Ebay, Same Rules?

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Does ebay and it's sellers have to abide by the same rules as everyone else?

 

I see numerous instances of products being shown with free shipping, and low prices, where as they actually are US sellers with different prices and £7+ shipping.

 

I don't mind fair competition, but a paid service where one big competitor is allowed to feed false information seems a bit much.

Hi Dave,

Yes, eBay, although a marketplace seller, does need to abide by the same
policy as all other individual sellers as well as markeplace policies, when
using Google Shopping.

You can report violations directly to Google if you wish to do so, ( https://support.google.com/merchants/contact/policy?hl=en-GB&cfnti=lang.report_policy_vio_aw&cft=3 )
unfortunately, although Google do run a tight ship on violations, some do
slip through the net on occasion, these are usually rectified, once spotted
or if attention is drawn.
