Guidelines for Buyers/Sellers

Disclaimer - Ink Trails does not and cannot evaluate/verify items for sale, sellers/buyers, or prices. These rules are intended to maintain order and to assist, rather than impede, personal sales and trades among forum members. However, we cannot ensure that every offer is legitimate or fairly priced. We are not responsible for the actions of forum members in carrying out the terms of sales, purchases, and trades. Note: This forum is for TATTOO RELATED ITEMS ONLY!

We cannot control members, or their actions and we advise you to use same due caution when dealing with people on this forum as you would with anyone on the world-wide web. Below are some simple rules you should always follow when buying/selling in this board (or anywhere online):

1. You MUST specify either WTB (want to buy), WTS, (want to sell) in your title. This means the title of your post should look like this:

WTS: Used Eikon Green Monster Shader

2. If you are selling, you MUST specify an ASKING PRICE. If you want to auction something, use eBay.

3. If you post an item for sale, we STRONGLY encourage sellers to POST A PICTURE of the item for sale. Buyers want to see what they are buying and it will improve your chances of selling your item.

4. You should ONLY use Paypal (or similar services) when sending payment to anyone online (no checks, money orders, wire-transfers, cash). Services like this offer fraud protection and can help you take action and recover lost money. If they don't have a Paypal account set-up, don't buy from them. If you don't have one set-up, get on it.

5. Require that items are shipped via FedEx/UPS as they issue tracking numbers and signature confirmation to ensure the package was shipped and received. You can also opt for C.O.D (cash on delivery) to help prevent fraud.

6. Research and ask if other members have has favorable transactions with the person you are buying from. If the member has not conducted any transactions with any other members, ask them if they have an eBay account that shows positive feedback.

7. Use your gut! If something doesn't seem right, let someone else test the waters before jumping in.

*** FEEDBACK RULES: PLEASE READ ***

YOU SHOULD ONLY POST ONE REVIEW PER TRANSACTION IN THE GOOD GUY/BAD GUY THREAD.

That means positive or negative, leave ONLY ONE POST (even if there's a rebuttal from the other party). Keep your comments about the transaction ONLY and stay away from insults and inflammatory language or you may face putative measures.

RESOLVE YOUR DISPUTES OFF THE BOARD!

That means resolve your dispute via PM, email or phone, not in public view!

All sellers MUST include the expected delivery time, delivery method (USPS, FEDEX, UPS) and return policy (you can say "as is" or "no returns" if you like) but you MUST include your polciies in your post.

THIS SITE AND IT'S STAFF WILL NOT ASSIST YOU IN RESOLVING DISPUTES. IF YOUR WANT BUYER PROTECTION, GO TO EBAY.
