AD PLACEMENT GUIDELINES
 

- One item per ad, unless the items are being sold as a lot
- No commercial ads, unless you have prepaid for advertising
- “For profit” selling is not allowed (eg don’t buy something cheap on eBay with the intent of re-selling it here for more)
-  Always include a price when selling an item
- Don’t re-post the same ad more than once every five days
- As a courtesy to other users, maximum 5 ads per 24 hr period
- Don’t post an ad with disparaging remarks towards an individual or a business
- Don’t exceed three lines of text in the preview description of your ad
- Don’t capitalize every letter in the preview description of your ad
- Remember to choose a category from the pull-down menu. This facilitates searches by category
- Remember to enter your location in the ad. This facilitates searches by location
- Don’t post an advert that says “email me for a list of items I am selling”. You must list the items in the ad
- Don't advertize items you're selling elsewhere, rather enter your advert here. (e.g. don't advertize your eBay ads here)
- Don’t state things like “I paid $xxx at XYZ telescope shop”, rather state “the item retails for $xxx”
- Don’t sell on behalf of others, sell only your own equipment
- "For trade" ads must be only for astronomy equipment
- Donít ask buyers to pay via Paypal "family and friends" to avoid PayPal's fees as this is against Paypal policy, and invalidates PayPal's purchase protection
