Revised/Updated Rules : Overclock.net Marketplace - Page 2

post #11 of 30
If a member follows the rules and does not pay as a gift he always can fall back on the PayPal policy that the product must be shipped 7 days after the seller recieves his money.I was hoping to reduce the number of PayPal claims by some shipping regulations from the marketplace.I see this is not going to happen.Late shipping is my #1marketplace issue.I have had sellers pocket my money and then say "Oh that sale,it is not the most important thing going on in my life".A PayPal claim does get their attention.Comments about late shipping can continue to be place in seller trader rating.I have experienced the same interest expressed by Enterprise from other marketplace mods,late shipping is just not an issue to them.Do not gift and use your PayPal tools.

The fact is we do not offer protection such as Paypal does. Again, it is at Buyers and Sellers risk and due to that it is always in the best interest of users to use protected forms of payment like Paypal on any website, not just OCN. It is not that we are not ''Interested'' but it comes down to an important singular fact, we are not a dedicated marketplace. We make it as safe as we possibly can but it is a two way street and users should also be taking acceptable precautions. As you say, Paypal offers the late shipper protection and users should fall back upon that if it becomes an issue. As we are not a a core marketplace, we cannot be expected to offer all the services Ebay/Paypal offer. We are a casual marketplace used at the risk of the members, it is very important to remember that. smile.gif

Liking the rules, although I suck at updating my threads, lol.

Out of curiosity, will digital resale ever be a viable option? I understand not selling Steam/Origin accounts and the like, but literally all of the software I own I bought digitally. I'm not sure if any of the companies I've purchased from would allow resale in particular, but say one did, it's perfectly legal to sell the item.... couldn't there be a process setup for such sales?

Generally speaking all Digital software is either bound to a single user by a non transferable license. Or is bound by EULA/TOS to be for the use of only the original purchasing customer, hence why we do not allow it. IF digital resellers starting allowing the transfers of digital content to new/second users the we may consider updating the rules, but that is dependant on a few factors and would be looked at on a case by case basis with regards to each Digital reseller practises.

What is the reasoning behind not being able to sell game keys and game keys that you get with other purchases like graphics cards? For instance, I have a key that came with my card, it doesn't say promotional only and it doesn't say not for resale. Just wondering why this change was made.

Bump.
95% of listings being created are being removed due to having no photos of the item(s) with name and date.

I would expect the interest OCN has in not being said to be running a etailer marketplace is related to future issues of sales tax collection. Being forced to collect sales tax is something OCN should want to stay far away from.

OCN wouldn't be liable for collecting sales tax from etailers, eBay is not responsible for sales tax from companies, the companies are responsible for paying/collecting their own taxes (unless this is changing in the future?)

The reason is the marketplace is for members to get rid of their own gear, if a company wants to sell here they must join the vendor partner program.

EDIT: requiring a picture of a cpu needs some explaining.Must all numbers on the cpu be visible.How about cpus that have been polished and all numbers are gone? In short,who does not know what a cpu looks like if you are not going to require numbers are visible
I just saw this edit, the photo isn't to show what the item looks like (of course more photos the better I say), it is to prove you have the item in your possession on the day you create the listing.

With this post BUMP, I am still deleting a lot of listings and PMing members for not following these rules.

You must be pretty busy Bitemarks tongue.gif

Should make a notice in red on the main page or something of that nature.

Bitemarks,you kind of missed my point.Here it is:If OCN ran a true "estore" I could see some US States wanting to get some tax money from the individual sales between members.As long as OCN keeps it an "informal marketplace" they are probably safer from being told to collect sales tax.Things are changing in the estore sales tax area.

EDIT: If cpu numbers do not need to be visible then you could show a picture of any old cpu (keep it fuzzy and no one has a chance to tell what you are showing).The cpu picture requirement has a bunch of holes in it.
