Default eBay question: What categories are best to avoid when I start selling again?

I just bought a Stealth account on here. I have workout DVD's, women's face cream and an adult card game to sell. Are any of these high risk? Thanks!

Workout DVD's are very very very high risk if they're big name brands

If you list any of these items.....your going to kill the account you purchased.
Workout DVD's are super notorious for being problematic, Face Cream will have a category limit.

Funny thing is, we all know daaaaaamn well exactly what hes selling lol

Beachbody just did a massive sweep 6 months ago and the workout video thing is over. Toss those dvds in the trash u dont have a chance in hell moving those things. Besides u only paid a few bucks for em anyways

cards against humanity....cmon dude really? Just hang it up dont come here, buy stealths just to waste em on foo foos. Everytime one of these acct sellers are sold out im thinking its cuz of guys like u..

Now we can't completely assume what he's selling and bash him... but OP please be aware if you DO plan on selling the items we listed then expect your account to be wasted.

Good to hear, stick with non-vero items (low risk items) to start off then when you have some solid feedback, you can move into your other items.

Default Re: eBay question: What categories are best to avoid when I start selling again?

I am curious also. Are there any categories to avoid? I have a couple of brand new fitbits, but I am holding off because of their high dollar value (over $200).
I have recently purchased a 1000/25000 account which will reach 30 days next week. I have listed only four items, a book, and three health and beauty items all under $10.
Am I being overly cautious?
Thank you

Just stay away from Electronics, and other High Risk Items, also stay away from large value items.
