Default New account having trouble keeping listing up

Hi,

I have 3 new accounts and have been having trouble keeping the listing active before eB takes it down.My items may be considered high risk
As soon as i list my item, it gets taken down right away in a few hours. I have never experienced this before.

I post in:
- electronics
- digital product

How do I pass this initial strict phase of my new accounts?

Is it an aging issue? I do age the accounts about 3 months and post a low risk item as the first listing that doesn't sell.

Are you successfully selling low risk items and getting positive feedback before listing the high risk items?

No, not selling anything beforehand.

How many low risk items do you try to sell before putting your actual high risk items up?

Electronics and digital products are risky as first sales - perhaps after at least 3 months of solid sales, you could tread in those categories...however it's not really a set rule of 3 months...just feels a bit better

I sell actual physical items, so I sell cheap, kinda techy, kinda related stuff to my actual product.

I start off my accounts with used blu-rays, sprinkle in some low value used tech (RAM, external hard drives), might even throw in a cheap parts laptop if I have one and then start selling my real product while still listing used blu-rays for a month or two before switching over 100% to my real product.

I wait until I have 20-30 transactions before listing my real item.

But you're selling digital stuff which eBay considers far more dodgy, so...

IMO it doesn't matter how long you 'mature' the account, you'll get flagged as soon as you list any digital products.

You might, just might get a bit of a short run if your account was 5 years old with 800 feedback, but 6 months old, with half a dozen sales of pencils, or used socks.

Sellers need to get their head round the fact that all sales venues now have a raft of bots patrolling their sites 24/7 looking for non-compliant listings regardless of account standing. That's before competitors and do-gooders start reporting you if you're peddling dodgy wares.

Stealth is hard enough as it is, the only was to survive is to keep it as visibly legitimate as you can. The days of burner accounts are effectively gone.

THese are all valid points

I do remember seeing the 90 day review and x amount of transactions. That may get past the first security check of bots.

My plan is to sell only up to $500 after the account is "Strong" after 90 days

But the question is if i have the patience for this 3-6 month aging process.

After you sale $250 total and 25 transactions and 3 months after first sale everything runs smoother.

And if you really want to list risky get top rated seller first (100 transactions/$1000 total sales with shipping and uploading tracking on time)

You still have to slowly list and sale I don’t care what previous sales you have.. slowly build eBay trust to sale whatever you are trying to sale

You have no choice!

Even then, as I said above, all this talk of creating a strong account to dump your digital wares onto is bull$hit. If I list keys, game accounts or suchlike on my decade old account today I'll get a warning from ebay by the end of the week.

Seems like you are set on a plan - always have backup accounts going in the event of takedown/suspension if so
