Meet-up places need to be considerate of those in the San Marcos Area. As our site grows and more people join from the surrounding areas, it must be considered that this page was designed for people of a common area to do business together with out excessive travel. So if you live outside of the city limits you must be willing to meet in town for pickups.
You must post a picture of the ACTUAL item you are selling. If you do not have a picture, you can post a stock picture of the item (example: from Wal-Mart or Target website). If posting a HANDMADE item, it must be a picture of the actual product YOU made.
You must post the condition of your item. Note any imperfections, stains, missing pieces, broken pieces, etc. Please be open and HONEST.
Respectful Intruding on an item
Please be respectful to the price asked by the seller. If you would like the item at a lower cost take it up through personal messaging. People jumping in on your listing and advertising publicly where to get a better deal, making you feel uncomfortable by asking you to compromise your listing, or PMing you to offer you more money thus breaking site rules.
First Come First Served
First person to ask a question or implies interest gets the item. We cannot select who we want to sell to and this isn't ebay - offering a higher bid is not allowed - A question asked implies interest and would place them first in line. Tagging DOES NOT secure a friends or neighbors place in line. Tag with the word interested or poss int will not automatically count and move to the next buyer. 12 hour wait time must be in place before you move on to the next potential person interested.
If you tag someone on a post, it does not mean they have first dibs. It just means you want them to see it. The seller is under no obligation to give it to the person you tag.
Please be considerate of the seller and don’t expect them to hold an item for an extended period of time. If you have to check with someone else (husband, children, etc.), please indicate that when claiming the item. Please try and have an answer to the seller as quick as possible. 12 hours is a reasonable waiting period. If you cannot have an answer by that time, expect the seller to move to the next person on the list.
STICK TO THE PRICE!!! If someone offers you more and you have already committed to others and it is posted in either a private message, via text message, or on the commented under the actual item, you are obligated to sell that item at the price you already agreed on in the order on which the persons have asked for the item. You may list an item as “Make Offer” but if you set a price and someone commits to buying your item at the asking price, you may not back out of your commitment because someone offers more money. This is NOT a bidding site.
Re-Selling a purchased item within the same site is prohibited unless it is sold at the same price.
We typically allow 12-48 hours time frame for a buyer to pick up an item. If you wish your item to be sold, and picked up, prior to this time frame, you must post that in the description. This will ensure that everyone knows you will not be able to wait for buyers to get back to you later.
Completing the Sale
Once someone has claimed your item, please Private Message (PM) them the information for pick up. A good rule of thumb is to put as much information in the PM. For example: 1. Regarding item ______ 2. Regarding price _____ 3. Pick up location. Using this information will ensure the buyer has all the information they need on the item you sold.
Picking Up an Item
If you claim an item, please pick it up as soon as possible. Make arrangements with the seller and follow through. Expected pick up time is 12 to 48 hours after committal of the item. Communicate to the seller if you have any problems delaying you from following through with the pick-up. It takes time out schedules and planning to schedule a ‘meet up.’ What is even worse is to wait 30-45 minutes on someone and them never show up, their phone is turned off, etc.
If you do not show up to pick up an item, you may be reported to an admin and could ultimately be removed from the group.
It is YOUR responsibility to look at the items you are purchasing before you leave with them. Once they are in your possession, they are yours to re-list if there is an issue with them (i.e.: stained clothing, faulty, broken, missing parts or pieces etc.). Sell & buy at your OWN RISK. The only reason why the seller would have to provide a refund is if the item was falsely represented in their posting.
