Talking

A large piece of furniture wasn't the best first choice to list, actually a large piece of furniture is never a wise choice to list ever for that matter. Now you just gotta sit on it.

Many mistakes on a new account.

Name brand item

Buy it now with a high priced item

List low priced non name brand with no buy it nows on new accounts for a while to get it started.

They do this randomly now. Call them, be nice and answer questions like a noob. Then be friendly and ask to raise limits...it works.
I sell a book from their photo library/list for my first sale and get mc999's.

I concur with this.

This happened to me 2 weeks ago on a new stealth account of mine. I listed a remote control w/ buy it now for $19.99. I got the same message as OP.

I called up eB rep (obviously manipulated my number so it looked like it was originating from my stealth state).

Rep told me they do this on every new account. She didn't ask me to answer any account-related questions. She only asked me what I intended on selling in the future, which I replied was 'things around my house that I have no use for'. I told her my friends use this site, and thought it would be a good idea to make some extra cash.

At the end of our convo, she even bumped up my selling restrictions to 15/$1000 without me even asking (I think it was 10/$500 before). I thanked her for her excellent service.


Moral of the story is...

1. Don't start off with electronics and buy it now as many just mentioned. Sandy's list is a good guideline to follow if you're unsure.
2. Be very friendly when talking to eB reps and play on their emotions too. They are ppl too (yes shocking)!


A lot of this is already covered in the stealth guide, but it doesn't hurt to reiterate the main points.

About of 70 percent of new accounts get the mc999 after listing first item

Also if you get into limit raises on that call be ready for identity questions. If you can answer those you are fine butif you cant dont ask about limits. What is the middle number your ss# , have you ever owned a blue truck, what was your address before. If you can answer these types of questions than ask about limits if not than DONT ask about limits. Trust me I build new accounts everyday and this is the norm even though it only happens most of the time. Dont risk it if you cant answer and value the acct.

Account & listing reinstated!

Got a sweet female rep
Couple of easy questions, she asked to call me back.
She gave me a lot of advice, especially on pictures. I thanked her a lot. She seemed to like that.

Happy day!

Nice one, keep in mind this is just step 1. Remember to stay under the radar for the first 90 days. Eb will still keep tabs on you to make sure you're not a 'risky' account. After that 90 day evaluation period, you will then notice a higher selling limit. Then you can gradually increase the amount of goods you sell - but always staying below their threshold. Your in it for the long haul, so be patient and reap rewards later.

on my stealth accounts I make sure i get a lot of browsing history, buy tangible items more than $5.00 (some 15, 20, 50 etc) and after 30 days has passed.. earning about 27 or odd number of feedbacks from buying.. I sell something that is of less than 10 dollar value to get my "seller" status in good standing. I have however talked to ebay and played dumb saying I was new and wanted to get rid of some items around the house...limit increased from 5/500 to 25 1,250 (this was recent)
