What Is A Listing Violation? 

Any item that violates Discogs policies or infringes on the copyrights of others may be removed. If you see items for sale that meet one or more of the criteria for removal, as listed below, you can report these items. They will be removed from the Marketplace.

If you're a seller and you've had an item removed from the Marketplace due to a listing violation, be sure to check your other listings to ensure they are not in violation. Grading misrepresentation should not be reported as a violation but should be addressed via a support request instead.

If you've had an item removed from the Marketplace, and it's not possible to list it again from the release page, then the release has been blocked from our Marketplace entirely. Please view our separate document on this subject: Offensive Marketplace Item Guide  

The reasons for removal include: 

  1. Not Actual Item

It is against Discogs policy to list items for sale that are not the same as the item represented on the release page (commenting on differences is not acceptable).  

  1. Links To External Site

Linking or referring buyers to external sites from Marketplace pages is not permitted.

  1. Requires Stock Check

All items listed for sale in the Marketplace must be available and in stock.

  1. Not Available At Listed Price

All items listed for sale in the Marketplace must be available for immediate purchase at the listed price. Requiring a minimum order value is not permitted.  

  1. Joke Listing

While we appreciate a good joke, Marketplace listings that are jokes are not permitted. This can include items that are listed for sale at prices far above average sales history prices (without an explanation for that high price). 

  1. Charging Discogs Fee

The selling fee charged to you by Discogs cannot be added as a surcharge to your buyer's order total.

 

How to report a listing violation:

If you wish to report a listing violation, you can find an explanation on how to do so here. Please make sure to only report items that are clearly a violation. If you are in doubt, send us a support request before reporting the item. We'll be happy to advise you!

If you had a listing reported and feel that your item should not have been removed, you should not re-list it. Instead please contact Discogs by using the Support Request Form. Continuing to list an item that has been removed may result in suspension from the Discogs Marketplace.
