    Hello all, I've been lurking around and I'm reading a lot so before I start, I have some questions.
    First, I will be selling high quality replicas.
    I have my supplier. I bought a lot of thing from him and sold them in my school.
    I see that the items sells very well in ebay even if 75% of them are replica.

    So here's my questins:

    - My account does not have +5 feedbacks and is new so I bought an old one with 12 feedbacks. Is there any risk?
    - I see that there's a shipping price. So if the price of the item is 10$ and I put the shipping 10$, they are going to pay me 20$ right?
    - Another question about the shipping, when I do my listings, should I put differents listings to differents countrys so I get more sales?

    Thanks. :)

    Yes, there is risk because your items are probably replica as well... Your account becomes a bit lower risk after 90 days, but you can still get limited very easily. Your assumption about shipping is correct, but I would offer free shipping to increase sales. Especially if you are selling high profit items. Free shipping also helps your search results. I always list my items with international shipping 'worldwide' and an additional fee for this of course. Don't list multiple auctions for the same product.

    Good luck!

    BuyLow is right, after 90 days the 'heat' on the account is less, but none the less you can still get limited for little to nothing.

    From my experiences offering the free shipping does boost sales, and the customer has a higher perceived value of the sale in their mind over another seller that may charge $10 for shipping on the exact same item.
