eBay have posted via their announcements board that several restrictions will apply to sellers of the new iPhone 5. The launch of the new phone was announced on Wednesday at an event in San Francisco.
Authorised retailers of the iPhone will be able to post unlimited listings, with Top Rated sellers based within the phones and accessories sector able able to post no more than 8 listings per week.
Sellers who meet the minimum requirements for selling (see eBay’s minimum performance standards for more details) can sell up to 4 items per week.
Finally, in the hierachy come the sellers who have confirmed their personal details. These individuals will be able to list one item per week.
eBay reserves the rights to cut the amount of phones sold on a weekly basis by those individuals who are failing to meet performance standards. All iPhones sold must be through PayPal (as the only payment method). This has been put in place by eBay to maintain security and protection of eBay buyers.
