    is this related to the IP these accounts made on or what ?
    What do they do with these accounts?
    Do they use them to send to many email lists they have ?

    There are many different reasons why but you are correct they could create them for free. I used to buy yahoo email accounts to use for fake yahoo profiles so I could spam yahoo answers, I knew 70-80% of the accounts would be suspended so I didn't want to waste time creating new accounts it just seemed more efficient to buy maybe 100-200 accounts for 5 bucks.

    it can be quicker to buy 100 for a few bucks instead of making them yourself.

    Email accounts can be purchased very cheap, so for most people it wouldn't be worthwhile sitting around for hours creating those accounts when they can just buy them for a few bucks.

    Here's an example to put that into perspective:

    Our friend, Johnny, makes around $30 per hour with his IM business.
    If he could create one account per minute, this would be 60 accounts in an hour.
    Obviously, Johnny could just purchase 60 accounts for much less than $30, so it's more economical to purchase them.

    Bots could also be used to create the accounts, but then you also have troubleshooting to do if the software doesn't work correctly, and you still have to spend some time on it.

    I agree.
    I want to know if I can buy 100 gmail accounts and use them to send emails( each account can send 500 email per day).
    I have a huge list of emails and most of them are dead and don't want to pay to clean the list.
    Will it be a good idea if I buy accounts and send emails to these people? These lists are scraped and not opted in .

    That's very simple. Because someone can do it better and more efficient than you plus you obviously haven't dealt with gmail creation well enough. Try create a 100 accounts and let me know how it goes. I bet this would start to make some sense

    Phone verification plays an important part too. It takes a lot more time to create email accounts in gmail, yahoo etc. nowadays due to phone verification. So, buying them in bulk saves both time and hassles.

    Some people the cost of the accounts is nothing compared to what
    the accounts can do, so wasting time making them is pointless,

    i think it's too time consuming to create that many emails by yourself. if they have the funds, why not just outsourced them.

    I used to code for an online pharm. You would think that those viagra spam emails would go into everyone's trash, but they don't. And you would be surprised at the number of people who convert from a good email list. Our list was bought from various places, and this was back when tracking pixels worked on gmail (I think they killed them?).

    Very targeted email lists can make business owners thousands of dollars from just creating a great email ad and clicking the send button. Email marketing is insanely profitable.

    So you use those email accounts to send emails and not using a mass emailing service?
