Default Answered: Selling curio/retired items on ebay

While browsing ebay tonight, I saw someone selling an Egyptian TV for $17! I also saw few other auctions, like for the Yin Yang Blossom Plant. The bowling alley for a buy it now of $25. Isn't this against Ebay rules? You obviously have to meet them in the trading room, or friend them to get the item. Just seems crazy to me, and I doubt Ganz would want people profiting off of curio shop items! What do you guys think?

Over the past few months we have seen a rise in the number of members who have been selling and auctioning off online items (such as pet specific items and exclusive items) and even whole Webkinz accounts.

We want to make it very clear that these practices are in direct violation of our User Agreement and are strictly forbidden. Any account used in the selling of online items or listed for sale or auction will be terminated, without notice, at our discretion. We are very serious about stopping this activity.

Note that this includes the practice of claiming that the virtual item sold is "free", while selling something of little value.

Members are free to conduct in-world trades of Webkinz World items as they choose, but for no outside compensation of any kind, financial or otherwise. Trading through KinzPost is not secure though and we do not recommend the practice. We will be adding a secure item-for-item trading feature to Webkinz World in the coming months.

We recognize that many items in Webkinz World are hard to come by and that trading may seem difficult, but we must ask that all members abide by the User Agreement and keep all item exchanges within Webkinz World itself.

Default Re: Selling curio/retired items on ebay

there is this one website (not naming names) that has thousands of online sales for webkinz and they charge like 100$ for the nutcracker and stuff

ebay used to be one of the only clean sites and it is sad to see it go that way

here is the link to the buletin

it is very clear and there is no way you could interpret it differently

This was common on eBay a few years ago, but Ganz and eBay both made a concerted effort to stop it (Ganz would close accounts; eBay would remove reported auctions) and I thought they had succeeded - obviously not.
