(jump to the Rules or Repercussions)
Selling here at the Clubhouse is a priveldge,
not a right.
It is reserved for those who are active members that
actually contribute to the community.
This place was created as a place to talk kits, show off
work, and get help.
The selling came later and is not what this place is
It is secondary.
And will always be that way. So, please keep that in mind
when conducting business here.
Only those who have the
'Registered Seller' designation are allowed to post items
for sale, or auction listings.
In order to be given that designation, you must be an active and participating
member of The Clubhouse.
That means, you must be a member for at least 90 days
and you have a minimum 200 posts. These
must not be meaningless posts, nor just a chunk of one
liners made in rapid succession over the course of a few
Once you meet those minimum
requirements, you may submit your profile information (as
listed below) so that we know a little about you.
Seller Profile Info must include:
Clubhouse Member Name (Login Name)
Full legal Name
Ebay ID (if applicable)
Contact the Administrators to submit your information.
This information will not be
publicly posted, sold, nor given out to anyone... It will
be used by the Clubhouse Administrators to contact you in
the event of a problem...
Until you receive email confirmation from us,
you will not be allowed to sell on this forum.
Once we have received your background info, we will
review your profile and make sure the requirements are
met, then change your profile rank to reflect your
Registered Seller status.
Depending on current workload for the staff, this could
take anywhere from an hour, to a few days.
Please be patient.
This confirmation process only needs to be done once and
will remain in effect as long as you are a member, or
until you change one of the Items on your contact
We require this so that we know
anyone attempting to sell in the Clubhouse has some time
invested, it's to prevent folks for joining only to sell
their wares, as that is most definitely NOT what this community is all about.
NO THIRD PARTY
SELLING. You cannot
serve as an agent or proxy for another seller. You must
be the direct seller in order to post the sales
announcement. The only exception is if you are an
official reseller of another producer's product, under
which you are considered the direct seller. Or, if you
have prior approval from staff to act as a direct seller
on another person's behalf.
COMMISSIONS ARE ALLOWED !
We have had nothing but trouble with these type of
activities in the past and do not wish to deal with them
Along those lines -
If you want to do a presale, then you have to at least
have a nearly completed sculpt. That way our members can
see exactly what they are putting their money towards.
PRICING MUST BE
INCLUDED IN THE ORIGINAL POST. It is difficult for people to buy
something if they don't know how much it is. If you want
to sell here, then all the information has to be posted
here. No just asking for best offer in the swap and sell.
No just saying 'message me for details' in the new kits
section. If you want to sell it, put a price on it.
Only exceptions are one-of-a-kind-items like molds,
sculpts, casting rights, or commission work.
Non-model related items posted for sale should be cleared
with a Moderator first.
The Clubhouse or it's Staff are not
responsible for the transactions that take place on the
Swap & Sell or the New Kits Available forums.
Anything bought and sold via the forums are strictly done
"At your own risk"
Any sales post not updated within
30 days of the original posting date may be
deleted. So please keep your posts updated if you
wish to still offer a particular Item or Items for sale.
Once deleted, those posts are gone for good, so please be
mindful and keep track of your sales posts.
Keep in mind, if problems arrise,
and members are not satisfied, the Clubhouse will have
the right to take action to try to correct these
problems. These actions include, but are not
Contacting you to see what exactly is going on, and how
they intend to be corrected.
Locking any threads you may have listing things for sale.
Removing your registered seller status.
Giving you the "Seller Non-Grata" tag. (you remain a member but warns
not to buy from you)
Giving you the "Slow Seller"
tag. (you've never ripped anyone off, but it could be a
long wait for goods)
Suspending your account entirely.
Banning you from The Clubhouse.
Keep in mind, if you
don't follow through on your end, we are not going to
hide the complaints.
As long as they do not break board rules, and the one
lodging the complaint contacts us first and clears it.
I am tired of hearing about sellers who take money and
take months or years to deliver what people have paid
for. All the while, not bothering to respond to questions
from those same customers.
Our first priority is to protect our members, not the
reputations of questionable businessmen.
