Default Can I ever withdraw more than $500?

Is there ever a time in the life of a stealth account when a withdrawal of over $500 can be made without raising any flags? How about if it is an account with EIN?

Once the account is established, Solid Feedback, Yes. I have 10 Stealth Accounts with around 30-40 Positive Feedback each, Over 6 Months Old, No 21 day holds and I have done withdrawals over $500 no problem.

Some sellers will say they have done over $500 with zero feedback, etc. It just depends who you ask.

There's no "safe" number. The more you withdraw, the higher the risk.

Hmmm I guess it risky. Double edged sword... The more established the account the better chances you have but with more to lose. Maybe I will give it a shot with one account and slowly increase my withdrawals. How should I schedule the increases? $100 a week?

Thanks for your input. Do you withdraw over $500 regularly? How much more do you withdraw, if you dont mind. My account is about 6 months old and I have withdrawn $500 weekly...Thanks

If this was my account: I wouldn't increase the amount, I would increase the frequency of the withdrawals to more than once a week.

Just remember, PayPal likes to see a nice cushion left in the account to cover returns/refunds.

I'm trying to weight out the differences between withdrawing by frequency vs quantity. How much of a "cushion" would you suggest I keep in the account?

Where's that suggested?

Minimum of $200 was suggested.

No mention of a sub figure

Ok based on my most recent sales from the past month, the average value of each item being sold is around $40. I sell about 50 items daily and have been keeping an average of about $4000 USD in my PayPal account. The Paypal account is about 6 months old. Since the account has opened I have withdrawn $500 USD weekly on a regular basis. I would like to withdraw more I it is safe to do so. If I were to do so, I am unsure of how much of an increase I should apply to the $500.

That is good, if you are withdrawing $500 a week with all that successful transactions on your account, I think you are safe to do the $500 twice a week, do not forget to put tracking number all the time

That would be a nice increase, what does everything else think about that idea?

What I do is, I make a small withdrawal like $40-$60 and wait for it to be clear. Then I make a withdrawal around $200-$300 and repeat it for couple of times. And then around $600.

Conclusion : Rapidly increase withdrawal amount, It will not flag your account.

I slowly drain it out in one go... with withdrawals spaced only minutes apart. Say for instance I receive a payment of £500. I will withdraw 400 firstly, then 80 from the remaining 100, then 16 from the 20 but after that I will maybe stop there and leave the last 4 since as you all know I am so kind to PayPal.

I never do more than 80% in a single withdrawal and never have a problem.

Ok I'm going to start Increasing on my accounts. I am going to keep it steady within each Paypal account but as random and different as possible amongst accounts. I figured I would wait a few weeks between accounts, increase by different amounts, and withdraw on different days.

How often do you withdraw though?

Weekly? Monthly?

I have withdrawn over 15k a handful of times. I usually leave 2-3k in the account and take out once I hit 10k. I withdraw about 5 or so times a month, and I have never had any issues.
