Important news and updates
Service standard policy — bad buyer experience rate
eBay is committed to provide a trusted marketplace and a world-class customer experience. eBay therefore requires that sellers place great importance on buyers' experience and work hard on product and service quality control to reduce the bad buyer experience rate.
The German EEE Act (ElektroG)
When you sell items to buyers in Germany, you must follow the requirements of the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). eBay business sellers are obliged to be compliant with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive), which was implemented in Germany via the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG).
DAC7 — Sales reporting obligations
The EU Directive known as DAC7, implemented in Germany by the Platforms Tax transparency Act (PStTG), requires action by eBay and its EU-resident sellers. eBay is legally required to report transaction data of its users to tax authorities under certain circumstances.

What sellers are saying about eBay
“We chose eBay as our strategic partner not only because it's the biggest Internet auction platform in the world but also because it has a well-designed and dynamic review system that allows clients to assess sellers upon objective criteria which cannot be falsified.”
Deimante Sejonaite, POPPRI Fashion Auctions, Lithuania
“PLC Suministro started in 2018, by 2021 we joined the eBay platform, and so far, I have tripled the initial investment. Exports are a major part of my business, as it allows me to go global. Without the platform, my products could only be distributed in Mexico.”
Miguel de Luna Márquez, PLC Suministro, Mexico
“What we like best about selling with eBay is the interaction that you get with the customers directly and the easiness of eBay. eBay is a very convenient channel of larger export sales. You reach the international community instantly, and it’s a complete in-house solution from inventory management to marketing and shipping, it’s all there.”
