    As per the title says.... im not sure why..

    Cant you add 1,000's of items on 1 account? Why would people have like 10-20 stealth accounts with products?

    eBay limits accounts very quickly. New accounts are usually limited to 1k/10 items per month.

    Stealth accounts allow you to bypass the limits that eBay imposes.

    A lot of people use stealth accounts to sell replicas, too, because they can't be traced back to the person.

    Another reason someone would use a stealth account is if their original account was banned for something. Even legitimate accounts can get banned or limited by eBay if you get enough problematic buyers.
