the actual ebay rule is you can have up to 10 accounts per paypal id

    but items have to be grouped per account such as 1 account sells garage ssale finds, 2nd sells action figures....etc

    i asked a supervisor on ebay customer service and i have 20 ebay accounts on 2 paypal id's linked to two seperate banks
