To reinforce what the site terms state, this classifieds system is "use at your own risk".
You must be a Subscriber to post classified ads, subscription information can be found by clicking here. Members are still welcome to browse ads and contact ad owners regarding items.
In this particular category posting ads linking back to Ebay auctions or any other system outside of the APUG classifieds is allowed.
Transactions facilitated by the classifieds are arrangements between the seller and the purchaser, and the terms of sale are a matter to be determined by those participants. While the community norm is to keep things simple--the seller names a price, and the buyer pays the price--there are no rules prohibiting calls for "best offer" just as there is no prohibition against potential buyers making offers lower than the advertised price. If sellers want to structure the sale in some other creative way, as long as it is not disruptive to the forum, it is up to potential buyers to accept or reject the terms of sale.
Persons not interested in a particular transaction are asked to refrain from interfering with classified sales by commenting unnecessarily. If you believe that an ad violates the rules, please use the "report thread" button (the triangle with the exclamation mark) to notify the moderators. Do not comment in the thread. If you believe that an item is overpriced, then that is a matter for the seller to figure out when it doesn't sell.
APUG does not endorse agreements that violate international customs laws and regulations or the terms of service of any external payment service used to facilitate sales through the classifieds.
The proceeds of sales in this particular classifieds go to APUG.ORG. On receiving the funds a notice will be placed in the forum so the community can be assured the purchase went to APUG.
