Checked where? As far as every trade I've ever done, it's been lower sends 1st under any circumstances (even when I was lower, even other trader using paypal). It's really up to each individual, though, but I don't see why 'lower feedback goes 1st' changes when it's money, as trades go bad just as often.

Here when I first started trading.

I don't know why it was that way either, I just know it was the generally accepted norm when I started trading on here a few years ago. Haven't really trade in a while though, so I didn't know if the "rule" changed.

I didn't see this in the rules as a no-no but figured i would ask before attempting it... is it legal to sell/trade an xbox 360 account on here?

Question.

I want to sell many older PC games I no longer have space for, but, I really can't afford to send first. Mostly because these are really older games and weigh a lot.

I know I have 1 feedback, but I'm still allowed to ask for the money upfront, right? I'm not here to scam people, I'd rather just sell these things than just throw them away. :(

Ya, you can ask for money first, but there probably wont be many people who'd want to trade with you. I'd try buying/trading with some highest feedback people to increase your iTrader rating.

It's your tradelist. You can do what you want as long as you don't break CAG's rules (which this does not, if that's what you were asking). Some people choose not to send until they recieve the cash (when they are selling), regardless of feedback. There's nothing wrong with it at all. Most here abide by the "lowest goes first," creed, so you may have trouble finding buyers, as sasukekun said.

If I had the cash to spare, I'd send first. But, I don't. Most of these items are going to be $1-$3 anyway, I'm not looking to make much profit out of them. Resellers may want to take advantage of this sale, though, so...

To be honest I always use the "other", "payments owed" options because it is actually owed to that person and there aren't any fees.

@Kitsune Sniper-Generally CAGs with higher feedback don't mind paying first but the reason there is a feedback system is so we don't get ripped by "noobies" who just create an account to rip people off. If also depends on the items. For items, that are that low priced normally noone has a problem paying first. Its when if you were selling a PS3 or another high dollar amount that people would be worried about being ripped off.

And that's completely against Paypal's TOS and not allowed on CAG:

Sucks it took away from my feedback, as I followed through with my end of the trade (from someone who did the same). I can understand that once someone is banned, their feedback is removed, but unless the feedback given by them is fraudulent (like, a lie, or padding, etc), why is it removed as well? Is it because other CAG's can no longer check it in depth (cross referencing)? People that have been here for a while have PLENTY of feedback that you can't cross reference for one reason or another, so that can't be it. Just curious, as the feedback they left was for me holding up my end of the deal, and I did that. If they were selling stuff that shouldn't be sold, I understand the ban & their feedback being removed. I just hate that the feedback that they left for me, that was genuine in every way, is removed :cry:. Thanks in advance.

If a guy says he has thousands of codes available, I don't see how anyone can think that the source is legit in any way. Having feedback removed from such a transaction which is the result of fraudulent activity is a given.

I never asked how many codes the guy I traded with had (and his OP certainly didn't say he had thousands). I say the same thing to everyone, "Send me the codes & I will try them out. If they work, I will send payment." I guess it's nice to find that out now.

Everyone who dealt with that CAG had their feedback removed, so it wasn't just singling you out. A gentle reminder that if a deal is too good to be true, it usually is, and you shouldn't benefit from it. We can't take the points back, obviously, though the feedback can get removed.

Feel free to dispute the Paypal charge over the transaction, if you'd like, as I see no reason why they should profit from scamming a contest.

You might want to think that statement through again, as this was at the top of the banned CAG's thread:

Selling codes each worth 160 msp from an instant win game () back when it was easy to win.

I have thousands and will sell them for only 1.00 each thats 50% of retail price! (Maybe a cheaper bulk rate if you want to buy >100 codes



So, yes, it was clearly stated, in nice bright yellow text, that the CAG in question had thousands of codes.

Not sure if this is the right place to address this but I'm just using the CAG Marketplace for the first time. I've got one game listed as "tradeable" and have dozens of games in my wish list. Is there a way to filter just users that want my game and also have a game that I want? Right now I see a list of all the people that have the games I want but I have to go through each person to see if they want the game I have.

Okay, I feel stupid, but I gave invalid feedback without realizing it today. I've been swapping Club Nintendo codes, and I was left feedback for a transaction. I checked the feedback page and it -looked- as though "non CAG feedback" was allowed, and I assumed this meant feedback for this was fine.

Later, I reread the Club Nintendo thread and note that it isn't allowed. I e-mail the site and CheapyD links me to this thread, where it specifically says "no Club Nintendo code feedback."

Should I worry now? I don't want to get anyone in trouble for my mistake. Is there a way to request a retraction of feedback due to my misunderstanding?


Our overlord is fixing this for me himself. Unless he meant "kick me from the CAGlands forever", all would appear to be well. Thanks for reading!

Got a silly question that may have already been asked:

If I give a game away for free, is it OK to ask for positive feedback? If so, is it considered valid feedback? I ask because I have a few keys I don't need, and would like to build up a bit of feedback to get more people interested in trading me (as I mostly have physical copies for games). Thanks in advance.

The OP makes it pretty clear:

-When should we leave feedback?
Feedback should be left when both parties participate in an exchange of items of specific value. Some examples outlined below or when and when not to leave feedback.
User 1 trades his Bioshock for User 2's Mass Effect. Feedback is left by both parties.
User 1 buys an Xbox 12 month code from User 2. Feedback is left by both parties.
User 1 gives User 2 a Playstation 3 and User 2 pays $20 for the shipping. Feedback is left for both parties.

User 1 gives User 2 a free 48 Xbox Live code. NO Feedback is left.
User 1 gives User 2 a free Playstation 3. NO Feedback is left.
User 1 trades a gmail invite for a qmail invite from User 2. NO feedback is left.


In short, if you just give something away, then no feedback is to be left. It has to be a two-way transaction, meaning each party needs to give something of monetary value to the other, in order to be eligible for feedback.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

You can sell your PC, but with your low feedback and high value item you might be expected to send first, depending on who you deal with.

http://www.cheapassg...?do=editprofile

At the bottom of this UserCP, there is a place for your buy/sell/trade list addy. Copy the address bar in your browser while on page 1 of your list here, then paste it in that place on the user control panel that I linked you to. Click, "Save Changes," at the very bottom of the page. Now you will have the "CML" in the bottom-right of your avatar to link traders to your list.
