    OK... So I had this all figured out. I'd contact sellers of certain products and offer them guides on how they could sell their products for even more. But today, I try to access the "ask buyer a question" tab... And I'm no longer able to communicate with buyers. Ebay sent me no notice that nothing is wrong, and my account is still 100% functional in everything else but that (I buyed, it worked)... What's the bid idea? >.<

    I'm thinking buyers reported you. Most buyers don't like other people trying to sell them stuff or solicit anything out of them. I had a few people try to do it to me when I used to sell. I had a friend contact a seller and tell them their prices were outrageous and not only was she blocked, but she almost got banned for harassment.

    Hrm... So? Do I consider myself lucky and look for clearer waters to sail in? Or do I set up a TON of Ebay accounts and spam the *hit outta those buyers? What's your 2 cents on this Marusia? =D

    I would personally set up different accounts, yes.

    I've solicited sellers before. I try to be a little crafty about it.

    "Hi! I see that you have a lot of ____________. Are you interested in selling wholesale?"

    1/5 reply something like, "No, I don't have anything to wholesale, I have a hard enough time finding it myself!"

    My reply-Oh no, that's such a shame! I used to be a silver rated powerseller selling the same thing, and I still have several sources. I Just got tired of selling retail. Ebay customers are the worst!


    By that time, I had them hook, line, and sinker. Now that I think about it, I need to go get some more contacts to sell my stuff to. :p

    Not really. You first want to come off as a newb trying to find something to sell...but then again, I'd do something different since you have a different product.

    "Hi! I'm happy to see that you have _____________ for so cheap! Is it authentic?"

    Seller-"yes, we only sell authentic"

    you-"Oh ok. I've also sold ______________ and was able to get $__.__ for it. I'd love to show you how if you're interested!"

    Something like that. Trust me, anyone on ebay is always trying to make a buck. You just have to be smart about your initial approach.

    Hrm... For education's sake, should anyone stumble upon this thread in the future, here's a bit more detail.

    1. I look for "Broken X" (You get to pick what X'll be)
    2. I look for "Broken X Repair Guide Affiliate Products"
    3. I tell buyers "It's a shame you're selling X for so little man... You could fix it in under an hour and sell it for at least TRIPLE that. Check out this guide:---"

    But apparently, that got me banned... So I guess we should play around with the initial contact message and try and come off not as "salesy"? =D

    "I know a way you could fix it and sell it for at least triple that in less than an hour. If you can give me your email, I'd love to help."

    email-"Hi, Here's the information I was telling you about. I used to sell the same thing, but I decided to help people instead. Click this link to my site to find out more."
