Default Buying ebay feedback

Hi guys,

Is it okay to use mastercard gift cards to checkout at ebay ?
You probably seen some selling feedback for like 99cents,is it okay to pay for these with gift cards from my local superstores?
I want to build some feedback on my ebay acc before i start selling stuff.

Thanks
Take care

Do not buy $.99 cent items. Ebay is aware of what you are doing and will suspend or restrict your account. This is not a safe practice.

is there any other ways to gain feedback on a fresh account ? How about buying 2$ items, getting feedback and checkingout with prepaid gift cards?
Does ebay accept prepaid gifts cards at their checkout ?

There are services out there that will give you feedback, and it would be safer than buying very cheap items.

it's worked for me no problems but I bought real items like iPhone screen protectors and other cheap items etc
nothing electronic delivery
there are thousands of low cost items on eBay nobody gets suspended for buying them
I bought 50 item all under $.50 including shipping
$75,000/5000 accounts now they all started at 10/1000

Why don't you start selling few dollar stuff so you make your account grow properly?

Buyer feedback is worth nothing, nada, niente, gar nicht, rien.

Buying items for 99p for feedback has never caused me any issues.

If ebay construes it as feedback manipulation you may have issues though.

The fact is - eBay buyers are strongly psychologically affected by presence or absence of feedback-star next to the seller nickname.

I'm watching this behave-pattern for past few days:

*Exactly same items,
*with the same price,
*almost the equal sellers accounts:
*Rating 10 and Rating 8 -

Sales ratio 4:1...

Curious that none of them have no single seller feed.

SO, personally, I would definitely raise feedbacks of my sellers even buying $0.01 digital pictures. BUT first 10 feedbacks only.

As an account seller, I have seen many buyers try to buy things less than a dollar that are usually digital pictures, e-books, screensavers, or something that does not require shipping. Maybe it is because they have done this on a new account or maybe because they have bought so much of this crap within a small amount of time, but it is not safe to do.

Definitely agree with this one, you only need to visit fiverr.com. I know someone will say blah blah blah, it's not safe, but if you try it yourself, you know that it works..

if you do feedback right it will help your account a lot. I get what your saying. IF u have 20 buyer feedback it will make your account look more trusted than starting with 0 feedback. even when i buy from sellers i go based of feedback. if they have 0 feedback and someone else has 25 im more likely going to go with the 25 feedback even if its just buyer feedback.

Some buyers dont even check if the your feedback is from buying or selling they just look at the number so although it does nothing to strengthen your account buying feedback can be useful,
i just like to get to 10 even if its 8 buying and 2 selling.

Just want to share my personal exp to let OP know, I'm still using this method and it works fine, not leading to suspend any account

It can work but generally ONLY this activity can be seen as risky bidding by eb
