Default Tricks to selling Saturated Items?

I recently got a new stealth account and wanted to rack up some good feedback. So I figured I would sell some items that I had sitting in my closet to do so. I have those Soft TPU sports cases that were in style a few years ago. I am selling much under everyone else but just do not have any feedback etc.

Do you guys suggest anything for selling an item like this on a brand new account?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Better listings and cheaper prices. There are no "tricks"...

If you're just wanting feedback, sell it for $0.99 and free shipping.

Feedback doesn't mean anything, though. Buyers don't really care.

buyers are known to back out when they read the feedback after they placed the order,I did.
Sellers who have 5 figures feedback are the worst,item never shipped,shipped wrong item,no response to inquiry,missing quantity,take too long ,from China,worst it comes from AMZN,COSTCO,jet,com,WMT.

Most buyers aren't like you. Most buyers don't even read the phucking description.

Especially on mobile apps... the feedback is near the bottom. Ain't nobody got time fo dat!

The problem with the TPU cases you stockpiled in your closet years ago is that there probably aren't many people left using the phone the case is for. That's why selling phone cases online (or anywhere else) takes some expertise and you always see huge liquidation lots of cases for sale. When you order you need to have a good idea of how many you'll be able to sell before the phone the case fits becomes irrelevant. If you know what you're doing they can be immensely profitable but otherwise you end up with cases and cases of phone cases sitting around taking up space and eventually being thrown away.

That's my $.02. Even if your listing was on the front page I doubt you'd do very well since it's old outdated cases you're trying to sell.

There are no tricks besides paying for product placement even then if your account ain't 500+ feedback no one will buy

Exactly. Feedback on eBay is irrelevant. Some of my best sales are on accounts with little feedback, and they can do considerably better than the ones with high feedback.

Also be aware that most buyers there days are using mobile and don't even see the feedback at all, nor concerned about it.

They don't even read the full description of the listing. Happened to me everytime.
That's true. They don't care about the feedback, etc (atleast most of them buyers). They care more on the PRICE and nothing else.

I'm talking about saturated items only you goof.

Yea sure you can sell a relatively low radar item at a discount you will make a sale here and there but try a iPhone 10 or another (SATURATED) item... now see what happens to your account.

Looks like what you might have meant was popular high-dollar items. Someone selling low-cost popular shiit isn't going to have a single feedback-related selling problem.

ESPECIALLY from buyers on the EB app. No one(yes, agent000014601, I know you do) is scrolling to the damn bottom to check a seller's feedback.

Yah, you are correct. They were bought 2-3 years ago. iPhone 6 cases and only one were sold for 0.99 cents and free shipping in a week.
