Thumbs up Ebay Shop Dilemma

Hi everyone Im new to the site and just looking for a bit of information pleaseeee

I was until recently using my own ebay/paypal accounts and was very succesful making between 3000 and 5000 gross per week selling chinese trainers lol.

The accounts were recently limited due to paypal requesting invoices..which of course I could not supply so they limited it for good.

I have got a friend who has an ebay and verified paypal acc both about 5 years old...hes agreed to let me create an ebay store on his account and use his verified paypal to accept and withdraw payments for a small fee of course.

My dilemma is basically what sort of numbers of the various items would be acceptable for me to list on this account straightaway as it only has around 40 FB?

I was thinking possibly 2 items with 12 different size variations to start with...totalling 24 pairs of trainers as my other account was exceeding 100 pairs per week on a regular basis.

Also what would be a rough estimate as to a safe amount of money to be chanelled through on a weekly basis so as not to have the dreaded invoice request again from paypal?

All accounts are uk based too if thats any help....thanks a lot guys what a great site....my stealth guide is being ordered as we speak!!!

Cheers

I wouldn't worry too much - your account will not have a long shelf life I'm afraid. The items you are selling are obviously watched and the invoice question will raise its head again very quickly.

LOL - Yes, but you wont like it - stop selling ⊗⊗⊗⊗ and find a new product. In the current climate if you are determined to sell ⊗⊗⊗⊗ products you need to be able to make lots and lots of new accounts. I certainly cannot see it getting any easier. You have Ebay on your back, Paypal on your back and customs on your back - a lot of stress IMO - but if that's the way you want to go get lots of new accounts up and running

Haha. Man he probably makes at least 100% profit on those things so I don't think it'd be a problem for him.

Are they like accessories? If it's a few bucks I can understand, but making 100% on $50+ items seems hard to do for me.

It's a person, usually with a yellowish skin, dark hair and asian eyes.

His job is to get you fit and he shows you the exercises you need to do

He's a Chinese Trainer
