Plants and seeds policy

Plants or seeds prohibited by government or shipping regulations are not allowed.

Most plants and seeds can be listed as long as they're allowed in the location the seller is shipping to, but there are exceptions, including some seeds and noxious weeds. 

What is the policy?

  • Endangered plants are not allowed
  • For all other plants or seeds, sellers should check with the following resource to determine if an item is restricted or prohibited:

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?

To reduce the risk of introducing or spreading pests and diseases, the sale and import of plants and seeds is highly regulated.
