    Greetings,
    I have been selling authentic goods with this account since 2004. Over the last year the counterfeits and fees have quickly erased any profit. I found this forum as I was looking for new uses for the account and it seems like there may be a few options.

    The current ideas are:
    1. Start selling fakes with everyone else
    2. Open a worldwide brands account and look for new products/suppliers

    Neither of these options appeal to me.

    I definitely need some fresh ideas and any suggestions or thoughts would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jack

    Care to share your suppliers that you got authentic goods from? Sounds like you don't use them any more and I would like to check them out. Not easy finding suppliers that sell authentic goods. You can post here or pm me. Let me know. Thanks for your time.

    Sound like this is your personal eBay account. If that's the case, don't use it to sell fakes. Once you sell counterfit goods you are at risk of getting your account banned and all of the work you have done getting your feedback to 10,000 is gone.

    If you are going to sell fakes, you need anonymous eBay accounts.

    Without knowing what products you are into it is hard to advise on what to do next and you can't be expected to reveal your Niche on an open forum.

    However, it sounds like you are an experienced seller and can procure goods, so really drill down into the research and see what you can find which is selling.

    Sell the account.

    I am sure it will bring in something.

    Thanks for the replies.
    This is a personal account turned business account. I have a few other accounts but I rarely use them.

    The primary product is clothing and it seems that buyers are getting less selective regarding the authenticity.

    If I were to sell the account where would I want to offer it. All of the account I have seen for sale have less than 1000 fb and rarely go for more than $1500.
