No I mean rent
Example. U list the product I pay 5 dollars per sold listing plus ebay fee I pay for shipping . U just upload tracking once delivered you send money via a no fee method like chase quickpay
U stay in control of ur ebay n paypal account

So in other words get someone else to sell your product for you? And receive payment on your behalf?
So many potential problems with that scenario I wouldnt know where to start.

Many sca.mmers on Craig.sList and numerous forums already beat you to this years ago. They get n00bs to sell ill.egal sh*t and get their accounts NARU'd. Cash out and peace out. On to the next desperate/naive n00b.

Yes, but at least you take the risk on your own account(s) and not someone else's. If i screw up my stealth's it's on me.

Just so you are aware, people have been running Stealth Accounts for a loooong time without issues.

So you aren't responsible when other peoples' accounts get NARU'd for the questionable items you sell. I'm pretty sure that's what we're looking at here.

Last time I checked eBay accounts were not for rent. I have sold off excess inventory to fellow eBay sellers in the event something bad happened on my end. But "renting" and account that doesn't work.

Like 10 years ago you might be able to pull that off. Not today.

Oh u mean how all the sellers only have 250 dollar accounts in stock how funny that is. It's not me moaning about it. It's other newbies as we'll maybe u should actually check other posts before trying to single me out. But thanks for ur 2 cents

I was just thinking about it

It's just as legit as a stealth account. That u buy in some1 else name

It's not like I would call ebay up n say listen I'm renting this account is this ok with ur policies

And it's not like I'm a heavy volume seller

If I told guy the street listen u list for me I pay fees u just send me money when it's delivered. Small listings at first How would that not work.

I would never burn an account that would waste of everyone time after putting in effort

All I asked was I was thinking about it and everyone went asked their grandma oh my god did he just ask that lol

Yes once you get the hang of it your right

I just assumed buying a basic account would be easier I pay u u send if and done

So if forced to to buy high limit account why not do it from profits instead of own money

I didn't say I was gonna do it I was just thinking about it and getting info from you all on this forum. Everyone is having a heart attack. Like chill it's a new year be blessed u have ur health not ur stealth account lmao

I'm not having a heart attack. You could also consider buying an account from sellers here and using it for sales

So, why make this a complicated mess?

If you want someone to sell your items under terms, send them your items being clear as what the costs are, and as they sell, they pay you for your items.

Simple wholesale. I do it everyday.
Another option is to become the source of goods and service and ship items while others sell it. If you offer great service, no issues at all. If you don't, then it will fail and cost your wholesale buyers problems..

WOW.
What an ignorant comment.

I think you need to educate yourself before spewing garbage from your keyboard.

the 1099K issue for stealth has NOTHING to do with paying taxes. Get your facts straight.

First silliness for 2015.

Never occurred to you the sellers may not want to sell?

Sure you have not forgotten they have right of declining.

Default Re: Has anyone rented a ebay account

If anybody approached me about "renting" my eBay account, I would be VERY, VERY skeptical. I mean, why are they willing to simply give me money?

THEY have the product, THEY have a way to ship it and THEY have the money to stock the inventory, so why wouldn't they just get their OWN eBay account and keep ALL of the profits?

My best guess would be because the merchandise is counterfeit, is otherwise illegal, or they are trying to avoid IRS reporting.

Many years ago, before there was an internet, I received a business sales call from a company selling drop-ship opportunities. They had a very nice catalog printed which I could buy in bulk for maybe 20 cents each, they had mailing lists I could buy for 10 cents a name and of course would pack and ship all of my orders for a fee.

I thought about it... THEY have the catalogs, THEY have the mailing lists and THEY have the inventory. So, WHY DID THEY NEED ME??? For the POSTAGE! They knew that very few people would actually place an order and it was not worth it for them to spend their money mailing the catalogs. So, they sold them to other people who wanted to go into business but couldn't put it all together with buying an inventory, printing catalogs, etc. It was a GREAT DEAL - for THEM! I figured it would cost me about $900 to mail out 1,000 catalogs. I would only make money if there were enough orders to pay me back for my $900 investment, plus the costs of the merchandise and their packing and shipping fees. About 15% of the people I mailed to would have had to place an order for it to work out for me. A 15% response rate was unheard of in the direct mail industry, however, with the average being 2% - 3%. So, I was almost GUARANTEED to take a loss. The company selling the opportunity was making money each step of the way. They only needed to keep finding people willing to invest in sending their catalogs for them.

Whenever someone approaches you with some sort of an opportunity, you have to ask yourself WHY are they offering it to you? What do they need YOU for? What are YOU bringing to the table? If the answer is nothing, or if the answer seems sketchy, then the opportunity is not likely to be a valid opportunity.

I learned this the hard way. I BOUGHT those catalogs and mailed them out. I was maybe 19 or 20 at the time and the idea of being in business for myself was VERY attractive to me. I was just the sucker that salesman was looking for. He pressed all of my GREED buttons and had me dreaming of what I would do with all of the money I was going to make. When all was said and done, I was about $1,200 poorer, but a little bit wiser.

I have my facts. If u pay taxes u don't need to worry when it hits 20.000 u don't want them to send ur info to irs for what to avoid taxes
