Report An Item to eBay


Click on image below to see it enlarged


Choose the following options

Report Category:  Prohibited and Restricted Items

Reason for Report:  Other Prohibited or Restricted Items

Detailed Reason:  Event Ticket Resales

Click Continue


You will see the Item number “greyed out”

Click on “Send Report”

You should get the following screen –

Item-has-been-ReportedNOTE:   You will need to print out the 2 screens above if you want to report the listing to the Police.  See next Post “How to Report Ticket Scalping to the Police”.

Use the steps above to report breaches of the Queensland legislation AND other breaches which are breaches of the Ticket Sellers’ term & conditions that Event Tickets must NOT be on-sold or put up for re-sale at prices above their original authorised purchase prices.   They are all “prohibited or restricted items”.

The term that the Tickets must not be SOLD above their original authorised purchase prices surely embraces the attempt to SELL them on eBay and through other means.

If you have reported breaches using some other way of contacting eBay Australia, please post a Comment here to say exactly how you contacted eBay.  Thank you.

UPDATE:  At the time of publishing this Post, STSA found that the above $999 listing had been removed from eBay.
