  1. SixPrizes

    SixPrizes The one and only!

    1. This forum is for trading only. We have separate forums for selling and buying.

    2. Trades may be for Pokemon cards and TCG paraphernalia only. All items must be tangible (i.e. no deck lists or help offered). Loose booster packs are discouraged because they could be weighed for holos.

    3. Edit your profile location to include your city, state, and/or country. This is so that anyone who wants to trade with you will know where you are located.

    4. It is assumed all cards being traded are English and authentic. If you have non-English cards for trade, you must state so. Fake cards are disallowed due to copyright infringement.

    5. All new trade threads are moderated before going live. Once you submit a new thread, it will be added to the moderation queue and a moderator will double-check to make sure it meets all the following requirements. If it's ok, it'll be posted, otherwise we'll message you to make changes.

    6. Your thread must include the following details:
    • Your username as the first word in the title (i.e. "Pokefan's Trade Thread")
    • Where you ship
    • Your wants
    • Your cards for trade (including the general condition of your cards)
    • Links to references (like your eBay account or trading profile on PokeGym and/or PokeBeach)
    We do have our own feedback system called XenTrader, but it is going to take time to build up references and reputability in the marketplace, hence why we want you to include links to feedback you've received on other websites. If you have no references, then please mention that you have no references. If you don't mention anything regarding references, then it will be assumed you have none.

    7. Only list cards you actually intend to trade. You must also have all cards listed in your possession (not out on loan, in a deck, or in the mail).

    8. You may only have 1 trade thread open at a time. Edit your first post to keep it updated. If you need to start a new thread for whatever reason, let a moderator know and we'll lock the old one.

    9. You may bump your thread, but no more than once every 24 hours. If you bump excessively or reply needlessly, your thread will be locked.

    10. Respond to all offers you receive; don't leave anyone hanging. On the flip side, don't make offers you have no intention of following up on.

    11. Do not reply to someone's trade thread with simply "See my list" or "CML." It's lazy and rude. Take the time to compare their haves/wants and make an actual offer.

    12. Before you complete a deal, make sure the other person is clear on the condition of your cards. Use this rating scale:
    13. Promptly mail your cards in a secure, well-protected envelope. Refer to this thread for shipping tips.

    14. Leave feedback using XenTrader after the trade is complete. You may leave feedback only for trades that you make over SixPrizes (not in real life or on other sites). Politely remind your trading partner to leave feedback for you as well.

    To leave feedback using XenTrader, click your trading partner's username, then click the "Leave Feedback" link from the overlay (or on their profile page). Select your role (Trader), the appropriate trade thread, rate the transaction, and type some detail about the trade.

    All negative feedback is moderated. You should only leave negative feedback in cases where you were ripped off or there is irreparable negligence on the part of your trading partner.

    15. Scammers will be promptly banned. Traders who receive negative feedback (for being a slow sender, sending damaged cards, sending the wrong cards, etc.) will receive a temporary ban. Multiple negative infractions will result in a permanent ban. Please communicate and try to work things out before leaving negative feedback, however.
