eBay insists that listings and transactions comply with the laws of the countries where both the seller and the buyer reside. Members are responsible for ensuring that their transactions are lawful in both countries. eBay strongly suggests that members educate themselves about the laws of their own country and the countries where they plan to do business.
Violations of this policy may result in a range of actions, including:
Classification of Goods in the Philippines
Philippine Government Web sites:
eBay strongly recommends that members carefully review the Philippine Customs Web site and other sources of information concerning importation of goods into the Philippines and (if necessary) consult with an expert in this field before completing any transactions. The information and links provided below are a starting point so that members can quickly familiarise themselves with some of the regulations in this area.
Items must comply with export laws:
Sellers should make sure that the item they're selling can be lawfully posted outside of the country where they live. The export of certain items may require special licences, or may be banned altogether.
Items must comply with import laws:
eBay urges its sellers and buyers to comply with all governmental laws and regulations, both in the Philippines and abroad. Since the import and export of items are highly regulated by the Philippine government or may cause harm to eBay or its members, members should educate themselves on the laws governing the import and export of items prior to listing those items on eBay.
