    Greetings BHW Community,
    I have watched posts and comments on this forum about DS that really piqued my interest. I think the method fits me and my needs so I owe it to myself to give it a good shot.
    I have a few personalized questions and this is where you, the brilliant and crafty minds of BHW, come in to offer me your wisdom.
    Note that I haven't started doing any DS yet.

    I have a PayPal account which I created about 5-6 years ago, it's only activities were a payment done to that account and a purchase done with that money. Both activities took place around the time my account got created, after which the account hadn't been used for anything else. I couldn't remember if I had an eBay account and if I had it linked with PayPal (I doubt it), so I tried to login and I found out that I had an eBay account after all, since it told me my password had expired and I asked me to put a new one.

    Now my questions are,
    Could I use that account for my DS? (I know the proper way would be to have a few stealth PayPal accounts)
    My PayPal account was created and used by a European IP, so can I use it to DS in the US or do I have to stick with the UK eBay?
    If I can use that account, would I have to use a VPN / VPS/ Proxy to do my sales? If the answer is yes, I would appreciate it if you could list some free services.

    I'm sure more questions will pop up in my head later.
    All answers, tips and tricks are much appreciated so share whatever you can!

    I hope this community can help me grow, so when the time comes where another newbie asks for help I will be in a place to support him too.
