Misleading Titles

Sellers are not permitted to create titles for their listings that do not accurately describe the item for sale.

Violations of this policy may result in a range of actions, including:

  • Listing cancellation

  • Loss of eBay fees

  • Limits placed on account privileges

  • Loss of PowerSeller status

  • Account suspension

  • The title "Louis Vuitton Handbag, Cartier" is inappropriate and not permitted on eBay (even if a Cartier item is included as a bonus gift with purchase of the handbag) because it is unclear as to whether the seller is offering one or two items from the title.

  • If a seller lists an item simply as “Apple iPod”, the seller must be selling an actual Apple iPod – not accessories to an Apple iPod - or items related to or unrelated to an Apple iPod.

eBay has this policy in order to support an efficient shopping experience on eBay for all members by ensuring that listing titles accurately describe the item being listed.
