    Due to the high demand and limited supply of the Apple iPhone, eBay is taking strong measures to protect both buyers and sellers within our community.

    The Apple iPhone will be released in the U.K. on 9th November, 2007. In order to sell an iPhone on eBay.co.uk and eBay.ie, you must comply with the following requirements:

    One-day listings and Three-day listings are not allowed.
    You must offer PayPal as a payment method.
    New sellers cannot list using the Buy It Now (Fixed Price) option.
    We’d like buyers to be aware that the telephone functionality on UK iPhones at launch will only work with a mobile contract from O2.

    We thank you for your understanding and we appreciate your continuing support in helping to keep eBay a great place to buy and sell.

    Regards,

    The eBay Team

    **** "limited supply". Do they really think it is gonna be that big of a success immediately? Seems very unusual that Ebay does something like this.
