Re: Trading on the e-group forum

I'm glad that you are not going to stop all sales as it is a valuable service to members. I admit that recently I have been selling several items as I have changed system, though it's not exactly a profit making exercise, more a generous subsidy to other Olympus users

It's quite interesting to compare the approach on other forums. Leica User Forum charge a modest sum (5) per ad. Talk Photography limit the number of adverts you can have and insist that all negotiation are within the forum thread so other members can see what offers are made, silly (and you do get them!) or otherwise and the final price.

Generally I have found both buying and selling through the forum much more pleasant than using ebay and it would be a shame if you eventually find you have to stop the practice.
