Activity that doesn’t follow eBay policy could result in a range of actions including administratively ending or cancelling listings, hiding or demoting all listings from search results, lowering a seller's rating, buying or selling restrictions, loss of buyer or seller protections, account suspension, application of fees, and recovery of expenses for policy monitoring and enforcement, for example. All fees paid or payable in relation to listings in which we take any action can't be refunded or otherwise credited.
