Fee Circumvention

General Overview of the Policy

Any systems or techniques to avoid or circumvent eBay fees are considered fee circumvention. Fee Circumvention is not allowed on eBay.

Listings that circumvent (avoid) fees can create a poor buying experience and an un-level playing field by putting sellers who pay all their eBay fees at a disadvantage. This makes it harder for all members to sell items. Furthermore, these listings undermine trust in the eBay Marketplace.

Violations of this policy can result in a range of actions, including:

  • Listing cancellation
  • Forfeit of eBay fees on cancelled listings
  • Limits on account privileges
  • Loss of PowerSeller status
  • Account suspension
