    hi!

    I have items on ebay that are shipped via first class mail, so not trackable. This means that I can not ever get top rated seller status in the future. I have excellent fb but because of the new rules that will change i need to provide feedback on 90% of my orders.

    Does anybody know of a tracking number generator or if I can just make up a # and ebay will take it as tracking number uploaded? I had a seller that wrote something like TRACKING747 in the tracking number slot for my order before. Maybe they did that to keep up with their tracking number uploaded records?

    Any ideas?

    I am also wondering the same thing.
    Since rules have changed, how do we maintain the top-rated sellers badge? Because tracking numbers have to be updated within 24-hours. It's kind of tough. I think inserting wrong or random tracking numbers could also cause problems, maybe and maybe not.

    Digital Item. Maybe, but I think eBay will not allow this to happen. Maybe someone experienced with this can help us out?

    I know this will definitely cause problems. I tried ebay to ebay dropshipping . I would post an item then buy from another seller for cheaper. When the seller upload tracking info i tried to upload it for buyer. Ebay bot replied this was incorrect tracking number and after so many errors I risked account getting banned.

    I can list 200 items 7200 $ month limit but cannot find quality dropshipper to make profit. I would be fine with 1500$ profit but all of the items i find on amazon are higher than ebayy.

    If the end justify means. You are making good profit then i would forget about topseller on that account and make profit and invest in another account
