Default What do you do after you reach 20k selling limit on stealth acc?

What ive read so far is that after you are close to 20k in sales or at 20k in sales. Eb*y/pp start to ask for info such as SSN and all this crap. Since most of us are on stealth accounts. What are our choices? As far as i can see this means the accounts is done and over with b/c we cant provide the info. Right?

Its actually 20k AND 200 items.... Yes stay under 20k and start with that account again in January.... Use stealth accounts.... Plus you will have a wonderful eb account next year. Just keep enough room for some activity here and there....

And both thresholds have to be met, so you can sell $50,000 but if you sell less than 200 items you are good

I'm wondering how close to the limit before they ask? I'm around $16k and I am ready to let it hang for next 7 months....

I think it depends on what your sales were the previous year. I think JeffWieco said he got the notice at $13,000.00.

there seems to be no set formula for when they ask. I sweat every time I log in. if you total in all your fees from ebay, and paypal, you may be pretty close to that 20k. I'd let it go into hibernation till next year, and make another account.

Check your seller dashboards, it will show where you stand each month on your evaluation. $20,000 AND 200 items. You can go over 200 items only if you stay under $20,000 in revenue.

Sometimes it's 20k and 200 items, other times they can get you for 10-14k. No one here is 100% safe using the stealth methods when it comes to taxes, if they want to get you, THEY WILL. I'd pay taxes anyway just to be on the safe side if you're making $400, or more yearly, just for profitable items, not items you sell laying around your house.

I just listed 350 items, but I have no idea about my limits per month, I usually sell about 5k per month but I'm sure this month Im gonna sell 3 times more, what would you consider it is a safe $$$ in sales per month to be under the radar with ebay and paypal and avoid documents requests or limits?......I'm toprated seller with solid feedbacks.....I usually stop at 5k, but maybe I can reach 10k, 15k ......please let me know guys....thank you in advance......

Might as well toss a dart.

Of course eb has no constant way of doing anything.

For me I stop listing on several accounts once I get close to the 15k range.

Will let them sit until next year other then logging on once in a while to look items over, check on competition and put some items on my watchlist.

I wouldn't go completely out of control unless you are TRS with feedback in the thousands.

A TRS account can easily do 5 figures per month and be ok as long as feedback (a few hundred or more is ok) and DSR's are top shape and little to no open cases. They let you list 350 items and all is well so just stay on your game and be very responsive to customers.

Hi thanks for you help guys, I just checked my dashboard and there aren't monthly selling limits, I read somewhere else that if your montly selling limit doesn't appear in your dashboard it is because you have no limits.....is it true????. I got confused once again about my monthly sales once again, would you recommend me sell 5k or a bit more in my account every month to keep it under the radar?? Or sell 15k in that account and cool it down for the rest of the year???? thanks a lot

I got the email saying I am about to reach $20,000 today. Can I just open a new PP account to accept payment? I guess I can have 2 accounts, one personal one premium under each @@@@ info, right?

NO.

Earn money pay taxes.

See an accountant to work out the specifics EVEN FOR STEALTH>

Pay attention to this. You still need to pay taxes.
