Please note items can not be offered for sale on this forum.
they said they would contact within 24-48 hours says alot about them
i recently had two bottles taken off ebay as a bottle of whisky bottled in 2007 and 2005 both over twenty years old is not collectable after my conversation with ebay my findings are they ignorant and hard work do as i say not what i do
i have to agree with other people on here ebay is a waste of time at this moment
to the representative he told me they wernt colletable they had been previously taken off for offering europeing postage my mistake
so i sorted it out six days later they were taken off again first preson said i couldnt tell anyone any imformation about the bottle second it wasnt collectable whos taken the mickey
The small print in the description reads :-
HIGHLY COLLECTABLE PRESENTATION BOX AS A COLLECTABLE ONLY. INSIDE THE BOX IS A CONTAINER WHICH IS FULL AND SEALED
Is this a way round it??
It said in the description the bottle was empty. I have relisted and copy and pasted disclaimer into the listing of which most doesn't apply to an empty bottle !!! Will see what happens this time x
I don't understand.
You say that your whisky was bottled in 2007 and 2005. That makes them (the bottles) 6 and 8 years old respectively. In eBay's eyes that does not comply with their rule that the bottle should be over 20 years old. It doesn't matter how old the contents are, the bottle has to have been last for sale over 20 years ago.
That's my understanding anyway.
i hope this helps scottie it wasnt as clear as i wanted it to be
so both over 20 years old unlike many on ebay and both hadnt been seen for a few years
so to ebay there not collectable ???
Indeed the CONTENTS are over 20 years old but that doesn't count.
Frustrating, but that's their new rules.
Still loads of readily available non-20 years old stuff on though.
as the bottles werent taken off for not being twenty years old on ebay one for offering postage outside of the uk the second for mentioning a discription of the bottle
can you believe it must admit both reps from ebay were not sure this was correct says it all
i think ebay need to clarify the situation as a lot of people agree with me and a lot agree with you
they seem to change the rules about once a week
and not apply them to some sellers
Please be informed that due to increasing circumvention of international laws governing sale of alcohol and related items, eBay Policy and Legal teams have decided to put blanket ban on sale of containers containing alcohol, regardless of its purpose of consumption or collectible items. Furthermore, this ban will be effective from February 14, 2013. Therefore, we request all eBay members to abide by the laws and not list alcohol and related items on the site from February 14, 2013. I hope our policy is clear to you and in addition to that, empty bottles of alcohol are permitted on the site; however, list images and description must make it evident.
as when i asked the same question i never recieved a answer shame on you eaby
i was told i would recieve a reply says it all
scottie you have to contact mctears bonhams or christies as well as there are many new people setting up selling whisky
take your pick and see what happens
ebay just seem to flex there muscles on the smaller sellers and trying to talk to some ebay reps they seem to be not interested
i know i used to buy all my tools and bits and pieces on ebay something i wont be doing in the future
i was allways told to treat people the way you would expect to be treated yourself not as ebay treat you
the first time you will recieve a warning
the second you can or will be fined a thousand pounds
so you have been warned
just happened to a friend of mine just got the warning
you can find this info at royal mail
but as teucther said at the moment it only affects inter national at this moment
becareful as some bottles have been emptied of there contents by custom abroad
we shall have to wait and see what happens
but they dont seem to doing anything about it a bit of a joke do as i say not as i do
we will have to wait and see what happens
when trying to relist a item as soon as you enter whisky it wont let you

Ya that was the information I was also given at my local post office a few weeks ago. I don’t know if this will apply to business users or just to Jo public but whichever way you look at it the post office are shooting themselves in the foot.
A great opportunity for the other courier services, think I may set something up myself.
Looks like auction rooms will soon be the only place to buy and sell whisky.
Good news for McTears, Bonhams etc.
i know what you mean scottie why should buisness be different from us sellers or buyers as it affects both
"- The value of the listed item is in the collectible container, not its contents.
- The container has not been opened, and any incidental contents are not intended for consumption.
- The item is not available at any retail outlet, and the container has a value that substantially exceeds the current retail price of the alcohol in the container.
- As the seller, you will take steps to ensure that the buyer of the collectible container is of lawful age in the buyer and seller's jurisdiction and you are in compliance with any and all applicable laws and shipping regulations in carrying out the transaction."
This page is acting goofy for me all of a sudden and I'm unable to go back and read the rest of this all, but I did get that part copied. I'm new here, and don't mean to rehash what has already been said, but is this a workaround? While it isn't whiskey, I am currently looking at a listing for a limited edition Romero Britto bottle of Absolut (a least favorite of mine) vodka (which I don't *believe* is available in stores) with that exact same quoted material in the listing.
What are your thoughts? Again, I'm sorry this isn't currently loading for me, as I'm sure you've all answered this by now...
ebay cant seem to sort any thing out a poor show by them
that is ebay uk and ebay usa have stopped seling alcahol
saying that its very patchy a lot of people say they are complying with all ebay rules and dont realise they are not as ebay cant organise a pissup in a brewery to say the least
I might try this anyway, because I really have no desire for these bottles of crappy vodka with neat bottles.
the word going around is ebay germany will be stopping alcahol some time soon but as we know ebay dont tell any one what is going on so i could happen tomorrow or six months down the line

people must be bothered as they are replying to this forum something you must have missed
most people are fed up with the treatment by ebay
some maybe its hit there bottom line
you say about other options with the post office soon to be stopping the posting of alcahol in the uk privatel posting not shops im not sure what is going to happen
to all those people that hoover up the latest bottles
