Default Did I make any mistakes? What next?

Alright! So here goes, I've just got myself back on eBay after a 3 year ban over 3 of my accounts. I followed the stealth guide and hopefully all has gone well.

It's practically impossible for me to use our IP from home given that my brother is a deviant for messing everything up, so I decided I'd use my iPhone's 3G as a Personal Hotspot to list items (Listing them on an iPad to try to avoid any chances of being tracked back).

A few things I've been worried about were:
I managed to verify the Paypal, however at one point it asked me to verify my details, then told me it couldn't confirm them. I logged out and back in and this went away. Just curious if this is anything to become worried about?

I've not been asked to input any details to do with a card. I've verified my bank account which I recently set up but I've not been asked to verify a card. I've got two prepaids at the ready - is it worth going ahead and putting one on? I couldn't help but feel that if they're not asking for it I shouldn't put it on, especially since I assume prepaids can look suspicious.

What should my listing schedule be like? I'm not a businessman, I'm a student with a huge load of things I need to sell (Notably 200+ vintage boardgames which would have to be listed as BIN at £20-30, couldn't help but feel this'd catch their eye). Right now I've listed 6 items (scheduled) for tonight. They're general household/electronics items that should fetch about £50 each.

Should I really be trying to pace myself? Should I just go for it? (Not full throttle, but put 5 or so £50 items on a week?)

Just looking for some reassurance if anything. I'm going to set up 2 more stealth accounts to just sit back and age and always be prepared to be banned I guess. How long do these accounts typically last?

Once an item's sold, is it sensible or suspicious for me to just instantly withdraw my Paypal balance?

Last thing on a related note, I've got a limited Paypal from over a year ago which has £55 in. I can't find a way to withdraw it, will I be able to? I managed to withdraw from another account a year or so ago but this one seems to have no options.

Whose Stealth Book have you followed?

Your efforts are a bit short to hope to have a long term account.

What have you done about name and address, for starters?

If you have used old info, you risk being linked.

Welcome to the forums.

All the best as you read around - forget the past and aim for stealth.

Suspicious. Very.

your plan to use your 3g ip is good (although if your home ip is changing/dynamic there should not be an issue with that).

selling that sort of stuff can be done on a non aged account, just avoid any brand names but I agree to pace yourself. They are always suspicious of you within month 1 but once you have a few sales and feedback they relax...

you may have 21 day holds until feedback/tracking issued.

withdraw straight away? if you do withdraw, leave enough for fees and a couple of refunds in the balance do not clean it out.

as for your other account that cannot withdraw, assuming a bank is added, have you contacted paypal? have you had any emails from them?
Be careful about logging in to a banned acc whilst making new accs in case of a link slip-up.

how long do they last? they can last for years/indefinately...I think they are always slightly more vunerable though...

Yes, there are several ficticious versions that a lot of new members have. They believe they will get more assistance if they say they have already read the guide.
