    I have a 2400 feedback (100%) eBay account that was created in 1997 and has been extremely active. I am interested in making a few bucks, but I do not know where to start. This is my parents account, and I would hate to ruin the perfect reputation. Thus, I need genuine products. I am not interested in moving a large volume of products. Also, I would not like to dropship. I just want to send it out from my location, and hold physical inventory. I know this can be risky, but it is to protect the account.

    You need to look into import legit product, maybe the far east is the best place to start. Alibaba, look for wholesale home & leisure products etc. all good sellers there.

    I know a small company that makes mid 6 figures per month on eBay by selling cheap shoes made in China. Just an idea.

    Exactly, doesn't even need to be anything huge, just about finding an unbranded product that has the in style and fashionable look about it.

    I understand. However, I would love to maintain a 100% rating for various obvious reasons. I feel like "cheap unbranded shoes from China" might not be the best approach. Maybe I shall create my own eBay account and grow myself?

    Cheap doesn't have to mean poor quality.

    Everything is cheap over in China anyway.

    Above posters just mean, find replicas of hot selling products (IE. Converse, boat shoes, hoodies, t-shirts, etc.) - But with NO brand or generic/no risk brands.

    That is the way to go if you want to ruin you're account. Last i know ebay doesn't even allow digital products, it needs to be a physical object.
