Oh oh! If you buy coupons on Ebay it’s going to get a whole lot harder to do so! Ebay just sent out this email to sellers who have sold coupons:
We’re writing to let you know that as of today, updates to Ebay’s manufacturer’s coupon policy take effect and may impact your listings.
•Sellers can only sell up to a maximum of $100 value in coupons or 25 valid, unexpired, original coupons per month, whichever limit is reached first. (The 25 coupons limit includes multiple coupons purchased from a multi-quantity listing.)
•Coupons for “free” products-including coupons where the coupon holder buys some quantity of items at one price and gets some number of items for free, for example, “buy-get-one-free” offers, or offers for free shipping-may no longer be sold on eBay.
•Starting September 1, 2013, listings for these coupons that don’t comply with these policy changes will be removed. After September 1, listings in violation of this policy may be subject to a range of other actions, including restrictions of buying and selling privileges and a suspension of your account.
I’m personally excited to see them banning the sale of “FREE” coupons, there was so many fraudulent coupons making their rounds on Ebay! I’d love to hear what you have to say…leave a comment….
Thanks Ashlyn & Jessica!
