Site interference policy
We strive to make eBay a safe and trusted marketplace for both buyers and sellers. Interference or attempted interference with the eBay site, site operations, or policies isn't allowed. This includes attempts to purposely circumvent our buying and selling policies, or the way our site functions. These kinds of activities can undermine trust, interfere with searching for items, and negatively affect both buyers and sellers.
Examples of the type of behavior that isn't allowed are in these guidelines, but any attempt to manipulate our site or policies may result in action against your account. In addition to your listing being removed, you may be subject to a range of other actions, including limits of your buying and selling privileges or suspension of your account.
What are the guidelines?
Our listing policies are in place to help give all members a level playing field, and to ensure that a specific seller doesn't have an unfair advantage over competitors.
We have policies in place that prohibit the listing of certain items. Our policies are often based on country and state laws, although in some cases they may also be based on input from our members and our own discretion, especially for dangerous or sensitive items.
Accounts must follow all site policies.
All content, including but not limited to your listings, store pages, My World, and About Me page must abide by all of our policies. You may not change or block any eBay-generated content or pages, and you may only use our site features and processes for their intended purposes.
You may only modify or add content in the following areas:
