Prohibited And Restricted Items Policy

Prohibited And Restricted Items Policy

18th June, 2016.


Before a seller lists an item, the seller needs to find out if the item is allowed on the Website and if the type of item is subject to certain restrictions to avoid potential issues with seller listing. As a seller, you are ultimately responsible for making sure that selling an item is legal under applicable law.

Violations of this policy may result in a range of actions, including:

-- listing cancellation;

-- limits on account privileges;

-- account suspension; and

-- loss of special status

When policy violations occur, IDprop may email the seller as well as the buyer that a listing has been ended. You may contact IDprop to report violations by sending an email to


Rules on Prohibited and Restricted Items

Policies about listing items are generally guided by the applicable law in force. However, many restrictions may involve the sale of dangerous or sensitive items and are not necessarily prohibited by law. The limitations are a result of the input by numerous stakeholders, including the community. Just because a particular type of item is listed below, it does not mean that it is completely prohibited. It is also important to respect third-party intellectual property rights and sellers must have legal rights to sell products they list.
