Quickstart guide - Please read BEFORE trading on TSF

The information below is taken from this link: https://thesilverforum.com/topic/19287-quickstart-guide-please-read-this-basic-info-before-trading/

I can’t see the "start new topic" button - Can I list an item for sale? 


Yes you can. In order to stop spam on the forum a minimum amount of posts are required before you can post items for sale in the trade section. Although the amount of posts is not disclosed it is a very small number, we suggest that you introduce yourself in the welcome new members section if you haven’t done so already. Alternatively upgrading to Premium Membership will give you immediate access to list items for sale.

Trading limits**:

Premium members can list an unlimited amount of trade listings in the Buy, Sell, Trade section.

Standard members can list 1 trade listing per 30 days.

All Premium Member groups can post an unlimited amount of listings. To upgrade to Premium Membership please  see: https://thesilverforum.com/store/category/2-premium-membership/

Insurance - sending precious metals items in the UK
Just so everyone is aware, the standard £50 insurance on Royal Mail signed for does not cover precious metals items such as coins etc as they are classed as money. Please send via Royal Mail special delivery if you would like your items insured, they will be insured by default up to £500 but you can increase this if needed. Sellers please also clarify in your listing who assumes responsibility if item is sent by an uninsured delivery service and lost (It is assumed that the buyer assumes responsibility as they are choosing the shipping method, but it is also good idea to state this in your listing) Information correct as far as we are aware and at time of writing, however it is advisable to check on the Royal Mail website. https://www.royalmail.com

For sale listings

All topics listing items for sale must state an asking price. (Apart from when you are solely looking to exchange, then please state your asking exchange)

Topics listed in UK & Europe section are for items located within this area. For items located in other areas please use the appropriate other trade forums.

Including a photo of your items for sale is very useful, it is also helpful, especially for new members, to include a piece of paper with the date and your forum username on it in the photo.
