Mailing lists and personal information policy
eBay doesn't allow the sale of names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, or other personal information, such as social security numbers or contact information.
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 limits of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.
What are the guidelines?
With a few exceptions, mailing lists and similar types of bulk information aren't allowed on eBay.
Telephone numbers are allowed as part of the sale of a legitimate business, but only if:
The phone number is not a toll-free number
Your listing makes it clear that the phone number is being sold as part of the sale of the business
Bulk email lists, including:
Information on how to obtain bulk email lists
Ezines with opt-in bulk email lists
Instant messenger (IM) information
Internet protocol (IP) information
Leads that may provide possible sales information
Social networking items, including but not limited to:
Social networking profiles or accounts
Invitations to networking sites that aren't yet open to the public
Social networking "likes," "followers," "subscribers," or similar items
Any items associated with social networking accounts that result in or encourage spam or the exchange of personal information
Software or tools designed to send unsolicited email (spam) or harvest email addresses
Software, tools, or services designed to send unsolicited texts or instant messages
Why does eBay have this policy?
eBay is always looking for ways to improve the buying and selling experience. As part of this effort, we don't allow the sale of mailing lists, website traffic-driving services, or personal information.
