I'd like to think that is the case but haven't seen anything official regarding the issue being over. If a mama's used baby diaper auction was pulled a few short days ago I don't see as to how the issue just resolved almost over night.

Yeah, they NARU'ed me a while back because I forgot to pay them a whole dollar in fees, which, go figure, was from listing and selling a used cloth dipe You have to send in all these forms of ID through snail mail to get your account back, heck with that! I no longer plan to sell anything on ebay and started a new account for purchasing. At least that's free.

What is your source for saying issue resolved? Links? There is a thread here that shows how this was resolved in 2004 but this is now and ongoing. Thanks for info if you can.

How is ebay going to get the petition?

I used the live message function on ebay. She said that the sale of used diapers is allowed but under the mature audience category!!!!

Can you tell me what you are basing this on? You're not basing it on the "I come in peace" thread, are you? Because that thread is 3 years old. Thanks in advance for any new info you might have! I would love to find out that the issue really has been resolved!

Huh? Do you mean that an Ebay representative just told you that people will be allowed to sell used diapers in the mature audience category but no where else?

That's what she said. I tried to copy paste the IM, but it wouldn't let me. :

That's so sad! I did a lot of my selling of used diapers on ebay and was glad to give someone else a bargain.
post #77 of 199
So I looked on Ebay's help page and this lists the items not allowed to be sold. There is no mention of diapers at all! http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/used-clothing.html
For those of you that had auctions pulled, did you fight it? Did ebay show you a link that mentioned cloth diapers? I'm so irritated with them right now.

Used clothing (except underwear) may be listed on eBay as long as the clothing has been thoroughly cleaned according to the manufacturer's instructions. Listings that contain inappropriate descriptions will be ended.

Violations of this policy may result in a range of actions, including:

Listing cancellation

Limits on account privileges

Account suspension

Forfeit of eBay fees on cancelled listings

Loss of PowerSeller status

Some Examples Hide

Joe lists his old sweater for sale on eBay. A buyer won the item and Joe sent the sweater to the winning buyer. Unfortunately, Joe did not have the sweater dry-cleaned before he sent it to the winning buyer. In this case, Joe has violated eBay policy.

Henry listed a pair of his used underwear on eBay. Since this is not permitted, Henry has violated eBay policy.

Additional Information Hide

Used underwear including, but not limited to, boxer shorts, panties, briefs and athletic supporters are not permitted.

Why does eBay have this policy? Hide

eBay urges its sellers and buyers to comply with all governmental laws and regulations. Furthermore, due to hygiene concerns, eBay does not permit the sale of used underwear. Since the sale of used underwear or unwashed clothing may cause harm to eBay or its members, sellers may not list them on eBay.

This is not a resolution IMO. I personally would not go venturing off into the adults-only areas of ebay on a quest for dipes for my sweel lil gal. Who on earth know what might be listed in there?!

I horrified that ebay considers this a valid resolution. Bleh!

So, I wrote a letter to ebay complaining and got this response:

Quote:
Thank you for writing eBay in regard to used cloth diapers.

We realize you may disagree, however, eBay feels this is a hygene and
health issue. We understand many items would be clean and sanitary and
may be fit for resale. However, we feel this is not an appropriate venue
for any type of used undergarment, including used cloth diapers. At this
time, we have no plans to change this policy. We regret any
disappointment this may cause.
So, diapers are a "used undergarment," kind of like the ones that college students are selling to pay for tuition? Yeah. Got it. :

I was wondering how the petition website worked....does the author of the petition close it and then send it to eBay? Or does it just stay open and eventually gets sent to eBay? How will we know when this is done, or what the results are? (grapevine I guess )
