    Does anybody tried buying 15 watchers from that guy on fivver?

    Can this get your account suspended/banned?

    Any reviews?

    Nope you won't get banned, worst thing that can happen is the accounts watching the listing will get banned. Also they are not "real" watchers (i know the person who you're buying from) they are stealth accounts.

    Lol what's point? Ebay watchers = useless

    The quality of fiverr gigs is getting worse and worse. I actually found a guy who is willing to show you how to give a buyer a refund on ebay for 5$. You know, in case you're too lazy to look for "issue a refund" button yourself.

    Ebay watchers rank your item (i think). If you have the most watchers then other sellers who are selling the same product then you'll item will be shown first. Now this is not based on fact but when i got 10 watchers on my youtube listing it bummed from the bottom of page 1 to the top.

    Hmm.. I did not know that having users "watch" an item could boost your Ebay listing... pretty neat I guess. Has anyone had experiences like this?

    I asked a few friends to watch some of my items. 2-3 watchers were doing some amazing pushing in the list! But the next 8....
    So it's kind of inconclusive. But i bet they care about watchers. If you use their marketing tools you will always see what's the avarange number of watchers for those top 5 seller of a product.

    Idk man I think its a waste of money. I can see the need to bump your item in ranking but think of it from a buyers perspective when you look for something on eBay do you really go with the item that's listed first? I know I search for the best price (along with seller feedback, seller location so I can get it faster, etc).

    If you have to pay for ppl to watch your item you may need to pick a new item. I just put up an item today and within an hour had someone inquiring to purchase. While we were discussing back and forth someone else had purchased it. I was then able to convince the first inquiry to just send me a paypal invoice and sold two of the items with one listing after it only being up for a couple hours. It had like 15 views and like 1 watcher.

    That shocked me because this is my first time really doing this sort of thing (dropshiping) but, yea just have a great item and a competitive price and your item will sell itself, save your money.

    This is pointless. Good keyword title, low starting or buy it now price and low shipping cost is what helps rank your listing. These are all ways people will sort the eBay search results. Everybody ends up on page one as your auctions trickles down to the ending time. People can't see how many watchers you have.
