What?! i didn't know ebay.com didn't allow used cloth diapers. no *WONDER* i keep coming up short in my searches. Obviously ebay.de allows it (which i have used alot) but theres usually only fitteds, not AIOs, so i've been trying to find FBs on Ebay.com and never finding any.

I learn something new everyday.

It is new, in the past week or so. People have been getting thier auctions pulled because eBay is saying used cloth dipes fall under used underwear and aren't allowed.

I recently sold a bunch of used dipes on ebay. I didn't have any problem...I didn't put used in the title but definitely included it in the description. Is the closing down of auctions a random thing?

Apparently the way they are enforcing it is manually removing auctions, sometimes right before or after they close. Some of them "slip through the cracks."

Almost 800 signatures so far in way under 24 hours. Way to go cd supporters and great comments by signers, too, Great to read if you've ever felt "alone" in your diapering or parenting decisions.

When did this happen? I bought some used diapers on there about 6 months ago. I was planning on selling some on there when I am done with them. Shoot. Why would they ban it? I'm off to sign.

I've had my cloth diapers pulled. Here's part of email from ebay as to why:

Your listing was removed because eBay prohibits listings for used diapers, used training pants, or used children's underwear. This prohibition falls under a larger, general prohibition against listing used underwear.

I understand that the notice you received indicated that this is a violation of the eBay Mature Audiences policy. This is because the used underwear policy is part of the eBay's Mature Audiences policy. This does not indicate that eBay regarded your listing as an adult item and I apologize for the insinuation that you were. Thank you for your hopeful understanding on this matter.

For more information on our Mature Audiences policy, please visit:

I think I was one of the first people's cloth diapers pulled. I know I was the first to complain on Hyena Cart and a couple of other forums. I didn't put down much about them just that they were used cloth diapers and the brand name. I'm still ticked off.

could you give me an idea of the date yours were pulled? I'd like to see how much scratching used listings has effected overall sales?listings in cloth diapers.. Lots to me right now listings are down by a half. Thanks

Mine were pulled on Feb 15th. Almost 2 weeks ago. They had been up for about 4 days. I haven't posted anymore since then. In my email it said that they would pull my account if I tried to repost them. I've seen others doing it though. I had 5 different auctions pulled.

One was a fb. the others were wahm dipes. Mine wasn't a large lot it was individual diapers. I had been trying to buy prefolds and some wahm dipes that had never been worn just washed and those were pulled too. I have a baby due in June and I'm trying to find deals on diapers but I won't use ebay to buy again. Those wahm diapers I put a bid on were beautiful. She sells through HC and they were going for a cheap price. I'm really bummed and not very happy. The prefolds was pulled 3 hours before the auction was too end. It's a bunch of poo.
