Default [HELP] Selling iPhone Cables in New accounts

I made my self a stealth account few days ago. And now I have a whole new eBay account. And now I have to find something to sell there which must be low in risk.

I think iPhone Cables would be a good shot. And I don't know the risk selling them in eBay. Do any one have experience selling them in a complete new account? if yes, How many of them can I sell on my account to start?

Thank You for your information

As long as you dont mention anywhere in the heading or description brand names ie IPHONE etc you may get away with it on a new account.
However selling cables that you cant mention what there for may prove more tricky !

Thank You for your reply. And I think there is no way leaving the word "iPhone" in the listing. Because it's specially made for iPhone 5 and I have to state it. Are you sure stating "iPhone 5" in the title could get my account restricted?

About as sure as the fact the sun will rise in the morning and set in the evening !
Read around lots of similar threads on listing items on new accounts .
Anything new and branded with a logo / patent is considered high risk amongst others.

You should be fine as long as you don't claim they are the genuine Apple article.

Yeah. I understand. Can you check if this title is ok for the listing?

Apple will VeRO you. They had a huge crackdown on the exact item you're listing just after the iPhone 5 was released, I've seen some who still have them up but it's easily a high-risk item. eBay wont do anything and Apple will hopefully for your sake take a little bit of time to VeRO you so you might be able to get rid of them but using them as a way to build up a new account is definitely not recommended.

Yep, they own the rights to the usb cables so they can rip everybody off selling them for $29. Anything else is considered counterfiet

Thanks, i stand corrected. Never was a problem with the old 30 pin connector. Guess they want to have the lightning plug all to themselves.

any item that has a brand name is regarded as HIGH RISK. Please be aware of this as you start off selling.

It is tough to list this item. You will have to experiment listings and see what works. You risk getting suspended so its really up to your decision.

Kind of unlikely that people who are successful with listing this item may give you hints ...logically :(

All the best.

Apple bought the word 'lightning' from Harley Davidson.

They hope to dominate the market with the cables.

Does this apply to aftermarket iphone cases as well? I am established TRS already, not a new account. But I hate getting hit with VeRO...happened back about 7 or 8 years ago to me and had to actually forfeit the item to an attorney for the company AND pay a fine. Back when I knew nothing about VeRO, stealth, etc
