  • eBay's latest User Agreement - eBay screening messages more closely for circumvention buying outside eBay

    eBay User Agreement

    Of particular note to us are the changes that eBay has utilized to try to:

    • Make it clearer how eBay addresses attempts to bypass its policy on Offers to buy or sell outside eBay.

    • Scan and block member-to-member messages sent through eBay's platform to prevent fraud or violations of eBay policies.

    Basically eBay is now filtering more closely for certain buzzwords and bits of email addresses that you might utilize try to sneak into communications, as buyers or sellers attempt to complete deals outside of eBay. Yes, eBay is desperate for that 10% commission and doesn't want to let go of it.

    I've had success, as a buyer, with separating the email address into two separate messages, for example sending just the words

    modeeworld at

    in one email

    and then just the word

    gmail

    in the next.

    Or, if you have an email address that consists of your eBay username, send one eBay message that says

    email me at my username at

    and a second eBay message that says simply

    gmail

    You get the idea. But eBay is going to be looking out more closely at these messages, so, beware! and be careful.
