eBay updates its policies on PS3, Wii pre-order listings

eBay has instituted a new policy when it comes to Sony PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii pre-order auction listings.  After cleaning up the site of PS3 pre-order listings, the company has instituted even more strict guidelines that could put a damper on sellers looking to rake in the big bucks selling the consoles and should help protect buyers in the process.

In a posting on the eBay "General Announcements" board, the following restrictions/policy updates have been put into play regarding PS3 and Wii pre-order auctions:

  • Only one of each console can be listed per eBay account prior to the launch of the console (PS3 is expected to be available on 11/17/06, Wii on 11/19/06).
  • The seller must only accept payment through PayPal, and have at least 50 feedback with a 98% or greater positive rating so that they qualify for PayPal Buyer Protection.
  • The pre-sale item must be listed in the 3, 5, 7 or 10-day formats, and cannot use Buy It Now.
  • The listing must include a photo of your pre-order receipt in the description.

The new policy should make buyers feel a little bit better when bidding on a PS3 or Wii auctions in the coming weeks, but eBay is a big place and rogue listings are still sure to pop up from time to time.
