Welcome to the BigSoccer Equipment and Gear Forum SwapShop. Before listing items for sale, or requesting items through this forum, please familiarise yourself with the NEW forum rules, and the reprimands that will follow if these rules are not adhered to. If you wish to sell any items in this forum, you MUST POST IN THIS THREAD prior to starting a thread to say that you have read, and agree to, the rules outlined in this post. THE RULES This forum is for the trade and sale of SOCCER RELATED EQUIPMENT ONLY. Any unrelated sales listing will be DELETED and you will be YELLOW CARDED for spamming. This forum is for the trade and sale of personal items only. No commercialised selling is allowed, this includes (but is not limited to) dealers, vendors, resellers, and wholesalers advertising items. If you meet the criteria above and try to sell through this forum, or post a link to your online store, your thread will be DELETED and you will be YELLOW CARDED for spamming. Posting links to external websites for personal gain contravenes the Terms of Service that you signed up to when you registered with BigSoccer, however if you would like to pay for advertising please contact the Site Administrator, Huss. To sell your items here, you must be a member of BigSoccer for 90 DAYS OR MORE and have made 25 POSTS OR MORE in any BigSoccer forum. We do not appreciate Newbies using this forum to sell their stuff, as the success of this forum is based on trust between users, and Newbies do not breed trust. We check the profile history of EVERY POSTER who contributes in this forum, and if you break this rule you will be banned from this forum for three months – the duration of the time you were meant to be a member before posting. When selling, all products need to have a price. “Make offers” is not allowed. Firm asking prices are necessary unless you are running an eBay auction, in which case you can place the starting bid. NO PRICE CHECKS – i.e. “How much could I get for this?” Where possible, please do not make more than one thread. Keep all of your stuff for sale in one thread only. Bumping of threads will not be tolerated. You may bump your thread if you post the links to the eBay auction for the item or to respond to a question, or if you are dropping the asking price of your item by 10% or more, but any other bumping will result in your listing being removed and you receiving an infraction. We have a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY for unauthentic or counterfeit items. If you sell any fake or counterfeit goods on this site, all identifiable and personal information will be turned over to Trading Standards in your country and you WILL be reported to the authorities. Do not do it. Posting anything that pertains to “what a rip-off!” in another seller’s thread is not acceptable. Buyers here are well informed and if it’s not a good deal, they won’t buy it. Sellers have a right to ask any price they want, and buyers have the right to not pay it. A stickied thread is situated at the top of the page for feedback. This means that, much in the style of eBay, following a transaction you can leave a comment about how your transaction went. We strongly suggest that both buyer and seller leave a comment following a successful transaction, to build up reputation on the forum, and show that you are trustworthy. The Moderators are not Small Claims Court judges. If disputes arise we will make every effort to mediate and settle them, but please remember that BigSoccer is not responsible for any selling or buying on this forum – it is undertaken at your own risk. POSTING When selling your item, you need to ensure that the following rules are adhered to. You must clearly state “FOR SALE” or “WANTED” in the thread title. If you are selling an item, you must state the SIZE of the item. An example of a valid thread title would be: FOR SALE: Nike Mercurial Vapor SL Red/Gold, UK10/US11 If you recieve questions from members, we recommend that you post these, along with the answer, in your thread. The more information you put on your item, the more attention it will get. When your item is sold, please state this in your thread so a moderator can close it. If you do not adhere to the above your thread may be deleted until you can get it right! Finally, use your common sense. Be wary of members offering deals which are too good to be true, as nine times out of ten they probably are. We want to keep this a useful place for everyone, so don’t abuse the rules. If you have any problems please contact myself or another forum Moderator.
