In its 2012 Fall Seller Update, the online marketplace said it was banning all sales of supernatural goods and services, exiling its witchy and wizardly clientele to the wilds of Craigslist and other Web-based Diagon Alleys.
Among the prohibited items: “advice; spells; curses; hexing; conjuring; magic services; prayers; blessings; Psychic, Tarot, Reiki, and other metaphysical readings & services; magic potions; healing sessions.”

No word on why they instituted this new policy. But, I wonder if they were tired of the disputed purchases when they failed to work as described.
You still have Craigslist. They even add helpful dislaimers:
“[S]pells, readings & paranormal objects are for entertainment purposes only.”
“You agree that your purchase is subject to your own interpretation & is not a substitute for legal, financial, psychiatric or medical help,” according to the post. “You further agree that we are not responsible or liable for any paranormal activity that will or not occur.”
