Selling Replicas On Ebay
Finding a supplier:
1. Find a reliable seller (NOT DROPSHIPPER) - Dropshipping will lead to problems (example: packaging will be coming from china). I have been through hundreds of suppliers, and I am lucky to have the one i have now.
2. Quality - again, this is down to the supplier. If it wasn't for my suppliers 1:1 quality, i would struggle to make the profits i do.
3. A verified ebay & paypal (see guide below).
4. Try to not over sell vERO items. (Use google to find out what ebay vero is).
5. Find niche products (remember you're not the only one doing this).
Opening an eBay & PayPal Account
(Again, this is summarized, following this will be successful, but please do take more precautions).
You WILL need the following:
1. A bank account (never used on PayPal before)
2. A phone number (never used on paypal before) use soho66.co.uk or a US alternative to forward a phone call to your mobile number. SipGate is a free alternative, but it is just like skype, and you have to leave it running to receive calls (not good, as ebay like to do random checkups on customers, if no ring, you are limited.)
3. A valid address (use 192.com, you don't have to live there) - Why valid? (ebay & paypal use electoral registries to check the addresses exist)
4. A new email address
5. A first & last name (Try to keep it realistic, and pick a common one eg. John Smith) - why? i'll come to that later.
6. Stealth Documents - Eventually ebay / paypal will ask for ID or proof of address - get creative, this is easy to bypass if you know what you're doing . Be clever, paypal/ebay will only ask for documents if you are becoming suspicious (this is why i have so many accounts, to spread the products across).
7. Windows user account - The idea of a stealth account is to remain stealthed. You MUST create a different WINDOWS USER ACCOUNT per paypal/ebay account you have. Ebay uses flash cookies to link suspended accounts to your main accounts. And believe me, they are damn good at it.
8. Unique IP per acount - I use a mobile dongle, which changes ip everytime i disconnect it.
