View Full Version : Major Changes to Traders on Amibay.

10th December 2013, 19:30
Ladies and Gents,
Amibay has always had difficulty with how we handle specific members who have a Commercial Operation based around our hobby. However, the Admin staff have reached a consensus and are pleased to announce the following;

Private Traders

The Private Trader membership designation is scrapped. All current Private Traders will be reverted to Amibayers, and invited to accept Commercial Vendor status if they feel it is appropriate.

Commercial Vendors

Commercial Vendors are now permitted to buy items from other members for their personal use only. They will make a declaration to that affect to the Staff, and will then be free to buy and sell as they wish.
However, recognising that some may be uncomfortable with selling to someone known to be a trader, no member will be obligated to sell to a Commercial Vendor. They simply have to tell a moderator that they do not want to sell to the Commercial Vendor, and wish to pass to the next in line. All Commercial Vendors will be aware of this caveat.

The rules have been amended to reflect this HERE (http://www.amibay.com/misc.php?do=cfrules&cfrset=2)

We hope that this will make things simpler and easier for all members. If anyone has any questions or comments, please feel free to ask.
