Hi, can someone help me with these 2 questions please?

1) What does "bump" exactly mean when you are selling?
2) If someone pays through paypal, is the convention to allow the money to settle and maybe transfer to ur bank account before you ship the item?

once money is in paypal its safe to ship the item, bump just mean to put your listing at the start i think and you can only bump 3 times, or maybe 4 ive never sold anything on here but from what ive seen people say i think thats right.

a bump moves your thread to the top of the list. your allowed 3 bumps, a mod/helper can expire/lock a thread if too many bumps are used.

When someone pays by paypal, as soon as that money has been paid and you see it in your paypal account you should post as soon as poss.

I bumped a couple of my threads today, but they did not go to the top of the list. What can I do?

Just to add that a bump doesn't necessarily just include posts with the word "bump". If you reply to your own thread saying "anyone interested?" or "putting this on ebay tomorrow", they are deemed bumps. Likewise if you start chatting to a buyer, they can count as bumped unless it is negotiations.

Bumps don't work on folk.

On HUKD FS/FT make sure you have clicked the "Discussed" tab and not "New"

Both were posted on hukd, and i asked for bumps on both around 3pm. I wanted it be around noon or so, coz it would have atleast more views than now. Can I delete the first request and put one again tomorrow?

Thank you, will keep that in mind for the future.

But to my knowledge, the first request did not make it go to the start of the listings at all...

You don't request bumps, by commenting in the thread you are "bumping" it yourself.
