* AndNinetyNineCents: Common in Buy It Now listings, but quite obviously averted in auctions themselves.
* {{Auction}}: The whole point of the site.
* NoSwastikas: "eBay does not allow listings or items that promote or glorify hatred, violence or racial intolerance, or items that promote organisations with such views." So, you'll have to sell your old UsefulNotes/WorldWarII memorabilia somewhere else.

* In ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' the aquarium fish list where they came from. For the Starfish, that's eBay. Except that live animals aren't allowed to be sold on eBay.

* AirGuitar: Yes, some really do get sold.



* PerpetualMotionMachine: Yes, these can sometimes be found offered for sale.
* RareVehicles: eBay Motors' most useful feature is that sellers - and potential buyers - of a "unicorn" spec of a common car can put it in front of a national audience/find it in a national pool of vehicles. Ford Focus wagon with sunroof, [[DrivingStick manual]] and leather? Look here first.
* ReadTheFinePrint: Some people like to sell boxes for gadgets with warnings like "PSP box, PSP not included". Despite this, people might still pay hundreds for it.
** Another version is listing something for a cheap price, but charging huge amounts for shipping.
* SeriousBusiness: Seller Ratings. While maintaining a high rating is naturally beneficial for both the seller's reputation and the prospective buyers, some people go absolutely loony over the potential of losing a perfect rating.
** Bidding wars can get rather fierce as well.



* WhatDidIDoLastNight: Can happen if you browse eBay while drunk.
* YoungEntrepreneur: You can make a lot of money by selling.
