Scalpers seem to be everywhere on eBay and yet they still exist. I want to know why (and how) these people manage to remain on eBay. Why doesn’t eBay stop them?
eBay Just DESTROYED Scalpers
Why doesn’t eBay stop scalpers?
- It’s not as though eBay is unaware that they’re being used to sell significantly marked-up items by scalpers – they know it, and they’ve done their due diligence in an attempt to stop it.
- They’ve banned users and closed the accounts of those who violate their rules.
- If you see any of these violations, report them immediately to eBay and they will take the necessary action.

It is illegal to overprice items on eBay
It is definitely illegal to overprice items on eBay. When you are selling on eBay, you need to provide fair market prices for the items that you are selling.
