  1. SixPrizes

    SixPrizes The one and only!

    1. This forum is for requesting to buy cards only. We have separate forums for trading and selling.

    2. Your may make requests for Pokemon cards and TCG paraphernalia only. All items must be tangible (i.e. no deck lists or help requested). 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 sell to you will know where you are located.

    4. It is assumed all cards being requested are English and authentic. If you want to buy non-English cards, you must state so. Fake cards are disallowed due to copyright infringement.

    5. New threads in this forum are not moderated, but please make your buying requests clear.

    6. Your thread must include the following items:
    • Where you live
    • How prefer to pay (PayPal, cash, etc.)
    • What cards/items you're looking to buy (including the condition)
    • 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.

    7. 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.

    8. 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.

    9. Currently, anyone can reply to the threads in this forum, so do your homework and be sure you can trust them before sending away your hard-earned money. This isn't like the selling forum where moderators approve new threads to weed out inexperienced dealers and potential rippers.

    10. Before you complete a deal, make sure the other person is clear on the condition of the cards. Use this rating scale:
    11. The buyer must pay before the seller sends. The seller should promptly mail the cards/items in a secure, well-protected envelope. Refer to this thread for shipping tips.

    12. Leave feedback using XenTrader after the sale is complete. You may only leave feedback for sales/purchases that take place over SixPrizes (not in real life or on other sites). Politely remind the other party to leave feedback for you as well.

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

    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 seller/buyer.

    13. Scammers will be promptly banned. Sellers 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.
