Everyone always asks for the code to be sent via email--which I do through ebay Messages. I've never had an issue, like I said, but apparently it's all hit-or-miss from the sounds of the trouble everyone else has.
^ eBay has really gotten strict with selling digital goods. In fact it is forbidden regardless of how you deliver the goods (e-mail or mailing the voucher).
OP if you play with fire then plan on getting burned. It sucks, I know, but it's eBay's playground and if you willingly violate the rules, especially after being warned, then you are going to get your account banned.
And listing violations are based on selling volume. If you only sell a few or even a hundred items a year just a few violations will cause your account to get shut down. If you sell thousands, which would be enough sales to pad a listing violation, then continue doing what you are doing and hope not to get caught.
From what I have gathered through talking to eBay CSR agents and inquiring on some of the forums eBay has automated software that looks for certain words... you can bet that DLC, Code, Download, Digital Copy, E-mail, are on that list. Depending on the category you sell in you are at a higher risk of getting flagged. Since most of the problems with digital goods tend to be in media categories (Games, movies, music) you had better believe that if you sell in those categories and have listings that contain words such as what I pointed out there is a good chance that your listings will get caught.
And as always you also run the risk of getting reported by competitors.
Hell I've even had DLC items get listing policy violations several days AFTER the sale had ended (retroactively) and this happened as recently as the Halo 4 release.
