I think this is completely ubsurd.
I think you can try the diaperpin.com.... they have message boards where I believe you can still sell used diapers with others. I've heard of a diaperswappers website too. amitymama.com has message boards where people sell diapers among anything else on their main board. When you have 60 posts plus 2 months of membership (last I knew) here at MDC, you can use the Trading Post Diapers forum. This is off the top of my head, hope that helps! I've been out of the diaper trading scene for a while

eta: That's a lot of fuzzi bunz mama!

I had diapers pulled this week too. I complained and their response was:
Thank you for writing eBay in regards to the listing of similar items and when did our used undergarment policy came into effect.

I understand that you may have seen similar items available on eBay.
Unfortunately, we may not become immediately aware of all listings that violate eBay policies.

We encourage you to review our policy Help pages to learn if your item is allowed on eBay. To review the list of Prohibited, Questionable, and Infringing items, please go to:

http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/item_allowed.html

If you're still unsure about your item or listing, please contact Customer Support. We'd be happy to answer your questions.

With regard to your second concern about when did our used undergarment policy came into effect, used undergarments have not been permitted on the site for at least 4 years, which is how long I have been at eBay.



Thank you for using eBay for your online trading needs.

Wow, over 3200 siggies! That's great!

I couldn't believe it when I saw this thread. I went and signed the petition. I sure hope they let up!

If not, maybe this will open the door for some work at home mom to make a site specifically for the buying and selling of used cloth diapers.

So, if I can't use ebay to buy and sell cloth right now where can I go? I'm about to have a new baby so was looking into getting some newborn cloth....

I just had an auction pulled yesterday for a beautiful Very Baby pocket with Koi embroidery They stated it was for "Mature content" and when I questioned them, they sent me this:

Dear Tara,

Thank you for writing eBay in regard to the removal of your listing,
"Very Baby Pocket Diaper(cloth)."

I carefully reviewed your listing #180090736171 and determined that it
was removed correctly. Currently, 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.

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

http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/...audiences.html

It is my pleasure to assist you. Thank you for choosing eBay.


Regards,


I will be writing them back, but I need to wait for my other auctions to finish first

Take care,
Tara

I don't even cloth diaper and I signed the petition! There's a difference between the letter and the spirit of rules. But it requires actual mental effort to go with the spirit ... :

I'm so glad this post was here - I just had a listing for covers removed today...I had no idea that suddenly our cloth diapers were "adult material" and "used underwear." What is with ebay??!! Anyway, I signed the petition (#3311!) and added the link to my blog.

Keep it up ladies! The more #'s the better. I wish someone with a brain was working at eBay. It is SO SO frustrating.
I'm thinking we'll email eBay with the link to the petition soon, but I'm going to wait for a while yet before printing off a paper copy and mailing it in. (That's what they recommend on petitiononline)
Thanks for your support! I *knew* I wasn't the only one mad at eBay.
Jody

(I'm new here obviously -- in case you are wondering, I am listed as the author of the petition on the website, but to be honest I had a lot of people help with suggestions and editing. It's a collaboration to be sure!)

Covers?! Okay, even if diapers are considered to be underwear (which I don't agree with) how do they justify banning covers? If they ban the sale of used covers they shoud be banning the sale of all used pants.

Not a mama yet, but I will be one day and when I am, I want the option to buy cloth diapers on eBay, used or otherwise. I signed it!

They just pulled one of my auctions again. I'm waiting for them to pull the other 5. I'm going to put them back on but I'm going to use just a 2 day auction.

Me, too. Will do the same . Let them sort it out while we create alternatives for ourselves and the future! Will also keep a list of all bidders and sellers interested and maybe even "contact" them incase auctions pulled and transfer of items can happen in another venue or they too need some alternatives. I love the fluff I got from you on DS by the way! So glad we have alternatives now we just need to get the word out.

I read about this on the CCBoard (children clothing discussions on ebay forums), and am not only saddened, but TICKED! ugh!

I've been trying to have 4 listings up, I get about 1 pulled each night. And relist the next night. I've been putting big warnings on the auctions to let bidders know what is going on with ebay, as well as to encourage them to use the BIN, or just contact me for a BIN, if there have already been bids. I think I'll link this thread if noone minds, because at least one mama has emailed me thinking it's a spoof (like some kind of sick sales tactic for me)

I've also found that emailing all bidders on your auctions helps, just so they have your contact info if/when the listing gets pulled, since it's not accessible once pulled. Something like:
"Hi, you are bidding on the XXX cloth diaper auction of mine. Ebay has recently decided to manually pull cloth diaper listings, saying they are ""adult material... used underwear ... inappropriate to list"". Once they pull an auction, bidders and sellers no longer have any record of the auction or contact info for eachother. So, I am just giving you my email, incase this gets pulled and you are interested in buying these directly from me (through paypal). Let's hope this stays up!
Take care,
Root*children"

Anyhow, just a thought for y'all, since I had one at a bid of $20-ish and it got pulled and I had no idea of who the bidder was

I've had 2 folks take me up on off-ebay BIN's.

I signed. Someone posted this on my CDing group on facebook - the ebay thing is ridiculous!
post #119 of 199
I signed...#3413, I think. I'd love to see more cd mommas using wahmchicks.com for diaper auctions. I think its free to list them too
