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.

Patience

How about this, everybody get some patience and get a damn console when you can and dont complain if you have to wait a few months. Its not like your popularity is going up when u get one, it most likely will go down since u wont be leaving the house for months unless u need to buy more games or maybe some food. I say ppl need to just chill out about the whole ebay thing, you know what, if the seller wants to sell it, thats fine. If the buyer wants to buy, thats fine. Its not like either one of them are getting jacked, you think the buyer is complaining he spent so much money on one, since it was his chooice all along. The only way everybody can get one and at price is if sony made 5 million consoles and released them all at once, then you wouldnt have any problems.
