eBay Bans Sale Of Magic Spells, Potions And Other Witchcraft

Posted: Updated:

Curses! eBay has banned magic spells and potions.

A small paragraph in the new eBay 2012 Fall Seller Update (h/t Tecca) is proving to be a big bummer for purveyors of the occult -- and for other believers. As of Aug. 30, eBay wrote on its site, the following merchandise is prohibited: "spells; curses; hexing; conjuring; magic; prayers; blessing services; magic potions; healing sessions."

Ebay also banned "advice."

Might we advise the aggrieved to push a voodoo pin in a sensitive area of the auction site?

It wasn't clear whether books such as the "Wicca Witch Alchemist Book of Shadows Spells Rituals Magick (sic) Potions Oils" were subject to the ban. But just in case, the last time we checked it was available for $166.50.

Ditto for the $3,000 rock that allegedly has an "apparition" image of the Virgin of Guadalupe on it.

"Miracles will still be permitted," wrote "Fine.Books" on an eBay discussion board.

Below are fictional products that have become real:
