    I have a varified paypal with no limits or holdings but my old ebay doesnt exist so i started a new one, $250 is easy to hit but 90 days waiting sucks for holding my cash, what would you guys do? Think i should just buy some cheap bulk, $1-2 items, and sell until i get passed it? Or would anyone recommend any other sites to use for my bigger items. I got screwed on a drop shipping deal because of ebay since I dont always have hundreds of dollars laying around to front on a item. Just looking for some advice from some pros! Im not new to IM but im 100% new on what products to sell, better to buy wholesale or try drop shipping, etc etc, I used to sell live insects and made good money so dry goods is pretty new to me. I don't even really know what products to try and buy and sell!

    Personally I'd start with small items till your Ebay account is trusted and has a bigger selling limit.
    If you have some cash laying around you can start with 30-50 dollar items. If you have very little cash
    you can always start with items worth like 5 dollars. You won't make much money but it will get you past
    the 90 days selling limit and the holding of your money.

    EBay used to be cool back in the day. Now they dont want you to sell. Getting past the ebay first 100 sales is tough. They will fight and fight you. They will limit your sales, stop you from posting, hold your money for months ect. Their main goal is to break you. They want to see if you can get thru it. If you cant, well thats what they want. They do not want strong sellers on their site. Be prepared, you will have to fax them all your photo ID, bank statemnts, credit card statements and all invoices from your vendors. Trust me it happened to me. If you think you will make money selling on ebay, go for it. Start small and just grind away.
