We take the health and safety of our members very seriously, so when listing allowed food items, make sure to follow our policy.
What is the policy?
The following and similar food items are not allowed:
- Unpasteurised dairy products (except cheese that follows government guidelines)
- Unpasteurised fruit or vegetable juice
- Wild mushroom (except for morel and shitake mushrooms)
- Ackee fruit or seeds
- Expired food
- Government assistance benefits that can be used for food
- Food items that are subject to recall by FSANZ - opens in new window or tab
When listing food items that are allowed, sellers must:
- Ensure food items are properly packaged and stored safely
- Clearly state the expiration date in the item description
- State how perishable items will be delivered, and ensure they are delivered to the buyer before the expiry date
Activity that doesn't follow eBay policy could result in a range of actions including for example: administratively ending or cancelling listings, hiding or demoting all listings from search results, lowering seller rating, buying or selling restrictions, and account suspension. All fees paid or payable in relation to listings or accounts on which we take any action will not be refunded or otherwise credited to your account.
