    Hey All!
    I have found a supplier of Factory Unlocked Iphone 3G's and I would like to sell these things on ebay.
    Problem is, I wouldn't be able to do it with the 21 day hold because he needs payment obviously before he ships.
    Right now I have a 3 month old account and it only has one fb so I was wondering what I could do to prevent the hold.
    If I bought a account could i hook the old paypal to that new ebay account?
    What about refunding entire purchase and saying it was on accident?
    Or could I just buy 100 cheap items does that work?
    Lastly, is there a time in new accounts when it auto holds like if its under a couple months old?
    Thanks!!!
    Mike

    if you are getting these from a Chinese exporter, have fun getting scammed. I was in the import export biz for a while and Chinese scammers now offer unlocked iPhones (supposedly) anywhere from 120-300 per unit. ALL SCAMS!! Just google "Chinese iPhone scams", or "imported iphone scams". They always want you to Western Union or MoneyGram and will never accept payments that are protected. Caveat emptor

    Scammers are everywhere not just China.

    Have you ordered from this supplier before?

    Worst case scenario, the guy runs off with your money(actually the buyer's money) and you will be in debt to the buyer.

    I am scaring to use paypal also now. Buyers simply stating unauthorized transaction and paypal revoking the sales. I lost $300 that way.

    If your worried about PayPal why not get a merchant account...?

    That way your funds cant be held with the click of a mouse...


    If your intrested I can set you up...

    As TheTRUTH said, go with a merchant account or use a different payment processor like Google Checkout. Paypal is a nazi system and if you want to move items in bulk, I would definitely NOT use Paypal.

    Yea hes from the US.
    Merchant accounts seem very difficult to get.
    Is google checkout safe for sellers?
    I still have 3 people looking for these and im leaving them hanging lol.

    Sharpie, do not sell on CL with paypal, they are all scams. Most commonly, they ask you to ship far far away and they will pay using paypal, call it unauthorized and charge it back. It is one of the most common scams there are. Just sell em locally.

    As for the 21 day hold, I have 35 feedback 100% ratio, 4.8+ on all my ratings and my hold just got lifted. I can now sell stuff without having the 21 day hold :D.

    EDIT: reread that, sounded kinda cocky, i just mean to say, you don't need 100 feedback at all to lift the limit.
