Default TornadoAlert system for sale!

So I listed a like new TornadoAlert system on Ebay for $40, and if anyone wants to buy it, I need the money to pay for go kart stuff.
MSRP is $85! It's $40!
Just so you know, the TornadoAlert does not run on internet or anything, and it accepts a battery backup besides the wall adapter.
I am not affiliated with the company that produces TornadoAlert systems in any way.
Please support a 12 year old that needs money for karting!

Also I will soon list some Aukey electronic products such as a power bank, a USB hub, and a USB car charger.

Well I think we had like a class 0 tornado here in NY like 6 years ago....I'm sure it would have helped then!

I just set it up? I'm above average intelligence for my age(trying not to brag), but it really wasn't that hard. I set it up like any of y'all would!

We always check what percent positive feedback the seller has, as well as how many items they've sold.

No no no, I wasn't trying to insult your intelligence.

But for a PayPal account, you have to be 18 years old.

So I was wondering how you managed to get around that

You can buy on eBay with a credit card, but if you sell something you have to have a PayPal account to get paid.

Not to be a downer, but I have known a few people on FB who have gotten banned for life from PayPal because PayPal realized they were under 18 when they made the account. Just be careful...

LOL, yeah but at some point you'll need to verify your PP account, and they use your SS number for that. Theoretically they could see your birthday on that and when you actually set up the account and then ban you. That's basically what happened to the guys I know on Facebook.

Probably won't happen, but setting up a PayPal/eBay account with a fake birthday might not end well.

Yeah I just buy stuff with my account and use my dads to sell stuff. Its better that way anyway cause he's been a member for like 10 years and has 100% positive feedback so people always buy my stuff
