Policy overview

Generally, anyone can sell a Lifestyle Deal on eBay. However, we've created a unique Lifestyles Deals experience on eBay that offers a wide selection of high quality deals from reputable providers. If you want to become a pre-approved seller of Lifestyle Deals on eBay, please send an email to lifestyledealssupport@ebay.com with the subject line: Lifestyle Deals. Please include your contact information.

Pre-approved sellers of Lifestyle Deals are required to use listing services provided by PayPal Media Network and make sure their listings follow our guidelines. They must also include the following information within each item description:

  • Language which specifies the return/refund policy for each deal.

  • Eligibility requirements for redemption of each deal.

  • Language which specifies any contingencies related to the redemption of each deal.

If they don't, the listing may be removed, and they may be subject to a range of other actions, including restrictions of their buying and selling privileges and suspension of their account.
