ebay-stops-selling-coupons If you buy or sell coupons on Ebay, starting today it just got a whole lot harder to do so! Here’s the email that they are sending out to sellers who have sold coupons:

We’re writing to let you know that as of today, updates to Ebay’s manufacturer’s coupon policy take effect and may impact your listings.

•Sellers can only sell up to a maximum of $100 value in coupons or 25 valid, unexpired, original coupons per month, whichever limit is reached first. (The 25 coupons limit includes multiple coupons purchased from a multi-quantity listing.)

•Coupons for “free” products-including coupons where the coupon holder buys some quantity of items at one price and gets some number of items for free, for example, “buy-get-one-free” offers, or offers for free shipping-may no longer be sold on eBay.

•Starting September 1, 2013, listings for these coupons that don’t comply with these policy changes will be removed. After September 1, listings in violation of this policy may be subject to a range of other actions, including restrictions of buying and selling privileges and a suspension of your account.

Personally, I feel it’s pretty bittersweet. I do use Ebay as a source for coupons that are hard to find in my area. But I also see that there are so many people abusing this platform by selling fraudulent coupons. So I see it as a good thing that they are cracking down.

What are your thoughts on this? Have you ever bought coupons on ebay? Will this affect how you shop?

    I don’t buy coupons on ebay. I wouldn’t trust that the coupons are valid that I was paying for. I think ebay has it right with these new rules. Limits have to be set because of the high frequency of fraud. Couponing should be honest and not a source of income for the masses. In my opinion.

    It’s been hit and miss with Ebay. Sometime they will ship right away other times they take their time. I am always afraid I will get a counterfeit coupon from there. I love West Coast Clipping. I have never had an issue with them and they are the only place that connects to their customers. I can text if I have a question or email and I always get a quick response. I live in SC and I get my coupons in just a couple of days. They are a nice, honest well run company. They are the only ones out there that tell you exactly what time they are putting the new coupons up, so I just get on my computer then and order and I’m done. The other sites I had to sort of stalk their sites. And if I left the computer for an hour and I came back, they posted their stuff and I missed out!!! I am glad I found them rather then deal with the disappointment of what’s going on with Ebay….
