YOUR PROFILE NEEDS TO SHOW YOUR NAME. Not this for example: Lv Thaprincess Smith. You will be denied and sent a message explaining why you were denied and how to fix it.
We now have a new Strike Policy (with strike as well)
BUYERS NEED TO SELL IN ORDER OF INTEREST!
-The Interested button was created to encourage BUYERS TO MESSAGE THE SELLERS!
-Before this, too many people would comment “want” and then never respond to the seller.
-Once you click interested, it leaves an automated comment that you are interested in that item and then prompts you to message the seller right away.
-YOU NEED TO MESSAGE AFTER clicking interested to insure you are in line next. If other are in line, just write “next please” in the message.
-If you click interested, you need to be ready to purchase the item. Can click "I am no longer interested" if you decide to pass or no longer want the item. If you were in contact with the seller, you need to let them know you pass.
Details for Posting:
-SELLING ON ANOTHER SITE? MAKE SURE TO ADD THAT IN YOUR DESCRIPTION. Otherwise, if you do not go in order you will get strikes and removed from the group.
Only ONE POST PER ITEM: Additional posts may be deleted without warning.
Additional posts of the same thing will be deleted. If you have additional picture of the item, put those into the comments.
UNLIMITED POSTS but one post per item.
NO STOCK PHOTOS - can take a picture of the box if still new.
(If it's impossible to post a real picture, contact an admin)

(Contact an admin if you have made a mistake on a price) (People watching your item will get a notification of this price change)

To mark an item pending/reserve, you need to reserve the item for that person. Once picked up, go to edit and mark the item sold at the bottom.

ITEMS ARE BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK. CHECK YOUR ITEMS!:
If you do not check it before handing over money, then there is not much that can be done. (someone's word does not help). We will try to make things fair with transactions that go sour but we cannot force any refunds, we will get both sides of the story to document everything and give strikes/removals as needed.
You are able to ask any admin for help here.
If you have any member complaints, let us know; no shows, not responding, gave me a broken item, etc.
We will get both sides of the story from both the buyer and seller. We may ask for screen shots of messages, posts, texts, etc. in order to handle it the proper way.
If we feel that your language, behavior, etc is not a good fit for our group, you may be removed at any time.
Admins have the right to remove a member for any reason
Removal is the result after complaints we get and strikes we give to members.
