    Hi there,

    So for past week or so i've been selling social media stuff on ebay, e.g. facebook likes, was wondering if anyone has had any ideas of overcoming their rules and stopping them from removing the listings? Had arguments with their support already about it... Takes the pi..

    Or anyone have any good ideas where to sell social media stuff apart from fiverr?

    Would appreciate some ideas

    From what I know selling FB likes in Ebay is completely forbidden. You can sell this things in all Fiverr clones out there

    Ebay don't allow you to sell digital products. But if you send them a cd with the report or a letter with a report after you have completed the work, Then maybe thats a different story.

    Try a different niche. Avoid facebook and youtube and the obvious. Focus on smaller scale niche digital products and you are less likely to be flagged up. Although I find less purchase digital products on this platform

    Maybe better to use digital point or fiverr

    SEOclerk is a good one after fiverr. Then there is always craigslist. Odesk, elance should be your last option may be . There is just too much competition there.

    Or you can list your services here in BHW,WF or DP by paying upfront fee.

    Ebay can be a pain in a**. Sometimes the listings do just fine but sometimes they delete them (my experience). But its never a good idea to solely list in a single website. Try to diversify your gig in different websites.

    Selling anything on eBay like Facebook likes is forbidden and will lead to the suspension of your account.

    Use Terapeak and find something else to sell on eBay. The go back and work on selling likes on clone sites.

    Sell safe SEO jobs like backlinks to edu sites. After you sell on fleabay then cross sell your other services on your professional looking seo business site running on wordpress backend. After first sale you get buyers email. Start building a list.

    But basically you are using eBay just to build a customer list for your own personal website service.
    It can be costly doing this and risky. For long term stability I would not think the virtual product business is long lasting on eBay. They look down on you pretty hard as a seller.

    !0 months ago I used to sell Twitter followers and YouTube views on eBay. I made $10,000 and became a Top Rated in less than 2 months. Then they closed all my listings saying nothing about digital things but about spam. Anyway I found a few resellers through ebay and now I run my own website. Now they take down all listing selling this stuff within a few hours.
