Contracts policy

When you list an item that comes with a contract, you're responsible for following the rules of that contract – eBay isn't a party to it.

That means that we can't review a contract or the terms of one, and we can't take sides in a dispute should one arise.

Contracts policy overview

When you list or sell an item that comes with a contract, you're responsible for following the rules of that contract.

Since eBay isn't a party to these types of contracts, eBay does not advise on contractual issues, review contracts, adjudicate, take sides in any contract disputes, or enforce terms from third parties restricting the resale of an item.

If you have any questions about your legal rights or obligations under a contract or agreement, we suggest that you seek independent legal advice.
