Catalogue and URL Sales

If you intend to sell on one or more of eBay's international sites, you will need to accept, and we encourage you to carefully review, the User Agreement, policies, and other requirements of that site. You can continue to reach out to the relevant customer service teams on the respective eBay site of your listing or transaction, as may be applicable to the nature of your query.

Listings of URLs that offer buyers the opportunity to purchase items outside of eBay are prohibited.

Listings of catalogues from which buyers may directly order items are prohibited. In these situations, the seller will typically offer the catalogue for low bid prices and complete sales outside of eBay for items found in the catalogue.

Old and collectable catalogues (e.g., those that you cannot order from any longer) are permissible; however the title or description may not contain extensive lists of specific items included in the catalogue.

Violations of this policy may result in a range of actions, including:

  • Listing or Want It Now post cancellation

  • Forfeit of eBay fees on cancelled listings

  • Limits placed on account privileges

  • Loss of PowerSeller status

  • Account suspension

“Current Spring Catalog, Buy It Now (BIN) for Rs.49” is a violation because it is a current catalog from which a buyer may directly order

“Catalog from 1939” is permitted because it is an old or collectible catalog where items can no longer be ordered, and the listing does not contain an extensive list of brand names, items, categories, or prices

Old and collectable catalogue listings must also abide by the following guidelines:

  • The seller of old and collectable catalogues may not benefit from any subsequent sales from the listed suppliers.

  • No extensive lists of specific brand names, items, categories or prices may be used in the title or description of the item listing (e.g. Sony, Prada, Gucci, Schwinn Bicycle, Handbags for Rs. 1500 , etc.). Any additional information or categories should be provided via the further information link allowed on all listings. Before adding a link off your item listings page, please review the eBay Links Policy

Old and collectable catalogues may not be combined as a bonus item with any other items

Listings that offer catalogs clutter the site making it harder for buyers to find relevant items and harder for sellers to sell actual items. Furthermore, these listings undermine the trust and legitimacy of eBay’s marketplace
