Ok I see many people on ebay selling auctions for .01 and up. This is great since most buyers buy these just to add a feedback count to thier account. As a dropshipper, your defect rate can kill an account. If you get a few out of stocks and cancel an order or they show up late your account can get a 5%+ defect rate fast. BUT in theory, if you sell 5 to 10 of these PENNY auctions daily, then the few refunds and out of stock items you have will not matter. I see other sellers doing this penny auction trick so there is eviedence it will work. BUT I don't trust ebay at all... it would make me feel better hearing from someone who has done this. All my accounts are doing it now, but with ebay's shady ass system they hide which transactions and how many transactions will impact my defect rate till the following month. Those bastards also do this later, once your defect rate is over 5% they give you warnings the following month but it is too late to make adjustments, you can't go back in time and change the results of the previous months. Anyway, since this unfair defect rate came into affect in August 2014, this system has been a nightmare. IF these penny auctions can help pad the numbers with transactions, then it means an honest dropshiper can still be profitable with just a little more work.
