    Hey Folks!

    I want to send messages "en masse" to ebay powersellers. I'd like to be sending about 200 messages to different users a day.

    My questions:

    1. I want to include a hyperlink in the message. Is this smart, or could it get flagged?

    2. Say I'm messaging 200 people a day, would it be smart spread these messages across a number of ebay accounts, or is just one OK?

    Thanks!

    MR

    I tried this but in super less volume. Like 50 sellers a day, and it went good. I had to cypher the links because they ont allow them. Just do it on a regular buying account, no need to risk a selling account. Possibly make a new buying account and just try it

    Can buyer accounts be set up easily without credit card or paypal information?

    I'll probably hire a couple of overseas freelancers to send out the messages. They will need logins

    Thanks.

    You need to be diligent to input to captcha. Because the eBay don't want to get spammed.

    So you want to spam people on ebay, lol....Seriously your plan has massive flaws and every account you use to send out messages will get banned.

    Well, it's not really a 'plan' as of yet. More some early research.

    What would you suggest as a good way to connect with powersellers?

    Yea - I like to think so. We pay powersellers up to $100 to do a little advertising for us.

    The powersellers advertise where, on ebay, or via their invoices sent to customers?

    On eBay.

    FWIW we are eBay certified developers and our application has passed rigorous ebay testing protocols. We just need to get it in front of lots of sellers.

    Yes, it's live.

    It allows buyers to obtain realtime quotes for shipping and transportation of bulky, difficult to move items from a range of providers.

    Hi. Hope you all are fine. I need sellers to sell products on ebay. They all are authentic and you can see the receipts. I need sellers because my account has a limit of 10 items of 500$ per month. But almost each of my product gets sold for 300$. So i need sellers. If you are interested then add me at skype-if interested- daniyal.awan1

    Can't you just scrape the emails off the ebay listing and send them the message? The next problem is getting the emails to their inbox.

    Thanks Zenno. Where would you get the email address from? I don't see email addresses on ebay listings.
