    If you read Ebay's terms and conditions they no longer allow ebooks to be sold on the site. If you try and sell one the auction will be taken down. I've had some success on Ebay with dropshipping and that is a higher profit margin than e-products too.

    Anything without a tracking number opens you up for Paypal chargebacks.

    It's OK to sell Digital Information Products on eBay, that includes eBooks, Software, Videos
    and stuff - just as long as it is delivered thru the mail to the buyer on a cdr or dvd.

    You are not permitted to deliver your Digital Information Products via emai, although it seems
    there are those who continue to do this - No, No.

    What I fail to understand is why folks contiue to try to disregard the eBay rules and regulations
    and when they get caught and banned by eBay . . . they come crying to various online forums
    such as BHW about how hard done eBay has treated them.

    As stated above you can sell ebooks, reports and other digital media in any category that fits so long as you are not digitally delivering the goods, you must send through the mail now.

    It is frustating that people are still doing sell ebooks for 99 cents and emailing product even though its wrong. When they first changed this I didnt read the update and was selling over 100 ebooks a day at 99 cents and they said I was using these auctions to manipulate my feedback and suspended my account for 30 days and reversed all the feedback I gained from them.

    If you want to digitally deliver your goods on ebay you still can in the everything else, classified section but if you want to really do it right you will list them on ebay and on amazon in the kindle market.
