    Default Overhaul of the For Sale/Market section

    Hi Everyone,

    Over the coming weeks there will be an overhaul to the For Sale section of the forum.
    This will include updating of the rules and who can and cannot post in this section.

    The exact details are still under discussion between the Admin and Moderation teams however, this is in response to a few recent sales where the purchasing members were not happy with the condition or the way the deal was handled.

    Unfortunately the buying and selling of items through the site are 'buyer beware' and all caution should be taken to ensure any items you sell have a true description and if you are purchasing you promptly pay.

    As a precaution from this date forward the team would like to stress the importance of using PayPal for transactions, where appropriate to ensure some protection.

    Also - please be aware that as a seller, if your item descriptions are found to be un-true we can, and will terminate your membership. In addition, if asked by authorities we will disclose any required information to protect our other members.

    Any further changes to the T&C's of the FS section will be communicated in the next fortnight or so.

    Its a shame that these changes will need to be made, considering for most the part we are a very tight knit community and there have been no issues for so long.

    Regards
    Justin

    You could use a member sales number.
    Where the more you sell, the higher number you get. Like a Karma type thing.

    The lower the number, the lower the valued item you can sell too maybe?

    Good Idea Troy.

    Something like the eBay system of feedback.
    Not so much the written feedback comments, but, positive Vs negative ratings that can be viewed as part of the member's profile.

    Default Overhaul of the For Sale/Market section

    What about a system where the money goes to a moderator, buyer receives product as described, moderator releases funds? Extra effort but handy on larger ticket items.

    If we have to go to that point might as well close the section..

    Simpler to use cod or PayPal

    It's a good idea but wouldn't stop the current issue we have seen. I will look into it, if such an add on exists for vb.

    We are unfortunately limited on what we can do due to the forum functionality, which doesn't help.

    As for the Mods holding the funds, again not viable, I certainly don't have the time to be monitoring income and outgoing payments and making payments to people.

    None of us have time to do that Luke. If it came to that I'd just close the fs section.
    Unless it was a scan there is no way to know the details are legitimate.

    There should also be a stipulation that each item sold has an original pic taken, most ads here include no pic or link to a stock photo.
