eBay bans sales of spells, curses, magic services and Psychic readings Friday, 17th August 2012
From 30 August any aspiring magicians looking to increase sales through ecommerce will have to take their talents elsewhere following a policy update from eBay.
Sales of “advice, spells, curses, hexing, conjuring, magic services, prayers, blessings:Psychic, Tarot, Reiki, and other metaphysical readings & services; magic potions [and] healing sessions” will all be forbidden, after customer feedback alerted eBay to the fact that many supernatural claims "often result in issues that can be difficult to resolve".
The announcement comes as eBay looks to improve its reputation as an online marketplace, placing more restrictions on the types of items sellers can auction.
