General Marketplace Rules:

THESE RULES APPLY FOR ALL SALE AND TRADE THREADS

-A photo of each item accompanied by a hand-written tag of the following information is required.

Required Information:
-Username
-Date

The only exceptions to this rule are the following.
1-If it is posted by an Approved Merchant.
2-If it is a link to an ebay item.

If you are selling multiple of the same item like wheels/tires you must have a picture of all 4 with a handwritten sign not just one.


Failure to comply will result in closing and/or deletion of your thread. Habitual offenses may result in a temporary suspension of your account.

Do not post a thread if you are "getting photos later". It will be closed, moved, and points will be assigned.

Here is an example of what it should look like:



All items listed must have a price. No items can be listed as "make offer". Prices with "Or best offer" are acceptable.

Example: $100.00 or best offer (OBO)

This way you the seller don't waste your time with low offers because the buyer doesn't know what the item is worth. It gives the buyer a general price range you want for the item.

--Low-balling in the Marketplace is not allowed. This includes comments on price, where to get it cheaper, you selling the same item for less, or any inflammatory remarks.
-The items that you place for sale in the marketplace must be your OWN parts. There is no selling for a friend who doesn't have an account here. We have had issues in the past with people who have sold items for friends, and those so called "friends" have scammed our members.


-Group buys by Non-Approved Vendors are not allowed.

-No bashing vendors, shops, or other websites without just cause. If you have a complaint, please see our Merchant Dispute policy.

All For sale threads with no posts in 3 months will be purged.

example:March 1st everything with post from February, January, and December were kept and everything from November and before was purged. This is done at the beginning of every month.

Post Count Inflation or commonly referred to as "Post whoring" is not authorized on EvoxForums. Meaning that you may not inflate your post count with nonsense on the forum to be able to gain access to the market place.

For Example: You became a member of the forums in 2009. Flash forward to 2013 and you have zero posts. You may not inflate your post count to 53 in a span of 2 hours just to be able to sell parts from your Evo, that you do not even own anymore.


Why do we have this rule?

1. It is to protect our contributing members from potential scammers.
2. Being able to sell your products here is not a "right" it is a privelage, and you cannot break the rules to get "privelages" here.

Moral of the Story: Contribute something positive to this community. If you want the privelages of this community you have to earn them by contributing. This isnt Ebay or craigslist.

The staff here at Evoxforums will remove posts that are suspected of post count inflation. That will mean you will not be able to sell items or have access to the marketplace until you have a legit 50 post count.

Any questions of the above information then send a PM to InfantryMP

Major update to the Marketplace!!!!

Marketplace threads that have not been bumped within the last 90 days will be removed. It used to be that we would keep them for 6 months, no longer will we do that. If you don't bump your sales thread for 90 days, the thread will be considered abandoned, and will be removed from the forum.

This will also make navigating the marketplace easier will less pages of stagnant threads.

Market Place has been purged to only have sales threads that have been active for the last 90 days.

If you lost a thread due to this, then simply re-do the thread with a current handwritten username and date. Do not repost old pictures if you lost a thread due to the purge.

Announcement:

If you are caught selling items or services via PM, and you are not authorized to do so, you will be permanently banned from Evoxforums.com.

Example: Selling E-tunes via PM on Evoxforums, and you live in Socal. You have posted numerous craigslist adds advertising such E-tunes. If you get caught selling them via PM without being a vendor you will be banned from evoxforums for life!

This is blatantly disrespectful to our current vendors, and the staff here so regulate the forums everyday. If you have to go behind someone's back to get something done, then it probably isn't the right thing to do anyway!

News flash​

I have had 4 Pm's today asking why someone doesn't have access to the marketplace.


You need 50 legit posts on the forums before you earn the privilege of being able to post in the marketplace.

What this also tells me, is that when people sign up for the forums, they don't bother to look at the rules, or the noob help center, which is given to you automatically from the admins once you make an account here.
