    I am totally new to CPA and just want to make some quick bucks so I ran some CPA offers on ebay.


    I copied a method used by people doing freebiejeebies. I posted some listings with 'ipad' in the title. Then put in the description 'do not bid'. Then I wrote some stuff about how 'I got my ipad free by just signing up here' then my cpa link. Anyway I made some money (not a lot, but good for me) but ebay suspended my account. I got 2 more ebay accounts and changed up the method a bit but still got suspended.


    My questions are:


    1.Is there any way to get new ebay accounts daily without needing new phone numbers and CCs. Note I don't need to access funds from ebay at all.


    2.Is there any twists on this method not involving ebay anyone can think of. Please do share! :D

    a better way to do this is: put up an auction for an ipad. make a high reserve so it doesn't sell. go on another account and ask a question. say something like "why should i bid on this when i can get one here_________ for free?" then answer the question and make it visible in the auction. make sure you have a friend ask the question for you unless you know how to log in and out of different accounts and delete flash cookies and change ip and all that.

    Yeah the problem with that is no one opens auctions that have very high asking prices and very few people will look at the question. Also ebay will still suspend that account and ask for proof of ownership for the item. But thanks anyway your idea has got me thinking.

    he is not saying to set opening bid High, you can have opening bid be a penny, but set the reserve to something ridiculous like $1000. people will bid, but no one will win since no one is going to pay higher than retail for the item. They will just keep bidding and see "reserve not met"

    So now that you have them looking at the auction, they will see the Q&A..not sure you can put a link in the Answer...but you could just buy a domain and forward your ref link to the new domain and post that in the answer.

    Ah thank you that makes more sense now. I have not managed to get my head around reserve fees, how much does it cost approx. for a very high reserve price or do you only have to pay if it sells?


    Also any ideas for getting back on ebay as I am out of phone numbers and credit cards.

    Off the top of my head I don't know..but I'm sure you can google "ebay reserve fee schedule" and find something that will give you and idea..but I'm sure its based on how high you set the reserve and I'm sure you pay that fee whether or not the item sells.
    For phone numbers...look around, there are services that will give you "one time use" phone numbers that you can forward to your regular phone.
    As far as credit cards, there are people around here that sell one time use credit cards that you can use for verification and what not...you just pay them the amount you want on the card plus their fee.

    good luck

    I have looked up costs, they seem a little to prohibitive. I'll look into the phone number idea and cc card. I may just buy a cheap sim free mobile or something for the number though.

    Can't you also list as a classified? You're not directly selling there so I would think you could say whatever you wanted.
