    Is it fine if you just verfied you paypal account and link it to ebay? Does that allow you to safely sell electronics [below $100]?

    People are saying selling electronics is high risk. What's so high risk about electronics? Ebay will suspend you if you sell electronics?

    Planning to do this on a new account, but it's fine if my account is verified?

    Depends on what you sell. Selling branded headphones and ipods = high risk, Selling generic antique radio parts = low risk.

    eBay will take down listings and ask for documentation where your inventory came from, eBay will also shut down many new accounts for vero violation no question asked, for selling certain things. Electronics attract tons of scammers, etc.


    Being verified makes no difference. What matters is selling history.

    Never! You should always try to verify that you are receiving them from another source.

    Depending on the quality and type of electronic, you could pocket a good amount of cash, First decide what kind of electronic you want to sell. you should search up the product you are selling and check what others are selling theirs for. This will give you a general idea of what your item is going for.
    1)shipping center 2) seller protection 3) photos
    These are very important when selling electronics, reading over this will help you make the process smoother!
