Managed payments restricted items policy

Certain items are not allowed to be listed by sellers participating in managed payments, even though those items may be allowed on eBay.

All sellers must follow the guidelines in eBay's Prohibited and restricted items policy. Sellers who are participating in managed payments have some additional restrictions on what they can list.

What is the policy?

Sellers enrolled in managed payments are not allowed to list the following items:

  • Items containing nudity
  • Alcohol, beer, spirits, and wine
  • Gift cards, coupons, and vouchers
  • Lodging, timeshares, vacation packages, and car rentals
  • Tickets for travel, events or experiences
  • Virtual currency

Listings that don't follow these rules may be removed from the site or from search results. Other actions we may take include lowering a seller's rating, charging additional fees, limiting buying and selling privileges, or suspending an account.

Why does eBay have this policy?

When eBay manages the end-to-end payments experience, there are additional restrictions on what items can be sold. We are working to expand the types of items allowed by sellers in managed payments, and ensure we are compliant to support them in the future.
