I've recently fully-completed my experience posting and selling plants on the new Terraforums Classifieds forum and I thought others might be interested in my experience. As others do the same I would welcome them to also post their experiences on this thread. If you have direct suggestions for changes there is a dedicated thread for that here: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...stions-welcome
As I moved to assemble my sales thread I immediately realized that I wouldn't be doing it as a normal Tf thread as the formatting is set by an organization called Panjo. This irked me a bit at first, I admit, but then I realized that it was even easier than I would've expected. Panjo takes direct uploads of photos so I didn't have to put them in Photobucket as I would've usually for a new thread. They also took my PayPal address and made it easy for payment to be made. When the sale was final they even took out the 5% for Tf so I didn't have to do that as a separate process. It was all pretty slick. My first posting was rough since I'm new to selling online but it was easy to edit and add information as I wanted to.
The biggest difference to a normal Tf thread for me was that I got zero feedback. At first I thought no one was looking at the thread but I started watching the views counter and saw that wasn't so. In fact those numbers are still going up as I write this! When the sale was made Panjo sent an email to my inbox at Yahoo containing the information I would need to contact the buyer and also the shipping information. All very easy. It was a pleasant experience. I hope my price seemed reasonable to other members of this forum and it seems to me that one of the advantages of buying here is that sellers will be mindful that the community is watching. I think most of us have known outrage over some astronomical price paid for cps on one of the sales specific websites.
For what it's worth.
