    I'm a new seller. I read thread "Have a Question about eBay/PayPal/EPN? Look here first"
    but I read many thread about ebay,and I saw they commented: the new account usually be locked by ebay.
    So Can you tell about the reason for it?
    and how I can do to against this mistake?
    Thank You!

    Sell off cheap accessories and build some quick 'Seller Feedbacks', avoid selling items such as eBooks, softwares, wallpapers and other intangible products. Also stop looking for quick big profit because thats not going to happen so soon. You need to work with dollar or two a sale.

    The best way to get started is to sell stuff you have unwanted at home. When you look around you will be amazed at the amount of items you come up with.

    For example, cell phones, minidiscs, cd players, books, cd's, jeans, tees and such. There are loads of things that will sell on eBay.

    Then the next step is to start buying and selling HOT WHEELS. Word of warning, you can't expect to simply walk into this area on eBay. You need to do market research, and spend some time on the background research.

    Maybe HOT WHEELS is not something you want to get into . . . Who Knows.

    But it's there if you are interested.

    And please remember you are not limited to only eBay. You can sell on Amazon . . . and many more

    Check it out . . .

    Start selling things for free so that you can get feedback. Once your feedback score is good then people will start trusting you and buy your products. Do not violate ebay rules or you will get banned.

    Used books is what I start off with and it works fine. The person who I buy my accounts from helped me get my accounts started and I dont get them locked at all. She explained what I needed to list to avoid ebay locking it up.

    sell for no profit for at least 6 months...no wages nothing...pick quick selling items. After 1 year you will reap the rewards, thats my advice anyways...or sell at small profit but everything goes back into buying more stock.

    New ebayers usually fail as they take wages out, get greedy, go on holiday and then no money to buy stock...ebay is all about expanding quickly to keep up with competition, why? well it is only a matter of time before another seller with a better marketing strategy or bigger buying power takes you out....
