Please be certain that you make safe and intelligent secure payment arrangements. is not responsible/liable for any sales that go uncompensated. We are also not responsible/liable for any item advertised for sale on this site, and the integrity of that product's representation.

3. Scammer's or members with sketchy transactions in their past are not welcome and will be put on the Prohibited Seller's list immediately or banned if valid proof is provided.

4. Selling parts that you do NOT have on hand just isn't going to work on this forum. Get the parts on hand, take pictures of them and then post them. ALL threads of anything for sale that a member does not currently have on hand (unless they can provide justifiable proof that they do own those parts) will be closed.

5. NO MULTI-ITEM posts please separate the items into separate threads unless you are selling as a package deal. It will help improve the search function plus it will be easier to manage when the item has been sold. The only exception to this rule is the "Wiring, Electrical & Other Installation Equipment" forum, in that forum you may post multiple similar items in one thread, but you you need to keep the first post up to date with what is still available. For example: wire of different lengths/sizes can go in one thread but wire and connectors need to be separated.

6. Do not link to another forum or site where you have items listed, take the time and copy the information within your post and place them correctly into the template provided.

7. Once you have sold your item, you MUST click "" which is located at the bottom of your original forsale thread.

15. If you have less than 5 iTrader seller and/or trader feedback then you MUST post your CACO user name and CURRENT date in a picture of the item for sale. POWER SELLERS are excluded from posting their username and date but are still required to post pictures. (Seller feedback means that you were the seller in the transaction within iTrader) EXAMPLE

16. Absolutely no post dumping will be allowed. this includes post not pertaining to BUYING the item. They will be deleted and you will receive either a verbal warning or an infraction, if the issues continue you will then be banned.

That is the responsibility of the purchaser to look for the best deal - not for forum members to point out.

28. Use descriptive titles within the classified sections.

29. Do not ask for Paypal fee's, it is against their rules and your topic will be removed.
There is a new regulation implemented on Paypal that everyone should know about. It can be found under the Terms of Use at the bottom of the paypal page. "No Surcharges. Under Visa and MasterCard regulations and the laws of several states, including California, merchants may not charge a fee to the buyer for accepting credit card payments (often called a "surcharge"). You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as payment. This restriction does not prevent you from imposing a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services, as long as the handling fee does not operate as a surcharge (in other words, the handling fee for transactions paid through PayPal may not be higher than the handling fee for transactions paid through other payment methods)."

30. If you are going to sell something you have to respond to questions within 48 hours or the thread will be closed.

31. I you have a general question to ask a staff member about a specific thread or post then use the button in the top right of any post instead of contacting a specific staff member so it can be handled appropriately.

32. FYI - You must have 10 post for you to be allowed more than 1 pm in your box. If you post "Why am I only allowed 1 pm in my box" or something similar you WILL be infracted because it will be obvious that you didn't read the rules. - Patrick Simmons (10/24/2009)

33. Vendors must support their forum and answer questions in their forum within 72hrs or risk their section being deleted with NO refund. Also if a vendor is caught samming or has some sketchy transaction/issue(s) or involvment then that vendors status will be revolked with NO REFUND!

35. We do not tolerate any type of Rick-Roll or any other type of malicious attack and you will be banned immediately. [Added 7/24/10 - Patrick]

36. If you have an item for sale and you decide not to sell, or you sell it locally, you must mark the thread as . Changing your mind in the middle of a sale is not acceptable.

37. Competitive recruitment is strictly prohibited on CACO. If you are caught trying to pull members of our site to an unaffiliated site, you will be banned.
