Accounts might be aged. That would be my suggestion.

Go on their profiles where it says "member since XXXX" and see when those sellers joined. Chances are the accounts are aged. It's common practice to sell 10-15 items on a new stealth account very slowly to get rid of payment holds, then let it sit for a few months waiting for Christmas sales. This is the time of year all the shadow stealth accounts start popping up with things for sale lol.

What I've done in the past is open a business account from the beginning and when eBay/PayPal asks for a "estimated monthly sales amount" give an amount larger than what you'll actually make. Worked for me

Aged selling accounts, yes. Letting a fresh account sit for 2 years before selling won't help. But making 10 good sales in January will make your account stronger in November, because you will already have a sale history and you'll look more like a "normal user".

Business accounts can't be called stealth accounts since they lose "stealth" status when you put an EIN on file. Established business accounts are given more leeway but a brand new business account is scrutinized just like a brand new personal account.

so would you recommend making an acc, browsing on it, not listing after 2 weeks?

what about name changes?

I browse and bid on stuff 2-4 weeks before doing sales but that's my style. Name changes are still a big flag
