Not recommended, make your own account.

New IP, new user account (or computer). That's about it, assuming your friend already has a seller account.

empire actually has a point this time though. It would be a lot easier for you to just start or buy your own new account.

Quick but not ideal.
If/when the account goes down that friend of yours will never be able to sell using that account again. And if your main account got taken down theres the possibility of it happening again and that could affect your friendship.
Is it worth it?

Not the wisest move.

What stops you starting from scratch and having proper control of the account?

We all need money.

But many of us found that rushing back and taking short cuts failed.


Can only suggest learning stealth properly will be better long term.

Thanks for the advice, I'll take my time

If I was to set up a Stealth eBay Account myself and bought a ready made PayPal account would that work? Or do addresses need to match?

Ideally, address need to match to operate safely...

Ideally you would want to know the ins and outs of stealth before trying to make your own or buying an account.

Essentially if you do buy an account, you will only need a new user account and a Fresh IP address to start using the account. Pretty much all sellers offer instructions and a mini guide on how to run accounts safely.

All information should also match on eBay and paypal. Don't try and take things too quickly or you will make errors.

This is a disaster waiting to happen, make your own paypal, start selling slow and work you way up to a higher trust status from both ebay and paypal.

Don't cash out all your money at once, don't shuffle huge sums through different accounts, don't have item disputes and too much money returns, etc...
