    I need some ebay sellers to sell some items I have, I am proposing a selling structure as follows:

    £50 for first 10 sales a month
    £60 per sale after that up tp 20 sales
    all sales after that £70 commision

    These items are fairly new to ebay, they generate a lot of attention, between 40 to 50 watchers on a 5 day auction.

    I am willing to ship world wide, accounts with some feedback would be nice but not a must.

    I also have some other items with lower commision we can discuss.

    PM me or post below and I will get back to you

    Thanks

    What exactly are the items and how do you propose selling / JV?

    Do you want us to sell them via our account and collect $$$ etc, then forward you the balance and you ship them out?

    A little more info might help.

    Sorry my bad, I am proposing a drop ship type system.

    The item will be auctioned,
    You collect the $$$,
    You keep your commision and forward me the rest,
    I will ship the item.

    Thanks for the PM. I'm unable to reply directly.

    Can you confirm the price we sell for you on ebay is a set price? So for example: say item is meant to sell for £300 on ebay, do we have to pay you £250 for each item we sell to earn our £50 commission, or is the commission not based on a set sale price?

    i doubt this very much.

    Whats stopping you from refusing to ship your product if the auction ends for £50?

    As that would mean the guy who advertises it on ebay get the £50 comms, you have to send the item to customer and you get 0 money?

    I doubt that you will do this

    As long as my cost price and commision is covered, you will be paid, if the item sells for less, I will still cover the commision, if the seller continues to perform in this manner I will stop doing bussiness with them, but I will never leave someone hanging.

    Besides this can all be solved by setting a reserve on the auction.

    Can I ask how many of these items you have sold from your own eBay accounts? And what issues did you encounter? It seems a little risky to me now that I've looked into it. I've no doubt in the margins, but essentially there's risk of the users account on eBay being suspended as the items aren't genuine.

    This is why I passed on it after enquiring.

    I wish the best of luck to Lordstriker, but I can't risk losing my 10 year old eBay account with 1100+ feedbacks to make a quick buck, and I think I'm right in saying that it doesn't take many complaints from buyers before that happens.

    You guys are perfectly correct, but easy money dosent come with out some risk.

    I myself have a few accounts, I can sell 2 or 3 a week per account, but its just to slow, this is why im asking for more sellers...

    Selling 4 or 5 a week always results in flags, but I have sold over 30 copies so far, and had no complaints.
