Welcome to The Marketplace. The Marketplace system is a pretty straightforward system, so here are the general instructions into using our system. Keep in mind that as we go along, the marketplace will get more features, which will be added in this thread. Viewing How do I check for items? Each item will be posted by the trader in its own thread. You'll notice that each thread will have a label prefix, that defines the type of trade and the server. The labels are: WTB - Want to Buy WTS - Want to Sell WTT - Want to Trade For each of these labels you'll see a corresponding EU or US, depending on the mega server. If you want to filter all trades by WTB - US for example, you just have to click on the label and the forum will be filtered like this: We're gonna add more filters as we go along but at the moment, this will serve as a good basic start. Feedback You'll notice that in every thread located in the Marketplace, each trader will have 3 colored boxes in its member card (under the avatar). Also, each member will get his own trading stats tab under his Profile Page (image below). Each of these boxes represent: greeen - number of positive feedback received red - number of negative feedback received grey - neutral feedback Let's take Laz for example. Laz is a suspicious seller and he already received one negative feedback, as you can see from the trading thread: If we want to further check the trader, let's see what was the feedback about. Clicking on the negative feedback, will get us to Laz's general trade page: As you can see, we can click on the feedback, see what's all about and visit the deal thread (in case you're checking Laz's trade profile from his profile page). The same applies to every feedback received. Keep in mind that you can't leave any feedback if you didn't replied to that thread in any way. Also, when leaving feedback you have to choose: - your role - feedback type - the trade url (thread link) - feedback info Creating a sale/trade Creating a trade, it's a pretty simple process and involves the following (as seen in the images below): - choosing the right forum category for the sale (ex. Weapons) - adding the correct trade label and server (ex. WTS - US, WTB -EU etc) - choosing the correct variables for the auction as following: - Server: EU or US (for future filtering purposes) - Platform: PC/Mac, Xbox One, PS4 - In-Game Contact: char name or id for contacting the seller/buyer in-game - Starting Bid: the starting bid for the action (numerical only) - Price: the buyout price (numerical only) Some of the variables are mandatory, such as Server and Platform while others are optional. We STRONGLY advise to create a detailed auction by completing all the necessary fields and descriptions. If you don't, users will have a hard time seeing your wares. We're pushing more and more filters/variables as we go along so keep in mind that this thread is a rather brief explanation of the system. You can also FREE BUMP your sales once per 24hrs using the "Bump" link at the bottom of your thread post. Once the sale ended, you can LOCK the thread using the Thread Tools dropdown menu from the upper right part of the thread (near Unwatch Thread) checking the "Open" option. Mediators Soon, we're adding mediators to the marketplace to further prevent scams. The mediators will help you in your trades (if you request their services) for free, for a Elite Gold fee or in-game gold fee. Each mediator will have its own Feedback, as every other trader. Disputes All the disputes will be handled off-thread, by submitting a PM to @TEdisputes. The PM must include detailed informations about your problem, including screenshots with the possible conversations you have with the buyer/seller. If you feel that somebody left you an unfair negative feedback, use the same contact information. Rules and Policies 1. Don't try to scam people - you're be banned on the forums permanently and reported in-game 2. Don't create fake auctions 3. Try to be as descriptive as you can in your auctions, users have the right to report you if they find your activities fishy. 4. Behave, even when you bargain. 5. The trades will have as currency ONLY IN-GAME GOLD. Any other type of currency used (including Elite Gold), will get your thread insta-deleted. Abusing this will get you a ban. As always, if you have any feedback or bugs, please use this thread. Thanks!
