MARKETPLACE USAGE GUIDELINES

The following guidelines are now in effect. Over some period of time these may be modified or expanded.

As of now, dealers are allowed to post here as long as all guidelines are respected.

Note that BUYERS AND SELLERS HAVE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR TRANSACTIONS. We will not resolve disputes, and purchases and sales are done at your own risk.

For Sale – Threads may be removed for failure to comply, and repeated issues could result in strikes.

  1. Books must be CGC or raw only, or items directly related to comics.
  2. No spamming. Group your for sale items into as few threads as is reasonable. Attempts to take up front page real estate by creating multiple threads for no reason are not allowed.
  3. List your books only once, and in the appropriate sub-forum. Incorrectly placed threads or books posted in multiple places will be moved. Repeat offenders will have their threads pulled completely.
  4. It must be an exclusive board-only offer. If the book is offered for sale through another venue (ebay, dealer site, personal web site, etc.) then it should NOT be offered here. It should be offered in the Sales Advertising board.
  5. Links to outside sites for any purpose involving purchasing the offered books are not allowed.
  6. It must list specific books with purchase prices. It is acceptable to bulk price, and/or to note that package discounts may be available, but you must list a starting price that you WILL sell for.
  7. List scans or information about the grade of the offered books.
  8. List estimated shipping costs, times, and methods.
  9. List acceptable forms of payment (NOTE: Personal PayPal payment is NOT allowed as a listed option in your post as it is not appropriate for item purchases.)
  10. A return policy must be stated with any time limits indicated. It is acceptable to say "No time limit" and/or "No returns" and/or have time limits that vary by reason for return e.g. "30 day return for any reason. No time limit returns for "not as described'". But time limits must be stated.
  11. If posting a trading thread you must list a dollar value price for the book that you WILL accept in TRADE VALUE, and you MUST put "TRADE ONLY" in the title of your thread if you will not accept money.
  12. Prompt responses must be made to buy requests made through the boards (posts or PMs).
  13. Threads may be bumped three times total AND only ONE FULL DAY AFTER falling off of the front page. This does not include "sold" notices, or truly useful informational updates. Note: we CAN tell the difference between a real update and a fake bump-update. Tread that line at your own risk. If you're spam bumping, "lawyering" the rules will not save you.
  14. Threads selling digital codes or digital versions are not allowed.
  15. Raffles are not allowed.
  16. Mystery boxes are not allowed. You must list everything you are selling exactly as the buyer will receive it.

BUYERS: When you reply to a sale thread indicating that you'll buy something you must indicate what book you're buying. Otherwise, if someone else is more specific than you are first, your offer won't be considered valid.

      Reviews of the Plastic City Comic Con!
      "Pure awesomeness! So much fun. Vendors were all great. I picked up a large stack of books for fair price. I hope that this was the first or many Plastic City Comic Cons. Big thanks to the organizers for making this such a nice event."

      "Plastic City was amazing! The crowd was happy, the vendors and artists were top notch. I will be at this event every time they have it. 10 star rating if fb allowed it."

      "Best Con of the year! Any freaking year!!! Keith (the promoter) has the perfect vision of what makes an old-school comic show work due to years of being in the trenches. I should know, I was there crying with him. He took that winning formula and applied it to what is wrong with shows today. The result is Plastic City Comic Con and the beginning of a new movement! BOOOOM!!!!!!"

      Little Giant Comics OLD SCHOOL COMIC SHOW 
      Here's the deal, I wanted to create the kind of show I would want to attend.
      GREAT COMICS, GREAT ART & ARTISTS!
      I want to enter a room filled with amazing comics, incredible art and talented artists, I don't think that's too much to ask.
      Seems like every show I attend only has a small amount of comic vendors (usually the same 3 or 4 people I see at every show), the rest of the floor is fidget spinners, Cosplay stopping in front of your booth for photo shoots, sweaty ROOT BEER mugs everywhere dripping on your comics or art, Pirates running around, knick knack patty whacks, energy drinks, Ice Cream vendors and flea market fodder........
      NO MORE I SAY!!
