Compilation and Informational Media

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 that include compilations or informational content on any media must:

  • Not contain any cross category information

  • Only be listed in the Everything Else > Other category

  • Not be combined as a bonus item with any other listing

  • Not contain any specific brand names or keywords unless the listing is offering the item in question

  • Not contain excessive use of keywords to describe the contents of the compilation or informational media

  • Not offer information on how to either purchase specific items or receive them for free, outside of eBay

  • Not provide listings of URLs that offer buyers the opportunity to purchase items outside of eBay.

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

  • Listing cancellation

  • Limits on account privileges

  • Account suspension

  • Forfeit of eBay fees on cancelled listings

A listing that contains multiple recipes may not also contain or describe wholesale sources, screen savers, game hints, and so forth.

The lists of keywords which appear in these compilation and informational item listings result in a poor shopping and finding experience for buyers as it may return items for review in which the buyer has no interest. This form of keyword spamming also results in an un-level playing field for sellers who do not keyword spam and may receive fewer potential buyers.
