    You win some, you lose some. At least you might gain some feedback.

    Okay so today I focused on upping my feedback by purchasing some items from china that were a few pennies each. After I get my feedback to 25 to get rid of my limitations I'm going to try to sell my real stuff

    Here is a quick update as I might not have a lot of time to post tomorrow. Trying to bid for 1 cent auctions is a little tough because of last second bids, and everyone trying to bid for your item. So far I have won one auction. I was contemplating buying $1 items from a wholesale in China, but after shipping and fees, I will be in the red. However, if i buy from other buyers on ebay I can make small profits of a few cents. Anyway, waiting for my feedback to get to 25 will give me time to research more items to sell.

    The first sale is the most exciting. Hope you sell some more!

    You'd be better off going to your local Goodwill with your phone and finding 20-30 items you can sell for a small profit and get feedback from. You'll spend more upfront, but you can make money while gaining your feedback.

    Just my two cents.

    This is true, I am wondering if they sell electronics at the goodwill because I am not so good at appraising the cost of clothes. Nonetheless, I have free time next weekend to try this. Thx for the info.

    Lol hey 1 more feedback never hurt anybody. Thx for the encouragement. I am going to start working on my selling template for my page. Do you have any tips?

    You didn't even read. If he would change that number in a larger number he would make even more loss.
