Plants and seeds policy

Plants or seeds prohibited by government or postage regulations are not allowed.

Most plants and seeds can be listed as long as they're allowed in the location the seller is posting to, but there are exceptions, including some seeds and noxious weeds. 

What is the policy?

  • Endangered plants are not allowed
  • For all other plants or seeds, sellers should check with the following resources to determine if an item is restricted or prohibited:

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.

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?

To reduce the risk of introducing or spreading pests and diseases, the sale and import of plants and seeds is highly regulated.
