    That's what I was thinking...

    Sell something at a low cost because people won't hesitate as much at spending a small amount if you have a low/no rating. Sell it cheap, maybe even at a loss to get your initial rating up.

    Buy some cheap .99 items to gain some initial feedback ratings. I usually buy 10 items in the first few days of my new account so I can get to 10 feedbacks which will allow me to do one-day seller listings. Once you set up as a seller you can try selling some cheap items like ebooks, recipes, pictures etc. but realize that this is technically frowned upon by eBay and could result in them either canceling your listings or suspending your selling privileges.

    eBay is all about patience. Slow build up. Get the account several months old before you ramp things up.

    I used to sell some e books really cheap like 99 cents and stuff like that. It's a good way to quickly rack up some feedback.

    of course if I sale things quickly I get feedbacks quickly but what if my items aren't even getting viewed because they aren't popular or no one even search for them

    let me ask it differently
    where can I find partners with multiple stealth accounts that I can sell to and buy from for a mutual benefit? (positive feedback and high DSRs)

    the key is to buy cheapstuff and then sell at almost cost after fees. This will allow you to sell 100 items in no time flat. we sell about 2000 items and actually use some of these"Fillers" just to keep up powerseller status

    This.

    There is no other way. Buy/sell cheap things for around 10 feedbacks, then after, you're good to go...

    that sounds too hard to accomplish
    I mean what are hot selling items that I can buy at 0.99 and successfully resell in no time? it's probably iphone screen protectors but there is HUGE competition so I have no chance

    Try buy cheap item at least 10 item with price under $0.99 + free shipping :) Or as seller you also can sell eBook,but make sure use 'digital item' category on eBay :)

    selling digital stuff sounds hard I mean I don't know anything about it where to buy it and how to sell it
    anyone wanna team up with me so we buy 0.99 items from each other for mutual feedback? (need someone with multiple accounts to buy from and sell to)

    Sounds hard????? oh come on now...

    Nothing in life is free, and it's only hard if you choose to be weak and not get the right attitude. My plan is a breeze and can be done in a day. That's easy as hell.

    My current projects are three book length creations and running crowd funding projects on four sites for everything. If I'm awake, I work. And you know what? I support myself, my spouse, my kids, my sister and Avery sick mom. Is that too hard? No. I choose to be awesome and never give up.

    Fix that attitude. That's the best advice you need...

    Well, I guess when I first started doing things like that (especially youtube marketing), it was a bit of a nightmare and it took a LOOOONG time before I got good.

    I was just really disheartened by your posts calling it too hard. Just realize that you shouldn't ever give up without even trying, seriously. I mean, whatever you end up doing, it's cool to work smart rather than too hard, but I'd recommend trying a bit of everything to see if you can be surprised. I never thought I'd be good at the video stuff. But I just found that if I act the fool, sometimes take off my shirt in my vids, I can get a lot of attention from certain demographics... and I found I can use the videos to sort of charm these people (mostly women) to buy my recommendations.

    Last week, my spouse dared me to try to sell Amazon affiliate links for Tampons. I do love a challenge but... well, I made a video of me singing all stupid "if I was a boy" by Beyonce, but it was "If I was a girl... I'd probably be on my period." That video directed tons of chics to Amazon, and they ate up the brand my girl picked out.

    Maybe "ate up" is the wrong phrase here...

    ANYwho, my point is this: just do your best, ok? I don't know how experienced you are, and I'm sorry actually for jumping to conclusions like that. I just get frustrated with the word "can't," as I think it's the lamest thing ever. You go out and you CAN, ok? You go be AWESOME! :)
