How is he gonna recive payment? Paypal gives away the sellers identidy.
Good point.

Either way, its gonna be harding faking your info on ebay and paypal, as they work hard to stop fraud, and someone with fake name ect, is the first step to fraud.

I get a few fraudulent payments a week, and paypal usually notifies me minutes later, warning not to ship out the package...

Besides, once you have 1 ebay account already it is difficult to open a second... I have the book in a .pdf that writes how to open a second ebay account under a new identity... (For someone that their original account was suspended)

If you were to follow all the steps, and it will currently work for you, IMHO I don't think it will last too long, as ebay eventually will realize.

I have had my account suspended in the past because they linked me to a suspended ebay account of my wife...

What does that mean? If pp knows that its a fake account,  why don't they shut down the account  before the guy makes any payments?

These fraudulent payments are - someone that hacks into someone elses paypal account and uses that to pay for an ebay item ... And this paypal catches really quickly

I ship a lot Internationally, I usually mark the items a little lower to save they buyer on some custom fees.

I dont know if you ever shipped internationally, and what service you plan on using .... USPS Priority Mail is pretty cheap (FC Mail is cheaper) make sure to insure it.

He is a 0 feedback buyer, and there is some change that he is stealing someones CC to make the purchase (I get that a lot) but if the Paypal transaction comes up as  Eligible for seller protection than there is nothing to worry about.

Either way as of May-16 you will not be able to ship items that contain Li-ium batteries via USPS internationally

Quich Question:
I sold 5 things on ebay last week NOT ONE of the buyers left me feedback!! I know they received their items 3-4 days ago because they all had tracking numbers
I sold these items at a slight loss because i'm trying to build up my rep as a seller, so this is very annoying!
I left them all good feedback...
what gives?

Message them and ask for it.

+1 Just send a friendly reminder that feedback is appreciated. Sometimes it takes people a while. And other times they never leave feedback.

60 days from the end of the auction, IIRC.

Personally I wait a while before leaving feedback as that it the best leverage I've got if there is a problem.

I bought something on eBay described as follows:

Quote
I purchase store displays, overstocks and last seasonís items. All packages/tags will be marked in some manner to prevent a store return - Usually with a black marker through the bar code.  The Outside Packaging has been Removed for Shipping.

When I got the item, the box has a green sticker (tht someone tried to peel/scratch off) that says "SALVAGE". What does that mean?

While you establish a successful sales history on eBay, in most cases, funds from eBay sales are available in 21 days - or sooner, based on how you ship the order. To help get your funds faster, print your shipping labels on eBay or PayPal, upload your tracking information, or mark the items as shipped on eBay. If your buyer reports a problem, it may take longer to get your funds.
