I don't think so, but that would have been a really good idea.

I am not exactly sure what "selling via PM" means, either. We will get an answer for you though. But of course the PayPal addy and other details of the transaction would be exchanged through PM, same as they are now.

This is still being discussed and we will get an answer to you soon.

If you are an approved seller and someone wants to buy your item, then you will just proceed as normal with the transaction.

20 feedback, and everyone will have to apply, but those w/ 20 feedback and 30 posts and 30 days membership will get a swift approval. I don't know yet what will happen to any of the current FSOT threads.

It won't be available until Monday.

Yes.

Some people will be able to be approved that first day, if they meet the grandfathering qualifications.

Sometimes, I'm looking through there and see something I have that I'd be willing to sell, but I didn't actually have it for sale and listed. It sounds like I'm not allowed to PM that person to let them know I have what they are looking for. I had no idea. I thought that was kind of the purpose of the ISO threads. Did I miss something?

Can a mod or admin clarify this for us, please?
We don't know yet what the plans are for the ISO forum but will clarify it when we do.

If you have your 20 feedbacks by 11/1 then you will be grandfathered in (but will still need to apply). If you get your 20th feedback on 11/2 or later, then you will need to be verified.

I will explain the selling via pm's.
That means if your not an approved seller and you sell something to another member via pm, something goes wrong, we will no longer be dealing with it as that is the risk for not following the rules and becoming approved before selling/transactions and allowing us make sure everyone is legit/verified. HTH

SO that means that we can still do ISO....trades etc through PM's but it is up to us to make sure the person we are working with is verified so we would be covered by the rules??? Is that right? Is it going to be listed next to our username or somewhere so we can tell easily that we are legit??

ETA: Sorry I misread your question.

If someone PMs you for your ISO yes you should be sure they are verified. We are working on all verified sellers having a button or something (like the site supporter) so you can easily tell.

Re: You can't sell via PM? Clarifaction please?

So people who are being grandfathered in will get "swift" approval...but what about the postcards mentioned in the announcement? Sounded like we'll all have to wait on the postcards to arrive in the mail to finish the approval process. Or are those for people who don't meet the qualifications too?

The postcards will be for people who are not grandfathered in.

Like Andrea said, postcard is for those not grandfathered in.

Oh, and it is a phone call OR a postcard in order to verify those not grandfathered in.

I know for me, I plan on mixing it up between the two
