good reputation ebayYour seller reputation matters very much when it comes to trading on eBay. If you want to be a successful seller on eBay the first thing you should worry about is your reputation. Place your financial income on the second order and your rating must be in the first place. Good, honest, respectable reputation will build you a profitable business in long terms. In the beginning of your trade on eBay, you will face several limitations from PayPal. PayPal account limitations are not the only factor you should worry about because eBay won’t let you list and sell more items until you have good ratings and trustful reputation as a seller.  

Check out my tips to promptly build a respectable reputation on eBay:


I suggest you list low-priced items because they are sold well and you will sell them in a short time. More products you sell more positive feedbacks you will receive. As soon as you receive enough positive feedbacks your good reputation will be build. I think it is quite clear why I recommend you to list cheap things in the start. In the launch eBay will set particular limitations on your selling abilities  and if you list items which cost 50 dollars or more you will be able to sell only 5 or four such items. Thus you will need to wait until you are able to sell more in the next month. As you see the best way to build a good reputation in a short time is to sell inexpensive products.


Drop shipping may be very good option for those who don’t want to invest their funds in the trade business. Some people think that drop shipping is an ideal way to trade when you haven’t got anything to sell. If you have no other options you may use drop shipping to make some income. In this article, I am talking about building a good reputation on eBay. So let us analyze whether drop shipping is good or bad for building a good reputation. If you use a trustful drop shipping company which has several years of experience and it is worldwide known as a trustworthy company then you have no reasons to worry. With such respectful company, you are sure that the quality of the items you sell is fine.  If you use a new drop shipping company or a company that has a bad reputation you must consider about your current situation.  Bad drop shipping company may ruin your seller reputation. Sometimes items may not arrive at your buyers on time or they may be damaged due to your drop shipping partner. Therefore you must be very careful while choosing or using a drop shipping company.


After a buyer made a transaction write him a personal message and thank him for the purchase, explain him details regarding shipping and do not forget to leave him a good feedback. Your communication with your sellers is a key method to build a good and respectful reputation. 

If you follow the above-mentioned recommendations you will definitely build yourself a good reputation on eBay. Thus your online business will develop and prosper.
