    I have been selling goods online for years in many channels. Now all the selling channels are cut off. Perhaps i can get some helpful ideas here?

    1, my listings on google base have been removed because they after 3 years decided that i dropship (violating their TOS) for BOTH of my sites! so my google base account cannot be used anymore. prostore has a built-in base account but it does not come with buyer rating which is essential in base rank.
    2, i have been selling on fleabay. but my detailed feedback is under perform in red color for more than 30 days now. the number is getting worse. i have less than 30 days to get it back in black. otherwise they will increase my listing fees and limit my number of listings. the problem is since my rating is bad, they put all my ads at the very very bottom of any search. No matter how low i sell, nobody is going to see me. So i cannot sell. If i cannot sell, i cannot get the ratings up because the ratings is calculated using number of bad divided by total number of sales. i have been screwed by those sob buyers even though i have been bending backward e.g., "i dont need the item anymore.. i want full refund.. i got my money back.. you get a negative feedback.. the fleabay gives us buyers the power!" what will solve my rating problem is about 10 orders a day and i get 100% ratings on all of them for the next 30 days. i can sell items for a loss just to get the ratings up. problem is with fleabay buyers there is no guarantee AND selling low does not guarantee sales with the lowest search rank.
    3, thefind and shopwiki do not give me enough sales. although affiliate program on shopwiki might help but i am not sure how much.
    4, i have been lurking on BHW for 2-3 years. i have tried many things without success. i have 10 2-year old autoblogs not making money. most of them dont rank within 200. i have been trying CPA with no luck.
    5, I just created 2 sites that rank 18/25 in 10 days but i have not been able to move them up in 2 weeks! ranking on 2nd page is no difference from ranking 100. i do not have much to invest and i am not sure any further investment is going to help.
    6, the best site i have gets 100 visitors a day, but obviously its not the right place for the CPA offers as i have gotten no clicks at all in 1 month even with a 2000-hit day once.

    any good ideas?
    desperately

    The sites that you were making money on (google and fleabay)... just open a new account and log in via a proxy.

    a new fleabay account charges listing fee at 0.45, i am paying 0.03 per listing now. in 30 days if my rating does not turn black, i will be paying 0.20 per listing.

    have you tried setting up new accounts to buy from yourself and leave glowing feedback?

    Actually, I dont even need glowing feedback. All i need is orders with no feedback. The number of sales will dilute the negative ratings.

    As far as i know know eBay buyer account needs to be associated with a credit card? How many buyer accounts can i set up? low return and high risk..

    Get a neteller account with virtual CC. You can generate random tmp credit card numbers. I've verified quite a few paypal accounts with em. Just make sure the initials of the name match. You can modify street address on the fly.
