    I am new here,
    I just want to understand that why there is a huge demand of old ebay as I read it in one of the threads here on BHW.
    How can buying old ebay accounts be converted?
    You can simply just drop a link of any thread which will explain this if you know any.

    Old accounts without any sales history (if we're talking about seller accounts) is as good as newer accounts.
    Why would they demand of older accounts? because of the fear of being suspended when they list their items, when in fact, it is the same as newer accounts.
    It all depends on what you sell actually, whether it is new or old accounts.

    eBay shows the registration date on prominent place, under the feedback score on the profile page. I'm pretty sure, it's not just me, i would rather buy from someone, who registered years ago (even if there aren't any feedbacks) than from someone, who registered just now and has zero feedback. When a seller has some feedbacks, account age is not that important anymore from a buyer's point of view, but until that, that's the next best thing after feedback score.

    I get it the trust factor and all for both buyer and ebay. But the point is why are people buying bulk ebay seller accounts?

    Point, but do you think that is the only possibility, is there any possibility of building some kind of network that would somehow help?
    Because the demand is huge, and how many buyers are really out there to ask for it?

    I bought a lot of old buyer ebay accounts from 1998-2015. And I realized that it has a lot of advantages when using a new account.

    Some older accounts may not even have selling limits whereas a new account is lucky to have a 10 item limit after creation

    older accounts have less limits/restrictions, which take some time to build as newer accounts

    I need an eBay with good feedback, positive reviews, well over 25 sales, aged, verified and NO PAYMENT HOLDS.

    Actually some common sense. Why would a NEW Ebay account better than and OLD account ?

    New Acct (0 review) = ZERO VALUE
    Old Acct (Lots of Positive reivew) = High VALUE

    Same goes to Wine

    New Fresh Wine = Not much value
    Very Antique Wine = Gold Bar Value :D

    Young man = Not much working Experience
    Middle age = Lots of working experience :D
