Compilation and informational items policy
You can sell compilation and informational items on eBay as long as you list them in the Everything Else > Information Products category, using the Classified Ad format.
Make sure your listing follows these guidelines. If it doesn't, it may be removed, and you may be subject to a range of other actions, including restrictions of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.
What are the guidelines?
If your item is sent by email or is downloaded from a website, please also see our digitally delivered goods policy.
Why does eBay have this policy?
We're making sure that compilation and informational items are listed in the appropriate category so buyers know what they're getting. We're also trying to prevent the use of keyword spamming because it causes misleading search results. Keyword spamming is when sellers put unrelated words or details in their listings (such as brand names and pop culture terms) for maximum—but unfair—visibility in search results.
