Funeral items policy

Used funeral items are not allowed.

While we recognise that some historical grave markers may be privately held within families and legal to sell, eBay is concerned with vandalism that has occurred in graveyards across the world, and consequently prohibits their sale.

What is the policy?

Used funeral items such as headstones, markers, or urns are not allowed

Sellers can list new funeral items as long as they've never been used, such as:

  • Burial plots
  • Caskets
  • Gravestones
  • Headstones
  • Tombstones
  • Urns

Activity that doesn't follow eBay policy could result in a range of actions including for example: administratively ending or cancelling listings, hiding or demoting all listings from search results, lowering seller rating, buying or selling restrictions, and account suspension. All fees paid or payable in relation to listings or accounts on which we take any action will not be refunded or otherwise credited to your account.

Tip
Visit Seller Help to find details of any policy issues with your account or listings, and get the information you need to quickly resolve them.

 

Why does eBay have this policy?

This policy helps discourage the vandalism of graveyards and ensures our buyers and sellers follow government regulations.
