Unhappy It's starting to seem impossible, motivation & advice needed...

Hi guys, I've been trying to open stealth shops and failing miserably. They seem to get shut down every time within 24 hours, It's getting disheartening and I thought I'd seek your advice before I give up and seek other avenues to make a living.
For background, I use VPN to open my shops in countries other than my own because recently Etsy removed the option to pay fees with Paypal for my country...presumably to make it harder for stealth users.
Here's everything I'm doing
1- Fresh dedicated VPN from 24vc ( tried Hong Kong, Japan and Malasya so far)
2- New windows user account
3- New products/new images
4- Paypal account with ⊗⊗⊗⊗ name and ⊗⊗⊗⊗ info

Any help would be really appreciated I'm really starting to get depressed with every Etsy Marketplace Integrity email.

Why not just make Direct Checkout stores?

I’d bet your images are flagging you.

Thanks Gladiator, I've never thought about doing that. Which country would you recommend that would be the least hassle?

Is it your Etsy getting shut down really fast or the PayPal your trying to make?

@Gladiator: Etsy payments (DC) is not supported in my country, I can only accept payments through paypal. Do you only make stores in your country? I'm asking because I'd like to know if it's possible making a DC store without running into ID verification and all that in a different country with basically ⊗⊗⊗⊗ info.

@JamesNorth101: it's the Etsy stores that are getting shut down within 24 hours. it seems there are some red flags that if triggered your shop is marked for review by a human and your listings are not indexed until you pass the review. I've noticed through trial and error that some of my shop listings are indexed immediately after the shop is opened, while with other shop's listings are not indexed after opening the shop and these are the ones that seem to get shut down almost every time.

You can’t make DC shops in areas you don’t have info to pass verification in.

How are you verifying the shops? Gift cards? Are you changing your primary emails in PayPal?

Right now I'm just using Paypal... and they've recently removed that option for certain countries so I'm only left with credit cards to verify and open the shop. Is there any way around that that doesn't involve getting someone else's info and credit card?

So it could be the cards your using if they all have same 4 digits in front of the credit card.
Its flagging.

Also how many things are you listing when you first open? Just list 1 item and give it time to pass the human review. If you are listing alot at once it gives them more to pick on.
