RON L here again!
OK, So, I gues this Just means that Sels get a pass to sell and not keep thier word to a NON member as your not allowing them feedback, thats how I read it? I think that's a Bad desision and yes, it can be done thought a 3RD party, but why should it have to be? Wht not allow NON members to Be allowed to post only inthe fedback section, if thats even possible to filter like that?
You're being a little unnecessarily snarky there, Ron L.
This is the way we have decided to implement the trading post and we don't have any plans to make any significant changes anytime soon. My only advice to you, in order to avoid the risk of buying/selling with non-members, is to not buy or sell items with non-members.
Please keep in mind that ZS is run by all volunteers and to simplify the entire process for our volunteers (while keeping members in mind) we decided to make any involvement in the Trading Post (buying or selling) Members-Only. This policy was largely implemented because of a number of sour deals made by non-members.
As I have mentioned to other entrepreneurs in the past, who have come to this forum for the sole purpose of making a few dollars off this community: ZS is not designed to be a commerce website
and we don't plan to focus a lot of effort catering to buyers/sellers. If our small forum doesn't satisfy your business needs there are other websites that put more resources towards offering better services for third-party merchants.
Lastly, keep in mind that doing any business here is at YOUR OWN RISK. Just because someone (like yourself) paid the $15 to become a member, that doesn't mean we verify their credibility and we definitely have no way or making a member accountable if they screw someone over. The "member-only" policy is just our tiny hope that the inconvenience of joining ZS may be a small deterrent for would-be scam artists.
I'm sorry for any inconvenience that this policy may cause you.
