    Greetings all, and welcome to the DPF pin sales forum! We have implemented the following general forum rules (don't fret - they're very easy to abide by) in order to help sales run smoothly and efficiently.

    Thread Posting Guidelines: If you do not follow these guidelines, your post will be deleted.

    • Thread titles MUST contain a prefix.
      • For Sale:
      • Wanted:
    • Thread titles should be descriptive of what is for sale or trade.
    • Thread content should contain as much information as possible -- If there are any issues with any pins, please be up front about the condition.
    • All threads must contain prices as PayPal GOODS.

    Forum Rules:

    • In order to create a thread in the marketplace forums, the following conditions must be met:
      -Be a member on DPF for at least 10 days
      -Need to have at least 30 posts
      - New members are still allowed to browse and reply to threads in the marketplace (ie. buy or trade with established members) but will not be able to post a new thread to sell or trade their own goods until they have met the above criteria.
    • You may post your authorized/authentic Disney pins for sale in this forum, as well as requests for pins you are looking to buy. If you are looking to trade for a Disney pin, please post it in the "Trades" section of our forum.
    • Please limit "bumping" your post to once a day in consideration of others and their sales threads. Do not bump other seller's threads, especially if requested privately by the seller.
    • If you do not have anymore use for your thread for any reason, Please close your thread by editing the original post and selecting "close thread" at the bottom.
    • No counterfeited or scrapped pins may be sold in this forum.
    • Disney Pin Forum is not an auction site. Direct links by members to eBay auctions or other auctions are NOT allowed. Obvious references/advertising to your active eBay auctions are also not allowed. References to other sites where you sell your items are also not allowed.
    • When posting a pin for sale, please state specific prices for your item(s), instead of asking buyers to make offers. Posts MUST contain a price.
    • "Feeler" posts are not allowed.
    • Under no circumstances is anyone to reply to a post suggesting that the item can be found cheaper elsewhere. It is the buyer's responsibility (not other forum members) to look for the best deal. Members are trying to sell their items in a safe environment without fear of others trying to undercut their sales. However, it is a good idea to check prices on other sites (eBay) before pricing your pins for sale here. We don't want members to feel that they are being taken advantage of by other forum members.
    • Please ask an Admin or Mod to merge your similar Wanting to Buy/Wanting to Sell threads as a convenience for other members and to avoid unnecessary forum crowding. We request members only have a maximum of two (2) each of an active WTB and WTS thread. We reserve the right to remove any threads exceeding these limits.
    • Mods and Admins may, at their discretion, combine, close, or remove any redundant threads/posts by a single member.
    • There should not be any personal comments made about the price if you disagree with it. PM the seller rather than posting that comment on the thread.
    • All sales and purchases are at the risk of the individuals involved. Please be certain that you make safe and intelligent secure payment and shipping arrangements. is not responsible/liable for any pin(s) advertised for sale in this forum, the integrity of that product's representation, any sales that go uncompensated, or the shipment or transport of any items.
    • does not promote/endorse any products listed for sale in this forum.
    • These rules are subject to change by
    • Looking to sell or search for fantasy pins or other Disneyana items? Please post your items and requests in the "OTHER" For Sale/Wanted forum.
    • Payments - Starting October 1st, 2013, all prices posted in the sales forum are to reflect a price that includes PayPal seller fees. Starting October 1st, all transactions should be done as a payment for goods instead of a gift, unless privately discussed between seller and buyer. Please Note: All transactions done as GIFTS do not offer ANY form of buyer protection via PayPal and are done at the buyer's own risk! PAYPAL GOODS is the only acceptable method of accepting payment on this forum (unless you meet up in person for the transaction). If your post says anything about fees being added on top of the sales price, it will be closed immediately.
    • Unresolved Trades & Purchases - Starting immediately, if a trade/purchase goes past the 30 day mark and you have not received the item, or any form of customs number for international shippings, we recommend leaving feedback that properly reflects the situation, i.e. negative. If the situation is resolved after feedback is left, it can be altered if requested by the one who left it.
    Feel free to contact a Moderator or Administrator for possible help in resolving a trade/purchase issue, but all sales and purchases are at the risk of the individuals involved.

    Happy sales! Remember, communication is the key to successful sales and purchases.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send us a private message, and we will do our best to help you in any way we can.
