Stamps policy

Counterfeit stamps can’t be sold on eBay, while collectable and replica stamps must follow our policy.

We want our members to buy with confidence, so we've created a set of guidelines for selling stamps.

What is the policy?

  • Counterfeit stamps and equipment designed to make these items are not allowed
  • Collectable stamps must include a picture of the actual item being sold and specify any alterations or flaws not seen in the photo
  • For replica stamps, the listing’s title, description and photos must clearly state or show that the item is a replica

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.

Visit Seller Help - opens in new window or tab to find details of any policy issues with your account or listings, and get the information you need to quickly resolve them.

Why does eBay have this policy?

This policy helps sellers follow important government regulations.
