Trading Bazaar Basics

Welcome to the Trading Bazaar. We highly recommended that you read this FAQ first.

Your user account MUST have 5 posts to use the Trading Bazaar

Q. What is the Trading Bazaar?
A. It’s for buying/selling & trading items by BoLS Lounge members.

Q .What kind of items can I buy/sell/trade.
A. Any item related to the wargaming hobby, the guide we are using if it’s available from any major gaming retailer sush as Warstore, or Wayland Games then it’s OK to post. The state of the item is not important, it can be painted, still in its box etc.. as long as you make this clear in your thread.

NOTE: Any illegal items or materials that break Intellectual Property or copyright laws will be removed immediately and action taken against the user posting them.(I.e. no castings of original models or pirated materials.)

Q. But my items are not sold by a major gaming retailer?
A. Then ask a Admin or Mod first, if you don’t and it’s not suitable don’t be surprised if your thread is removed.

Q. My item is OK to post, where should I post it?
A. The ‘For Sale’ forum is the most common forum, this where you place items you wish to sell or trade. The Wanted forum is for members seeking specific items.

Q. What should I include in my post?

A. Well the more information the better some essential items are:-
  • A full description of the item in question including its status (assembled, primed etc).
  • A picture is always a good idea (not more than a couple though please).
  • If a item is fully painted despite what you may think about it do not use the words ‘pro-painted’ let the paint-job talk for itself.
  • What you would like for the item (i.e. $cash or items in trade).
  • Your location and where you are willing to ship to.
Q. Can I post a link to my Ebay auction?

A. Yes you can but ensure your thread title mentions this i.e. Ebay - Space Marine army for sale.

Q. OK I’ve posted my ad, why is no-one replying straight away?
A. Patience young one - do not expect immediate answers and trades, if you are looking for a quick sale then somewhere like Ebay might be better for you. Please don't bump your thread until at least 24 hours have past and don't continually bump the thread.

Q. Can I put a link to my thread in my Signature?
A. No, please keep all mentions of trading activities constrained to the Trading Bazaar sub forums.

Q. OK someone has replied to my thread and wants to trade, what should I do now?
A. Well you should sort it out between yourselves using the Private Messaging system, make sure you are both satisfied that all details are sorted out before despatching any items.

Q. Can I check to see if the person I’m trading with is a bit ‘dodgy’
A. Not really no all trades are at your own risk but there is a Bad Trader Thread and Good Trader Thread where members post feedback, you can check that first.

Q. Something has gone wrong and I didn’t receive my items/$cash will the BoLS Lounge give me replacements?
A. No all trades are at your own risk, BoLS, the BoLS Lounge and its staff accept no responsibility, however we will do our best to help you out in case of any problems. If you do have a problem please raise a thread in our helpdesk. NOTE: All member information is covered by the Data Protection Act so we will not give out private information.

Q. OK my trade/sale has gone through fine, anything else I should do?
A. Don’t forget to leave feedback on the Good Trader Thread - please be honest but not petty.
