Classifieds - Early Q & A's

Recommended Posts

Please see below for some answers for the early questions being asked about the new Classifieds system.  We have introduced this to try and improve the experience for both buyers and sellers.  All sales and trades remain open only to trusted members with 50 posts or more and the platform remains free to use.

I can't 'bump' my sales post?

When any advert is set up, a topic is automatically created in the sales, trade or wanted forum with all of the details included.  These forums are read only but the seller will see a 'bump' button at the top of their topic - this is enabled to allow 1 bump every 24 hours.

Topics are automatically created containing all of the details included in the sellers advert, with a link to the advert itself.

I can't comment on my advert or topic in the sales forum

Buyers and sellers should conduct any product questions via the Questions section on the advert.  This means all potential buyers will see the answers and avoid the seller having to answer the same thing multiple times.  Notifications are sent when questions are asked and answered.

Making offers

Potential buyers can easily submit offers if the seller has enabled offers on their advert instead of using the PM system.  If the seller has not enabled offers on their advert, potential buyers can use the Contact Seller button on the advert.  The seller has the ability to receive communications via the PM system or other channels like email, text, whatsapp, etc if they wish.  Notifications are sent when offers are made or accepted.

Buyers can make an offer and view offers they have already made.

Making an offer is easy

Viewing and accepting offers made for your item is easy too.

A seller can specify additional contact details when setting up their advert.  Emails will be sent via the forum.

 

I cant update my advert to say a deal is pending or it has been sold

Once an offer has been accepted, your advert will be automatically updated to show a deal is pending and no further offers will be allowed.  Once payment has been made, the seller is then able to update their advert to be completed.  If the pending deal is cancelled, the seller can also cancel the deal and set it back to being for sale.

Once an offer is accepted, you can then complete the deal (once sold) or cancel the deal.
pending.JPG
Items are automatically updated to 'pending' once an offer is accepted
completedlist.JPG
Items are automatically updated to 'completed' when the advert is updated too

 

Members can't advertise a price reduction

Members can adjust the price of their item at any time by editing the advert and updating the price.  The seller can also add to the item description to inform potential buyers of he old / new price

The advert owner can edit the advert using the 'advert actions' option

Looks like the last bump on your Omega was 21 hours ago so, hopefully, the button will appear for you in about 3 hours time.

Just a headsup @Krispy - no button has appeared, 25 hours plus since last bump.

OK - I think that's a formatting issue from copying and pasting that table from another webpage.  It's copied all the HTML from the TF site which isn't responsive to different screen sizes, like mobiles and tablets (would look crappy on this site which is responsive) and will get messed around with by our CSS.

This is what was actually pasted:

<table align="center" border="0" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" style="border:1px solid rgb(195,195,195);font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12px;color:rgb(0,0,0);" width="80%">

It would look better like this:

The old forum style will be removed eventually. We are working a way to bump in the advert. As soon as we get this resolved then everything will be much more simple. We will get there and I thank you all for your support and patience.
