E-Bay has given up on policing of "posting in the wrong category!"

The following link shows what consists in the category of "Pre-1900 Antique Liquor Bottles" this afternoon! Take a look at it!
The sellers in Great Britain think nothing of posting every single liquor bottle they find in the trash, in this category!
eBay could care less, as I've written them at least 10 times notifying them of this problem! This problem has been going on for this entire year!
These sellers and there's many of them, actually think someone here in the US or elsewhere is going to pay .99 cents for a bottle that was made yesterday, and then charge over $50 to ship it to you!
I've e-mailed a few sellers and nicely pointed out that they're posting in the wrong category and should use the category of "Post-1900 Liquor Bottles" but nothing happens! They continue to post where they want to!
I don't know how to correct this as eBay could care less!
Phew! I had to get it off my chest! Anyway, here's hoping everyone has a wonderful New Year!

I too have contacted sellers to no avail. But there is a simple solution. Simply add the filter for "item location" to USA.

Greetings,
Where does one find on eBay "item location?" My brain is still locked on the '60s!

There is a clown on ebay that will List 1,000's of Milk Bottles from all around the USA. In his Description he will list every State in the USA so if he has 10 bottles from my state all 2000 of his bottles will show up in my search & I'm suppose to go through all 2000, pages & pages just to find one or 2 from my State. Really Irritating. LEON.

It things like this is the reason I haven’t bothered to even look at eBay in over two years. I found once I stopped looking on there that there is less frustration in my life. It just wasn’t worth my time looking thru all the junk listing to find maybe one over priced item that might fit my collection.

When you bring up a category like "liquor" you will see along the top "condition", "price", "buying format" and "all filters". Click "all filters" then "item location", select "US only" then apply. Filters out all foreign listings.

Thanks for the info! I can't believe all the times I've looked down that column of info, I missed those two words - U S Only!
Looks like 2022 is starting off great!

Ebay categories are strictly for convince. Adherence to any category is not required you may post "late 50's bed pillows" in "modern tools and equipment" if you desire.

After you run a search, you'll have categories on the left-hand side. Fifth one down, after buying format is item location. Click within the US Only circle, and it will only list items here within the states.
