Regulated and Restricted Items - Overview
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.
Before you list your item, you need to find out if your item is allowed on eBay and if the type of item is subject to certain restrictions to avoid potential issues with your listing. As an eBay seller, you are ultimately responsible for making sure that selling an item is legal in the eyes of the law. Read the Embargoed Goods and Prohibited Countries Policy to gain a better insight on complying with all governmental rules and regulations.
Violations of these policies may result in a range of actions, including:
When policy violations occur, eBay emails the seller, as well as bidders, that a listing has been ended. You may contact eBay to report violations by using the “Report” or “Contact Us” links found on most policy pages.
