    Correct me if I am wrong but I think you can send people to your blog to show them a better picture of whatever you are selling.....right?

    Any ways, I want to setup mulitiple e*bay account so that I can always be the winner to my auctions. I want the traffic but I don't want a winner. I don't want to hassel with winners and saying the object is no longer for sale b/c too many of these and e*bay will pull your acount. I'll eat the small fees of ebay, i don't mind. I don't want to set a reserve b/c people tend to shy away from looking further at your ad.

    Here's my plan:

    Use a VCC for each account
    Use a different IP addy everytime I create an account
    Use different info (name, city, state) from around the US

    Did I miss anything? Or is there a better way?
    Thanks for your input!

    Be sure not to log into different accounts with the same IP.. And clear cookies constantly and it could work.

    Ya, I forgot about the cookies. Could I just set them to erase everytime I log off?

    Kenel - This is not a CPA method that I am using. there are a lot of great threads on CPA in this forum. use the search tool on this site. Good luck!!

    honestly, i think your best bet is setting a really low starting price (.01) and then just some higher than retail reserve. Your listings will cost a bit more because of the reserve, but ebay is pretty smart about catching shill bidders.

    Another option is you can end ebay auctions early and not sell to anyone. I have done this before when the amount is unsatisfactory. This way you avoid the reserve fee.

    Yes, I was planning to start at .01 cent to encourage seekers but I think setting a high reserve would be best and I rather not pull auctions before they close b/c too many of these and ebay will close your account.

    Option Two: I'll create 5 accounts and trade with someone else five accounts. This way I'll have a total of 10 accounts and you'll have a total of the same 10 accounts. If you give me two accounts I'll give you two accounts and so on and so on. with just a few people doing this, we can create a good list of accounts to use for various reasons.
