Knowing the rules
Before listing your items, take a few minutes to learn about eBay rules and policies. Knowing what you can and can't do on eBay can pay off in the long run.
Doing the legwork
Sellers are responsible for making sure their items are authentic. Keep in mind that we're unable to authenticate your items so you have to be able to stand behind your products and all the information you provide in your listings, including pictures.
Where did my listing go?
For a safer and enjoyable shopping experience, we take careful consideration in reviewing listings and if we have reason to believe that something is amiss, we take action. This means that sometimes listing removals do occur.
Any action by eBay depends on a number of factors, including item descriptions, Feedback, previous item removals, selling history, current selling activity, and overall site activity. So be sure that your listings comply with eBay policies and follow the selling tips above.
Is relisting an option?
Sometimes an item that was removed just needs a correction to the listing – for example, giving more information in the description or replacing a picture. If that's the case, and there's no problem with the item itself, we encourage you to take the necessary steps to fix the issue and relist your item.
However, if the listing was removed because the item isn't allowed on eBay or the listing goes against our policies or user agreement, you can't list the item again.
