    It seems that ebay doesn't want business from ebook sellers. It was suggested I try Ebid.com and I posted an ebook for sale on their site. Today I received a message from them that they took my ad down and that they don't allow ebook sales on their site.

    Does anyone know where we can sell ebooks, some of us count on these sales for our income.

    Thanks in advance,
    Sparks17

    Every few months there are changes to all the rules, PPC, Adsense, CPA networks, Algos etc

    dont count on any niche, spread your revenue generation as if you rely to heavily in one area a change will catch you blindsided.

    If you can sell ebooks/or are just doing low bids with populated links, always have a plan B running in the background.

    I dont mean to sound general but you have to be planning ahead constantly and not overly reliant on any one factor/product line

    Do a little work and make your own ebook and sell it via clickbank or the DP forums--they love cheap ebooks there. =P

    Actually, they are only stopping AUCTIONs of digitally downloadable products; something to do with cleaning up and preserving the integrity of the feedback score system

    Anyhow, they will allow ebook sales in the CLASSIFIED Ads section of Ebay. I'm on a few of those EBay Gurus' lists and they said it won't hurt using ebay for leads... just keeps one from amassing thousands of feedback scores from such e-products!

    This link may be of some help to anyone look for more sites to sell their ebooks on. It contains a lot of helpful links for e-book authors.

    they dont allow it due the fact that its easy to sell copyrighted material, which is a big no-no
