    Like digital copies/versions of things i dont have to buy in order to sell. i need to make a profit, but i dont have any money to invest in wholesale.

    This is a really interesting idea and I would also love to hear peoples experiences and thoughts on this matter.

    With a little creatively I could set someone up with a nice outlay for another project

    That sounds like a good idea. Have you look into your storefront and made it more appealing? Perhaps you could advertise in some gaming forums and what not. If the customers are not coming to you then you need to go to them.

    Also, how long does it take to make a new character? What games are you using?

    Perhaps switching a game will get you customers quicker?

    Pretty sure selling didgital items without physically sending anything (CD Book etc) is against Ebays TOS, and will get you banned mega quick.

    Not a sngile person in here has over 25 posts!!! Haha!!!

    As for advice, I would suggest drop shipping items from alibaba.com or dealextreme.com.

    Dropshipping is always a risk unless you have a true dropshipper.
    Otherwise I suggest you guys stick with virtual content, and other such products. Ebooks or other ideas may work well.

    Just put on your auction that you charge a $15 handling fee if they want an actual CD. Most people wont ask for the CD.

    What if they actually pay the $15? lol

    I wonder if there are any quality US/Canada drop-shippers here selling trending items as Im in a similar situation with an account.

    Dropshipping = where you arrange with a third party supplier to ship their sold goods to your customer (i.e. you make the sale on ebay, then you provide shipping details to the third party dropshipping supplier who will ship the sold item to the buyer usually)
    Selling Replicas = selling fake dre beats, era hats, bathing ape clothing, etc (against Ebay TOS as well and easily caught on new accounts but some do it successfully, especially when combined with dropshipping)

    If they actually pay the fifteen then you ship them digital goods on a cd/dvd.

    A couple of years ago i looked up ebay and amazon canada for electronics and compared them with ebay and amazon usa, there was often a difference from up to 30%. Especially when the canadian buyer had several items i just put in the USA the offer online and only bought the canadian one when the usa offer was sold, not sure if the price difference is still that high and it didnt make me rich but it added up nicely without initial capital...
