Ebay just updated its list of items banned from sale on the site and among partially-used cosmetics and prayers, potions and spells were outlawed.

TECCA.COM reports:
You may think you can buy anything on eBay, and if you're looking for a life-sized bigfoot statue, or an entire European village, the site can certainly cater to your needs.

    Seriously though. If you are stupid enough to buy a potion or spell from anyone, let alone eBay, you DESERVE to be conned.

    Me too. :( It's 13 years late now though. Close to that for you too I see. Hopefully they just keep getting intercepted.

    What utter nonsense!
  • Glitchie 2012/08/17 08:26:07
    Spells could be written, potions, likely because they are a liquid, but you could make instructions for how to make the potion.

    No more potions on eBay?

    Sorry Bayer, PG, HP, publishing companies that produce religious materials and other mass manufacturers of OTC medicinal concoctions, perfumes, colognes, commercial, office chemicals and cleaning potions who make inks, paints, pills, bath, body, and hair products, cleaning products, sauces, cosmetics, vitamins, stews, or any product that combines one or more "potions" to create the product. eBay no longer allows potions to be sold on its site

    Yeah, right.

    Why just sell them on ebay, sell them in novelty shops all over. They may work and they may not; after all, they are buyer beware products sold as novelties.
  • Lisa 2012/08/17 07:31:39
    If people want to be dumb and buy it then that's fine with me. It's their money not mine, who am I to say what they should spend it on?
  • Rock 2012/08/17 07:09:51
    Why give the scam artist another outlet? So no, I hope ebay doesn't start letting folks sell this crap.

    EBay doesn't sell religious jewelry? That's news to me. Probably to EBay, too. AND to the millions of people who buy religious jewelry from EBay.

    About what? Don't people all over the world buy religious jewelry from EBay? What makes you think I'm "mad"?
  • Resp 2012/08/17 06:21:25
    People can throw their money away on all the nonsense they want.

    . . . But only if they work. Otherwise the FTC is gonna be all up in your grille.
  • Vitalani 2012/08/17 05:29:28
    If it does not endanger anyone, break the law, or infringe on the rights of others, people should be able to buy and sell what they wish on Ebay.

    Honestly, buying used cosmetics is more stupid than either of the other things mentioned.
  • Transqu... Vitalani 2012/08/17 05:35:42
    You should try buying out-of-stock or out-of-production OTC meds on eBay sometimes. Goo-googly-moogly that shi'ite is high!
  • Vitalani Transqu... 2012/08/17 05:38:17
    I think I'll stick with the substances I'm prescribed.

    "Honestly, buying used cosmetics is more stupid than either of the other things mentioned."

    Ebay has banned used cosmetics as well.
  • Vitalani No One 2012/08/20 06:00:29
    I don't even see the point you are trying to make. You are just stating the obvious...
  • Chris 2012/08/17 05:11:16 (edited)
    Spell kits should be allowed, such as candles, supplies, etc to perform a spell... That is a legitimate product.

    But not a spell service of sorts whereas someone who says they'll cast a spell for you for $50 or something, that could easily be abused.

    And how exactly would a PayPal payment dispute go about?
    Consumer: "My Spell didn't work"
    Merchant: "I will refund you with loving waves of energy, that's a $100 value!"
  • addie 2012/08/17 05:08:11
    People, in The West, are allowed to go to priests, witch doctors, fortune tellers...ebay has been another route to those people. How is that wrong? They all want money and they are all hokum, but it is our right to believe and follow what we want.

    I remember when Justin Timberlake's french toast was sold on ebay. Nobody's being forced to bid on anything there. If you're looking for something to buy, someone's gonna show up to sell it. That's the free market.
  • Transqu... Eh Poli... 2012/08/17 05:36:46

    The free market in one easy lesson: wherever there's a demand there will be a supply.
  • ~TheDreamer~ 2012/08/17 03:39:11

  • revbh ~TheDre... 2012/08/17 06:45:33
  • Kidasha 2012/08/17 03:33:43
    But why would anyone buy a spell on ebay when they could just as easily look up how to do it online?
  • Flamingolady 2012/08/17 02:59:13
    If someone is so gullible to purchase this crap, then oh, well. I read here on SH once that some absolute idiot was selling her soul. ISYN.
  • rereblue 2012/08/17 02:24:53
    Hey, I'd by a postion or spell, maybe even two (probably not). But hey, it should be, no harm no foul. No harm no fowl

  • Rob 2012/08/17 01:38:12
    Spells and potions embued with magical properties are a myth and do not exist, except in fantasies of the mind. If people really want to throw their money away on something that won't work, let them do it. Some way or another fools will be parted from their money.
  • TheHushedScreamer 2012/08/17 01:30:36
    It's something people would buy.
