GDC ?For Sale? Forum Rules.

Here is how this Forum should work: The seller describes his artifact carefully and includes good photos. A buyer sees what he likes, contacts the seller, strikes a deal, and promptly sends the seller the money. In return he receives a carefully packed item that exceeds his expectations. Sometimes it does not quite work out that way in the real world so here are the rules. Please read these:

Buyers and sellers using this Forum agree to abide by the following:

1. Premium Members may post ?For Sale? ads in this Forum and the items must be their property. No consignments or favors for friends, please. Sellers must post their contact email address in each ad. Ads without a contact email address will be removed.

2. Sellers must post at least one photograph of the item(s) for sale. They are encouraged to use several photographs and describe the item in detail including any faults. Similar smaller items should be grouped into one ad. Ads without photos will be removed.

3. Sellers must post their asking price, and must say whether postage / insurance / tracking / signature confirmation are included. They may require the seller to purchase insurance / tracking / signature confirmation as a condition of sale. We strongly recommend that these be a part of any deal.

4. Sellers must offer a minimum of a five day no-fault inspection period (from the time of receipt of the item(s) by the buyer) during which time the buyer may return the item(s) for a full refund minus the cost of postage and insurance. No ?restocking fee? or ?service charge? may be levied on the buyer. If the item is altered by the buyer, it is NOT returnable. Failure to return full purchase price minus postage / insurance will result in the seller being suspended until the money is returned.

5. If no other agreement has been reached between buyer and seller, payment is due ASAP. If the seller not received payment within 14 days, and no other conditions have been agreed upon, the seller may consider the sale void and re list the item.

6. Sellers are strongly encouraged to send the merchandise only after payment has been received unless they are familiar and comfortable with the buyer.

7. Please limit ads to militaria or items closely associated with our hobby. Buyers and sellers are responsible for complying with US and State laws or laws of other countries as concerns shipping prohibited items.

8. Sellers may limit the geographical area to which they will sell, and the carriers/mail service they will use to send the item(s). They may also limit how they wish to be paid, i.e. ?no Paypal? or ?USPS Money Orders only?, etc. Sellers may NOT require ?Cash Only? as a condition of sale.

9. With international sales, sellers are advised to fill out customs declaration forms factually. If the buyer requests specific language or declared value, any fallout from this is the buyer?s problem. Also with international sales, buyer and seller are advised to agree on a carrier that offers full tracking service door to door.

10. Sellers may withdraw an item at any time before a deal is reached, but once an agreement is reached a deal is deal. Once a seller accepts a buyer?s offer, both parties are obliged to follow through with the deal as long as these rules are being followed.

11. Ads have a life span of 30 days, after which they will be moved to the ?Expired Ads? Forum. Ads may be reposted.

Note that mistakes, misunderstandings, postal errors, and such do happen, and we can help you sort these out. If sellers or buyers feel that there is something not right, or shady going on with their deal they should report problems to the Administrators. Infractions of the above rules will be treated seriously by GDC, with sanctions to match the infractions.

I had not checked for a while and noticed that the rules had vanished ... or something. My Apologies, and I have re posted them. Comments welcome.

Good Dave..

2 small things...

- We have a photo limit here on the site.. I would suggest all buyers to request: nice BIG, in focus, detailed photos, from every angle ,inside and out. Really,,the seller should insist on it as it will keep the returns down to a minimum. This day and age even the phones taking good photos this should be done,,,and then mentioned on forum - 'Bigger photos sent to buyer'...

- On international sales.. No matter what is paid,or how secure it is, the possibility the item you sell,,or the item you buy,, will not reach its intended destination.. Only thing that can be guaranteed is that the item was mailed and that it did leave the country. That is it.!.. This is for items leaving the US [seller] and items coming in from another country [buyer].
