Default need help with etsy stealth

hi,

yesterday i got suspended from etsy.

it was my only source of income.
i was just wondering if anyone could tell me step by step how to open up a new store without being caught? my shop was very successful.had 7000 sales but i kept getting flagged by people..

im not planning on staying on etsy forever..just long enough to gain customers while i open my own website..so if anyone can help me start a new account that will last up to a year id be very very very grateful

will i need to make a new paypal? or can i just change the email address associated with my already existing paypal account?

i have a laptop i think i logged into my etsy once with a few years ago..i am planning on using that computer solely for the stealth etsy shop.

thank you so very much for all your help

Sorry to hear about your troubles.

No, you must make a new paypal account for etsy.

You must make a new you.

Even that laptop should be 'cleaned up' and reformatted. Again you need to look like a new you.

Read over the forum about making new ebay accounts. That works for etsy. When you have read, come back to this thread.

We can talk further about what you have found out.

Opening a New Stealth Etsy Store is No Harder or Different form opening a Stealth eBay Account,,Follow the same rules and you should be fine,,,

It seems to me from your post that your problem is NOT creating a Stealth account,,,rather keeping it from getting flagged by other users,,,I honestly cannot understand why users would flag an account on Etsy, given that there is really no brand named merchandise available for sale,,,or am I wrong about this?,,,,what is the reason that you are getting Flagged?,,,Whatever it is,,I think that you need to fix that FIRST,,,the rest will be easy

Learn stealth method of eB and you can apply many of the principles to etsy. Will take some time - practice and understand.

All the best moving forward

Slapped is right, as usual. It sounds like the challenge here will not be creating the stealth account, but keeping it. Ideally, you should try to change whatever was getting you flagged in the first place.

Also, if your items are totally original and you open another account, that might be a HUGE red flag for Etsy. If you have several items, then consider creating a few stealth accounts. That spreads your risk, and if one gets shut down, you still have the others.

It NEVER Dawned on me as to how EASY it would be for Etsy to link a Current account to a Suspended account because of the Potential uniqueness of the items that the account holder may be selling,,,,,,,,,,,,

REAL GOOD Point Jeff,,,,,all you Etsy Stealthers out there should remember this,,,

Etsy has cliques.

Groups of sellers get together and gang-up on 'rivals'.

Nasty pieces too.

Etsy deals with this in an even more appalling way than ebay.

In the majority of cases, etsy says there is no issue(s). They delete shops, close accounts.
Rare to get a word of explanation.

To be blunt, the cliques I mentioned in the last post CRUISE etsy looking.

They then bait you with emails....

Then they escalate to the killing of an account.

It be war!

hi!

i've been reading alot about the steps to take but i had a few question still since ebay is a little different than etsy

will i have to make a new paypal address? can i change my original account to a different email address to just make it appear different? im not sure if etsy will be able to tell that its still the same paypal..since etsy is a separate company and im guessing paypal has some sort of privacy protection from other websites i am hoping lol..ill get a new paypal if i have to

i have verizon as my internet service provider and i did an internet search on how to change the ip address with verizon..and no one has any answers..can i use a web based proxy like hidemyass.com?

also i was wondering if i erase all the cookies from my existing computer..and use hidemyass.com..will that work? if i can still manage to use my work computer that would be super convinient for me..so if theres a way id like to manage it to

thank you so very much everyone..thank you so much for answering my questions i truly appreciate it..i went from a very sad gloomy situation to being very hopeful that there is still a way i can continue to do what i love..im so grateful

avoid that site. dangerous for stealth.

check with your webmaster if you can do such things to a work computer. Avoid that program. Never recommended for stealth.

It is doable. It will take your time & hard work. You are off to a good start.

I absolutly do NOT understand what the Facination is with this damn TOR Browser,,,it is NOT Goood for Stealth,,It have been PROVEN Over and Over,,,Different Windows User Accounts, VM, and all of the other Techniques described in both The stealth guide and Amazon Ghost, these are the methods that have been proven, and CONTUNIUE to be proven effective,,,So Please all of you Motherf^ck#ers that are here trying to "Reinvent the wheel",,,go do it elsewhere, because all you will accomplish is to confuse some poor Sucker User reading some of these Posts to use the TOR browser and lose an account

Either get a new internet provider...or get a dongle...or use your smartphone to tether...or (ugh) try dial-up.

You may have to invest some money to get this dynamic IP - you have already tried turning your modem off - waiting 5 or so min - turning back on to check IP?

I would just add, if anyone is reading this and thinking of using the TOR network, DON'T!

TOR is good for keeping you anonymous if, for example, you simply don't want something traced back to you - like anyone ever finding out that you surfed some porn sites or stuff like that. eBay/Amazon/PayPal and ANY financial institution websites will immediately shut down any accounts it detects are using the TOR network.

The only sales site allowing TOR is the Silk Road, but that is mostly a marketplace for illegal drugs and I would stay FAR AWAY from it! I know that a couple of Senators have asked law enforcement to shut it down and I'm sure it is just a matter of time. And since TOR was developed by the US Military, I wouldn't be surprised if they had a way of tracing information backwards if they had to.

PUT SIMPLY, TOR IS DANGEROUS!
