Classified Ad's Guidlines
« on: February 05, 2018, 08:56:59 PM »
In order to list your merchandise on the Commercial Classifieds you must first be a Sakapfet Sponsor. To become a Sakapfet Sponsor, please go to the "Be a Sponsor" link at the top of the page.

Who qualifies as a private seller? A private seller is a Sakapfet member who has previously purchased an item for his own use and has decided to sell it. The item may be new or used, but the intent is the issue; IF you bought it with the intent of reselling it here, are building to order or you are planning to order more if you sell what you have, you are not a private seller. If you are a commercial seller, you need to acknowledge that you are doing it for profit and pay the fees accordingly. Sponsorship does not give you the right to sell commercially. You may list and sell items that actually belong to you. If you have a friend who wants to sell something, they need to join and list it themselves.

Here are the Basic Rules for posting your ad:

A) Unless your are a paid advertiser or Sponsor, you may sell personally owned items only. Sales "for friends" are not allowed. If your friend has something to sell, they need to sign up and play by the rules. Multiple listings or multiple quantities of similar or identical items (rods, reels, parts etc) will be considered a business listing and not allowed on the Private Classifieds Forum. Please limit your ads to one per week and do not dominate the forum.

B) Private Ad's will run approximately 4 months before they are deleted or frozen. If you do not sell your item within 6 months you will need to place another free ad.

C) "Bumping" which is the technique of replying to a thread to bring it back to the top is allowed as long as it is not excessive. Daily bumps are not permitted.

D) State a selling price in your listing. The price may include OBO (or best offer). This is not an auction site and listed that appear to be auctions will be deleted. All items must be listed with a fixed price.

E) Links to eBay or other auction sites are not allowed unless the item is also listed here at a firm price.

Please limit replies to questions about the item involved. The person posting their ad is doing so to sell their item and not necessarily to get into discussions regarding their asking price or to open discussions for comparisons of their item to other items.

Sellers are not obligated to answer or reply to questions about their product publicly. Off topic replies and those of the nature above will be deleted and the poster warned.
