Buy & Sell Rules

Creating an Ad:
Disclose the price, location, Shipping details and images of the items in question. no glam shots, only images which accurately show the condition of the items you are selling.

Do your Due diligence
All buyers and sellers should use their due diligence, if you think something isnt right about a seller or buyer please provide some sort of evidence (chat logs, screen shots) and contact the admin and we will intervene.

Payment Safety
When buying and trading items its safer for users to use paypal as a form of payment.

Note: Never make gift payments unless you are 100% sure the seller will deliver.
Always use the standard payment method with paypal and if someone tries to coach you otherwise we recommend not going through with the sale and contacting the admin right away.

Sellers
Sellers are recommended to factor in the 3% paypal fee which is added for a regular transaction, this will save a lot of misunderstandings.

Disputes
In the case where a transaction goes sour between parties please contact us immediately we will intervene and contact both parties in attempt to settle the matter.

Please note: that this doesn’t insure a refund or the retrieval of your items.
In the case where a member has illustrated scamming activities we will remove the offending member and make a note of it.

Thread Hijacking

Be nice
When it concerns Buy and Sell listings, members are expected to behave in a mature manner, this includes no bashing peoples prices or items they have up for sale.

If you have a problem with your listing or another persons listing please contact the admin.

AVOID Item for Item Trades
Item for Item trades: Where the buyer and the seller agree on a mutual trade of items is NOT RECOMMENDED.
