Terms Of Use <-- Required Reading Before You Buy/sell Items Here!!

Recommended Posts

BassResource Terms of Use for the Fishing Flea Market forum

Please note that this forum is provided as a service to our members, and not for businesses or "ebay'rs", that is, the continual buying and selling with the intent of making a buck or two. It's a garage-sale of sorts, and nothing more. If a member has something every once in awhile they want to get rid of, then that's fine. But if somebody is here to buy/sell as a matter of common practice, then no, that is frowned upon.

This is designed to be a "garage sale" and nothing more. If you are here simply to sell items, or trying to buy/sell items as a second income, running a type of business such as a store (online or offline), eBay or Craiglist items, or anything deemed commercial in nature, or are buying & selling as a matter of common practice - you may be asked to leave. Exception for businesses are given to BassResource.com advertisers only.

If you feel this doesn't apply to your enterprise (e.g. you're not a "business", you're non-profit, etc.), you're wrong.  There are no circumstances that exempt you. Do not send an e-mail, PM, or post about it to challenge or question this rule. It is not open to debate.

Users who consistently sell items - especially new items - will be asked to leave.  Anyone who sells here without participating in the forums will be sent packing without warning.

Please note: Be cautious of sellers selling new items. While in the minority, there are people out there who steal/shoplift items and then sell them online. You could inadvertantly contribute to their crime, and could be prosecuted as a result (not by us, but by the authorities). Be advised the Flea Market is designed to be more of a garage sale for existing members, who want to sell or trade items they no longer use. Any transaction outside of that definition must be treated with caution.

In addition to the rules and terms outlined in our FAQ's, privacy policy, and copyright notice, you agree to abide by the following:

1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
