Selling/Trading/Buying Forum

Any thoughts on making a sales forum? In a smaller community like this, it would be great to trade/sell/buy from people we get to know.

I know things like r/avexchange exist, but you are dealing with complete strangers there and I feel like there is more risk involved.

Thought I would bump this up and see what others think.

I feel it’s a great idea. It is so hard to trust the open market when listing audiophile gear. I’d love to have an option to be a part of a forum where I can trade up some of my gear for different models out there.
Thanks for considering this platform! :blush:

I agree. This was my biggest hope when I saw this new forum: a community with active trading/selling of gear without worrying about knockoffs and ripoffs as much.

I think it’s a great idea. Some thought would have to be put into writing the guidelines. Things like no thread crapping, put a good faith effort to resolve any differences before posting complaints, caveat emptor, no illegal transactions (duh), required contents of for sale threads, no bumping your own for sale thread, and so on.

@ZeosPantera @DMS any update on this?

Since part of the goal to this entire “guide” was to direct sales after an informed decision and to have a place to exchange information, I would also be willing to pay a “use/sales fee” (in a trade sale forum) and properly register my personal information with the site owners, to help alleviate the potential for scam and con artist attempts to infiltrate a used/trade/sale forum section. If you allow us to use your site to sell trade our own items with members whom we interact with regularly i see no problem with the site owners profiting, thus We are able to support their expenses in maintaining this community.
Just my opinion.
