Unhappy Etsy asked for my ID

Tried to make my new stealth account today, with all my new stealth details, new identity including IP address, address, phone, email, new banking with stealth name, new products and images and then they hit me with wanting me to upload my ID because they can't verify who I am. I just feel devastated, after all the work I had put into this....maybe I just need some words of encouragement. Am I toast with this stealth account?

As I told you via email, you can't use certain info that's made up at points. Given the nature of this I'm not going into detail on the public forum, but I identified the mistake you made and you should be able to fix it.

How can you avoid ID verification? I read this forum but I'm not sure. One thread Gladiator wrote that it can be achieved by opening a shop in one of countries without DC. But what about a bank account then? Is it ok when your shop country is another than account country? Is it still below-the-radar situation?

I think if anyone needs assistance with ID verification they should be contacting admin of the forum for advice on the subject. I might be wrong, but please don't contact a new user for this sort of thing, it just reeks of trouble.

There's a few ways that are openly discussed. My way isn't but it's my way. A few years back me & a 2 other members agreed to never post the main work-around publicly so we don't. You'll be glad we didn't if the same way works on eBay once they go adyen-checkout.

And no, one strike doesn't shut a shop down. 3 almost always does unless you're a big seller.

No problem, for every sale on etsy I get 10 on ebay, more worried about this paypal thing not letting me pay shipping or ebay fees with paypal balance?

It depends on your market on etsy. I sell more on etsy vs eBay and can get a higher price on etsy. It also helps to spread items over multiple stores, etsy's search is broken garbage so the more times you market the better chance you have over competitors. It's a simplistic approach, but given how they promote/change front page top listings it's the only way to keep an item in the forefront of their algorithm.

Get an EIN and verify your accounts, shouldn't be an issue.
