    okay, lets say I want to sell nuclear bombs on ebay. eBay has nuclear bombs banned from auction, so i cant sell them directly on ebay.

    HOWEVER, i was wondering if this would allow me to not get banned on ebay and still sell:

    1. create www.nuclearbombs4sell.com, real website, with shopping cart feature and selling all of my bombs

    2. list on ebay selling "Free nuclear bomb" coupons, selling them as buy it now's for the amount i want to sell the bomb for.

    3. list my website name in the auction, or pm the buyer after purchase with my link

    im not sure how well this would work, seems so obvious to dodge banned products that it has long been fixed...but maybe im wrong?

    any other ideas to sell banned products on ebay?

    It would depend on the brand of your nuclear bombs. Some bomb makers are members of the Vero program and they monitor all auctions for their brand.

    Easier option is to find another marketplace. CL, backpage, etc.

    probly won't work since they mostly likely monitor banned items using keywords

    if you get clever enough with how you present it maybe

    I thought more about my answer and I was wrong. As stated above, the banned list probably uses keywords.

    And an added bonus to your question, DHS is now monitoring this forum. ;)

    I think you should have uses a different example instead of nuclear bombs.
    We are screwed!

    yes you can get around it, however the title cannot have the keyword which may devalue your listing, also you cannot list in the category that would be used so you would have to find a similar one

    you could cetainly get a lot of traffice from the "everything else" category by having a 99c buy it now, with your domain in the listing, the 99c can be info on how to buy or info how to buy at low cost etc

    ebay will eventually catch it, maybe a day maybe a week but you will get traffic in the time they take to catch it
