Can You Really Can Sell Anything on eBay?

It is probably impossible to say for sure, but, a few years back, one source stated that over 100 million people are members of eBay, although that may have changed in the years since them, or even in the time it took to write that sentence.

On eBay, you can find and buy items in just about any category that you could imagine...and some you might never imagine...and some at really great prices too. You can also sell almost anything you can imagine on eBay – people have often sold items that had absolutely no real value for very high prices. Notice the word "almost" in that last sentence.

In fact there is a story that one of the first items sold on Ebay was a broken laser pointer. Supposedly, when the seller contacted the buyer to make sure that he understood the pointer was broken, the buyer responded that he collected broken laser pointers.

While broken and supposedly "useless" things are regularly sold on Ebay, there are some limits, however, to what can be bought and sold on the world's biggest auction site.

eBay's sometimes strict rules will not allow certain items to be auctioned through their website. Services are one type of "item" that cannot be auctioned – simply because it is not really an item and can often only be judged subjectively. Just for an example, what does "clean your house" mean to you? It might not mean the same to me if I sell that service to you.

Some eBay sellers blatantly ignore this however. The sale of certain other items is illegal, whether it is being sold through eBay or in some other manner. eBay restricts the sale of any such item that is considered "illegal for sale" in any other selling format. Other illegal items such as satellite descramblers are forbidden as well.

Copies of anything that has a copyright - such as copies of DVDs, CDs, or software - may not be sold through eBay auctions. You can, however, sell a DVD, CD, or any software that you bought legitimately…as long as you are not just selling a copy that you made of these types of items. eBay also does not allow the sale of "replicas". A replica is a knockoff version of designer items, such as purses, dresses, shoes, or sunglasses that look identical to those that have designer labels.

Items that are regulated by state or federal governments are forbidden on eBay. These items include alcoholic beverages, weapons, firearms, all tobacco products, and both prescription and illegal drugs. There are small exceptions to this rule, however. If you have a collectable, such as a tin that contains tobacco, you may sell that item if the package has never been opened, and you must state the contents of the package are not meant for consumption. There are other conditions that must be met as well when selling these types of collectables.

Any type or breed of animal or reptile may not be sold through an eBay auction. This includes animals that were once living, and are now stuffed and mounted. This rule may also apply to items that are taken from endangered species, such as Ivory. When it comes to these types of items, when in doubt, the rule of thumb is simple - don’t so it.

Tickets may be sold, but it is illegal to sell tickets for a higher price than you originally paid for them. You know what this is. It is called ticket scalping, and it IS illegal. Lottery tickets are also banned from eBay auctions, as well as raffle tickets.

Finally one more time; if you are not sure if your item is eligible for an eBay auction, either don’t put it up for auction, or contact eBay to get an answer one way or the other. Don’t risk breaking the law!

As with many things related to eBay and the law, laws, regulations, and eBays own policies may change at any time so make sure that you personally update your information about what can or cannot be sold on eBay.
