Default Newbie Nightmares..

HI all,

Ive read the stealth guide and been lurking on the forum. I think Ive followed the steps correctly but keep having issues. I have been making ebay accounts and leaving them to age, then after 3-6 months ive opened some up to get some activity with a view to start selling soon, after buying a few cheap items and trying to get feedback over 10 I sell my first item- usually some low risk, cheap, used item from around the house, just to get the first sale on the board. The plan is then to leave it for a bit and go back after a couple of weeks and gradually pick up the pace....the problem is out of the 10 accounts Ive got as far as listing on, 6 were suspended as soon as I listed something.

Any ideas where I am going wrong? I dont think its a linking thing as all the accounts that list would be suspended?

How does everyone else go from brand new account to selling regularly?

Any advice would be hugely appreciated

You're likely doing something wrong.

List step by step what you're doing, so we can tell you where you may be going wrong.

OK,

For my internet access I use a portable modem with sim card to change IP.
set up portable firefox browser like in the guide on the thread below:
https://www.aspkin.com/forums/multip...r-account.html

When I set up a new ebay / paypal / email I copy and paste a new portable firefox folder. I always change the IP address.

After I set up the ebay & paypal I do some browing on ebay and watch some items then leave it for a few months. Then I go back and do I bit more browsing, then buy about £25-£50 worth of low value items until I get 10 feedback. (I use a prepaid gift card via PayPal to pay for them)

Then I start browsing seller help section and then next day I list first item.

When I first started opening the accounts I was using the windows user account way to keep cookies seperate, but now I have started doing the postable firefow way. So the ones I made in their own user accounts are a bit older. I made postable firefoxes for them and transferred the accounts over to them...but all of those were closed. The ones that were made straight onto to the portable firefox have had a higher survival rate (as in, not 100% death rate lol)

Use user accounts. One user account, per stealth account. It's so much more safer and easier, especially for those who are new to this.

Remember, buying and selling are different on eBay. Don't think buying something will make things easier when it comes to selling later.

I think from the sound of things, its the portable browser giving you issues. Do as above, and report back how things go. You don't need to wait 3 to 6 months before you start selling. So long as the item in question is low risk etc.

How long would you suggest waiting before selling after opening account if its low risk?

Is it not really necessary to have any buyer feedback before starting to sell?

Usually just 2 weeks is fine

What is the limitation you are getting? Is it just an MC113?

Welcome to the forum - all the best as you master stealth

I usually wait about 2-4 weeks before selling while lightly browsing and building cookies on the account OP

No the latest ones dont have a code on them (although ive had a few mc113's).
This is the message I get:

" Your eBay account has been suspended


Hello rxxxxxxx,

Your eBay account was suspended because recent account activity has raised serious security concerns. We've taken this precaution to protect our members while we make sure that the activity doesn't cause harm -- however unintentionally -- to the eBay Community.

You won't be able to use eBay in any way. This includes using another existing account or registering a new account.

Any outstanding selling fees are due immediately, and any amounts that you haven't previously disputed will be charged to the billing method currently on file.

Regards,

eBay Customer Service"

Does this indicate linking?

I would use user accounts first and then you may want to look at a VPN as well

Then try again, but only wait 2 weeks until you list your first item. Find something really generic (a wooden spoon etc) and list that then see how you get on

That is possible as it will look like feedback manipulation

I would avoid anything to do with digital goods at the start of the accounts life.

Go straight into selling something really low risk- dont bother messing around with buyer feedback?

Many people don't bother with buyer feedback - I usually like to buy a few small items to get some feedback, just for my own experience.

Thanks guys,

Another issues im having both with the normal windows user account methhod and when I did the portable firefox- when I log back in after a week or so after setting up. The gmail attached to it is usually disabled with this message:
"It looks as though this account was associated with multiple other accounts, or created by a program, and used to violate Google’s policies. Learn more
If you think this was a mistake, try to restore your account by submitting a request for review.
We understand that what's in your account is important, so you can also download your data for some Google services."

Do most people use gmail? I know I could just switch to one of the others but im so used to gmail and have experience using it to manage multiple emails.

Hi all,

First time posting on the forum.

I'm going to buy the guide.

I understand the general principle of how to set up the account and how to start running it.
My question is how do I get round paypal's photo id requirement once I have reached my 2.500 euro limit?
