Exclamation Using the Marketplace - Please read before posting


Notes on Posting Items for Sale / Exchange or free.
Hamster Central, admin and the Moderators DO NOT accept any responsibility whatsoever for any sales, free items or exchanges of any type that are carried out on this forum between members of the forum and / or other outside parties. Transactions of any type are entirely at your own risk and if you are under 18 years old you must seek parental permission before committing to buy or sell or receive items.
The mod team, admin and Hamster Central DO NOT accept any liability for items or payments that are not received or items not received as described and members should satisfy themselves that any arrangement they enter into is understood and they are quite clear what they are buying / selling / receiving and what delivery costs will be before proceeding. You should not give out any personal details such as addresses and credit card details until entirely satisfied that you are happy with everything. Safe payment methods such as Paypal should be used.
Posting on this board is not allowed by members with less that 10 posts on the forum. This is not a 'join to sell' board and we expect you to make some contribution to the forum before using this facility.
Posting is NOT allowed by commercial sellers such as Pet shops and on line retailers.
All adverts must be for hamster or small animal related items. You may NOT advertise livestock here. They must be your own personal property or you must be the buyer. You may not post or buy for third parties. Other pet items or personal items are not allowed and will be removed. The opinions stated on these adverts are entirely the opinions of individual members and are not those of Hamster Central or its moderators or Admin. The moderators and admin reserve the right to edit, modify or completely remove adverts if deemed unsuitable with no prior warning or discussion. Posters should ensure the item is truthfully described with photos if possible and any faults clearly highlighted.
You may also post for articles wanted and the same terms apply for these.

All posts in the section will be closed to all apart from the original poster. Anyone interested in an item is to contact the seller directly by PM only. The seller can update the thread with extra information and post as to when the item is sold. Please only contact if you have a genuine and serious interest. You should not divulge the details to anyone and items should be sold on a first come first served basis should more than one person be interested.

We ask that all members using the for sale section use common sense and respect when doing so. Please do not post items for sale that you would not be happy to receive yourself and when buying from a member ensure that you trust the seller and have means of paying for the item before committing to buy. The seller should have means of receiving payment. Posting cash is not a safe method of payment. It is frustrating for sellers waiting for payments or buyers waiting for items, or receiving an item that is not as it was described and can cause bad feelings on the forum.
Sellers should clearly state postage costs and whether they are willing to post outside their own country. Remember postage costs are high and can add a lot on to the cost of a seeming 'bargain' item. You should get a proof of posting receipt from the mail office. Items paid for by cheque should not be dispatched until the cheque has cleared.
Please do not post links to other sites such as e bay or preloved. This is for personal transactions only.
We remind you again that all transactions are undertaken entirely at your own risk.
Any exchanges or sales that are carried out either on this board or privately off the boards via PM on this forum are entirely at your own risk and HC. admin and the mod team cannot accept any liability or responsibility for non payment or non receipt of items nor will they be involved in any mediation regarding such disputes.
Should this facilty cause any difficulties for any member it will be discontinued without notice.
