Wii Preorders - Ebay Announcement

A few days ago Ebay.com announced that they were instituted a new policy for Nintendo Wii & Sony PS3 pre-order auctions.

The new policy is directly aimed at ebay sellers who want to make a fortune by selling multiple Wii’s/PS3’s on Ebay.  In my opinion this is a great announcement.  It stops sellers from buying the Wii is bulk from stockists…

The new policy is also there to stop punters being scammed like a lot did with the XBOX 360…

The restrictions that they have placed on Wii and PS3 preorders are:

  1. Only one of each console can be listed per eBay account prior to the launch of the console
  2. 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
  3. The pre-sale item must be listed in the 3, 5, 7 or 10-day formats, and cannot use Buy It Now
  4. The listing must include a photo of your pre-order receipt in the description

  1. Is this annoucement applicable to US eBay? I ask, because if you search for Wii on UK eBay they’re loads of auctions breaking these rules:

  2. When it was announced at the start of the month it was on the US Ebay.com site. I’d have assumed that ebay.co.uk would have been the same, but as you say this doesn’t seem to be the case!!!
