We have had quite a few great non-profit Group Orders organized by our members in the past. Until now general members could not sell items like dealers for a profit. They could only put up a small number of of personal items for sale or put up non-profit Group Orders (GO's).
Many members did put up great GO's without any profit in it for them and purely for community service. However we do understand that organising and executing such Group Orders takes some time and effort and therefore a reasonable amount of profit can compensate people for the effort that they have put in. This could also encourage more people to put up GO's of good products at very competitive prices which will benefit the entire community.
We have therefore now decided to allow even general members to sell their wares in the Erodov Market for a reasonable profit. There will be no fees applicable
to the members who are selling at a profit and this facility is completely free
. However there will be some rules and regulations applicable to members who wish to post such profit making GO's. There have also been changes in the way the Dealer and Community Market functions. These are as follows.
From now onwards members wishing to organize Group Orders on Erodov will have to submit their real name, address, contact number and a scanned copy of your identity proof to the Erodov staff before they are allowed to post any Group orders. Acceptable proofs of identity include driving license, passport, voter card, pan card or other legally valid identity proofs. The details may be sent as an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
. We take all reasonable measures to safeguard your data and identity credentials but we do not guarantee their safety or take any responsibility for protecting your data.
You need not submit your credentials for posting an Interest Check in the community Market.
The GO's/Interest checks will now first have to be posted in the newly created Group Order and Interest Checks Drafts
forum. The threads created here will only be visible to you and the Erodov staff. If the staff are satisfied with your GO thread then it will be moved to the Dealer and Community Market forum where it will be visible to all members and guests. The regulations for getting approval for a GO thread are as follows. 1.
The staff's decision on which GO's to approve and which to disapprove are final. 2.
We will examine the past credentials of a person putting up an GO. People who are well known in the community and have had a good track record in the market and have some experience in handling online trading will be preferred. 3.
Members with poor track records in the market and new members will not be preferred for organising such GO's. 4.
GO's trying to book exorbitant profits and those quoting unreasonably high prices will not be permitted. If we feel that the price being quoted is unreasonably high then the GO will not get approval. 5.
We expect that the person putting up the GO will put in effort to reply to peoples quires and provide them with good service. Putting up GO's and not managing/executing them may prevent your future GO's from getting approved. 6.
Sale of pirated software and counterfeit hardware is prohibited. 7.
Sale of Rapidshare, Megaupload and other similar filehosting accounts without prior permission from Erodov.com is prohibited. 8.
All communication regarding the sale has to be done either on the thread itself or through the private messaging system.

This is done to ensure them member’s safety and protect them from spam and dubious unsolicited contacts. 9.
