There are over 100 million members on eBay- the world’s largest online marketplace. At eBay you are capable of purchasing products in more or less any category that you could possibly envision- and at fantastic prices too. Additionally, you can also sell nearly everything you could ever dream about on eBay. Individuals frequently sell things for very elevated prices that have no real economic value. On the other hand, there are some restrictions on what can be sold and bought on eBay.
EBay does not permit some specific things to be auctioned throughout their site. One kind of thing that cannot be auctioned on the eBay site is services. Basically, the reason for this is that service is not an item. Though various seller’s obviously pay no attention to this rule.
Another type of product eBay does not allow is the sale of any kind of product that is regarded as ‘illegal for sale’ if it was being sold in any other selling arrangement. Satellite descramblers are an example of illegal items that are prohibited also.
Copies of software, CDs, or DVDs or anything that has a copyright cannot be sold on the eBay website. On the other hand, you are able to sell software, a DVD or CD that you purchased legally as long as you aren’t trying to sell a copy that you have made of these items. Replicas are forbidden on eBay. A clone variation is called a replica which is a copy of fashionable products. These items appear indistinguishable against like ones that have designer labels, for instance, shoes, purses, sunglasses or dresses.
EBay also prohibits the sale of products that are governed by the federal or state government. Some examples are firearms and weapons, illegal and prescription drugs, alcoholic drinks and all types of tobacco products. Nonetheless, there are a few exclusions to this ruling. You may sell a product, if it is a collectable, such as a container that has tobacco in it. As long as the container has never been opened, and you express that the substances enclosed are not intended for consumption. When selling these kinds of collectables, there are other provisions that must be dealt with also.
No variety or kind of reptile or animal may be sold on an eBay sale. This comprises of stuffed and mounted animals that were once alive. Also, this ruling may be relevant to things acquired from threatened species such as Ivory. If you are hesitant about a product of this kind, do not try to sell it on eBay.
You are able to sell tickets on eBay, but only for the price you initially paid for them. It is unlawful to sell tickets for a higher price than what you paid for them since this is called ticket scalping and is illegal. Raffle tickets and lottery tickets are as well forbidden on eBay auctions. Once more, if you are hesitant whether your item is acceptable for an eBay sale, do not put it up on the site. Contact eBay directly to get a response, one way or another. It is not worth going against the law!
I hope this gives you an idea of what is and is not allowed on eBay. Always research the eBay website for specific details.
