Come September, though, you’ll no longer find these quick fixes on eBay. Beginning Aug.30, the online auction site will ban the sale of curses, spells, hexes, magic, prayers, blessing services, magic potions, healing sessions and more.
Perhaps it’s the intangibility of hexes and curses that makes them tough to host. “EBay regularly reviews categories and updates our policies based on customer feedback,” a statement from the company read. “We are discontinuing a small number of categories within the larger metaphysical subcategory, as buyers and sellers have told us that transactions in these categories often result in issues that can be difficult to resolve.”
But the ban on magic potions and curses has some users up in arms. One, writing on the eBay forum, even called the ban discriminatory.
