    i sold iphone unlocks for ten days for some guy(made $4000) but he was just fucking around with me and didnt get the account for the unlocks till later and my ebay account got banned. i just started talking to an old friend, very smart, unfamiliar with IM, but likes money like a drug addicted whore, and really has been on drugs his whole life, legally too, yea hes crazy, but smart as hell. and he lives but nothing other than his kids and his whole deal is to make money for them to go to college. owns a painting company but im trying to get things going on the internet with him

    we can use his ebay account now

    i heard about game codes from here, i wouldnt know how to get them if anyone can help PM me please

    does anyone know of anything allowed digitally on ebay, sent on disc or whatever too, have access to these services and can supply me with them. i got the time

    or does anyone know how to get an account with ATT or any other wireless service to sell unlocks

    Generally only digital things that are 100% allowed are content created by yourself and hosted on your servers. EBay doesnt crack down on digital listings too much but be prepared to be scammed a lot, as there is no seller protection on digitally delivered sales.

    you can send a burned CD/DVD containing the digital goods (Assuming it's legal to make burned copies of whatever your'e selling - do your own research) or a card with the serial printed on it
    as long as it has tracking that would count as a physical good being delivered and thus remove the whole "Digital" issue, it's no longer even a digital item in ebays eyes at that point.

    I'll warn you now tunescool - i've never touched the phone unlocking biz but i've rarely if ever heard good stories from ppl who get into it. It's always the same story.

    "Some guy i met online said he can sell the codes to me cheap, i sold 100's of them only to find out the guy didn't actually get any codes. He tried to run with the money and I got banned on ebay, plus the bank wants all kinds of money now!"

    as for game keys, i -have- looked into that before. 99% of the game keys being sold cheap enough that you can make a profit are going to be
    A. bootleg/illegal (key algorithms have been breached and ppl are mass producing illegal keys, insider in the company is running copies out the back door, etc)

    B. Stolen (Years ago I loaned my steam account to my buddy, shortly after he got a virus and my acc got stolen. I got it back and did some digging and discovered some scriptkiddie was tossing trojans on the web and selling off any gamer accounts he got to a 3rd party game selling site. The site was buying games from anyone who came to them and flipping them cheaply - becuase they were all stolen.)

    Digital goods can be big money because there's no inventory to handle, cheap to sell due to no shipping, and you can grow your qty as large as you want - but you really need to expand your horizon and get away from the shady areas.

    Otherwise you're just going to get your buds account banned just like you did yours.
