Arrow New Account After Suspension -- Sell Gift Card?

I was suspended 6 months ago from eBay. Got a new account using the Stealth suggestions.

I got a gift card for a restaurant I will never use. I tried places like CardPool to sell it and they don't even take it. The gift card is for $50 and I saw on ebay and recently as this month one sold for $46.

Is it risky for me, with a brand new account, to sell a gift card? I only have one I want to get rid of and eBay seems like the place I will make the most money.

I have read that with a new account, you should sell simple items like a book. I am just wondering if a gift card is a bad idea or not.

Thank you so much!

Yes it will be very risky to sell that item if it is your first item listed.
Unless your account is established as a seller already - don't bother.

Unfortunately that is very risky... just about everything is risky... even if you drop your phone in water and want to sell it I is considered risky.

Very risky to sell GC as your first item indeed!

It's up there where you sell Brand new iphones on new accounts

OP, need to establish your account with activity before listing this - gift card should be one of the first sales, too risky
