    I've been using eBay literally since the first month Pierre started it back in 1995. I'll dabble in it a while, then back off. Most recently I've been selling overstock video games. While I enjoy it, it really pays less than McDonald's wages. However, out of my last two-year run of sales, I now have two eBay accounts with 1,000+ feedback and top rated seller status. I just sold off the last of my inventory and don't plan on buying more, so I suppose my TRS status will eventually die.

    I've actually toyed with the idea of selling one of these accounts, but I'm afraid it would end up in the hands of scammers.

    So I'm looking for a less labor-intensive way of using these accounts to make money. How do I get hooked up with a US-based "real" business wanting to partner with an eBayer like me? Or am I just dreaming and will end up being scam-bait?

    Tehduke, if there's something that you can buy used and sell for a higher price, then you can sell it on Ebay and no, it obviously is not limited to digital items. You can even start buying up used high ticket items and selling them with an account like that. You might be sitting on a gold mine.

    I would be interested in purchasing one of the accounts from you. US based, "real" business. I have a decent feedback on eBay as well (almost 50) and have been there since 2007, but not very active up until recently.

    Yeah, I know. The same thought crossed my head when I posted. I just have the benefit of being nearly 50 years old and found eBay because I used to buy and sell on Usenet, where Pierre first started spamming about "AuctionWeb". The only reason I have TRS status is because I found techliquidators a couple years ago and bought $30k worth of games and electronics, eventually sold them for a total of $58k. While that sounds great, after eBay/PayPal fees, shipping and expenses I ended up with less than $10k profit. Like I said before, less than I would have made at McDonald's for the same time investment.

    Short of posting one of my user names (which I'm not going to do) I wouldn't know how to prove anything.

    I'm just learning that I've built something of value here and I'd hate to see it lost. However, I don't want to go back to investing money and spending 10-15 hours a week just to earn $6 per hour.

    If you have high limits and have some capitol I would recommend to start wholeselling. If not dropshipping might be a good idea also. I really want to do some business with you :) could you pm me or something
