    I'm not sure if this violates eBay or affiliate TOS, but I came across someone on eBay with this classified ad:

    hxxp://***********/3o3ut7

    I know this offer has a street price of around $32.00 per sign up, so the money would be pretty good ;-)

    Now, after looking around eBay, I see others doing the same. I couldn't find anywhere in eBay TOS that said you couldn't do anything like this, so I'm guessing this shouldn't get your eBay accounts suspended? If not, this is a great way to get some extra leads.

    Anyways, thought I would share something here since I've already learned so much in the short time I've been here. Some may have known about this, but to those who don't, why not try to make a few extra $$ using this method :)

    EDIT: Found a couple more by the same seller:
    hxxp://***********/5jmqm2
    hxxp://***********/5t4len

    I don't really care about having my ebay account suspended, more worried about eBay reporting me to CJ just like craigslist is notorious for doing.

    It is pretty tempting though...

    Those are classified ads. It's no different if you were using Adwords to promote a product.

    Not really sure. I don't see where to start a classified ad. Maybe it's for Powersellers only?

    i have too much hate for ebay so i am going to let some lil stuff out so we can all screw ebay (LETS FUCK THEM)

    is up to you, all black hat involves a risk like you all know

    simple steps to follow

    purchase a vcc
    open a pay pal account with that vcc
    start listing some shitty stuff like ebooks or unexpensive stuff

    once u have ur account for 2 weeks ebay will move to check new sellers
    here is when you start post a ton of classified ads promoting cpas and clickbank products

    dont use direct link use tinyurl or something else, so when its time to pay for the ebay fees u stop redirecting the traffic and when ebay tries to reach you they are pointed no were

    use proxies and that shit to stay under the radar

    the rest is history, i was going to use this myself but damn i hate ebay now, lets screw them

    dont get to greedy or make it look to tricky, be smart and you will have a good business for some time, until ebay gets pissed about this and stops working, perhap was a mistake posting this idea perhaps not

    tantric master posted a killer technique but it became saturated in just a few days, for those who read about it let me tell you that 2 weeks later 95% of the search results on plasma tv were wholesale lists with fishy titles

    DAMN too much people tried this, now ebay has changed some rules so this system doesnt work no more

    lets see how long this will work

    peace to all :p

    by the way if you dont understand what the fuck are we doing here, we are avoiding ebay fees so u can spend some good money advertising the products and keep all the profit, if some of them dont work you wont need money to try them

    Classified ads are only available for certain categories, go to ebay faq and do a search for classified ads

    I can vouch for this system, it works.

    You can also sell physical items as well and make even bigger $$$$$

    I just thought of a snag.

    Surely they can trace back through affil co from your affil link to get your real name addr etc?

    Only way I see to do this is ebooks with fake email name address etc auto**responder.

    I'm thinking don't place the actual name or website of the aff program in the ebay listing.

    They are also a powerseller and I'm sure pays their bills on time with eBay. They have a lot of items listed and unless someone actually reports these few ads, they would go unnoticed by eBay. I would never use my link in an ad though. I doubt eBay would go as far as reporting to the affiliate company for a powerseller doing this, unless they were already warned by eBay.

    to sell on ebay and avoid the fees i am not sure, they can track down your pay pal, as for the aff link you can split this in many cpa networks and on many ebay accounts so you wont claim anyones atention
