    A while ago one of my IM friends set up a little venture selling womens used underwear, unfortunately she's recently been fined BIG TIME by Paypal as this is strictly against there TOS. So watch out if you plan to do a similar thing. One thing I wondered if anyone on here knows is, do you think it would be possible to use a referrer script and integrate it with the code for the paypal button to essentially hide the source of where the payments are coming from? Anyone know if this would work? Seems too simple to be true and I'm sure the big boys at paypal would have a way to suss this out quite quickly but if not, who knows the potential. Thanks.

    Used underwear? With or without skid marks and bodily fluids stains. What a deal!

    Definitely against their TOS.

    I think the skid marks might have set off paypal's TOS department could have been he look of it or the smell of it don't know :D

    You must be mistaken, PayPal doesn't charge anything for verification, they make micro deposits.

    Also believe it or not guys there is a huge market for well-worn undergarments, panty hoes, etc. You'd be surprised how much pervs will shell out for that crap.

    I dont get whats against the TOS? What does paypal care about what your selling? against eBays TOS I get, but if she has a website selling used undies, what does Paypal care?

    dra$tic is damn right...
    ...there is a huge market for that - as weird as it seems. and a lot of cash is being made. but pretty saturated too.

    ...but to pick AGman`s question. how can this be against pay-pal`s TOS? the do send and receive money. they don`t send and receive the underware. can you please explain that a little further OP?

    ...especially becaues you are than talking about problems with the source of the payments.

    There definitely seems to be a market here, but I would guess the supply is much greater than the demand.

    Certain products carry much higher rates of chargebacks and fraudulent use of credit cards.

    When a mans wife looks at his credit card statement and sees $60 for 'Lucys Used Underwear' the first thing he does is scream out "someone has stolen my credit card! I will call the bank and get that reversed immediately!"

    Definately, that's put me off getting into this game, although I've heard alert pay are pretty cool about this but I'm not sure how many buyers this would put off. It's definatly a market I've given some thought too, there's a very large number of searches I did a little research on Google keywords, really not a great deal of competition compared to some niches! Not for the faint hearted though. I don't know how much she made, but I do know it paid her rent and bills which is approx £400-500 per month, not bad given she works a couple of serious projects on top, nice little earner to get a bit of beer money.

    You could diversify that. Offer different smells and flavours.

    Hire like 10 women. Some fat, some skinny, some athletic, others geeky.
    Blonde, brunette, etc.

    To diversify it further you can offer like 10 different types of panties.
    To make it really diversified you offer them a choice of activities that those women will perform while wearing panties.

    Jog, cook, walk, dance, sleep...

    And as an extra payment you can add:
    - had sex same day
    - had pms same day

    That's hundreds of options right there! Chances are they'll buy multiple!

    Hell, I should do this myself. Sounds like a great idea :D

    I remember reading a story about this in the UK, and what the seller was doing (i think it was a guy advertising as a woman selling used panties) was dipping the panties into a bucket full of mild fish and another bucket of manure to get the smell :D:D

    True story, he got fined loads of cash.
