Tobacco and e-cigarettes policy

E-cigarettes and their accessories, or items containing tobacco, are not allowed on eBay.

The sale of tobacco is highly regulated, and may cause harm to eBay members, so we do not allow tobacco products to be listed.

What is the policy?

The following or similar items are not allowed:

  • Cigarettes, cigars, and loose tobacco
  • Herbal cigarettes or herbal tobacco (sometimes called nicotine-free or tobacco-free cigarettes or shisha)
  • Electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) including e-cigarettes, e-liquids and e-cigarette parts
  • Accessories for e-cigarettes

The following are exceptions that can be listed:

  • Collectible/vintage packages
  • Nicotine patches or gum
  • Tobacco seeds

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?

This policy helps sellers follow important government regulations while ensuring that eBay remains a safe marketplace.
