Default Good items to first sell on fresh account?

I've run out things to sell around the house, the best starter item I've founded was yugioh cards, but I'm scared ill get linked because all my stealth accounts sell similar products and I don't want all my first accounts to start with me selling yugioh cards to build some selling history, it looks to suspicious.

What are some good products/junk to sell to build your selling history when you first make an account?

thanks

Selling things around the house is great.
Same items as previous account is fine too, just make sure you take new and different photos with different file names.

Everything needs to be different to the T , except for the item itself.

Avoid even used Apple stuff for example. Or high ticket items.

as long as everything looks different: listings, pictures, shipping costs, price, auction type, i can't really see a problem. another thing that is good to start with is used books and reading material

Go to a thrift store or yard sale and get items.

Has been reported here that any cards with that name caused people to get mc999.

I go to thrift stores to find items to sell. I sell mostly women's clothing but I also dabble in electronics,and a wide assortment of other items.

iPhones / iPads / Galaxy tablets all good items for a new account.....

No, anything basic that doesn't have brand names / logos etc. everyday household items.

I sell hard mechanics tools. Singular or sets of sockets, wrenches screw drivers ect. Something most buyers can complain about, a particularly non-picky customer base ect. I also have found that there is a nearly infinite, constant, demand on items such as this, so your auctions WILL sell.

However, I personally would not sell electronics on a new account. I have been targeted and scammed once selling a phone on a new account and I believe it was because I had registered just recently and the buyer knew he could win over a case on me.

yanov10, why are you spamming the forum like this?
There is another thread going on on the same subject where you have just posted.
Please do not run 2 identical threads at once.

I like starting off an account by listing a cheap book and starting the auction at a penny, guaranteed to sell and always gets me a couple good feedbacks before listing my real items.

Its far from ideal

You need to try to stick to unbranded used household items
