Whether selling or buying, eBay is a popular platform for online shopping. It is a unique online marketplace where both individuals and business can buy or sell good and services to people around the world.
Most people don´t realize that eBay only provides the platform for sellers and buyers to meet. And it gives them a limited space to describe important information about the product.
That´s why many sellers are using acronyms. It´s not easy to understand these abbreviations on eBay, so let us help you.
One of the most asked questions on eBay is: What does EUC mean when selling something?
We want to explain in detail this often used acronym – EUC, which means “excellent used condition.“
What Does EUC Mean on eBay?
What does EUC stand for on eBay? “EUC” means that the item is in excellent used condition.
But be aware that the condition may be subjective!
When someone on eBay is referring to the excellent used condition it usually means that the item has been used once or twice but it is still like new. Another used terms in the clothing category are:
- “GUC” – good used condition, where the product has been used many times, but it has minimal signs of wear.
- “VUC” – very used condition. You found a really used item.

Should I Trust An Item’s Condition?
As we already mention, eBay only provides a platform for sellers and buyers to meet. The seller can list the item as “EUC”, but you should always look closely at photos and read the product description. Our advice is to rely on description because many sellers are using photos of the item in the best possible light, or filters that make the product look less faded than it is in reality.
Another good idea is to look at the seller´s rating on eBay. Just click on the link by their username. Now you can read reviews of other buyers and can say if the seller lied before.
