Gifting in game item from crown store for gold? Bannable or not?

Mohegan_Sneak
Would really like to know where ZOS stands on this. I have heard from word of mouth that it is and isn’t a bannable thing. Just asking for a friend.

    Usually when I see these “Just asking for a friend” threads I have to believe it’s actually you who is planning on gifting crown store items for gold :) But to answer your question ZOS has come out and publically stated that it’s OK to gift items for gold. I myself would frown on any such transaction as it seems that there is too much chance for being scammed.

    Nah it’s actually my friend, Pablo. He is very interested in this. Thank you for the info!

    Show of hands: who thinks Pablo is imaginary, and who thinks he's real and using OP as his patsy? I'll vote for the latter.

    To clarify, trading an in-game item for other in-game items is allowed; trading in-game items for real-world money or other out-of-game items is strictly prohibited.

    But the question is...is a Crown Store item considered an in-game item (since it is found in-game) or a out-of-game since it's purchased with crowns ie real money? That seems to be where all the confusion is.

    A Crown Store item is considered an in-game item.

    Pablo sounds like a shady bloke. He deserves a Crown Lethal Poison.

    It’s allowed and is fairly common, but trade at your own risk since there’s no built in support
