If you are the topic starter and are selling or buying please update the topic straight away if you do a deal via PM. It can be upsetting to find out you missed out although you posted first on the forum. Make it clear to everyone what's going on please. Do not post in for sale or wanted topics if you have no interest in buying or selling. The items you are selling must be owned by you and ready for sale. No auction style adds. You must state a price for your item. Trade members are very welcome on this forum but please note that the classified Ads section is for private Ads Only.

Make sure that both you and the seller are aware of any clearing period, i.e. the time it will take for the payment to clear. If you can, get a receipt or other form of proof of payment.
