Very simply put it is our intent to create a "safe haven" to buy, sell and trade equipment. Our Buy / Sell / Trade section will be strictly managed. There are rules that need to be followed.

**Please note trading, buying, and selling is done at your own risk.  YoYoExpert.com cannot be held responsible for a bad trade or sale through this message board.

NOTE: As of 7/12/2015 Pics are no longer required.
Pics are strongly encouraged when both trading and selling. Responsibility for providing and requesting pics belongs to those involved in the transaction.

   1. MANDATORY! - Items MUST BE IN YOUR POSSESSION.  
   2. No e-bay links in the B/S/T unless you are the seller and add the sale price or trade equivalent.
   3. No negative comments regarding sellers asking prices.
   4. No selling of questionable goods.  (i.e.: No items that are age-restricted, nothing illegal, no weapons.)
   5. Yo-yos - Please state whether original or altered and the exact state of the yo-yo including any marks, cracks, or issues with the yo-yo.
   6. Bumping Rules
- Please only bump your post once a day. There is no reason to bump it more. If you do it's not letting others get their thread noticed.
- Posts are now sorted by Date of Topic Creation.
- Sellers must combine their Ads and cannot post new Ads unless their previous Ad is Closed or deleted.
- Repeated improper Reposting of Ads can warrant suspension of forum rights.
   7. Please move your thread to Archived Trades by clicking "MOVE TOPIC" towards the bottom left once the item(s) is sold, traded, or no longer available.Remember to UNCHECK the box that says "Post a redirection topic."
   8. Please provide all relevant contact information between both parties involved in a BST transaction.
   9.  You are allowed one BST thread. This thread may contain any combination of items you are selling, trading, and/or looking for.
   10. Use the "Report" button (even on your own listing) if help is needed with an ad or a rules violation is observed.
   11. After a successful trade (or unsuccessful trade) please provide feedback to the buyer via the trade feedback section under their profile.
   12. This is not a place to ask for "Free Stuff."  Messages made here asking for free items will be removed.
   13. Please, if you have an item that someone wants, don't say you have one but aren't getting rid of it. Don't even mention it unless you are willing to part with it.
   14. If using paypal, You must include the 4% paypal fee in the price before hand. You can't sell a yoyo for $80 and then add the 4%.
   15. Selling yo-yos that are considered 'Boot-Legs' or 'Exact-Copies' or are 'patent infringing' with yo-yos sold in the USA are not allowed. These posts will be removed and regular posting of them can result in a ban.  This is at the discretion of the YoYoExpert moderators to decide if a yo-yo is a bootleg or copy.
   16. Please make an effort to leave feedback. The exception to this is face to face deals with friends or relatives. In this case no feedback is warranted.
   17. The Buy/Sell/Trade is not for manufacturers or people who are working as a reseller or manufacturer of their own product or a product bought in quantity from somewhere else.  One of a kind yo-yos or mods are understandable to trade on the forums but if you are trying to sell large quantities of specific product this is not the place to do it.  If you want to discuss this with us (or possibly bringing your product for sale on YoYoExpert) feel free to contact YoYoExpert: Contact@YoYoExpert.com

More updates.

When you see an item you want to try to get, Please PM that person. It's better to pm them than it is to clog up their thread with offers!


Thanks

It has come to my attention that there are a  few members that are leaving feedback with people that they didn't even trade with. This is not acceptable.

IF YOU DO NOT TRADE, BUY OR SELL TO SOMEONE YOU CANNOT LEAVE THEM FEEDBACK!

Rule update.

Please don't post things like "PM sent Wink" as it bumps the thread.

I think you'll find the best way to contact a seller/trader is via PM but telling him/her you've done so isn't necessary.

Thanks. Smiley

We need to clarify this...

Quote
...items MUST BE IN YOUR POSSESSION

Don't offer something in trade unless you have it in your possession. Doesn't matter if it's in the mail or a pending trade with someone else. If you don't have it in hand, don't offer it for trade.

There have been a few cases recently where people traded something they have coming to them, When it arrives it's not in the condition advertised, but the guy goes ahead and sends it off to the next guy anyway. Then the next guy in line is unhappy because the first guy sent him a yoyo that was not in the condition he expected.

You need to have the yoyo in your physical possession to initiate a trade.

Leaving feedback...

Please note, if you are doing a face to face (in person) trade with someone, please do not leave feedback in the profile or the feedback section. A trade with friends or relatives does not involve the same risk as doing a long distance trade via mail. There is no risk involved with a face to face trade and feedback is not warranted.

Biggest change:
NOTE: As of 7/12/2015 Pics are no longer required. Pics are strongly encouraged when both trading and selling. Responsibility for providing and requesting pics belongs to those involved in the transaction.


Also people should be able to move their old topics to the archived section. Remember to UNCHECK the box that says "Post a redirection topic." Please use it.

There are other changes. Please review them: Buy / Sell / Trade RULES - MANDATORY

How to Archive your topic:

At the bottom, left hand side of a topic there is a tab that says "Move Topic".
- Click that tab and a popup opens.
- At the top of the popup there is a dropdown menu,  select ARCHIVED TRADES.
- There is a check box in the popup that says "Post a redirection topic."
- Uncheck the box.
- Click the "Move Topic" button in the popup.
- You're done.
