Spread the seeds on soil, keep them moist and warm, and wait. It can take a long time for them to germinate, and it will take a very long time for them to grow into adult plants.

If this is seed of ebay, it probably isnt raja.

 Most probably a lowlander, or maybe not even nepenthes.

True but it is still another nepenthes to add to my collection

The problem is that you could have paid a scammer too much money for something you won't know is wrong till it's far too late (unless the seeds are obviously not Nepenthes) and you can no longer get your money back or leave a bad review, thereby both getting ripped off and supporting these practices. That said I must have missed the part where you wrote that you got them on eBay.

There us a guy in ebay from sri lanka selling edwardsiana, raja seeds etc, it's a scam.  If they are nepenthes then probably most likely they will be distillatoria which is a sri-lankan native.  It will be years before you know and if you try to grow them as a highlander they wont survive anyway.
