Default Accounts keep getting banned without any obvious reason

Hello, so i recently shifted to etsy market. I apply the same principles as i used for paypal and eBay Stealth which is a new ip (i live in Greece and i can just turn on and off router to get a new ip) , new windows browser, new details (email name address), new vcc. But my accounts keep getting limited.
For example i listed one item for over a week now then suddenly i try to login and it says my accounts is deactivated without any notice any email whatsoever. I call their number the support girl was all like "wait...wait.."then put me on hold then come back and says they ll contact specialist department and they ll contact me and im thinking yea right with their suppor they could even just discard me and never reply.
So im using entropay vcc could that be a reason? What vcc are you guys suggesting? Note my account is Greek so no ssn although when i register it asks for id verification but their system only can accept one image so i go back into account setting and upload both sides of id from there. Never received a confirmation of id approval whatsoever. In fact i also tried the following as an experiment. I used a new buyer stealth account to buy my own item to see how it works with them then the payment was insstantly refunded back to paypal and i think this somehow caused this suspension trigger. Please note all payment go into directly etsy payment system since i can add bank accounts there and im getting approved.
Here is also another fact. Some weeks ago i had a sale on ebay and for some technical reasons paypal was refusing the buyer to make the payment so we agreed to make it through etsy i opened a stealth account loaded the bank there and got paid from him without issues. I called them earlier on the phone to find out all about fees and payment processing details, not sure if that played any role not to get banned but that was a new account and the payment was a 4 figure payment which paypal would most definitely keep and limit me but they didnt in fact they told me i could receive up to 50k in sales per month...which is wow for me comparing to ebay/paypal. Plus i can process paypal payments without dealing with paypal but all goes to etsy payment directly.
I need really an insight assistance on etsy to work around the ban problem i read other people threads here seems like they imposed some new "tracking mechanisms" since last month?
Sorry for long thread but tried to put as many details as i could hope someone can help me.

Hey Friend.
I have been making Etsy Stealth accounts for the last 4 years.

1- Entro pay cards work good without problem.
2- Make sure your paypal haves other business name
3- You must use new images and clean exif information
4- Create new user.

I personally dont have problems with ID verification, since the accounts i create for other people are based in my country they dont ask for ID. Also when i make sales on Etsy the money goes directly to my paypal account not to etsy.

I really dont have problems with eBay Stealth it works good for me.

I got an update. Etsy replied with email saying my account poses some high risk and they decided to take it down along with my listing so im assuming this has to do with the listing itself i asked them if theres any way i can restore the account, what do you guys think is it possible to restore it?

for such big transaction why even bother with etsy just open your own website and put up paypal buttons for customers to pay?

i don't understand the need to open an etsy shop to complete a transaction from ebay? just send him a paypal invoice.

No, your account is suspended and they wont reinstate. What is most stupid is you wasted an Etsy stealth just to make a sale from feEbay.

If you read my original post you would know that paypal was refusing the buyer to make the payment and denied him even after several calls. So i had to resort to etsy to make the transaction there as it covers credit cards and offer protection to the buyer since i dont own any other merchant type of account.
