MARKETPLACE SAFETY GUIDE
#1
Please use the at your own risk and read the below safety precautions when buying and selling in the Sneakerdon Marketplace.
 
While we are not liable for any transactions that occur within our site, we want to make sure you have the a safe experience buying/selling goods. We strive to be proactive in preventing fraud before it even happens.
 
The guidelines below will help reduce the chance of being defrauded by another member, and are required to be followed for any Marketplace transactions. We urge users to adhere, and we are unable to assist when they are not.
 
Payment methods: Only use Paypal or perform meet-ups. Never send money order, cash, wire, or anything else.
 
Paypal: Do not send or receive Paypal payments as a gift - doing so defrauds Paypal and prevents a dispute from being filed later. Check your Paypal account to make sure the payment was received; spoofed emails are common.
 
Shipping: Make sure you properly pack the item to prevent damage during shipping. For shoes, ship double boxed. Make sure Signature or Delivery Confirmation is added to every shipment.
 
Used items: Understand that pre-owned items, especially shoes, are especially risky to purchase. Get as many pictures as possible and a complete description of the item. Understand that these items are sold "as-is" within the Marketplace. Disputes over the condition of used items is considered "he-said-she-said" and are not considered.
 
Pictures: Receive tagged pictures of all angles of the product with flaws explicitly stated. When you receive your end of the transaction, immediately take pictures of the item and packaging for reference.
 
Meet-ups: Make sure you meet in a public place (the mall, for instance), and do not exchange goods unless you are 100% satisfied. Count the money in person. Once you walk away from the meetup, you are signalling satisfaction.
 
Feedback: Only deal with high feedback users.
 
Contact: Only use the Offer Discussion for exchanging information. Never use email, private messages, text, phone, etc. for communicating any transaction details. Doing so eliminates a paper trail and makes it more difficult for us to help.
 
Faith: Never believe a user who swears they a€™re €œnot a scammer. Everyone, including a scammer, would say the same thing.
 
Extra TIP you can use
 
 
FS] – FOR SALE
[FT] – FOR TRADE
[WTB] – WANT TO BUY
[WTT] – WANT TO TRADE
 
1. All items must be shown to be in your possession with a legible hand-written sign with your username.
2. If your listing is deleted or you have any questions, please contact a moderator and
3. You can only bump your sale thread once every 24 hours.
 
Be cautious when trading items. There is no way to guarantee a member will ship trade items out as negotiated.
 
When completing transactions with other users, take screenshots of the negotiations as well as the Paypal payment screens. Always pay the 4% Paypal fee, if you send money as a gift to get around your fee, you will have no options to be refunded for transactions.
