Default How to buy $1000+ items on eBay

Hi everyone.

Not within the next month but sometime in the near future I would like to buy a couple items that cost $1000+. A example would be LX900 label printer. Its all about going the extra mile and seperating myself from everyone else and buying this printer amongst other things will really help my business(es) grow at a more rapid pace.

My assumption from reading this forum is I should create a seperate stealth buyer account to buy these products? I assume I would be putting my other accounts in jeopardy if I purchased such expensive products on those accounts with minimal, if any buying history. I have sold items to customers where their was a 24 hour review on placed on their account due to security reasons, this is exactly what I want to avoid at all costs.

I could just buy new threw the manufacture, but that printer for instance is 1000 dollars cheaper on ebay, used but like new. I have a couple other items I would like to purchase that exceed 1000+ dollars too. I don't need to buy these items back to back (same month) but would like to eventually get my hands on these products.

Any guidance on the best approach to buying such expensive products on STEALTH accounts will be appreciated

(i do have the possibility of getting my original ebay account back with buying privilages but not sure if I can get paypal restored, so stealth related advice is what I'm after)

I just buy out of my smaller stealth accounts and edit the address at checkout to an address I have access to. This is one of my cash-out methods on small accounts.

I also use my one and only suspended account to buy from as well.

Others buy as a guest user.

I wouldnt use a stealth account when it comes to products of that value. I don't think its worth the risk should anything go wrong with the transaction.
I myself use my real account for such purchases - and my real account is for purchasing only (I do NOT sell on it).

I agree with Slokor.......I would not use a stealth name, ONLY because of thee is a problem, that might cause you a problem......other then that, if I knew it was going to go off without a hitch, then I'd use stealth......I do on small under $200 purchases, just so they have some buying history......making the account seem a little more "normal".

Wise idea.

Never had an issue.

Do you have access to a real credit card of your own with limits for purchases? I have registered a few to stealth BUYING only accounts - stealth names, accessible addresses...

Man.... 'all these I read on the forum and some doofus said' concepts are flops.


If you have made your stealth account account correctly, you use it to its best advantage.

Since you already know hassles can happen with new accounts and large amounts, you wait and then decide to make purchases if you must.

Keep in mind you are running an ebay account. By coincidence it is stealth.

It is still an ebay account.

Sounds a very flawed plan.

Just to clarify, you just told the OP to use a real credit card on a stealth account with stealth name, address?

Few flaws there.

I did say my " general assumption" from reading this forum, not from any particular member, but I see where your going with that.

I know I can get my real account back with at least buying privilages, but if I get that back and not my paypal, whats the point of using real info on one when its condradictory to my stealth paypal, you know?

The best deals are usually auctions, bin tend to be priced higher as most sellers know they will eventually sell for that amount. Obviously that statement can condradict itself but for the most part at least for the items I want, bin tend to run higher. (in reply to buying as a guest)

I do feel 100% confident in my stealth accounts but still feel like I'm risking them by buying something so expensive. In other words, its like calling ebay your risking the account, end of story.

Even when I ask my question, you can see why I asked, many users differ in opinion.

I probably will just do what Yankee said, it seems the best approach. Unless there are better methods or ideas how I can do this without risking a account. We all know security is increasing on Paypals end (usa), thats a fact.

No, your questions were fine.

It's the sillier opinions given by others I mentioned.

I would expect you go into any purchases with all your boxes ticked.

It's all in the planing.

Buying a $1000 item is a lot different than using a paypal account to cash out.


You have to keep in mind you are using paypal. There's a risk from the start.

Buying accounts are a lot less scrutinized, unless you had major buying issues with eBay and PayPal than I cant see them closing a buying account down

I have 3 paypal accounts in all my real information and 3 eBay accounts all buying, never an issue, now if I were to try and turn one into a selling than I can see all getting suspended

I bought an item as GUEST from my non-registered eBay account. When I checked out my purchase showed I still had Buyer Protection. Maybe I read it wrong (and it was a five dollar item) but I am pretty sure that is what I saw.

ETA - I browsed as me but checked out as guest.

I would have 990 great reasons to not risk a guest buy

Couldn't have said it better myself! At the end of the day, I'm going to get one...just a matter of how.

If the money is in the PP already and everything is good on your eb/pp I would say go for it ,but are you picking this up in person or mailing it? If you change address to where you are shipping it I wouldn't use one that is already in the system under a different account

Paypal can still put the payment under review regardless if their is money in the paypal account if they feel its suspicous in nature. Anything above 1000 dollars without a track record raises flags with Paypal, serious ones.

yep I know that's a way of cashing out a stealth account without adding a bank account to it and pp really watches for that . But it is a buying selling account and long as the transaction don't seem fishy even if they review it should be ok .But if they find anything that links you to the seller account then ur in trouble

It's sound so flawed if you are ONLY using the account for buying. Address access is IMPORTANT. Of course, if the account is being used for other things...the plan is hugely flawed.

Have to be disciplined with what I said to apply it ONLY for buying.

How many purchases do you think I would need before I could purchase something like that label printer?

Using a serpeate buying account strictly for that sounds smart.

I suppose I have nothing to lose if its a buyers account, if say they do place a hold on my account for whatever reason. All I would need to do is use a prepaid card, or something along that lines...basically not dumping a grand into a buyers account.

I'm so used to stealth selling, I haven't thought about stealth buying, ever. I know its obviously easier because, well its just buying. I do know they have security but its more relaxed. I just haven't had the chance to know the do's/don'ts yet, thats all.

Only way even remotely possible is shipped to the primary address on the account from day 1. I get the idea you are trying to bam open an acct pop a few quick nothings to disguise your true intent and than boom hit it for a g and drain it. On a stealth account without serious long term i say 4-6 months normal buying selling history is the only way that works and has to ship to the primary address that has been on acct since day 1.

I disagree greatly based purely on extensive experience.
I run several thousands of dollars through my stealth accounts weekly. Most accounts are used less than 45 days total because they hit the 20K etc.. IRS rule.

Yankee you are saying you have accounts that are under 45 days old that you run tens of thousands of dollars through ? If that is what you are saying than I am saying that is beyond impressive. I cant even get a 45 day old account with higher than 5000 monthly limits. Crazy crazy good beyond impressive.
