    EVERYTHING must be new. It may work for a few weeks or months, but any potential link can bring a ban at any time. You don't want to get banned six months from now when you have revenue coming in because you were too lazy to do everything new today.

    My account got suspended. I have linked my paypal account in it. Can I link the same paypal account to another ebay account that I create?

    How are you setting up your VPN's/virgin proxies: Are you using a service or is that something you're manually creating?

    I use dedicated virgin VPN for established accounts and use phone tethering for newer accounts.

    Some countries can't use Paypal to receive money. Is Ebay lost for them in this case? Does Ebay allow to use other payment methods?

    You can get a paypal linked to a bank account in another country or link merchant gateways but it does make it much more difficult.

    Sir, do you know much about the search engine changes?

    Sales been down the gutter for 1 to 2 years now despite having way more inventory now and still having most of my old restockable inventory that was selling well for years.
    So has my product views, despite eBay supposedly growing.
    Competition appears to be no more then it used to be.

    Could you provide accurate insight as towards how to beat the new Cassini changes?

    Most the online guides are bullocks and many of them don't even really make sense.

    Or am I likely just getting robbed of tons of sales due to people spending tons of % on promoted listings?
    I do use promoted but can't really compete on the advertising costs for most products.

    They tweak it all the time. There is no proven method go game the searches for all items. My experience is that something that works in one niche is completely useless on others.

    My experience is that promoted listings make very little difference either way.

    Generally if your ebay fees are the ONLY problems with the account once you pay it your account will be reinstated. However, if there are other issues with the account what will probably happen is that they will still keep your account banned. Remember, it's perfectly legal for eBay/Paypal reps to lie to you telling you that your account may be reinstated once you pay even if they know they wont.

    This is they real question whenever you are starting out, because most niches are pretty much saturated with sellers already. There are many strategies to come up with what to sell. You must fit your method to take advantage of what resources available where you are at. For example, I am within US and I have access to direct manufacturing within US. So I charge higher prices than someone drop shipping from China since I can do my own quality check and can ship same day. You must decide what advantages you have over other sellers. If you have none, the answer may be that anything other than arbitrage selling is not for you.

    Hello, few days ago I made new ebay account. Also made new Paypal account. On ebay/com it shows that i can list 50 free listings, but I was able to list only one listings and I added quantity 10. Now everything is sold out, want to again sell it but when i press "List item" it says request higher limits and call ebay. I called them and entered that one time pass and it said that everything is okay and can't lift limits. But I still see that I have 49 free listings but can't add anything, why is that so? What to do? Also got some feedbacks from buyers, have 4 feedbacks

    You are confusing free listings versus selling limits. Your selling limit is 10 items. eBay is letting you list 50 items per month without a listing fee. No listing fee promotion does not affect your selling limit.

    You either call in or list to the limit every month and they will start lifting it automatically
