    Hey I was wondering about the rules of selling computer processing such as windows xp, vista etc. On ebay? Is this a good Idea, buying from china at wholesale and selling on ebay. Is it illegal?

    Thanks for your help!~

    Do you mean software, or actual processing time on computer(s).

    Selling Chinese software on Ebay is a quick way to get the selling account suspended if you dont know what you are doing.

    No it's not illegal unless you are selling cracked versions. As long as the software can be registered with it's own code that comes with the purchase then I don;t see any reason not to sell them. It seems loads of people are selling them on ebay.

    your account will get suspended if it comes to their attention that you are selling bootleg software. its really not something i would play around with.

    There's been a guy selling bootleg software on gumtree for over a year now,
    I had limited success on there but he had London wrapped up.
    When your selling cheap stuff on classifieds people know what they're
    buying they'r not that nieve so you won't get many complaints and
    if you post with different ip's and email addresses you've taken your
    money and ran.

    yeah, how was he taking payment though? The one hurdle you have on classifieds is alot want to come and pick it up cash. If you mention payment online alot freak.
