Welcome to the Staminist Buy, Sell & Trade Forum

The Buy, Sell & Trade Forum (aka the Trader or BST Forum) is for members to sell their sports equipment to other members.

As per the Forum Rules: Businesses and dealers may not advertise or sell items or services on this website. You are considered a business if you are employed by a company whose primary business is sports equipment, or if you earn a substantial portion of your income from selling sports equipment or sports related services. At some point in the future, we may add the ability to purchase advertising on this website, but until such time, commercial interests are not allowed under any circumstances.

Include the item description, location, and price in the subject of your topic

Please click the tags that are relevant to your sale when creating your topic, it helps people find your ad. Also, you're much more likely to make a sale if you attach or embed photos in your ad, and make sure to specify where you're willing to ship to, the payment methods you accept, and the shipping cost.

To ensure your transaction goes smoothly, I recommend buyers & sellers at least exchange phone numbers (and verify that it's a working number). That way, if a payment or a shipment doesn't show up or isn't as described, you have a recourse to work it out that doesn't involve email or this forum.

Staminist does not guarantee or verify any information about items for sale. CAVEAT EMPTOR!

You can outsmart the vast majority of would-be scammers by following these common-sense rules:

DEAL LOCALLY WITH FOLKS YOU CAN MEET IN PERSON - follow this one simple rule and you will avoid 95% of all scam attempts.
NEVER WIRE FUNDS VIA WESTERN UNION OR MONEYGRAM or any other wire service. Anyone who asks you to do so is a scammer.
FAKE CASHIER CHECKS & MONEY ORDERS ARE COMMON - banks will cash them and then hold YOU responsible when the fake is discovered weeks later.
PAYPAL PAYMENTS CAN BE REVERSED - just because you receive the money in your Paypal account does not mean you are protected. If the buyer is using a stolen credit card, the payment CAN be reversed.
STAMINIST/CORVUS DIGITAL IS NOT INVOLVED IN ANY TRANSACTION, and does not handle payments, verify item condition, guarantee transactions, provide escrow services, or offer any "buyer protection" or "seller certification".
NEVER GIVE OUT FINANCIAL INFORMATION like bank account number, social security number, eBay or PayPal password, etc.
AVOID VEHICLE SHIPPING OR ESCROW SERVICES and know that only a scammer will "guarantee" your transaction.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A WORKING PHONE NUMBER and home and work address, in case you need to get in touch after the transaction.

Use of the Staminist Buy, Sell & Trade Forum implies you understand these conditions.

Additional Buy, Sell & Trade Forum Rules:

  1. Group your items for sale into as few topics as possible.
  2. Don't post new, duplicate topics for the same equipment.
  3. You may "bump" your topic once every 3 days.
  4. When a sale is complete, edit your topic (the first post) and add SOLD to the subject and body.

Happy Trading!
