Trading Rules

These rules apply to everyone posting in the For Sale and Wanted forum whether they are the originator of a thread or replying to an existing thread. They are somewhat detailed, but only because we want to avoid confusion. They are here to help avoid disappointment (from simple wasted time to deliberate fraud), for both the vendors and purchasers. Please read them carefully and abide by the rules every time you post.

The rules are here to protect genuine, honest traders.

By posting in this forum you agree to abide by all of the rules of this forum and not to enter into any arguments with moderators, whose decision is final. Moderators of this forum are empowered to

a) impose a ban on members found to be breaking any rules of this forum.
b) remove any posts in any other forums questioning/arguing any decisions made by moderators here.
c) following fraudulent actions, terminate your account, publish your details in a bad trader's thread and give all details about you to the damaged parties and the police.

Note: anyone deliberately defrauding other traders will be dealt with severely. We encourage defrauded traders to seek assistance from the police and we actively assist the police to secure a conviction.


Please note that you can only start a thread if you are an Extra Member on the forum. Posts not in accordance with the rules may be ruthlessly edited or deleted. All selling by private forum members (ie everyone apart from dealers) must be done in this forum section.

These rules apply to both For Sale and Wanted threads.

1. Prohibited Items
This forum is only open for selling legal items, that you own and are yours to sell. Items prohibited from sale include (but are not limited to): Pirated material such as copied games, DVDs or any storage media containing same, OEM software (e.g. MS Windows) which is intended to be sold installed on a computer, Stock belonging to a business, Aeroplane Tickets, Alcohol, Animals and Wildlife Products, Counterfeit Currency and Stamps, Counterfeit and Trademarked Items, Credit Cards, Drugs and Drug paraphernalia, Firearms and Ammunition, Fireworks, Football Tickets, Lockpicking Devices, Lottery Tickets, Mailing Lists and Personal Information, Multi-level Marketing, Pyramid, Matrix and Trading Schemes, Offensive Material, Prescription Drugs and Materials, Recalled Items, Shares and Securities, Stolen Items, Surveillance Equipment, Tobacco and Tobacco Products, Train Tickets, Travel Vouchers, Unlocking Software.

2. Descriptions
If an item is promotional (for example a CD), include this in the description.
Include the condition of the item, and if appropriate the packaging.
You must put the following text at the bottom of the first post of a new thread :"I have read the trading rules and will follow them to the letter". If you don't the thread will be deleted without correspondence.

3. You must provide a price when selling.

4. Asking and offer prices must include postage and packing costs (or be clearly detailed).

5. You may not list an item that is available for sale elsewhere or at auction,
including eBay.
This is because anyone trying to buy your item here will have to wait until the auction has ended, and then may not get the item. Likewise while a deal is being negotiated here the item may sell elsewhere. The only exception to this rule is whole cars - which may be advertised here in addition to Autotrader and Pistonheads (please post in your thread when your car has been sold or traded in). If your items here are not selling and you wish to advertise them elsewhere - simply PM a moderator and he will close your thread for you. You may not advertise links to your own auctions held elsewhere. Any ebay links (including your own auctions) may be placed in the "ebay links" forum. This forum section does not allow replies, and is not visible to Google and the outside world.

6. If you wish to modify an earlier offer that has not been acknowledged - either to increase or reduce it - post again.

7. The first person to offer the asking price for an item should get the item. Nobody has an automatic right to having a second bid, if you want something offer the asking price. If the seller offers any items to a certain member at a certain price then said member should get first refusal at that price. We would recommend that you give any member you make this offer to at least 24hours to respond before offering it to someone else.

8. All communications must be on the thread,
you may not make offers or strike a deal or communicate in any way off the thread via PM/email/phone. The offer and acceptance (or refusal) must be on the thread. You are not permitted to publish your phone number, email address or any other means of communication on the thread. One exception is for the sale of cars - all conduct is on the thread and then when a buyer wants to view the car then the seller should post "xxx is arranging to view the car" and then the pair can switch to PM/email. After the viewing the seller or buyer can update the the thread with the outcome.

9. Thread spoiling is not tolerated.
If you have no intention of making a purchase, stay off the thread. If you are interested in the item for sale, you may link to a website offering a lower price. Posts from users who are clearly not interested in buying, will be deleted.

10. The seller is responsible for ensuring the buyer receives their item.
The seller should consider appropriate tracking and insurance options when sending items, and is responsible for making a claim where an item does go missing.

11. No commercial traders, other than those sanctioned by CORSA-D|UK.
A trader is classed as anybody who intentionally buys one or more items to sell on at a profit, and anybody who lists three or more of the same item in the same thread, or in subsequent threads. Commercial traders (including all companies) may advertise in the General Commercial Posts section.

12. WITHDRAWING. Once a sale has been agreed on the forums you may not withdraw from it without a very good reason. You will need to PM a moderator with an explanation. Even if you have a good reason, the moderators reserve the right to impose a short trading ban.

13. Similar Item Limits When posting a group of items for sale of a similar area of interest (e.g. selection of car parts, or selection of DVD's). Post all items for sale in one for sale thread and not a group or several threads.

14. Non EM Item Swopping While it is required for a member to have Extra Membership in order to create and sell an item on out forums, if an item is offered up as a trade in a wanted thread where no money is involved (straight swop one item for another, with no monitory gains) Extra Membership isn't required.
