Is there any sellers here that have been successful (selling vero) amidst all these recent ebay policy changes, etc.? Just curious. I need some motivation!

Let's hear your TRUE story.

Hope people chime in.

As for me, I haven't dabbled in VeRo - tempted though so we'll see.

I just been selling low key stuff - some of my own creations - lot of feedback, not much profit but whatever. And then when I sell something legit, I get limited ha - good times.

So, my story is FAILURE to date on few accounts - others are MEH at best.

i have sold vero items lately very few and no problems. it all depends on each person just like we know ebay and paypal are unpredictable these days. that's the best motivation i can give you.

I have been doing VERO style items for years.
I have not worked a "real" job for almost 5 years (except for 9 months in 2008)
I have supported my self, wife and daughter on my online sales money.
We have ben to the Caribbean twice on Carnival Cruise Lines.
Vacationed in NYC, Las Vegas and a Southern US Road trip.

Later this month I am ordering a brand new 2011 BMW.

I would say that I have been doing pretty well for selling VERO online.
I do eBay and Amazon.

WOW, HWGA! That is pretty impressive! That has been my goal for awhile now, to do well enough to purchase a nice car, but I would want to pay cash for it.

Do you sell many different kinds of VERO items, or do you just stick to only one or 2 particular items?

My rule is simple. I figure out the minimum I need to earn to support my family. Then, I use two to three accounts to sell legit products for that amount. I never sell any vero through these three accounts, give them great protection, and they are all top-rated sellers. Even though all my other accounts died, I never touched them to sell anything risky. I need them to support my family, so I will not get panic.

Then, all the other accounts I created are used to sell vero products blatantly to make some extra money. They will all die sooner or later, but who cares if my family support is already guaranteed.

My problem is trying to find good quality products that will sell for a good profit margin with happy customers!!! I found a few but I need more to mix things up a little. I don't like having pages and pages full of feedback for the same item, that looks very suspicious to buyers.

True I hear you aking - i only make nickels and dimes - if i want to really make something, I have to go for volume...which is tough when I do other work =(

And as for selling the same item, doesn't really if a. customers are all happy b. you are clean with eBay. Remember: private listing can be your friend from time to time =)
