    ***Listing Policy Clarifications: Apple iPhone 3G Pre-Sales and Post-Launch Sales***

    June 12, 2008 | 04:15PM PST/PT

    The following listing policy clarifications will be implemented effective immediately:
    Apple iPhone 3G Pre-Sales are prohibited. This highly-anticipated device will be in high demand after the US release on July 11th, 2008. Prior to the release of similar high-demand electronics, we saw a high number of well-intentioned sellers unable to meet their pre-sale obligations to buyers due to restricted supply, as well as an increase in fraudulent listings for these items. To prevent similar problems with the iPhone 3G, eBay is prohibiting all pre-sales of this device.

    Criteria for Apple iPhone 3G Post-Launch Sales. In order to continue to ensure protection for our Community after these items are made available by the manufacturer, the following requirements have been put in place for the sale of the iPhone:

    The listing must include a unique photograph of the item or items
    Your User ID must be clearly displayed within the photograph (watermarks will not be accepted).
    To ensure buyer protection, PayPal must be the only accepted form of payment
    Sellers will also be notified of these requirements during the listing process when using the Sell Your Item form.

    GOOD! Seriously, the whole pre-sale thing is dodgy because of the auto-activation requirement.
