What is a proxy? What is Firefox portable? And how both these things will help you to scale your eBay business using eBay stealth accounts?
in this article, I will show you how to work with eBay stealth accounts and what is the most important thing which you need to know when you work with eBay stealth accounts.
The most important thing is Firefox portable or any different browser and a proxy, I will show in this article how to work with these things and why they are so important, so let’s start.
The first thing which you need to have is a different browser, separated browser from your current browser which you use for your current account and for any stealth account you will need to have another browser and I will show you how to solve all these problems.
So i am working with mac, this is why I right in google “Firefox portable Mac”, but you can just write Firefox portable and you will get the same browser just for your operating system, so I go to the first result, then I go to the first option and I will just wait until the download starts and the file will be downloaded to my computer.
After the download finished I will have this file, Firefox Portable, and will open the file, in Windows you will have an exe file so we can just install it, so i am in mac I will copy the file to the Applications folder.
Now I have here this folder Firefox portable, I will extract it again to the applications, now an icon like this which I created now, every time when you click the X the file and installing it this is another account, another user so if I want to have one stealth account so I will create rename the Firefox title to Lior for example and I can duplicate it as many times as I want.
Every account will have the store’s name as the Firefox title just for our comfort, so I will call this one Lior 2, so now we have the application we have the other browser which we can open and use for any of our accounts, again every different account has its own browser it doesn’t matter if you’re on Windows or on Mac you need to install Firefox portable.
The other option is just to create another user on Windows and have its own Firefox but this way I found is much more comfortable and this is how I teach everyone to use, so I will open this application this Firefox portable, as you can see the browser opened here.
After I opened here the browser I need to configure something on it which called proxy, what is a proxy? With Firefox we can now browse from other cookies and other data so eBay will not know that we are the other accounts, this is what means stealth accounts but we have another thing which called our IP address, IP address is how we go outside to the network it’s like our address of our computer so we need to change this IP address so if I go to site like WTF is my IP i will see my address as Israel and my IP address where I sit.
Now I want to change this IP address for this we have services which doesn’t cost a lot of money around two dollars per month which means two dollars per stealth account so let’s go to the site Proxy N VPN and click register.
I’m already connected to my account so all you need to do is to register and finish the registration process, you just need to fill the details, first name, last name, company name, email address a password, fill the CAPTCHA and click register.
After that, you will need to verify your account by going to your email address and verify it and then you need to purchase proxy, so which type of proxies we have?
The first one is shared proxies, proxy it’s one IP address which shared between many people this type of proxy is not good for us and it’s very dangerous for us because when we use shared proxy it’s possible that someone else also use the same shared proxy to access eBay and if their account gets banned from eBay our account also will be affected from this.
So shared proxies is not good for us we need something which called private proxies, the private proxy is a proxy which is private it’s only for us not for anyone else so how we obtain a private proxy?
We go to buy proxies and click private proxies here we will just buy one proxy, it’s one per eBay user actually so I mean click order now and after a few minutes we will see the proxy under our proxies, our proxies are here under my proxies.
Sometimes it takes more than a few minutes and it can a few hours but you will finally see that the proxy is assigned to your account if not you always can create a support ticket on their site.
So this is how the proxy looks, we can see here the IP address the port this is the two things which you need, so for the proxy we have two types of authentication the first one is IP address and the second one is username and password I will choose the username and password and click set up.
Now this process can take few minutes until this password and username are set up for our account, so this process can take up to 10 minutes we just wait and then we will be able to log in with these details, but how to use it?
Now we will take the IP address from here this is the address which the eBay and Google and any other site will see our computer, I will go to Firefox I go here to the top to preferences then I go to an advanced and then go to connection then click settings.
Here you should click the manual proxy configuration option and put here the IP address and the port which we got from the proxy and VPN site, then just check use this proxy server for all protocols and click OK.
Now you can surf again to what the is my IP dot-com WTF is my IP now as you can see how I go from different address from this IP, as you can see this IP is the same IP which I got from proxy and VPN site.
Now eBay does not know that I am from the same Mac or the same computer which I used before with the previous account, because now the browser is different and the IP address is different all you need to be aware is not to log in from the same browser to different stealth accounts.
So now we have a different browser and a different IP address from on the previous article we talked about what you need to have different phone numbers, different address and different names so now we covered from all of the places and from anything.
So all you need to know is that you need to split the browsers ,split the proxies, if you put the proxy one time in the configuration which I showed you it always will go from this IP so you will be safe for question about monitors when you use AutoDS or any other tool it goes all from the eBay’s API which means that you’re safe and it doesn’t matter if you use many stealth accounts from the same browser.
So I hope that this article helped you. Don’t forget to share this article with your dropshippers friends, write in the comments if you are using stealth accounts and if this article helped you or not.
