Exclamation Safe PayPal limits for young accounts? Stealth & EIN

Hey guys, I've been stealthing for about two years successfully, sometimes unsuccessfully... its definitely been a learning experience.

Question Im asking about my new accounts is the amount of sales that are "safe" and if adding an EIN would have any effect on these brand new paypals. I have searched around and Im not getting definitive answers. I purchased the book, but i believe a lot of information is outdated.

while most of the accounts I'm working with will have the 10/1k standard, I'm also trying to attain the coveted 100/5k limit. Wouldn't the 21 day hold protect against raising flags for too many sales? Especially with a new EIN account?

thanks

Attaching an EIN to an account does nothing but allow the seller to sell more then 200 item or 20k a YEAR.

- I would NEVER attach an EIN to a new account, UNTIL it is a solid establish account with lifted limits, no holds, etc.

You want 100/5k limit? max your selling monthly limits and hope for the best.

Be smart about your selling strategy.
List small affordable items, do your best to get 5+ stars, + Positive feedback.

Stay away from Trademarked items ( VERO )

Good luck.

That won't affect your eB limits.

Some have reported holds even on non ebay sales.

You cannot go taking in a ton of money into a new or newer paypal even outside of ebay sales. You can toast the account real quick doing that.

right, which is why I'm wondering what the correct ramp up rate would be

if its a business EIN account, obviously those limits are going to be higher... but some basic guidelines are what I'm looking for. Too much general info around here, maybe someone can be kind enough to send a PM

Im active on lots of other forums, mostly with my car scene right now. I tune and configure Lancer Evolutions and there is definitely a lot of information that you have to work for, but mainly the extreme intricate details is what is not spoon fed... there is a wide-known limit to our engines and 400 Ft-lbs of torque will generally blow a hole in your block. So we all stay below 400 on the stock internals.

does anyone know the safe numbers? or could give a good suggestion? (I'm looking at your pretty face there Sandy)

would a good pattern be a exponential growth curve? 250-500-1000-2000-4000-8000?

I'm looking to bring in around 10k a month on my EIN accounts (shooting for 3), and $1500 a month on my full stealth accounts (probably going to have a dozen or so)

I have 3 EIN accounts myself and one of them I fully verified the PP account, added the EIN, and let it sit for a week before opening the eB account... I still started @ 10/1k limits

So since I had nasty ebay limits each account had the curve set in place for me. I had to deal with 10/1k limits for 3 months on each account but then two of them went to 100/5k with one going to 250/10k, then 2 months later I got TRS on all of them and they went above 1k listings / $20k in limits.

I did ~300-400$ in sales each month for the first three months, then ~1k after my first increase and after my big increase, I'm doing 5-8k sales per month, per account, without issue.

Best tip I can give on ebay side of things is it's all about the customer and the service you provide; they are your lifeline and those shiny 5.0 DSR positive feedbacks are the key to a highly valued and secure ebay account. Bend over backwards for them in the early months because that's when your account(s) are most vulnerable.

EIN accounts are definitely cool and make you (or at least me) feel legitimate, but don't forget to have a stealth farm in the back for added security

ah. well, I'm hoping that i can at least have a couple EIN accounts with some decent limits that can accelerate the process of getting up to speed, as it seems like EIN-right away PP's will obviously have less restriction than ones without
