GUIDELINES FOR USE OF THE CLASSIFIEDS

By posting or using this forum you agree to be bound by the guidelines and understand that at a Moderator or Administrator's discretion, inappropriate actions or misuse of this forum may result in your IP Address and Username being banned from this website.

 

  • You cannot start using the Classifieds until you have X amount of posts to our community. Consider introducing yourself to our community here.
  • Your new advertisement once posted requires moderator approval before being visible to the community.
  • This website accepts ONLY Australian / New Zealand origin advertisements offered for sale.
  • StereoNET encourages the use of Paypal only as payment method unless you are picking up the item for sale in person.

This protects both the seller AND the buyer from fraudulent transactions (it does happen!). Buyer beware! Paypal is free to signup, but you must verify your account with a credit card before being able to receive payments (this also confirms your identity and address). Paypal also includes Buyer Protection, and includes a Dispute Resolution system.

FORMAT FOR NEW POSTS/ADVERTISEMENTS:


Thread Title should be correctly formatted.
Examples:
"FS: Insert Item Name Here" Typical For Sale Thread
"WTB: Insert Item Name here" Wanted to Buy - Please ensure this is posted in correct "Wanted to Buy" Subforum.
"EOI: Insert Item Name Here" For Expressions of Interest thread. - PLEASE NOTE - Expressions of Interest posts MUST include an asking price. Your thread will not be approved if you do not include a price.

 

You should fill out your advertisement with as much detail as possible. Below are examples.

 

* Item full name and model etc. (include things like age, type etc ).
* Location (where you live, and whether or not you will sell interstate etc)
* Item condition description (provide as much details as possible, try to give the buyers a visual description of what to expect from your words.)
* Price and price conditions (such as negotiable, non-negotiable, will or will not consider selling items separately, no "make an offer").
Please see below regarding donations. You may want to consider making a donation to SNA, and may state the amount (Eg. $1200 includes $20 Donation to SNA).
* Reason for selling (A lot of buyers will ask this so please provide a reason, even if its only to say that you need the money).
* Payment Methods: There are only three methods available for your post to be approved. Paypal, Cash - Pickup, or Australia Post COD.
* Extra Info: (If there is any other info that you'd like to add put it here)
* Pictures (if you don't have pictures and cannot get any please state as such. If you think you can get pictures soon, please hold off posting the thread until you get the pictures, we want to avoid the posts where the first 5 replies are people asking about pictures). Please use the info in this thread to post your pictures.
if you have multiple items, please use a separate template for each.

 


REPOSTING OF ADS
Advertisements are automatically archived after 120 days (unless reported Sold earlier). Do not post duplicate advertisements within 30 days of your previous advertisement.
If you wish to relist your ad after 30 days, please report your previous advertisement, so moderators can archive your advertisement. You may then repost your item. If this is ignored, all duplicate advertisements may inadvertently be deleted.


Posts marked as 'Payment Pending' or similar will be considered and marked as 'SOLD'.

WHEN YOUR ITEM IS SOLD
On the top right hand side of your post, please use the button "Mark as Sold".

THE FOLLOWING ITEMS ARE DISALLOWED

  • illegal or dangerous items - guns, knives, chemicals etc...
  • Alcohol
  • items which breach copyright laws - copied movies, copied music, counterfeit products like handbags and watches
  • electrical items built DIY or that may contain unauthorised electrical modifications unless ELECTRICAL DISCLAIMER is included in advertisement.
  • other items SNA Moderators consider either in questionable taste or inappropriate to offer for public sale

If any of these guidelines are not met, your thread will be deleted and due to time constraints, you may not receive any notification.

 

This forum is for use only by private (non-commercial) members, to sell their items. This forum is NOT for use by non-supporting retailers or distributors, or anyone selling bulk items for personal profit including bulk sales.

 

SPONSORS can post their items to the Commercial Classifieds forum.

Moderators reserve the right to question, edit, close, or disapprove any advertisement that does not comply with the above, or appears to be obviously selling an item imported from overseas for profit.

Members posting nuisance replies (bagging of products, off topic discussions etc) will result in their posts being deleted, and possible suspension. You may not make any post which may potentially undermine the sale, including questioning the price, starting rumours about the provenance of the unit, and so on.

 

Note our, Responding to Classifieds Listings Sticky that clarifies how not to respond and how not to respond, what not to post in a classifieds listing.


EMAIL ADDRESSES and PHONE NUMBERS are not permitted to be posted in threads. All discussions shall take place either in the forums themselves or via Private Messages. Private contact details will be removed to ensure privacy.

EXTERNAL LINKS to eBay auctions are permitted, provided the advertisement posted to StereoNET still follows the correct template above, and a Buy It Now price is included in the advertisement.

GROUP PURCHASE Ads are not permitted unless prior approval is sought from StereoNET Admin.

 

SIGNATURES: Links to Classifieds Ads are not permitted in your Forum Signature.

 

Please note: it is up to the buyer and the seller to come to an agreement about all aspects of the transaction. It is very strongly advised that you discuss a DOA (dead on arrival) policy, whether the seller wishes to offer a limited warranty, and whether the item is to have insurance on shipping. Also, discuss who pays the insurance excess should a claim need to be lodged. It is not unreasonable to ask for a third party to inspect the goods prior to the sale, if this is an interstate transaction. By common convention - if the item can be proven to work before it is dispatched, and if it arrives undamaged, that is the end of the seller's responsibility.

 

DONATIONS
