Hi, I'm not sure if this will help you in your question but I figure I would answer it anyway.
Another idea you can use which works quite effectively, is to list your auction listings on auction sites like ubid.com or sellatonce which receive a fraction of the traffic eBay does.
And then, simply drive traffic to your listings using an automated traffic generator.
I can tell you some of the best, and most widely successful traffic generators are Link hidden: Login to view , Link hidden: Login to view , Link hidden: Login to view and none other than Link hidden: Login to view
Some of them will require you to have no popups or only one popup, so make sure you do not have those in your listing.
But then, you can generate traffic to your auction listings 24/7 around the clock seven days a week.
In fact, if you get very good at this method and start generating alot of traffic you will get instant sales.
Sales will also come from all over the world, so anytime you sell something using the instant traffic method I reccomend that you be smart about it and locate your international dropshippers.
Once you know your product is hot and you have the dropshipper in place, and you know them pretty well, then sell the products.
You will actually start generating much more from just this method and best of all, its nearly totally free. If you don't want to click links to generate traffic, there is some outstounding autosurf programs available at the sites I listed above.
But also, you will get more fraudulent bids and scammers paying for your items. So that is a con to this method. A way to screen bidders is always require payment by a secure service such as Paypal or Link hidden: Login to view
But even that is not foolproof, so you always have to be on the look out and report scams to firstname.lastname@example.org (official bureau agency)
I hope this was helpful or at least gave you a better idea. I'm an intermediate at this so I've had alot of experience, and trust me, you always want to be sure your dropshipper is good and you can screen out scam artists.
One more site I would reccomend is Link hidden: Login to view , and then use a traffic generator. You also want to migrate your feedback so check some of the higher traffic auction sites for the migration option, this helps immensely.
