    Ebay USA to get get some sales? Currently i rarely get any sales as i am from a third world country.

    Listing USA as my main address a good idea?

    My paypal is also USA based and is one of my relatives' account.

    ALso my limit is $500 and 10 items as of now, will that change?

    I do not think that it is a good idea to lie about where you are from. It is not fair to your customers at all. I have bought from places over seas, but your customers have a right to know where you are located at.

    its not about that, i'll write the item location correctly. Its just that i think people are having trouble believing a person form a third world country. I do not intend to scam or rip off anyone. Want to do long term business on ebay.

    Well.. it is hard to live in a third word and anyway I think it will be ok. You are not going to be the first one to do that and no even the last one. and as long as I know u need an and address in THE USA so u must have family there. so I guess it is Ok. just my opinion

    I've done that and it works great.

    I had a stealth in Canada, and while the market is still good over there, I still decided to switch to USA.

    You still need a USA address though, but I'm sure you are already set up for this. But yeah, moving to the US eBay servers might help you a lot depending on what you are selling.

    Or, there is an option when you list the item to show your item internationally across the eBay sites.
