Hello everyone.

I'm selling on Ebay a few months now and it's hard for a newbie to raise his feedback but i'm working my way slow and steady.
Just purchased my first liquidation of women clothing and can't wait to to sell it for finally some nice profit.
Business are hard and slow for a new seller even with cheap prices of the powersellers.
I would like to know two things :
1. Any tips that help sells better? I have only 60 feedbacks of 100% but it's not 600 or 6000 feedback so people just don't buy...Jimmy and all other powersellers where in the same spot so please tell me what makes it happened eventually that buyers were trusty enough to buy from you with low feedback?
2. Regarding payments, I use paypal and I read all about them here and also they are taking allot of fees from every sell I made.
I wonder, how can I add other paying options? like personal cheque or credit card? do I need to sign somewhere? do I have to pay for that to happen?

Thanks in advance - newbie who just want to live the dream

Yes paypal is a complete joke. They use a service from firstdata international. And they resell these services for a fee of about 1.8% additional.

I would suggest you try checking out first data and see if you can get a merchant account through them that you can associate to your ebay account.. Its much cheaper in the long run. But if you are from israel and trying to sell in the US. You might only be trusted if you use paypal.
