Going, going, gone…
Online auction house eBay is removing all psychic readings, healings and related services from their site. The reasoning? Issues between buyers and sellers of such services can be difficult to resolve. So in essence, anything metaphysical has now been banned from the site, although apparently there are “tangible” exceptions.
Direct from the horses mouth:
Below is the current list of the categories to be permanently removed eBay.
Everything Else: Metaphysical: Psychic, Paranormal > Readings
Everything Else: Metaphysical: Psychic, Paranormal > Spells, Potions
Everything Else: Metaphysical: Tarot Readings
What items will be prohibited?
Items that will be prohibited include: advice; spells; curses; hexing; conjuring; magic services; prayers; blessings; Psychic, Tarot, Reiki, and other metaphysical readings & services; magic potions; healing sessions.
Why are these categories being discontinued?
Transactions in these categories often result in issues between the buyer and seller that are difficult to resolve. To help build confidence in the marketplace for both buyers and sellers, eBay is discontinuing these categories and including the items on the list of prohibited items.
What can you do?
A online petition has been launched protesting the action taken by eBay and as at the time of writing has received 2315 signatures. It also has a wide range of information, sample letters, contacts and more on how you can assist in the fight.
