I thought eBay had decided to turn a blind eye to people selling used cloth nappies, as the policy not to allow them is clearly ridiculous. But then I've just had a listing removed, a day before it was due to finish. How annoying! I've just gone on the live help chat thing on eBay to register my annoyance at this unreasonable policy. Here are some of the things I said:Vincent Jones
I also understand you feel that your listing was unfairly removed from the site under this policy.
No, I think it was fairly removed under this policy. I just think the policy is nonsense and should be changed. I understand you need to avoid people selling things like used underwear, but lumping used cloth nappies in with that is just silly and unreasonable.
Samuel, please understand that we do not allow used nappies, nappy wrapper/liner for hygiene concerns of community.
What hygiene concerns?
Are you suggesting anyone would ever sell unwashed cloth nappies? Or are you suggesting that washed cloth nappies are not hygienic. If so, I and all the other mums in the country that put washed cloth nappies on their babies every day take offence!
Samuel, I understand that you don't agree with eBay's used clothing policy, but I can assure you that we are committed to the continuous improvement of our website to make it both a fun and safe place to trade.
In your case, you may also send your valuable suggestion to "Sending Suggestions to eBay" page by copying the following link into a new browser window:
So I went on that link and said basically what I said above and that I would like to see this policy changed in the future to allow used nappies to be listed.
I just wanted to put this on here in case anyone wanted to join me and also go on that link and complain as well. If enough of us complain they will change this ridiculous policy eventually.
