    I have just seen a seller on eBay offering PS Network cards and Xbox Live gold cards.

    As they just send the code by email there is no physical shipping required.

    I also noticed he is making a killing, thousands of them have been sold.

    I wonder if it would be a good idea to start selling them .... I already found a dropshipper from Hong Kong, however, I do not have any experience with these cards/codes.

    Is there anything to take care of when ordering/dropshipping?

    I thought about selling these but margins arent very good if the codes are legit. Also, be very careful when sending by email. There are slot of buyers who will try to scam you. They will open a chargeback after recieving the code, as you cannot prove that you sent it, they always win. Believe me i know, i used to sell iTunes codes by email.

    I have found a seller offering the $50 card at $27 .... he says it is legit. He sells on DHGate, they work with an escrow service. So if the card does not work I simply do not release the money.

    Yes, you are right. However I am wondering how this seller on eBay is doing that. He has 99.8% feedback, more than 40.000! And he has strange refund policy. He offers 100% money back guarantee if code does not work, but on the other side he writes you cannot get refund for used codes. Wtf??? If I do not use the code so how will I know if it works??

    About the other problem, if paypal wants proof that I sent them the email, so I just could make a screenshot.

    Yes but this is not good enough for paypal. They only protect you if you send by a registered physical mail service. Ebay dont allow digital downloads anymore. Although people still offer it. I guess you just have to trust your customer. If its legit and it works, you will make money. These are very popular! If you could get microsoft points aswell that would be excellent. Good luck

    he probably means if it works, you can't say it doesn't and try to get a refund. This just sounds like a possible paypal nightmare.

    Never buy any codes from DHgate , Alibaba etc.

    They never come in card form. The points are loaded onto hacked accounts , They use the card details on the accounts to buy the points then sell them on.

    So basically its fraud. You can get them legitly by visiting this forum:

    ^^ I bought a few off there before for personal use and it was good. May cost more but its worth it ^^.

    Good luck !

    I took a look there, however, up to now I did not find anything decent. Most of them ask for moq and also at these prices you cannot sell on eBay because you simply cannot compete with others. E.g. xbox live 12 months sold there for €29,50. On eBay it is sold for €34. So what to do with €4,50? After eBay and pp fees there remains NOTHING.

    yes you can sell digital code just in description say you will send code with standard paper mail, but when buyer win auction ask him to send by email. about the keycard yes some key seller offer 24hours warranty like it is stolen account.

    These are sold by the hundreds and are stolen.

    Mostly stolen from amazon accounts in 2007-2009. Amazon used to do digital downloads of MS points and you could just log into hacked accounts and purchase about 5 or 6 cards.

    Hard to get them anymore.

    You can send digitally but you have to cover your basis. What you do is ask for a number to contact them and then look it up on white pages to see if it matches billing address.

    Ask if they want the code or the card. If they ask for the card then you send it on an index card in the mail.

    If they file a complaint with paypal that they did not get the code, so I just could send the code to paypal in order to proof I have the code? they can again send it to the buyer and there is no problem?!

    Sounds ultra sketchy to me, I would stay away with a 50 foot pole. Probably people carding for gift cards, reselling them and cashing out before any complaints.

    you could always put the code on a CD and send it to them in one of those hard CD Mailers and if they try some sneaky shit just give them the tracking number you have for the CD
