Question How do you make auctions look like they're different people?

How do you make auctions look like they're different people?

Okay, I have a problem. First, I don't accept paypal and I'm usually the only one so it makes my accounts stand out.

But after that, there's my listing. I make the colors and layout different but it all ends up as well my terms look the same. I've rewritten them as best I can, but my terms are refined and all have to have the same stuff pretty much.

I can describe the item in different ways and have different bios, but my terms all look the same as my terms are pretty much all the same info. I also put a generic location for what's displayed in the auction, rather than my own.

Anyway, how do all of you make your auctions look the same so even that you don't take paypal, people will see two of your account's auctions and think they're different people?

I have commented on this before. You really have to try to be creative and become as many people as you have accounts for. It took me awhile but once you create a few different templates, you all set. Use "Word" and play try some ideas.

Does feebay really have people manually sort through all the listings to see if the descriptions "look different" enough from past accounts? I don't know how else this kind of thing would even matter.. But if so, good grief what a pathetic job to have!

No, but other buyers and sellers will recognize based on not taking paypal and similar terms.

The same DBA on the credit card statement and same return address when shipped while obviously dead giveaways, I still try what I can.

Why would buyers care if you have several accounts? Plus the chance is small that someone buys from 2 of your accounts. And they can't recognize you for taking PayPal, most of eBay sellers take PayPal. As for similar terms, well just write 2 different terms...
