Default Anyone successful with Etsy Stealth?

My first account was on no stealth. I was active for about 7 days, then I noticed my items were receiving 0 views. I contacted Etsy and asked whether my listings were indexed or not. They got back to me and said my account will be deactivated, and future accounts will also be deactivated.

So, I went stealth.

Changed my IP, created new accounts in google chrome, added different emails to paypal.

My first stealth account was selling the same items as my original account.

A day later, I am deactivated with another sent email, but with no explanation why.

I created another Etsy account with same method, this time different items that I had never before listed were added.

10 minutes later, I am unauthorised to access the account and I am deactivated, this time with no email.

Etsy Stealth is ALOT more difficult than ebay which is kinda scary.

No.

I run multiple stores with no issues at all. All going to the same PP account.

You are linking in some way.

How though? The only thing that is possibly linking are the photos they can see the which files and folders they are being retrieved from.

To have an account deactivated after 10 minutes of opening, means it is an obvious linking and they are 100% certain it is me. Which has me thinking, it is obviously not the title, not the description, and not the tags, since many items on etsy have similar titles, similar tags and similar descriptions, and no way they lead to 100% certainty.

Default Re: Anyone successful with Etsy Stealth?

Each one of my accounts resides in its own Windows user account with all new contact and payment info.

All pics, titles and descriptions are different. I do not pay extra for tags and keywords.

If you have anything branded or referencing protected names and brands, you're screwed. If your items aren't handmade and you are reported and subsequently manually reviewed, you're screwed.

I won't go into too much detail as I and others have laid out tons of info already and some people just want to run around in circles asking 1,000,000 questions.

I run Et.sy the same way I run EB, AZ or PP. All stea/lth methods work fine. There is nothing "extra" about Et/sy.

You only run et. sy for a limited time, the moment you are manually reviewed, you will be screwed too.

I am going to create a separate windows account, and create another account.

The thing is all my products are handmade, however I reside in australia and do the listings from here, while my sis in law in turkey ships them out. Could this be an issue? She does not understand english, so i have to do this.

It would only be an issue if someone manually reviewed your account.

You are having issues with instant bans, so the issue at the moment is something much simpler and you need to narrow that down first.

I tried to open shops on etsy (stealth account)

a) brand new images
b) new IP
c) new address, new name, new email
d) create a different windows user
e) cleared the image meta data

I use a vanilla master card (new one too)

but my account got deactivated within a few hours.

what i'm I doing wrong ??

Was the shop ever searchable? That is crucial in understanding what happened first.

Or someone already selling on etsy (competitor) spotted your new account and reported you (very very common with accounts that last a little longer), or a bot picked up too many similarities (accounts that last an hour) and a real live etsy thug looked into it and decided to can you (accounts that last a day).

I mean, did you literally attempt to search for your items within your own store or through marketplace search within the first 15-30 mins? If they were not visible, a bot is finding you first.
