Catalogue 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 catalogues from which buyers may directly order are not permitted.

Old and collectible catalogues (from which you can no longer place an order) are permissible. However, the title or description may not contain extensive lists of specific items included in the catalogue. Sellers wishing to list these catalogs should review the �Additional Information' section below and adhere to its policies.

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

  • Loss of PowerSeller status

  • "Current Spring Collection Catalogue, Buy It Now (BIN) for Rs.50" is a violation because it is a current catalogue from which a buyer may directly order.

  • "Catalogue from 1939 Collection" is permitted because it is an old or collectible catalogue where items can no longer be ordered, and the listing does not contain an extensive list of brand names, items, categories, or prices.

Requirements for selling catalogues
Old and collectible catalogue listings must abide by the following guidelines:

  • The seller of old and collectible catalogues may not benefit from any subsequent sales from 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, Handbags for Rs.300). Any additional information or categories sellers wish to provide should be provided through a "further information" link allowed on all listings. Before adding a "further information" link to your item listings page, please review the eBay links policy. Old and collectible catalogues may not be combined as a bonus item with any other listing.

Listings that offer catalogues 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.
