Got this email today, I'm a registered business and sell some ebike related 3d printed stuff on ebay.
BIG change in policy there, can't sell ebikes now unless a business seller

I guess the massive rise in ebike theft's means they've decided to crack down on it. Doubt it will do much though as most of the stolen bikes are on facebook marketplace.

There’s two ways of reading that?
- Only businesses can now sell e-bikes on EBay, ie. No private sales.
- Only businesses which fulfils Ebay’s new policy criteria can sell e-bikes, ie not businesses that don’t fullfill the criteria.

Haha you’re entirely right!

I read it in the first way but it makes more sense the second 😂

Of course the linked policy then doesn’t actually even mention e-bikes so not much clearer
