Listing things in the wrong category
February 4, 2009 10:13pm CST
on eBay on purpose. Have you ever listed something in the wrong category on eBay on purpose? I sell my toffee pretty well on eBay and my brother suggested I list it in the wrong category like jewelry on purpose to hopefully get a few more sales. What do you think? Have you ever listed something wrong on purpose?

hm... haven't really tried selling in the wrong category yet.... i just started to sell there this month. i use the same username here for my store there in ebay. So maybe i'll comment some more when i'm a regular ebay seller. I don't really know if it's good for sales if you put an item in the wrong category...

I would think that you shouldn't be even slightly dishonest. Consider, will someone think you are a trustworthy person if the come to believe you are intentionally miss-listing your product? If you want to reach other eyes with such a tactic, perhaps you could go to some garage sales or salvation army and get some jewelry like item which you could list for sale. You might then see your product showing up for the new potential customer as something else that you sell. (I don't do much ebaying, but I seem to recall seeing "other items for sale by this seller" when I've browsed it before.)
