Default Item selling for more than what you can list?

New seller with $500 limit.

So my question is what happens if my item sells for more than $500?
Also.. it's not a very "suspicious item" either.

On a new account....if you list that item...you will get limited faster than you can count that money. Ebay will think it's a very risky move on your part.

How many FB's do you have currently?
how old is the account in terms of months?
How many fingers am I holding up?

I already have a positive feedback from a buyer.
But i can see why they would limit me.. it's understandable.

So i guess i'll try to work my way up to get the $500 limit removed :>

Very risky, however I have also read it can be successful... This might be a great question for ebay agent. You could possibly get limits raised out of it. Guess depends on how smooooth talker you can be......

If you sell an item for $500. You will have reached your limit for selling that month will have to wait until the following month to list again for it to reset.

Whys everybody telling them that his account is going to get limited. I use to do something similar all the time on new accounts with limits. I would never do it the first sell or first couple weeks but whenever i get close to my limit i would also find a item that i know would sell past my limits but i do an auction for .99 cent and it will sell for over what i am allowed to sell. It is how you get your limits raised faster if done correctly.

He also said that the item is not very risky. jmellow18 if i was you i would sell a couple more things to get a few more feedback and if your item is worth over $500 you can always just do a auction style listing and let the item ride.. You won't be able to list any more after that auction is done but you got what you accomplished right?

Good to use after 90 days, to increase limits.

Before that, I'd rather not push it.

Yeah... that was the original plan when i saw my limit was $500.
I just didn't know if the bid was allowed to go over that amount.

I really don't want to push it and end up getting limited.
Thanks for the replies.

I've done this before with great luck.

Often times, it means I can't list anymore that month, but when the next month rolls around I automatically get my limits raised.

Selling for more than my selling limit is great for me, personally.
