I thought creating Ebay new accounts needed a landline number? Little confused why these mobile phone numbers are working.

No you don't need a landline number.

Can someone please confirm whether the name on Ebay and the sim HAS to be in the same name? TIA!

It does not need to be the same.

(Thank heavens )


Rule of thumb:

ebay/paypal information must match for stealth.

Sim never needs to be in the same name of the eBay account - applies to ALL eB platforms

I've been buying $2 pre-paid Telstra SIMs at Australia Post and Coles and haven't yet been asked for ID.

How are sellers activating the Telstra $2 sims? I'm currently in the process of activating online however it's asking for some sort of ID as the user is a new customer. How do I get around this?

Just pop the SIM in a mobile phone, make sure it's not a dead SIM (this happens sometimes). Enter the phone in on eBay and when you're right to sell eBay will "call" you and leave a 4 digit message as your PIN and you're right to go. Otherwise PM me.

I just activated an optus one and it didn't ask me for ID. Just put all the stealth info

Just one question. I checked the balance and it says service will expire on the 06/07/2013

So I am thinking if you don't recharge within 7days then the sim will expire. I don't start selling on new accounts in 7days and most of my accounts are at least 2months old before I list anything.

So do I buy a sim when creating the account new add the number, recharge or just make up a number on the sign up page then later buy and activate sim when changing the account to seller?

I think it will be too expensive to recharge each sim

Next time when you buy a SIM make sure it has a longer expiry date. Unsure of this one, I normally don't re-charge on pre-paid SIM (cost too much). I just use the mobile number to obtain the PIN so I can start selling online.

Making up a number is not wise. Number could belong to another person. ebay may call at any time

Keeping a phone active is part of the cost of business

I think that is how it works with optus. If you don't recharge within 7 days then your service ends. So what number do you put on sign up page because I wait much longer than 7 days to convert the account to seller

Same with my local woolworths

I used to get them at a chinese store nearby (family owned) that don't ask for ID but they are closed on weekends so it can be inconvenient.

I just decided to buy them online. $1 on voda site with free shipping.

You can enter your shipping details to be different than the account registration details Although technically it would still leave a paper trail on which sim cards were sent to your home address.

I don't think leaving a paper trail is a problem though because it's not used for illegal use.

Today my local Woolworths didn't ask for ID at the front desk, although it was quite busy when I got my prepaid sim.

Funny enough there was a stand near the exit full of Vodafone prepaid sim packs, I could have just grabbed one there and used the self service checkout had I seen it.

I tried once at my local woolies when it was super busy. Hoping they would forget About ID check because it's busy. Didn't work.

They ended up rolling their eyes at me when they saw i had a $2 sim and they tried to convince me to come back and buy it at another time when it wasn't busy.

I said no. i Can't come back later because I need to buy it now. They said Fine. Rolled their eyes on me again and told me i had to wait about 10 minutes until someone else was available because it was so busy.

I guess because them trying to get rid me didn't work the first time. they thought making me wait for ages would get rid of me. lol

Checked your ID in spite of a busy time and low amount...the clerk is doing the proper work - respect for that

Woolworths are not going to risk being fined under Federal Law just because you do not want to give ID.
