Default Made my account got 5/500 but???

Ok so I made my account and got a 5/500 limit. Just also realized I need to buy stuff also. So can I use this account to buy stuff and get it sent to me. What I did was use my real address but change the 1st number of address. EX. 143 Point Pear Dr zip 33168 -- I put 133 Point Pear Dr zip 33168. When i search the address online it gives me the correct 143 Point Pear. Would the items I buy come to me ?

Hard to say what your mail carrier will do.

When you checkout, you can then add the PO box and you can save it as the ship to address.

I have never understood the logic of those who use their stealth ebay selling account for buying on ebay too.

Stupid on so many levels.

I buy many things with many stealths I have... I simply email the sellers and ask them if they can ship to another address before i buy. Most sellers have no problems with that.

Smart sellers will not because they would not be covered for protection from pp though...you've been lucky with your emails.

Sorry, not having it. Most sellers will not ship to addresses other than that which gives them their seller protection.

Tracking is useless, seller will lose every time.

I guess if you're buying cheap tat where the seller doesn't use or care about tracking then you might get the odd one who will accept your message request.

I dont know what others do but I simply cancel the transaction citing undeliverable address, hopefully if a buyer gets enough of these then ebay will ban them.

Back when US Paypals could spend their balances, making purchases on stealth accounts is how we paid for all of our shipping and office supplies for about 5 years. I can understand your hesitation but until you've experimented with the concept yourself to see if it's dangerous or not.. it's not really right to say all of us who've done it before made a stupid decision. Most of the time buying supplies was the easiest way for me to use the balance in a stealth account. Stealth accounts do not go down if you add your address at checkout. We never once lost an account or had any of our accounts linked by making purchases.

With that said, to each their own and all that.. I just didn't like being called stupid for doing something I never had any problems with.

I do agree with this. I've always added my actual business address at checkout rather than trying to message the seller requesting a different address. Any time a buyer requests their order be shipped to an address not given at checkout, I immediately cancel it since that would void seller protection.

@OP - I wouldn't count on USPS catching your "error" and fixing it for you every time. I think there's a high chance you'd end up with a bunch of undeliverable shipments if you were to do what you're saying.

Either a) add your real address during checkout when you go to buy something, with something like "front porch" on address line 2 just to be sure the address looks different than any used on eBay before

-or-

b) get a PO box like yankee said, then add the PO box address at checkout.

Settle down princess, I said the idea, in the current climate, was stupid when every stealth principle peddled on this forum is 'dont volunteer links'

Your dated analogy is pointless, ebay are looking for links to banned members in ways we hadn't even considered 5 years ago.
