You're not allowed to sell tobacco products on eBay, including collectible packaging that contains tobacco, because of strict government regulations. For details on what can and can't be listed, see our guidelines.
Our tobacco policy only applies to items sold on the U.S. eBay website (eBay.com). Our international websites may have different rules, so be sure to check each country's website to see what's allowed. Be sure to also follow our international trading policy.
If you're selling an item that's allowed, you can only offer domestic shipping. You're not allowed to ship these items outside the US.
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 restrictions of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.
What are the guidelines?
Because selling tobacco is highly regulated, most tobacco items can't be sold on eBay. Be sure to follow all applicable laws, regulations, and our policies.
