eBay bans magic spells, potions, and curses sales from site
London: Online shopping site eBay is set to ban the sales of magic spells, potions, and curses as part of a ‘routine clean-up’.
In a policy update, the firm said that the sales of "advice, spells, curses, hexing, conjuring, magic services, prayers, blessings; Psychic, Tarot, Reiki, and other metaphysical readings & services; magic potions [and] healing sessions" were all forbidden from 30 August.
“It`s important to note that items that have a tangible value for the item itself and may also be used in metaphysical rites and practices (ie jewelry, crystals, incense, candles, and books) are allowed in most cases,” The Telegraph quoted a spokesman for eBay, as saying.
According to the report, eBay said it was "discontinuing a small number of categories within the larger Metaphysical subcategory" based on user feedback that supernatural claims "often result in issues that can be difficult to resolve".
Currently the magical listings include services from "a genuine witch and spell caster of Irish descent", "a white magic healing spell" that claims a 100 per cent success rate and "a black magic marriage to hell curse" to break up couples, the paper said.
eBay is reportedly trying to shake off a reputation as a haven for fraudsters, with recent crackdowns on counterfeit software and designer clothing, the paper added.
