Default Am I selling too quickly?

Hi everyone, long time member here in the marketplace but rarely a poster. Anyways I had a few questions on what my limits are to avoid getting suspended/flagged. My current stealth account is almost 3 years old, had some 500$ sales in it's first year but I slowed down for a while. Recently I've been selling quite a bit and as of now my 30 day total is 4.2k, 7 items sold. Almost all of my sales (around 18 total sales) have been mid to high value electronics and I opened an ebay store as well.

I was about to list another macbook up but I'm kind of worried my totals are a little high for just a month. I'm considering opening up a few more accounts and spreading the listings out. What do you guys think, am I safe or should I slow it down?

My account limits are currently 120/6800


appreciate any help/advice received.

I would say do 2-5k a month for the next month or two then you can do more.
Spread it out either way. Don't put all your eggs in one basket

It sounds like you are selling relatively slow. Seems like few items, but more expensive items. I think you would be ok, but if you feel you threatened then it would not hurt to start selling slowly on some stealth accounts. That way they are prepped up and ready to go if the current one ever goes down.

Better to be proactive instead of reactive!

Interesting, I figured due to the items being small quantity but high value it came with a risk. It would be a pleasant surprise to be wrong about that of course.

appreciate that, I'm definitely going to spread everything out just so I have backup options ready. I have a lot more stuff I want to list but didn't know how quick was too quick. Appreciate both of your replies.

Excellent to have those options available. Electronics is always a risky category.

Higher value but small qty usually is a better option.

As they said, creating more stealth accounts or buying them at a higher limit and spreading the sales is a very good practice.

Actually, the problem will be on your PayPal, cause PayPal is corrupt in many ways :D
Had been doing atleast $10,000.00 sales in a month, and PayPal applied a rolling reserves, which is kinda annoying.
TLDR; Run more stealth accounts.

With your account being that old, I think you are safe to list those types of items without issues like that. Like the other poster said, watch your paypal limits. They will be requesting tax id once you get close to 200 items or $20,000.

Good to hear. And should I swap out paypal to avoid the tax ID request or will that result in an account suspension? I've heard conflicting info on that.

Is it 20k AND 200 items or whichever you hit first?
