Default Can a feedback selling business be created

Hey everyone

I just had an idea this morning and i wondered if anyone tried buying feedback from other users. For instance i can sell you my feedback by buying a rather cheap or irrelevant item from your stealth account store.

Only thing i can think of going wrong so far could be eBay connecting the dots on that.

It happens all the time. Loads of people sell and buy feedback. The problem is it can go very wrong and the accounts can (and often do) get limited

You'll need the feedback from multiple accounts for it to actually reflect on the rating - duplicate feedback / multiple sales between same users only count once towards the rating.

Then your right, you'll need to figure out how to avoid ebay connecting the dots, as they already have methods in place to prevent users raking in high feedback using illegitimate sales.

The best way to build feedback is find items which are cheap (less than around /$5), and make sure they are super popular so you get fast sales. Include a nice note inside when you ship the item to say Thank you... please leave feedback... include a nice gift.

You really only need 50 positive ratings (IMO) - for regular buyers to perceive you to be competent enough on ebay.

Yes a thank you and feed back note go a long way for sure definitely raises your chances of getting feedback.

Ebay and their bots are very good at detecting this sort of feedback manipulation.
The level of risk involved in such a venture simply doesnt justify the gains - not when its much easier to simply sell a bunch of cheap dollar store items to get quick feedback.
