PLACING AN AD IN MARKETPLACE

IMPORTANT NOTE: ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN WITH POTN 30 DAYS AND POSTED 30 MESSAGES MAY LEAVE ADS.


  1. Include your country of residence in the title, even if you are willing to sell outside that area. Within the post, please provide an indication of where you live.
  2. Specify the currency you are selling in.
  3. Post pictures, where applicable, in the original post.
  4. Please list any extras or accessories you will include in the transaction.
  5. State the acceptable method(s) of payment.
  6. Please state if shipping/insurance is included in the price. Also state the method of shipping you are proposing.
  7. Mark SOLD by locking the thread: see http://photography-on-the.net/forum/...d.php​?t=179825
  8. All Thread titles should include one or more of the following abbreviations in the TITLE:


    FS = For Sale
    FA = for Auction (it is permissible to advertise your ebay /auctions, but they MUST contain "FA" in the title)
    FT = For trade
    WTB = Want to buy (when your looking to buy something.)

    If you sell only to certain continent, country or trade area, please state that in title, e.g.:
    For Sale (UK) Canon EF-S 17-85mm
    For Sale (US) Canon EF-S 17-85mm
    For Sale Canon EF-S 17-85mm (EU)
    It is always helpful to your fellow members to have your actual location listed either in the thread, or in your member profile.

DOUBLE-CHECK THAT ALL FACTS AND PRICES ARE CORRECT, AND THAT YOU HAVE PROVIDED PHOTOS AND ALL RELEVANT INFO. MAKE ALSO SURE THAT YOUR EMAIL IS WORKING AND THAT IT IS ENABLED IN FORUM'S USER CONTROL PANEL.

To automatically follow replies, use our "subscription" feature: either set it on in your User CP before posting or use thread tools -> subscribe thread after posting.

UPDATE:
13 October 2008
In attempt to avoid blatant scam attempts and have some post history on those who place ads, and to make the Sell and Buy forums a service for our loyal member and not just a passer-by:


From now on you will need to be an established member of POTN in order to start new threads in buy or sell forums. This means you need 30 days and 30 posts before you can place your ad or reply to them.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WHEN YOU REACH 30 POSTS AND 30 DAYS, PERMISSIONS UPDATE WILL TAKE COUPLE OF HOURS.


Please let moderators know if you have any permission problems after the change.


IMPORTANT NOTE:
If you decide to act as an proxy for member who does not have permission to participate to marketplace or send PM, then we have no way to prevent that (unless you tell us). But be aware of this: if there is a scam, you will also get banned for aiding a scammer. So please do not do it unless you know the member 100% and trust him/her 100%.

RESPONDING TO AN AD IN MARKETPLACE

RESPONDING TO AN AD IN MARKETPLACE

This is your transaction. It is in your best interests to use traceable lines of communication such as e-mail or the telephone to conduct your business.

If you must use PM then feel free to do so but doing so you must understand that in case of trouble POTN will not give you any PM logs or user trace info because we are not part of the deal in any way. We do not guarantee that PM's reach their targets, either. When using your own email you have your own logs and also possibly your own ISP there to help you in trace.

It is up to you to verify buyer's/seller's integrity and it is up to you to manage transaction safely.

TO GET TO KNOW SELLER, PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT SELLERS PRIOR POSTS AND DISCUSSIONS AT POTN. YOU CAN DO IT BY CLICKING USER NAME ON THE LEFT SIDE AREA AND SELECTING "VIEW MORE POSTS BY....".

Because we have now sorting (by thread) bumps do not really matter. So, ability to reply to posts is on again.

You can also edit your own posts now. Please state the reason of edit in respective text box in editor.

Of course there is a catch: I disabled new posts to marketplace from showing in "new posts" page, to prevent yet one way of bumping ads.

I also made new stickies in hoping people would actually read them :) http://photography-on-the.net/forum/forumdis​play.php?f=14
