Ok, so I've been on CAG for a little while now but I'm just starting to look into possibly trading my stuff. I've skimmed through this thread & the FAQ link to this one, after looking at a couple of trading posts & wanted to know if there is an abbreviation guide some where. I get the basics like: have, want, buy, sell, trade. But I saw somebody who wanted CML & I have no clue what that is. I'm sorry if this is a basic question but like I said I'm very new to this. Thanks in advance for any help.

So how long should one wait before filing a mail fraud report against someone? I made a trade here and the person received my game on the 6th but he hasn't logged in since the 4th so things are not looking so good right now.

Thanks for the response but I was planning on giving the person a week to at least respond to my pms before claiming them to be a scammer and taking things further just wanted to see the average cag wait time before claiming someone to be a scammer and trying to file a fraud report against them so I don't think there is any point in contacting a mod yet if I am not yet willing to throw them under the bus so to speak.

I have some questions for all your experienced traders and sellers:

I've got a decent sized collection of consoles, games, and guides that I'd like to sell.
I did some comparisons between Amazon, Craigslist, and EBay to see the number of listings and the price.

Overall, it seems like Craigslist isn't the way to go. There weren’t many listings for the stuff I had, and the prices varied wildly.

EBay was useful because I could lookup completed auctions and get a good idea of what the item will sell for. However, I haven't used EBAY in about 10 years, I don't have an account anymore, and I keep hearing horror stories about sellers getting grief from buyers and PayPal. That kinda scares me.

Amazon typically had higher listing prices than EBay, but I can't tell if anything has actually sold. Since I've never sold anything on Amazon, I don't know what it takes to get my item listed, and since I'd be starting fresh, I would have no Amazon marketplace street cred.

I could sell my stuff here, but I figured this would get me the lowest selling price, and I don't have any seller street cred here either.

So, anyone have any advice on where to sell, how to sell with no past history, and make it as painless as possible?

Thanks.

I have a bunch of games I'm about to list. Is it proper CAG etiquette to list prices along with them or should i just say "make me a offer"? I guess I can check Ebay to see how much this stuff is worth but that's gonna take a while.

Either way works



Also, how do I make an official DV8 lowball sale for myself?
Free 360 game by completing 2 offers. If you don't believe it just give it a shot. I spent $4 to get Dead Space. $13 to get Madden 10. PM me if you need help.

Depends... Did he tag you? :lol:

OK, really though, Many people get on CAG everyday, but others don't. Unless he agreed to send the moment he received payment, I think he should get a day or two grace period before you get worried.

Can we have an update/enforcement of PayPal rules on CAG? I've been seeing people saying PayPal gift only or this much for non-gift and this much for gift.

I need some advice.

I made a recent trade with a user who has no iTrader Feedback. He seems like a really nice guy. He shipped first and I received my game within two days (game received on 09-23-2009).

I shipped his game the next morning via first-class and provided delivery confirmation on 09-24-2009 at 9:09AM ET.

The USPS attempted to deliver the package on 09-28-2009 at 11:15AM ET and left a pick up notice.

The user has not picked up the game yet. I've sent several PM's to him to just see when he intends to pick up his game. According to the USPS delivery confirmation, the game will be sent back to me if not picked up within 15 days (10-12-009).

The user is not responding to any of my PMs.

--His last PM to me was on 09-24-2009 at 08:17 AM.
--His last post on CAG was on 09-24-2009 at 01:13 PM.
--His last activity on CAG was on 10-05-2009 at 04:51 PM.

Is there anything that I should be leery of?

If the game gets sent back to me, would I be required to resend it (and pay shipping again)? I think that it's fair for him to get the game that he traded to me. I just don't think it would be fair for me to have to pay twice for shipping (and delivery confirmation).

I'm not an overly experienced trader and I don't know how common this is. At any rate, any advice from experienced CAG traders will be appreciated.

Hopefully, it won't have to come to that. But if it does, I really hope that he's willing to cooperate.

If he refuses to pay for shipping, then what?

I am in the midst of a trade. An even swap of game for game. I shipped mine on 9/28 First class w/DC# he shipped his 9/30 with first class, no DC. He received mine within a couple of days and I have not yet received the package from him. We are still in contact and both worried whether it'll even show up at my place or bounce back to his.

My question is: how long should we reasonably wait on the package before finding a different solution to the trade?

Drums,

It gets hairy at that point as you are both susceptible to bad feedback from each other. Unfortunately, you are in a tough spot with that. I would let him respond before worrying about it as the fault is completely with him at this point.

Chernobyl,

I would wait roughly 10 business days before thinking of other options with the other trader. I have had a Priority package take that long to come to me from California(in NJ) so unfortunately, patience is the best answer at this point imo.

Thanks jack! Good news, he contacted me last night and said that he was able to pick up the game. He's been working a lot and it's really limited his ability to pick up the game or do much on CAG.

So in the end, everything worked out. I got my game within 2 days and he finally picked up his game. Everything is well again in the land of CAG.

Question, nothing bad. I bought a game from a fellow CAG, received it a few days later, both left good feedback, yay! Yesterday I bought another game from him, my question is - when it arrives, is it alright for us to exchange feedback again so shortly after another trade? My gut says yes since it's a separate transaction entirely, but I didn't know whether it might be viewed as feedback padding. I'm still relatively new, just wanted to double check.

Feedback only counts once from someone as unique after that it will show on your itrader page but not add another +1 to the number under your forum avatar thing. So you'll still show 10 unless you click on it and look at your page than it will show 11 etc. Although I would leave feedback on that as its really a different transaction.

ok, i have no idea where to ask this, and i'm still pretty new to this thing so I'm going to ask here, hopefully someone can give me an answer...

I've checked the guide on shipping, and it says to ship a game is usually under 4 dollars...I keep paying 4.80 every time I ship out an item, no matter the size of the game itself, or the envelope i ship it in (for example, I am using small mail electronic media boxes right now for the items about to ship, as well as 8x11 and 4x7 envelopes). what is an effective way to cut these shipping costs if i shouldn't be spending as much as I am?
