Chance listings policy
eBay does not permit listings that promote giveaways, lotteries or raffles as these promotions are highly regulated and may be illegal under UK (or Irish) law. eBay may run such promotions on the site, and may grant authorisation to its partners or third-party companies to run promotions that comply with applicable laws.
Make sure your listings follow these guidelines. If they don't, some or all of your listings may be removed or may not display in eBay search results. You may be subject to a range of other actions, including listing fees not being refunded and limits of your buying and selling privileges.
What are the guidelines?
eBay urges its sellers and buyers to comply with all governmental laws and regulations. Since lotteries, bonuses, and giveaways are regulated or may cause harm to eBay or its members, sellers may not list them on eBay.
