Default Using ip address in different location.

Hi. I have a question. I use VPN to access my eBay Stealth account. It is Dedicated IP address.

When I check my IP address using whatismyip.com and other services, it says i'm located in New york. But my eBay Stealth account's home address that i have bought in forum is Seattle.

NY and Seattle are in same country, but it's too long distance between NY and Seattle. Ebay and paypal will suspend my stealth account?

So long as the IP address is in the same country its pretty much OK.

My IP shows up as hundreds of miles away from where I am actually located sometimes.

NJ and California are about the same distance as NY/Seatte, yet it has been working fine without issues for me.

Geolocatoin is not reliable enough for Ebay/PP to use.

Ideally, you want the IP address to be in the same general area as your stealth address, but it is not the end of the world if it is not.

They really don't have any way (that I know of) to tell exactly where you are using technical means. They rely on a database of IP's in which the ISP lists their location. But IP addresses change hands, providers merge and go out of business and the IP's get spread around. So, the current Geolocation methods are only as reliable as the database updates which are not all that reliable to begin with.

If you create a new stealth account, I would try to create it in the same area as the IP, but I wouldn't abandon this account. It is doubtful that it would be closed for that alone. If there were other issues, eBay might look at the IP, but if the account has no other issues I wouldn't worry about it.

I use IPs for my US accounts from all over the country - out of state. Same for Canada, same for other countries...just keep track of the IPs OP.
