    I'm considering selling digital items on ebay but what are the risks involved if any?
    Could some shed some light on this please?

    Even if you find profitable digital goods - you'll quit that business, because scammers will always "reverse" the PP transactions after you send them the keys/goods. They use stolen eB/PP accs, so generally you can't know if certain order/transaction is fraudulent or not, EVEN if their names, e-mails, zip, address, etc." are 100% matching. GL.

    I used to sell fifa ultimate team players/coins but was banned permanently from selling on eBay.

    They would take down my listings and stupidly enough I would re list them because I was making fantastic money off it then they perm banned me.

    I am 99% sure you can't sell 'virtual' stuff. You must sell physical things on ebay, but I don't know about Amazon, prob the same thing

    If you insist on selling digital items on eBay, one thing you can try is physically shipping something like either a thank you note, or writing down/typing the code/key on a piece of paper and make sure to get a tracking number for it. You'll still attract spammers and you'll still probably be suspended eventually, but I imagine it would work better than just trying to email people digital items, especially if you only imply that it's a digital item instead of outright saying it. But yes, selling digital items is a dead end now. Gone are the days where you could make money off of selling eBooks there.

    Starting from nowhere selling directly ANY kind of coins - in-game gold, coins, etc. for various online games = 100% red flag = ban.

    You must start something ELSE in the beginning and after 6 months to list your FIRST few (1-5) coins-listings, this is some kind of strategy. And then continue to list. Of course you must be till then Top-rated Plus / Premium Listing (don't list on .COM, tho).

    Big Chinese/HKish sellers are selling digital goods for since, some of them already 10 years. I bet they haven't started directly with those, tho. Keep in mind that they're registered through eB.com.hk and eB.cn, so those accs have diff. regulations, diff. phone support/reps, etc. (maybe that's the key?).

    Of course do such experiments with professionally created Stealth eB/PP accs, for sure.
