Description
OUTSIDE_EBAY_BUYING_AND_SELLING
The seller will specify this compliance type to see if any listings are violating eBay's policy of not allowing links in the listing to sites outside of eBay. The seller including a personal email address and/or a phone number in the listing is also a violation of this policy. All communication between seller and buyers should be handled through eBay's communication system. The only exceptions to this outside links rule are links to product videos, information on freight shipping services, or any legally required information.
HTTPS
The seller will specify this compliance type to see if any listings are violating eBay's policy of using an 'HTTP' link {to eBay and non-eBay sites) in the listing instead of 'HTTPS' links. This requirement includes links to externally-hosted listing images. If the server hosting the listing images does not support the HTTPS protocol, this server cannot be used to host listing images.
PRODUCT_ADOPTION
The seller will specify this compliance type to see if any listings {or variations within multiple-variation listings) are violating eBay's new Product-Based Shopping Experience requirement. Starting with the first phase launched in May 2018, some eBay categories and product lines now require that sellers list those products using an eBay Catalog product. For more information on Product-Based Shopping Experience, see the Product-Based Shopping Experience Playbook.
PRODUCT_ADOPTION_CONFORMANCE
The seller will specify this compliance type to see product-based listings (associated with an eBay catalog product) with listing details that are out of synch with the eBay catalog product it is based on, or it is possible that the wrong eBay catalog product is being used. The seller should take action based on the returned violation message.

Note: Currently, this compliance type is only supported in Sandbox, and just like with the other compliance types, only a canned response is returned in the Sandbox environment.
RETURNS_POLICY
The seller will specify this compliance type to see if any listings have return periods that are no longer supported. Recently, many eBay sites (including US) deprecated the 14-day return period, so the minimum return period is now 30 days for many eBay sites.
