Hi Everyone,

I suspect I'm not alone in this, but I recently had an account restriction on eBay. I've asked for an escalation after a "chat" with their customer support, but I'm not holding my breath. I found this forum a few months ago while looking in to creating multiple accounts, and had never even heard of stealthing. In hindsight, I should have bought the guide and started doing it right away, but I figured it was the refuge of hooligans and scammers (sorry), but boy was I wrong! One of my accounts was suspended (with no explanation of course), and they have imposed restrictions on all the linked accounts now. I was starting to shop for cars as well too with all that extra eBay money coming in!

The plan now is to start from scratch on eBay (in stealth), while building a presence outside of eBay. I wasn't making enough to retire on or anything, but I'm going to miss having the play money from the side hustle. Now that I've had a taste though, I won;t be able to let it go easily!

Onward and upwards!

Cheers,
MM

Welcome to the forum

Ebay and paypal can be ruthless when they want to be. Best to learn from it moving forward. You've found the right place.

It's funny, the chat rep said something about "learning from my mistakes" and it came off as super patronizing, from you it sounds a lot more encouraging!

I've read that it's not just PayPal and eBay either, there was an article in Wired not too long ago about how Amazon can be just as arbitrary. If I recall the guy they interviewed had like 55 employees, and the 2 weeks it took to escalate within Amazon cost him something like $100K.

Amazon is actually 50x worse with arbitrary unjustified account actions.

I wouldn't recommend going there unless you have a solid full time business plan.
