About Me policy
Use your About Me page to find other members with similar interests or to promote yourself and build trust with potential buyers and sellers.
On an About Me page, eBay doesn't allow members to promote items that aren't allowed on eBay or sales outside of eBay. We also don't allow members to group multiple web addresses (URLs) together so that they all show up in a single search result. Unless otherwise stated, About Me pages have to follow all listing policy guidelines.
Make sure your About Me page follows these guidelines. If it doesn't, it may be removed, and you may be subject to a range of other actions, including limits of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.
What are the guidelines?

Why does eBay have this policy?
