    I used to dropship, but have since stopped doing it because it was time consuming. My account has 6K+ feedback (99.3%), 673k item listing limit, $7.45m selling limit. The account is about a year old, but in very good standing with eBay. Any suggestions as to what I can do to monetize it besides dropshipping?

    Because you were doing some shady stuff dude, like asking basic paypal questions while claiming to have made a million dollars and recruiting eBay sellers left and right.

    I'm not interested in dropshipping (amazon arbitrage). Like I said, any advice would be appreciated. It's a shame abandoning an account of this size and standing just like that.

    You shouldn't ask for advice, just gonna end up ruining your account with scammers that claim they have an amazing method to be honest

    I'm just curious as to how you have 673K and 7.4M limit on an account that is only about 1 year old. Also if dropshipping is not the least time consuming way to utilize such an account as opposed to ordering, warehousing and shipping physical products yourself then what else could you expect.
    Your only other alternative to utilize the account without too much time consumption on your part that I can see would be to outsource or hire someone to manage the account for you. It would be risky and you would need someone you could trust but an account of that size with the right products, I think could easily profit hundreds of dollars a day.
    How else can you monetize an ebay account? You either sell shit you have on hand and ship it yourself or you sell shit that you order from a third party and have them ship it to your customers. Its not a set and forget business model and if your not willing to do the hands on stuff to reap the rewards then your alternative is to hire someone or either let the account go dormant or sell it.
    Just the way I see it and good luck with your account.

    My limit was around 67k before I stopped selling and then all of a sudden eBay gives me a 10x limit increase after about 3 weeks of no activity. I had an older account before with ~1k limit. Opened this one, got a 1k limit, and then kept calling every 28-30 days to double my limits.
    As for the dropshipping, I was doing Amazon arbitrage with an automated service, but the fees kept climbing and the profit margins got slimmer and slimmer as more people got into the field. The group that I was a part of had users who had dozens of these types of accounts and did a lot of shady shit, so they were growing quicker than the ones who wanted to do everything legit. The profits were still there and they were well into the 4 figures monthly, but every month it keeps shrinking even as I keep expanding. Also, eBay is cracking down on the Amazon arbitrage by not honoring their sellers with seller protection for items that were "lost" and sent via Amazon tracking numbers (like amzl_us) instead of Fedex, USPS, etc. Just one of the things that turned me off from it. There are more red flags that keep popping up over the weeks and months as I talk to ebay customer reps over the phone and email. Just want to stay ahead of the curve.

    I guess the type of response I was looking for was a potential JV with someone who either has products or has connections to online dropshippers (actual dropshippers, not amazon arbitrage) and would want to offer some info in return for a cut.

    Some people have messaged me to ask if I'm willing to sell the account. I would be open to that if the price is right. Please PM me with an offer if you're interested.

    Please do not, i repeat DO NOT SELL YOUR ORIGINAL EBAY AND PAYPAL ACCOUNTS. I read a thread here today of a lady who sold hers and has been scammed as a result. I will post the link as soon as i get it

    Selling accounts linked to your name isn't a fantastic idea, if the account is stealth go ahead.

    Ah, the person sold the PayPal account along with the eBay account. I don't [didn't] intend to sell the Paypal account, just the eBay account. And it was all going to be official - a business transfer rather than just passing off the account info under the table. According to the eBay guidelines, I can get permission from them to transfer the business account to someone else. But looking back on it now, the whole thing sounds like a bigger hassle than it's worth, so I'll just hold on to the account. Maybe I'll decide to use it in the future. Thanks for the link.
