    Hey everyone... First, thank you for existing and all. I found BHW through a friend and am glad he recommended it. Absolutely chock full of ideas, opportunities, and very much arms you with useful knowledge. With that said, I could use some useful knowledge about now... I have two eBay accounts and am wondering if they're salable. Before I give details on the first I should say it's no longer registered. However it wasn't suspended, I just cancelled it (so I thought anyway) and hadn't used it in years. The second account has 2 neutral and 1 negative FB, and I have 123 FB's all together. The last activity was 4 years ago and the account will be 6 years old in January. So I guess my first question is is it even doable to try and sell them? And if so, how do I go about getting the one re-registered? Thank you guys in advance!

    Yeah I mean just because it has a few negative feedbacks does not mean it is worthless or nothing.
    However it is still not worth as much as an account with a clean record.

    Madstacks, yeah, that's my hope anyway... That those neg FB wouldn't prevent a sale. The accounts are all aged well and established.

    Wonderful, truth be told I'm not sure... I'm still doing research but would love to get an idea, so of course I'd be happy to get some!

    Maybe instead of selling them you could think about selling a product on them :)

    :) No you're right... Honestly I never thought of the idea to sell, but I have this acquaintance from my wife's non blood cousin's next door neighbor who suggested I try it.

    Oddly enough, the reason why I have those two older ones is because as soon as I got neg FB I bailed! Probably unnecessary but now I have a current one with over 200, all positive!~

    Think about why someone would buy an Ebay account and not start one from scracth? What kind of business are they in? probably scammers! do you really want to sell your account to a scammer?

    Long time no chat! Yeah eyecandy2 I do understand what you're saying, however a friend had told me this is the site to explore the options of selling the old accounts... Which as you might imagine I'd still like to do

    I am shaking in my boots at the ebays or googles policies. If we started going by those terms we would
    not make any money. Once you get some neg feedback with an ebay account the account is worth lots less.

    Honestly that's what I was thinking myself... And like, that's why this one section is here right, to explore options that official TOS policies and what not would block?

    And as for the neg FB, yeah honestly I'm nowhere near shocked, but was still curious if they're salable as they still are pretty old and have almost excellent FB anyway.

    If you worry about those negative/neutral feedbacks try contacting eBay's customer support. I prefer contacting them via chat. Usually 80% of my negative/neutral feedbacks are removed. There are specific feedback policies which you can use while chatting with the agent. Hope it helps

    Hmm, thanks for the help but I think they told me late last year that after a certain amount of time they can't do anything anyway... Think that's BS?

    Of course it is BS they just do not care you are one seller out of millions so why have the hassle.

    Feedbacks are indeed valuable on eBay. When I was working there, we would generally get calls regarding requests for removal. And unfortunately, feedback removal are like black and white. if it doesn't meet the guidelines then you are stuck with it. unless your public enemy #1 (Which is of course the buyer who left you that feedback) would be willing to revise it. . less likely though.

    If you ever find yourself maybe needing someone to take a second look on your feedback. I may just be able to help.; I do have connections within the Trust & Safety Team who may be swayed to be lenient towards its removal. . but that's another topic though.

    That's my take on this topic.. :)

    Yep, and that's where I fell in, especially with the FB being so old now. But thank you for the offer, I'd definitely want to explore further but it doesn't seem like anyone is clamoring for these accounts:[

    So what was your time with eBay like?
