Default When starting on ebay, how much is too much?

When you start listing on ebay, the advice is to start slow. But, how much is too much? Is listing a $100 item a red flag? Or are we talking $500+? I'm sure there has to be legit new users that are listing things around the house that costs more than $200 or whatever. Are they getting red flagged?

i try to stay under $25 start price but it could sell for $50. i usually list about 10 of these to start on day one, then about 8 on day two, then 6 on day three....all are 3 day auctions. after 30 days i will list 25 a day with some starting price at $50 each.

there is no general rules but it think that the age matters .
i see some sellers with 0 feedback listing Macbook apple laptops in eBay.
so just follow the forum advice and try to get everything correct before you list.

Ok, thanks for that. I have an account that is a little over a year old. I have only purchased 1 item on this account and that was a year ago.

What i do with new accounts is the first week nothing and than everyday 1 item. As soon as i have some Positive feedback 5+, i start listing more. If you didn't sell on your account (even if it is a year old) and still have to become a seller i should list slowly. But to be safe, not to much at ones and try to stay away from listing to much Vero items.

How slow should you go when you make a new account? For my current 3, I waited a month before I listed anything(i sell vero) and then only 2-3 a week for 2 weeks and then 4-5 next 2 weeks and so on. Am I going too slow or at the right pace? My items are between 50-110. I want to be be selling like 10-20 a week on an account eventually. Thanks!

Too fast.

NOT that I sell that stuff but I would make more accounts to spread the goodies. Or as I like to say to you don't sell vero.
