Created a stealth account. Added my new bank account to it. I have like $100 on my checking account that is linked to pp. I want to purchase some small items on this account to build feedback. Is there any danger in paying with paypal while you have no money on pp but you have it on your checking acc?

I have done this before. While I prefer paying with my credit card, bank transfers have worked well - make sure your bank does not charge fees with each transfer. Can be steep.

Do NOT transfer funds from your bank account TO a stealth account. It has been said that pp can see your name on the bank account that way.

Greendot moneypack or giftcard is what I usually use to load paypal to buy stuff, you can pick them up at any 7-11.

This is true because paypal has essentially been written a check from your bank account... make sense?

Ok, when Lake speaks, I listen.
What happens when PP tries to grab cash from account and it fails? Like fees or whatever. I try and catch the ebay fees before they do, but they have attempted bank withdraws a couple times and failed. So far nothing has happened. But it needs to be asked

I've had it happen hundreds of times over the last years... and it just bounces the check. You'll most likley have a returned check fee from the bank... eventually the paypal balance goes into the negative, or ebay gets shut down. I believe they try 3 times to make the debit.

My stealth acc is like 18 days old. For me to buy things i was going to sell a video game and get some money.It will sell for around 15-20 bucks. Will i cause any red flags by doing this? I dont want to transfer funds from bank to pp.

Also what is this greendot thing?

I always cover the fees. But it just happens when overlooked is all. But glad to hear they dont see anything.

It's greendot moneypak you give the cashier however much you want to load, up to $250, then you go back and enter the activation # into paypal and the money instantly available in your paypal acc.

google search greendot online

I doubt selling one item for 20 dollars will raise any eyebrows

Thanks guys, looking up greendot right now. Quick question though, when i ship these items should i give my real address on the package or should i write the address that is on my stealth account? Or does it not matter?

It doesn't make any difference unless they want to return it, you can always email them a return address when the time comes.

If they don't get their fees and the check bounces, they USUALLY put your account into suspension w/ further need to verify. Had this happen to 5 accounts (accidentally withdrew when I didn't want that) and 2 weeks later...all at the same time (accounts go down). No, I didn't use them and link them, brand spanking new...same methods I always use.
