While millions of bargain enthusiasts use the online auctioneer to find rare collectibles and recycled goods, children as young as 13 have found that they are able to sidestep the law by finding alcohol vendors who do not ask for proof of age on purchase.
In a report by ABC's 20/20 team, 13-year-old Xander showed reporters just how easy it was to buy alcohol this way.
Though one vendor refused to sell him his product if Xander didn't send a copy of his ID, he was able to complete his transaction with two other sellers.
With money given to him by the producers of 20/20, Xander explained: 'All I had to do was type in vodka on the search bar, click one button and it can send it to my house.'
Within five weeks, ABC reported, the five bottles of vodka had arrived on Xander's doorstep.
