    Start with items that will sell quick, If you are looking to get quick feedbacks just try to break-even on your items so they sell fast and in large quantities, in no time you will have a very strong account with good feedbacks to start off with.

    I remember back when I was doing ebay, I would focus on buying wallpapers for a few cents or a couple dollars to build up a nice and decent feedback history.

    Just buy a couple of really cheap items (1p) each day. Even if you don't need them.

    Just make sure that you pay instantly after buying, if you do this, you will always get positive feedback :)

    Just buy cheap items and make sure you do fast payments. Again ensure that you dont sell at first, just buy. By this you can avoid getting a negative feedback from less caring buyers who didn't like your items.

    1) Sell any cheap things around the house you don't need any more & post fast

    2) Know a shop selling something cheap? Buy one (or more) and sell on eBay, as long as you break even its all going towards that rating

    3) Buy cheap items & pay fast

    4) Sell those cheap items back on eBay .. Same price & postage will cost you nothing in the long run..

    If I'm not mistaken eBay actually imposes a selling limit on new accounts. Sure you can sell items right now but they will stop you from selling over xx amount of items (30 if I'm not wrong). Then you will have to wait another month in order to sell the same item again. However, you can sell somethnig else from a different category.

    To answer your question, try selling something that alot of people want to buy. Something they use in their everyday life perhaps. Or just sell the second or unwanted items lying around your house. That would probably get you around 20-30 feedbacks. Just be sure to list and show any defects in the item. You dont want any angry customers now do you?

    I've been a Powerseller for 5+ years, but I sell a product that I manufacture and produce so there's plenty of profit. If you want to make a living out of eBay, I do think this is one of the best routes to go. Of course, buying low and selling high is much easier, but with eBay, almost everything already has sellers and competition already so it is tough to find your own niche and do well since the only competitive edge you have would be on selling lower than others.

    Manufacturing or producing your own products doesn't have to be as hard as it sounds: printed T-Shirts, drawings, putting jewels on cell phone cases, custom made stickers with a vinyl machine ... I know this sounds like a lot of work (and isn't really BH), but it could potentially be a good niche if you land in one.

    You can only find so much old stuff to sell around the house that people will want to pay for.

    Alternately, you can find overstock items, clearance sales and even outlet sales. I've even sold some Coach bags my wife bought at outlets for real cheap because of some deep discounts, for 2-3 times the price.

    Good luck!

    Buy/Sell digital items (CD-Keys, Accounts, WoW Items). Buy and sell for the same price.. you will take the small hit on fees, but you can find digital items for very little $, and only lose 9% per item you sell (the fees)

    You can find digital items for $1.00... re-sell and get $.90 for it after cutting a penny off the price. So bacially $0.10 for 1 buy and 1 sell feedback.

    So with this method you lose a lot of money, as you do not only make no profit but you also have to pay insertion fee, final value fee and paypal fee from your own pocket for each item sold.

    Moreover, I sell digital items, and I made the experience that there are many people on eBay that simply do not leave feedback, even if you give them positive feedback first they do not reply. So if you get this sort of buyers you did not only lose your money but also did not get feedback, so double loss ....

    Moreover, game cd keys, accounts etc. aren't that cheap .... in my country, I have to pay at least ?2,68 (insertion+final value+paypal) for the cheapest item I have .... so if I sell ten of them at the price I buy them, I already lost ?26 and surely out of this 10 only 5-6 leave feedback ....

    If you are just trying to get your feedback up, buy instead of sale. When I had first started, I was buying obscure things like packs of stickers from China, little led keychains, etc. They're usually about 99 cents shipped. If you have 10 seller feedback (enough for the stars), the rest can come in time.
