Default AudiWorld Classifieds Rules

These are the rules which will govern the sale of items on the forum.

1. Commercial Sales
Supporting vendors pay for the considerable bandwidth charges on the Forum, making it free for the rest of us. In exchange, they get the privilege of using the Forum to market and promote their goods and services.

Forum members are welcome to sell any Audi vehicles or parts they purchased for their own personal use. Anything else is considered to be a commercial sale.

* Listing cars and parts for family or friend will not be allowed without prior approval by an administrator.

Members are permitted to sell a maximum of 2 personally owned vehicles on the forum during a rolling 12-month period. Exceeding that limit will be considered commercial sales and will require the seller to become a supporting dealer/vendor.

Only supporting vendors can post Group Purchase threads.

2. Best Offers & Gauging Interest
The forum will permit "OBO" or "serious offers" in a sale thread where a price has been stipulated.

We will not permit threads where no price is stated, and asks for open offers.

Only forum vendors are permitted to gauge interest in their products.

**NOTE** Supporting vendors sometimes offer prices that are below that recommended by manufacturers, so we allow them to post threads without a price and to ask people to contact them by phone or PM for the price. We extend the same courtesy to our supporting dealers, even though in most cases it is advantageous for them to post a price.

3. Purchasing an item for sale
The seller will determine who they want to sell their item/product to based on the expediency of payment, payment method, location, and overall ease of transaction. While some may feel that the first to commit to purchase in the thread would make it easy, it may not be for the seller. If another buyer lives nearby and can save the trouble of shipping, etc. the seller can move onto that buyer

4. No hijacking
Only replies related to the thread can be posted. If it is a for sale thread and you have the same item for sale, start your own thread.

5. Buy at your own risk
The forum does not assume any responsibility for transactions conducted on the forum, and therefore will not act the role of mediator, negotiator, or enforcer of any sale.

These are private transactions, and the forum's role is that of a facilitator to help members sell and buy items from one another. If available, use your credit card option for this will give you the best protection for recovering your money in a bad transaction. Also, buyers should avoid using the "gift," option in Paypal as this may eliminate your possibility to recovering your funds in a dispute.

As always, do your research on the seller before making a purchase, and remember, the forum only acts as a facilitator to allow members to buy and sell items, and we have no authority in forcing reimbursement of funds if there is a problem with a transaction.

6. Interference in a For Sale thread
If you donít like the price or item being offered in for sale thread, take it to e-mail or PMs. Better still, just move on to a thread that is offering something you like the price on.

If you post a criticism of the price or the quality of the item being offered, you will be in violation of Forum rules and subject to sanctions.

If you post your own for sale items to the for sale thread started by someone else, you also are in violation of Forum rules. Start your own thread, rather than jumping into the thread of someone else.

If your contribution to a for sale thread does not advance the sale, you are in the way.

If you spot inappropriate posts to a for sale thread, please alert a moderator.

7. Pictures of your item(s) is highly encouraged.

As the old saying goes: "a picture is worth a 1,000 words."

8. Shipping and handling charges

If possible, state how you will be shipping and how much you will charge. Most shipping companies will furnish an estimate based on dimensions of the box, the weight, origin and destination zip codes.


9. Be specific in your descriptions
Know your parts for sale before listing them in a thread. Your research and knowledge will help the buyer in making a decision to purchase.

10. Bumping threads
If you created a sale post and it has moved onto the second or third page of the section directory, you can simply "TTT" it rather than creating a new thread, but sale threads should not be bumped more than twice in any 24-hour period. Abuse of smilies or "TTT," in your thread, will result in it being closed or removed.

11. Items that sell
Sellers are asked to click the "Mark thread as SOLD" link in the top left of their thread once they have completed their sale so future users know that it is no longer available.
