In theory, yer good to go.

Creating new PC user accounts is effectively the same as a fresh installation.

So the mac address of the router is not traceable?

Haven't seen a single post that confirms it causes trouble. All IP, IP, IP.

They also read the MAC address of the network card, that is why any pc that is used on a suspendedAmazon account is toast. Pay for a VPS and if you get suspended you close that account and open a new one to register a new amazon account. Costs about $10 to $20 a month and I call that expenditure insurance.

What if I change it with software like Technitium MAC Address Changer?

Simply not true.

I actually didn't see or experience anything that suggests they do read MAC.
Of course, changing it won't hurt. But it's certainly not necessary.

Agree - the MAC myth is still too prevalent :(

That sounds like good advice.

Which VPS provider do you recommend? You can PM the info if you don't want to declare it publicly.

Avoid VPS... Go with your own virtual box or new laptop + 24vc or IPBurger

Its enough but the fresh account creation with this installation process must be good and effective also.

I do consider Virtualbox a viable option. But why, in your opinion, would it be better than an Offshore VPS?

One of the main reasons is that VPS IP might've been used to create an amazon account before.
Even if it hadn't - it might be used by someone later on.
Especially if your VPS IP is shared.

VPS has lots of issues with Amazon, not so much eBay/PayPal (yet imo)

Things like fingerprint will be identical to other VPS machines offered by the same company/server

While your exact VPS/IP may be unique and luckily unused, there is a good chance that other very similar IP ranges were used on Amazon, by several people with very similar fingerprints from the same provider

Some people use VPS with amazon and have a great experience, but I would personally not use it as there are far less risky options available

Oh, the VPS would always have a fresh, dedicated proxy on the other side. I wouldn't rely exclusively on Virtualbox or a VPS to hide my identity.

If I run 20 different accounts with a VPS company, on 20 different servers located in 20 different countries, how would a local, desktop VM provide better protection against browser fingerprinting?

As I've mentioned above, I'll have virgin, dedicated proxies between the VPS and eBay. While they would contribute to anonymity, that wouldn't be the sole purpose of the VPSes. A more important role would be allowing me to run as many accounts as I like without investing in additional hardware.
