Default Paying supplier via stealth accounts

Hello all,

I would appreciate some advice regarding stealth accounts and my supplier.

Is it safe to pay my supplier with funds from my stealth accounts? The supplier is in china, & I usually pay them with my main paypal account, but now I'm realizing I should just use the stealth funds to pay them, as long as its safe. This china supplier probably gets many paypal payments a day, but I still felt that I had to ask for any advice out there.

I have 3 stealth accounts that have been active since February, 1 out of the 3 is verified with a virtual bank, and each have sold about 20 items since February.

Right now, all 3 accounts have about $400 each. The most I've sent from these accounts is $150. Since 2 of the accounts are still unverified (no bank), the transactions would be a non verified US account sending payment to a non verified china account.

If it is safe to pay them with the stealth accounts, what amount would you suggest? For example, is it safe to send $130-150 every 2 days or should I start with $50 payments every 2 or 3 days?

Most suppliers (that will accept paypal) will only ship to the address on your paypal account. Chinese suppliers are terrified of chargebacks and if they shipped to some random address not attached to your paypal account, you could easily open an INR case with paypal and get your money back. So for that reason, I doubt your supplier will let you pay with a stealth account.

I've sent payments up to $3k with fairly new (4-5 month old, but bank verified) paypal accounts and I've never had a problem. Anything higher than that I use western union for because P/P fees are outrageous. If it is a supplier you trust you could always withdraw your funds and pay with W/U if you're afraid to send large amounts with paypal. Personally I think you would be fine to send $400, that's nothing. Plus your P/P is almost a year old. But your Chinese friend may not be cool with it.

Ok thanks, and as for the other 2 non verified accounts, I will be verifying them with banks this week.

I always do this, send from 5-10 accounts 500-1000$ each within a few hours, probably best to spread it a little if you want to be 100% safe but I've not had any issues

I do it that way also.

I deal with long term repeat suppliers, and they're fine with it. I send an email that says, "Sent: Payment #1 411.00 via Paypal transaction ID XXXXXX, Sent: Payment #2 $317.00 via Paypal Transaction ID XXXX", etc. and let them apply it properly.

It's a great way to clear out all those accounts with balances that for one reason or another are hard to get to.

Keep in mind that there's no reason to assume that mismatched names aren't just other legitimate accounts you have control over, which is true.

I occasionally have gotten multiple payments from people whose names don't match, maybe other stealthers, who knows, but I've never had an issue and I do 500-1000 transactions a month.

But I deal in small ticket items, and a small loss rate is built into my margin.

Thanks for all suggestions folks. Just as an update


Using 1 account, I sent $80 to China and was limited 20 hours later. This account has been open since March with over 20 sales.

Using a 2nd account, I sent $70 and then another $340 to China and the account has NOT been limited. This account has been open since February with over 25 sales.

Feels like I deployed troops to Normandy Beach. RIP to my wounded limited stealth account (we will never forget) and blessings to my other stealth account that made the payment safely(you are so brave).
