Recommended Posts

With the increase in popularity and use of the Buy & Sell section are some new features and guidelines to help keep things ordered and easy to find.

Selling
If you are selling an item please include the following information: 
Item / Brand of Item
Size (If it is a kite or board etc)
Year / Model
Location of Item (What State ?)
Price $

All sale items must have a price.
Topics with "PM Offers" or similar will be removed instantly. If you are selling an item please have an idea of what you expect to be paid for the item and include this in your Topic. If you are unsure what the item is worth then do some homework on the product you're selling then post it.

Wanted
If you are searching for a particular item or in search of an item to suit a purpose please be as informative and descriptive as possible. By spending the extra half a minute on your Topic providing more information it increases the likelihood of someone being able to fulfil your request.  If you're buying an item and have a budget in mind it may be beneficial to list a price range you're looking at.

eBay
All eBay related Topics that are linked to auctions must include a copy of the item description in the Topic. This helps members browsing to make a decision if they want to view the item listing or not.  Ebay listings withthout a description will be removed.

Shops & Retailers
You are welcome to create 1 Topic per month with your Clearance, Second Hand or Ex-Demo gear.  Please prefix your topic with "SHOP" so it's clear to our members that you're selling on behalf of your store.


General Buying And Selling Advice
Extreme Kites does not confirm, support or endorse any of the items in the "Buy & Sell" section. Therefor it is advised you take a few simple precautionary steps to ensuring that the items you are purchasing is as described, and to ensure arrival of your item. Extreme Kites will not enter into, or take part of any dispute arising from the trading of items through this site.

Buyers Advice
General Information
Ensure that you have enough information about the seller. How many posts have they made here on Extreme Kites ? Are they well known to other members on this site ? Ensure you have adequate contact details such as House Address, Email Address, Landline Telephone Number and some Identification.

Secure Payment
Try using a secure payment method when completing the transaction such as Paypal, Paymate and other similar services. If you are paying via Direct Deposit (DD) or Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) then ensure you have adequate details of the seller before you make the payment.

Insured Delivery
Make sure that your item is insured for delivery and request this of the seller. If an item is lost in transport it often falls on the Buyer's responsibility to have opted to insure the item for transport when seeking a refund for a lost item.

Sellers Advice
General Information
Ensure that you have enough information about the buyer. How many posts have they made here on Extreme Kites ? Are they well known to other members on this site ? Ensure you have adequate contact details such as House Address, Email Address, Landline Telephone Number and some Identification.

Secure Payment
Make your best efforts to offer a Secure Payment method. This works in your interests as a seller as it makes the sale of your item more appealing to buyers. This also protects you from fraudulent payments. Avoid giving your direct bank details if possible.

Insured & Confirmed Delivery
Confirm the delivery address of the buyer. If they ask you to deliver to another address such as their work / office etc ask to confirm the address and the name of the recipient. Always insure items you are sending. Should an item go missing in transport there is nothing worse then as a seller looking like you attempted to "rip someone off" etc through something that is out of your control. By insuring the item for those extra few dollars it shows that you have best intentions on delivering the item advertised. Offering insured delivery is another aspect that will increase your item's potential sale to a buyer.
