Connected Accounts

eBay connected accounts are accounts where if one of the accounts gets suspended, all the other eBay accounts will get suspended as well. Because these accounts are linked

They are all under the same name, the same address, the same PayPal, and the same details.

Even if just one of these details is the same, eBay will recognize and link them.

If one of them gets suspended, all of the accounts will get suspended as well. Also, you can’t upload the same product to the other eBay linked accounts.

What is eBay Stealth Accounts?

Stealth accounts are accounts that are not linked. In other words, all the accounts are under different names, different IP addresses, and different browsers. It means that these accounts do not belong to the same person.

In today’s article, I want to show you 2 reasons why Stealth accounts are critical for your eBay business scaling.

– So the first reason is that you can duplicate your successful listings. For example, if one of your listings is working great for one of your stores, you can duplicate this listing using other stealth accounts. So you can make the profit from both accounts. This way, you can take the first few places of the search results on eBay. All with the same product but using different stores.

– The second reason is that when you work with eBay stealth accounts if one of your accounts got suspended, you can work on other accounts and take these accounts forward. It means that you will never be without income or work to do because if one of the accounts got suspended, you could make profits from the other account.

So this is the two major reasons why you should use eBay stealth accounts.

But if you are not working right with the stealth accounts, these accounts can be linked.

For example, duplicate listing between multiple stealth accounts.

We recommend you to always work with linked accounts and some stealth accounts.


To wrap it up, eBay stealth accounts are a great way to scale your dropshipping business. Now, if you want to continue expanding your knowledge and growing your business to new heights, be sure to read these articles:
