    5 ads MAX – A maximum of 5 ads may be listed and/or open per month. This includes ads from previous month. You may only start a max of 5 ads per month. A month is the first day to last day of any given month on the calendar.

    10 items MAX – A maximum of 10 items per ad. If more then 10 members can purchase items from one ad then you are selling more then 10 items in that ad. NOTE:Does not apply to Auction Ads

    Add Ons -
    No adding of additional items to your FS ad after it has been established. Note: Does not apply to VS.

    WTS Ads -
    Want to Sell (WTS) ads shall be for not more than thirty (30) days. If the item(s) has not sold in that time period the ad shall be closed. The ad shall contain an accurate description of what you are offering for sale as well as the quantity available, cost of the item, shipping methods offered and payment types accepted.

    Bumping Ads - Daily bumping of your ads is allowed. However, once an ad reaches 30 days without interest it must be closed then moved to completed deals.

    Casual Sales - Selling off stuff that you have around the house but will never use again defines casual sales. For sales ads which do not meet this definition see Vendor Sponsor below.

    Vendor Sponsor (VS) - Members who offer large amounts of items for sale on a continual basis or offer a service on a recurring basis must become a VS. Ad limits or item limits do not apply to a VS. If you would like to become a VS please click -> CONTACT US
    VS are restricted to listing their ads in the S&S section or their VS sections. Ads listed in discussion areas are prohibited. Sales are limited to items agreed upon when you sign up as a VS

    "I’ll take it" - There is no "I’ll take it" rule. It is at the sellers discretion whom they sell to.
    DO NOT report a post because you didn't win the item. This will result in a infraction being issued to you.

    Feeler Threads - Feeler threads are NOT allowed. Feeler threads are nothing more than WTS threads in disguise. Posting of a "feeler thread" will result in an infraction being issued.

    Open Ended Sale - Items listed for sale with undefined quantity (Does not apply to Vendor Sponsors)

    General Information:

    Payment options:
    The price (if not an auction) and acceptable methods of payment are determined by the seller and must be listed in the ad if applicable. Cast Boolits recommends that seller(s)/buyer(s) use a method that offers the most recourse in the event the deal does not turn out as expected. Cast Boolits also recommends that the seller do not ship the item(s) until payment is received.

    What to do when finished with a WTS/WTB/WTT/AUCTION post:
    When you are finished with your post please post once more in the ad the word “CLOSED” and then close the post. If you have any problems use the report function to report the ad after you have posted CLOSED and it will be handled by the staff.
    You do not need to edit the original post, just put “CLOSED” and close the post.

    **** Caveat Emptor ****
    Buyers beware! The S&S section is provided for members to buy and sell their unneeded items. It is the joint responsibility of the buyer(s) & seller(s) to ensure the details of the transactions are satisfactory to both parties before completing the transaction.

    Please do not make more work for the staff. These rules are basic stuff. Good business manners as well as respect of others is expected. Anyone can use the REPORT feature to report a post - remember to include a note explaining why you think there is in violation

    Infractions will be issued when rules are broken. Once 3 infractions are issued that members access to the S&S area will be restricted.

    We desire a level and honest playing field above all and if you take advantage of the open and fair posting, it will eventually be noticed.

    Please try to remember this forum does not exist merely to facilitate your evading Ebay fees.

    If you have a question about your sales, contact No_1.
