Welcome to the Sell Order forum. This is the place to post sell orders or host auctions.

  1. Only sales of In-Game items for In-Game ISK is permitted in this forum.*

  2. Threads started in this forum are for items that are For Sale or On Auction only.

  3. If you wish to auction an item, put [Auction] in your topic. For example, [Auction] Apocalypse.

  4. When a deal has been made, please post to the thread stating that the item is no longer for sale or auction.

    • Bumping is allowed only by the character who started the thread. Friendly or multiple bumps per day are not permitted. For services in which the original poster has left and not updated the thread for 30+ days, a new owner can take over the thread by filing a support ticket.

    • Bumping must consist of a real sentence, not simply the word "bump". For example: "Auction still open" is an acceptable bump.

    • Bumping may only be done once per calendar day.

    • More information can be found in the thread bumping guidelines located here.

  5. If you wish to sell several items at one time please put up one thread and do not start a new thread for each item.

  6. Price checks (PC): Please price check in the Price Checks forum where they belong.

  7. This forum is for selling items, you may reply to the threads with bids or questions regarding the item. All other posts are off topic and will be removed.

  8. Anti-competitive behavior and trolling: Where an auctioner has specified a minimum bid (minimum increments to place your bid by), bids not meeting this may be deleted. Bidders who are genuinely not interested to buy (i.e posting 1 isk bids) will have their bids deleted.

  9. Reselling for others: You may not sell or resell an item for a player that has been banned from the forums.

  10. You may not advertise, or post links to 3rd party or private run auctions on another site.

  11. Auctions

  12. - [AUCTION] tag in thread title
    - Starting/minimum bid
    - Minimum bid increment
    - Closing date and time.

    You may want to include:

    - Reserve price
    - Buyout price
    - Sniper rule
    - Item Location

  13. Sell Orders

  14. - [WTS] tag in thread title (short for Want To Sell or Would like To Sell).
    - Include item location
    - Quantity availble if applicable

  15. Services

  16. - [SERVICE] tag in thread title.

    If you are offering an industrial service such as hauling, mining or anything POS contract based you may post them here.
  17. Please do not take matters into your own hands if your thread needs moderation, please use the report function on the forums or file a petition under the categories Other and Forums.

  18. Trading is not binding, if one party does not honor an agreement made on these forums, ISD or CCP may not be able to help you.

  19. Scamming ETCs and character sales are not allowed, please petition if you suspect you have been scammed. When buying and selling characters, please note that by confirming the trade via EVEmail, you ensure that the facts of the matter are documented, should any later disputes arise that require GM attention.

  20. Questions may be asked in thread.

  21. For all other forms of scamming we refer you to the reimbursement-policy and this Knowledge Base article.

    This has been extended to include Characters, EVE Time Cards (ETCs), website hosting and voice chat services. Please use the sticky thread in OOPE to advertise signature services there. Please note that scamming for out of game services is not allowed; for more information see this post by GM Lelouch.

  22. Trading of Collector’s Edition codes and other promotional codes is not allowed.

Thread bumping guide
One bump per day seems too little to some users but that's the rules everyone must play by.
