Default ANY Penny item with free s/h = eventual suspension?

There doesn't appear to be any way to get around buying or selling digital items for a penny. Ebay will eventually catch you, but I do see physical items which are being sold as giveaways for a penny with free shipping. I assume this is done to get around ebay's feedback manipulation policy but I don't see how the sellers are getting anything out of this. Alot of idiot buyers are going to assume you're really going to send them a ps3 for a penny with free shipping and then you're sunk. I don't understand the strategy behind this but as a buyer can I still get nailed for buying this stuff? I wonder.

There is a lot of risk if you're buying penny items... especially if you're buying several at a time.

Unfortunately I am not aware of any way to get feedback quickly. I think this might be a loophole but I don't know. You're still buying a physical item.

Ballsack the better way is to get feedback cheaply without the risk that you just paid a lot to buy a bunch of items, rented a mailbox for them to be delivered to, and then you start selling and ebay randomly jacks your account up.

I actually discovered that I'm still getting plenty of bids even without any feedback. I just post first bid wins messages in my description. As a matter of fact ppl are actually bidding on multiple items from me which I find kind of weird. You would expect that buyers would be more cautious with someone with zero feedback.

I buy coupons because i hate just buying random crap just for feedback. I bought a $1 coupon for via rail and it saved me 50% on my trip to Montreal over the weekend.
