    I have an ebay seller account registered in 2004. It has 200 positive feedbacks @ 100% and have had power seller status a few months ago. Only reason I do not have it any more is because of inactivity. I basically stopped selling. Have sold items up to $1k and the limits are 100/5000. Right now I'm not sure what to do with this account. I see a lot of people saying that you can make thousands with good seller accounts but I just am not entirely sure how. I've tried dealing with 2 persons, one who sent me goods to sell and one who drop ships for me. The first person has some personal problems and stopped sending me goods while I had them listed. The second person only has 1 or 2 goods for me to sell per week.

    So my questions are, should I sell this account? If I were to sell it how much would it be worth?

    Or what can I do to make thousands of dollars with this account each month? I want to be able to make a reasonable amount of money so that I can pay my bills and take care of living expenses each month so a few thousand would be ideal for me or even a thousand for the least.

    If anyone has any good ideas please feel free to share them with me. I'd appreciate any advice given.

    Thank you

    It would be better to find good products to sell, if you have time to manage an eBay account

    I don't think eBay allows you to sell your account to someone else.

    I don't think they allow feedback exchange either but people still do it. Either way I was hoping to get more informed comments with actual information relating to my thread.

    A simple rule to follow: buy cheap, sell for profit.

    I know several people who make much more than just 1k per month just by reselling WW1 , WW2 stuff.

    Try visiting local auctions, local markets, car-boot sales. Focus on one product line/niche at first and you will hit that 1k/month easily.

    How would you transfer your ebay account if someone paid you $100 for it?

    2004 accounts with little activity are treated like new today. Is this your real information? If so it would not be wise to want to sell it as others would need your info to use it.
    Anyone can buy and sell an account and ebay wont know it, but for someone to want to sell an account with his-her real information on it would not be a smart decision.

    Thank you for this info. By ww1 and ww2 do you mean world war 1 and 2?


    $100?? Not sure what you mean by that but if you're suggesting that if I were to sell it for that price then it certainly would not be worth my time.


    Ok, thank you for this info.


    I think you've misunderstood things a little. This would most certainly be insane.

    Don't sell it and start selling on it. Good ebay accounts are hard to come by and you are gonna be crying when you try to buy one that is worthless

    I hear you on this. Currently trying to make some dropshipping and/or wholesale hookups with other members. Hopefully things work out ok and I can get some partnerships going.

    You're definitely better off trying to sell products on it. About a year ago I would have paid about $300 for it but that just me.

    I would be interested and would be willing to pay around 1000 if you are still interested in selling

    Like the other people said, just use it. Find something to sell, go to auctions. That's what I currently do for a living, I buy stuff at auction, pop it on eBay. You'll make more than you would selling the account.

    100/5000 accounts can be bought under $200, being 2004 is nice but it's certainly not a deal breaker. Value comes from high limit accounts, if you got like 1000/50,000 account then you could ask serious money for it.

    Selling your ebay account can be dangerous if your Real info , esp your SS# is attached.
    I use to do credit repair and I'm 99% sure you could do a contract for sale and record it with yoru local county. Of course EBay TOS will not allow this and you wouldn't want Ebay to find out.


    But if the person purhcased your ebay account and screwed it up and you received a negative mark on your credit then you would need to contest the negative account on each credit beura ( I believe ebay only does Exquifax) to have it removed. At this point weather or not ebay will allow you to sell an account would have no legal wieght. The fair credit reporting act would require the ebay debit to be removed. With this being said you would probably need to have the name, address and SS# of the person who purchased the account, please speak to a lawyer on credit repair to find this out. VERY important to record this contract at the county... fees are normally like $40 to $100, AT THE TIME OF THE SALE. Do not wait to record the contract, don't be cheap pay the $40 and cover your ass.


    IF YOUR SS# was not attached to this then all this is not a biggie.


    I have been dropshipping for close to 3 years. You can search may success and failures on the posts here on BHW.
    I am completely white hat now and so happy to be so. Black hat on ebay always ends with 180 days of waiting for the money, if you are lucky.


    I will send you a PM.
    My skype is Defonn


    I am currenlty dropshipping about $25k a month on my main stealth account with an average of 22% net profit margin. I have trained and team up with others who do more since we have worked as a team. My last student is better than I have ever been, he is clearing $100K a month in sales with a 19 to 20% profit margin. Basically he hired two girls to process orders and do customer service for him and this has given him the edge to kick my ass. Good for him, I'm slightly jealous. ;-)

    I just bought a one year old account with feedback for 200.00 and it has no holds, I can sell 100 items and 5000.00 a month on it. Accounts can be purchase cheap. Just buy from someone who is known to sell good accounts.

    An account is only worth as much as someone is willing to pay you for one.

    It's good that the account is 10 years old.

    I personally would not sell that account and I would use it myself because you are going to make way more money selling on it than selling that account.
