Before listing your item, make sure it's allowed on PostOrGet and find out if there are specific rules and conditions on how it should be listed. See the list of prohibited and restricted items below. Sellers also need to make sure that the sale of their item complies with all laws.

Make sure your listing follows these guidelines. If it doesn't, it may be removed, and you may be subject to a range of other actions, including restrictions of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.


Understanding the rules

Here are some basic things to keep in mind when listing your items on PostOrGet:


Our policies are often based on country and state laws, although in some cases, they may also be based on input from our members and our own discretion, especially for dangerous or sensitive items.


Be sure to read our policies before listing items. Follow our guidelines and review our examples so you know beforehand what you can and can't sell on PostOrGet (note that examples are not an exhaustive list).
