Plants and seeds policy
eBay- Plants and seeds policy
You can list most plants and seeds as long as they're allowed in the location to which you want to ship them. There are some seeds, as well as noxious weeds, that you're not allowed to sell on eBay. The guidelines below can help you determine what you can sell.
In addition to reviewing the list of prohibited noxious weeds and seeds, review the state-by-state list of regulated noxious weeds, pests, and quarantined items, and consult with state and local authorities to determine whether the items you're thinking about selling or buying are legal in your state.
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?
To keep pests and diseases out of the United States, the USDA prohibits or restricts the entry of certain plants, cuttings, and seeds from abroad. U.S. buyers are responsible for making sure the items they purchase meet all relevant import requirements.
