    Do you have a specific product that you are looking to sell on eBay? Were you planing on using Paypal? Just know that you don't have to use paypal to sell on ebay even though ebay will make it seem like you do. They do after all own paypal.

    Be aware that there are numerous products that are prohibited and restricted to sell on eBay so you would like to stay away from selling the following:

    artifacts, grave-related items, and Native American arts and crafts

    cell phone (wireless) service contracts
    charity or fundraising listings
    clothing, used
    cosmetics, used
    counterfeit currency and stamps
    credit cards
    currency, selling
    drugs and drug paraphernalia
    drugs, describing drugs or drug-like substances
    electronics equipment examples include cable TV de-scramblers, radar scanners, and traffic signal control devices
    electronic surveillance equipment examples include wiretapping devices and telephone bugging devices
    embargoed goods and prohibited countries examples include items from Cuba
    event tickets
    firearms, weapons, and knives examples include pepper spray, replicas, and stun guns (see also military items)
    food and healthcare items
    gift cards
    government documents, IDs, and licenses

    hazardous materials examples include batteries, fireworks, and refrigerants
    human parts and remains
    importation of goods into the United States examples include CDs that were intended only for distribution in a certain country
    international trading
    items encouraging illegal activity examples include an eBook describing how to create methamphetamine
    lockpicking devices
    lottery tickets
    mailing lists and personal information
    manufacturers' coupons
    medical devices examples include contact lenses, pacemakers, and surgical instruments
    military items (see also firearms, weapons, and knives)
    multi-level marketing, pyramid, and matrix programs
    offensive material examples include ethnically or racially offensive material and Nazi memorabilia
    plants and seeds
    police-related items
    political memorabilia (reproduction)

    Default i don't know about that one.....

    but i think that anybody who is "new" to internet sales will have more than only his hands full on ebay....

    unless you can get your fingers on really cheap merchandise that is high in demand could you stay competitive ?

    that's already a hurdle most sellers can not pass. if you think about drop shipping ....forget it. worst case of business model ever

    but lets say you find a source for goods - buying in China is good ( but there are a whole lot of other problems to be taken into account and need to be thoroughly researched before you just send someone 500 bucks for 10 brand new "authentic" iphones ) to internet sales and maybe try ebay ?

    spend at least 6 month of your free time to do proper research and then think about it again. it most likely will save you a lot of money and headache.

    you may wanna try to do some real low level sales to get a feel for it. look in your house for stuff you don't need anymore. do the same at your relatives places. find some used stuff and start selling it.

    don't list all that stuff at one time. take it easy with the listings. you will see that some transactions will run as smooth as a swiss watch and others will turn into a pain in the ass. what do you think will happen if you have like 50 or more transactions a day ? ( if ebay and paypal will ever let you get that far.....)
