    As my post title states, i see many of you here who say that you have advanced experience and have made millions on Ebay and since this forum is about talking on tactics i think its time we actually spoke about something like that. I actually have over 10 years of experience but this one is giving me trouble to figure out. So this guy is selling hundreds of items on .99 auctions yet not one item closes without a sale and prices are very decent and a lot of people bid. How is this possible? does anyone know what kind of tactic is done here? I see about 2500 feedback a month that is an amazing number. I want to do something similar to this but i am having trouble copycatting the tactic as i usually get 0-1 bidders and prices stay relatively low compared to this and a few similar sellers.any advice?

    Looks like he's Indian and has been selling since 2002. That's 14 years on Ebay.

    Do you think there is a loyal following on Ebay? Is that the success key here? Dont people look at the price more than who is selling? When i start .99 auctions i barely get bids but guys like this have at least 4-5 bids on their products.

    With over 14 years of selling, he may have been collecting customers emails from previous sales and he emails them when the auction goes up. It is most likely for an item that is something similar to the item that they bought from him before. When a buyer pays via Paypal, you get an email from them with their email address. Collect those for a few years and just keep pounding them with cheap shit to sell.

    look at his reputation though.

    The first 10 are the same person, he has multiple re-peats. I would assume he has someone order multiple items that he pays for at the the lower price and just has them give feedback.
    Thats a good way to get mass good feedback
