Posting Guidlines for ebay, and other auctions or sales sites (4 April 2021 Important Update)


Recommended Posts

Before posting link in the Deals section, please read the following guidelines;

Items for sale, auction and offers, can now constitute a potential deal and be included, although with auctions the final price will not be known, there is no reason members attention cannot be drawn to auctions items which may well sell under their true value

It was thought that the increased visibility of auction items is likely to push the price of an item up and may disadvantage a member who has in interest in bidding for the item. We believe the reverse this is true and members may miss out on auctions where an item can be gained for a good price. It also seems unfair for auction and offers items to be excluded, where the knowledge may benefit the entire membership.

Items may be removed at the moderators discretion: This would include items owned by a forum member and linked to, in order to circumvent the "For Sale" area rules. You can already indicate the item is for sale on ebay with a link in your "for sale" listing

Only "Buy it Now" items should be placed in this section - as these could represent a deal

Items for sale and not auction, constitute a potential deal since the contract price is known

Items for auction (where no such assurance of a deal exists - eg an item with a starting price of 99p with 3 days to go) may not be a deal - as the end price is not likely to remain at 99p, and the definition of whether this item was a deal or not will not be known until the auction ends

The increased visibility is likely to push the price of an item up and may disadvantage a member who has in interest in bidding for the item

Hi @DavecUK What is the position on “Offers” which potentially could be a deal?
