The Trading Post is intended for individuals to buy, sell, and trade between one another. (If you operate a business and wish to sell here, email us at for advertising options). Bahrainguide.org cannot guarantee the legitimacy of the buyer, seller, or trader. Bahrainguide.org does not take responsibility of any sort for any transactions that takes place between individuals.

* You MUST post a price for ALL For Sale (FS) and For Sale/For Trade(FS/FT) topics. Honour your prices.
* No auction style posts will be allowed.
* 'Thread crapping' (ridiculing or questioning a posted price) will not be tolerated. If you do not intend to buy and have nothing positive to add, please refrain from posting in that topic. If you think the asking price is too high, or want to make an offer significantly lower than the posted price, please contact the seller via email or private message (PM).
* You cannot sell something you do not have in your immediate possession.
* No SPAM.
* No multi-level marketing, pyramid, and get-rich schemes allowed.
* No pirated/bootleg/illegal software sales/trades allowed. You cannot disclose the inclusion of pirated games/applications/movies in any of your sale threads. Your price can also not reflect the inclusion of pirated games/applications/movies.
* No more than 2 active threads in the board at all times. Re-use and edit threads whenever possible. Good rule of thumb is to have 1 FS and 1 WTB
* 'Bumping' a thread - No more that one bump every seven days.

Trading Guidance:

1. Leave your contact information whether that be your e-mail address, ICQ, etc. You must be able to contact one another to be able to buy, sell, or trade.
2. Use common sense. If the deal seems too good to be true then take extra precaution.
3. Clarity is key. Links to a product's website are often helpful. Be honest when describing the condition of used parts. Make sure there is a mutual understanding of what is being paid for and what is expected. Agree on any terms of sale before the transaction takes place. (ie: damage responsibility, excess charges, guarantees, and payment options).
4. Check over items you purchase in the presence of the seller.
5. Honesty is the best policy. If you promised to sell at a set price don't change it after someone has met that price.
6. Attempt to resolve any issues in private. Post a message to warn others if necessary, however keep it respectful.
7. Make sure you know what you are purchasing. Attempt to get all the relevant information such as conditions/usage, what's included, refund possibility etc..etc.. Sometimes in the haste of getting in on a good deal, you may end up with something you didn't quite anticipate

*Trading takes two - it's the responsibility of BOTH parties to ensure a smooth and happy transaction. For sellers, follow up on the trade. For buyers, make sure that you're comfortable with the sale.
*Clear communication - Never assume anything - ask questions, keep records, and above all, be specific.
*Calm communication - When you're hot and toasty mad, don't go sending that message in a hurry. Take a deep breath, heck, take ten. Think about it and try to avoid rash statements.

Happy buying, selling, and trading![/b]
