Underage Users

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.

All eBay users must be 18 years of age or older to buy or sell on eBay. If you believe another member is underage, please report this user's ID and include any relevant information. If you have an email from the member, please be sure to include a copy.

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



When eBay members agree to buy or sell items, they are entering into contracts with each other. Throughout most of the world, individuals under the age of 18 are not allowed to enter such contracts. For that reason, eBay does not allow individuals to register as members until they reach the age of 18.
