Is the rumor true?

I hear that Ebay no longer accepts used diapers on the list. How could this be? I looked and see that there are a few but no where near like there used to be. I think this is stupid!

Re: Is the rumor true?

yep, what caitlin said.

tons of threads about this, and edfinitely a petition. quite irritating, but i think the complaining about random things being wrong (like the infection thing i think twice) by lots of people have a factor in this, and they didnt want to be held liable, though they lost a TON of money from it!

Re: Is the rumor true?

i read this too, they are considered used underwear So so NOT the same thing!
I have seen the ways to get around it though. One very brilliant person had a roll of flushable liners for sale, as a bonus you got 10 used dipes. Well, of course the auction sold for a good amount, I was very glad to see that.

I am truly, genuinely curious ...

How is it that cloth diapers and underwear are NOT the same thing, in it's most basic form?

people don't crap and pee in their underwear. If i am buying a cloth diaper I know whats gone into it and how to wash it. If ebay wants to ban them well thats fine but just the same they are not underwear, ask my three year old and even he can tell the difference

Nichole,

I completely agree with your take. However if eBay doesn't permit the selling of used underwear (which they have never done) knowing how cloth diapers are used (washed and sanitized or not) then it makes sense that they wouldn't allow the sale of used cloth diapers either (which they never have, but have never enforced until recently).

Thanks for the thoughts. I DO think it sucks that eBay won't allow the sale of used cloth, but I'm glad that avenues such as Diaper Swapper exist for those of us who have no qualms about buying and using used diapers.

Blessings

Re: Is the rumor true?

What about the used baby clothes that are sold on there? If the people are using sposies we all know the clothes have been pooped on. But that's okay!?!

Eh I don't even like ebay all that well anyhow. I'd much rather sell my dipes here (if I had any to sell). I hate all the ebay fees and waiting for the listing to end.
