1. Be cautious about large orders. This especially applies to:

a. Multiples of the same item

b. Orders for currently-popular video games

There are some fraudsters who have done this for decades in the off-line world. Build up credit for a "front" business, then order lots of inventory, and then go "bust." Sell the merchandise on the side, while either avoiding bills, or even declaring banckruptcy on the holding corp of the business.

Others will simply steal a credit card, and order a bunch of easily re-sale-able items. If it goes through, those items will be on Ebay next week, and the legit cardholder will be disputing the charge (possibly reversing your commission.)

2. Looking for large orders? Perhaps you should start up a site directed at school teachers, or other organisational buyers. "Your students should have 'XYZ History Book' on their required reading list - get it and hand it out now, as a course requirement." Etc, etc.
