  • Warning - Beware of cheap laptops being advertised

    Hi All

    Please take care when dealing with new users to forum advertising cheap laptops, they may be scammers looking to conclude deals off the site. If they ask you to PM them, please do so with caution, we cannot help you if you transact off the site with these people.

    Kind regards

      Hi Trade Route Mall,

      He is disabled for now, so wait till he is enabled again, and please remind him that all sales have to go through bob and not in PM's on the forum.

      Thank you.

          This same user tried to sell me Robotech DVDs through the PM system. He said he will only list the items if I agreed to purchase (in dollars too!). Surely this is against the rules.

                reseller of cheap product looking for support

                HI bidorbuy community.

                I have been selling online for some time now . I have my own website , i have a fully verified paypal account for years ....

                I just start selling now on bid or buy . Like so how can i prove to bidorbuy community that i am a legit seller.

                I got happy because i thought bid or buy was acting like a escrow service and keep money until my clients received the product.

                I am happy with that . But am i thinking right or please someone can help me . I want to start slow and gain trust of people ..but how can i do this . I have very good products at very good prices and i think i could also help people to get cheap products.

                I am a honest person and dont like to prejudicate other people.

                Can someone help me and point me in the righ direction please.

                  The right direction is to the exit, we do not allow links to outside sites here.

                      Welcome to the forum, alvaroqueirosa64.

                      It is so important for sellers (and buyers) to read all the rules of Bid or Buy before posting their info on the forum or in the ads as it is not allowed.

                      Please stay with BoB if you intend selling on the site - it's the best in the country if not in the world - and you will get all the help you can possibly need. But it is important to follow all the rules. Good luck with your sales.-
