Apple products

Banned
Why can't i sell apple products on here? Yes i used to sell many iPods and i admitted myself it was at a profit as i used to buy them alot. Now i want to list my iPhone on here and i am told i can't. The iPhone is my personal phone not something i am making a profit on. If you look at my history i also bought a iPhone from here so i do buy lots of apple products. So i don't understand why i can sell Apple products i could understand about iPods but i tried to sell my macbook and now my iphone and both were removed! Can you let me know as i can't quite frankly understand this. Its not like i have had any problematic trades with anyone where buyers were dissatisfied with their product. I have good feedback here and elsewhere!

So again i ask why?

becuase, u've been caught red handed, so mods realised you were buying and selling profiteering.

which is not allowed

...because you cannot be trusted to comply with the rules.

ooh in b4 tears and ban

if you have actually admitted previously selling apple products at a profit,then the simple reason is that you broke the rules-nothing personal,but you asked why and theres the reason. I dont know the history of this,but if you have been profiteering from members then the ban seems fair to me-how are mods to know you arent making a profit from future listings?

I admitted on the iPods myself so to say i was caught red handed makes no sense!

The rules were never broken i can understand a ban on iPods but not on other products!

Profiteering? I paid £500 for my iPhone, £13 for SGP case and £18 for Carbon skin totals to £531 and i listed iPhone 4 at £440

I can't be trusted to comply with the rules care to elaborate on that

I don't need to elaborate. You said you "used to buy these alot" and then admitted to wanting to make a profit. Re-read your own original post.

"the rules were never broken"-profiteering is against the rules,so they were broken

Not on this forum they weren't! The only products there was a profit on was the iPods but now i am told no Apple products which i can't understand as there quite clear is no profiteering on the iPhone i listed and previously the same can be said of the Macbok which i used and was selling as i wanted to upgrade.

classed as trader selling alot of the same thing

Yes that was for iPods.

I am not a trader i was just selling my personal iPhone which i bought for £500 i have receipts for it. The iPods i was profiteering on and i know that isn't allowed but i genuinely needed the cash from selling the iphone to pay other outgoing costs and it is my personal handset i was never going to make any profit on that and the same applied to the macbook i listed previously.

One day the penny will drop...

Do you realise that this is not the only place online to sell something?

You have broken the rules. Deal with the repercussions.

It doesn't matter whether you sold iPods and then bananas. You have still had trader like activity which bans you from trading anything.

what dont you understand...you broke the rule by profiteering in the past by selling ipods that equals trader status so therefore the mods remove your selling privileges on here.

It doesn't matter if you're trying to sell an iphone or a pink fluffy tutu you wont be able to do it here, so stop moaning.

Then quite frankly the mod is wrong as i was only selling iPods at a profit which i a apologize for.

Selling my iPhone was never for profit but just as i am in need of funds.

How the mod can decide to ban an entire brand name is something i don''t understand. If i was someone profiteering i wouldn't be buying iPhones and Macbooks on forums as obviously i would be getting them at a better price but that wasn't the case and like others i paid the going rate.

You'll probably find your banned from selling anything here.

The for sale/trade section on here is a bonus section not a given right, people who cant abide by the rules should rightly be banned from using it, the mods run it the best they can, they dont get paid to do it so banning certain people using it makes their life easier and a better experience for all.

Keep going and you'll earn yourself a complete FS/FT Ban. Trader like behaviour is what it is..........doesn't matter if it's iPods, DVD's or Tampax. You broke the site rules.........you lose.

Accept it and move on before you make it worse.

The ban is on apple products (nothing else) and i never asked you for a response so if you got no information on the exact reason then don't post its quite easy to press the back button in your browser. I am not moaning i just want to find out!

You have been told many times. You just are not listening.

You sold items at a profit. Therefore you are restricted from selling items of the same brand as profiteering is against the rules. If you sold many items of different brands then that would actually be worse and you would have been banned. Just deal with it and stop pretending you do not know.

We need the wit and wisdom of ASB to finish this off in his own inimitable style.

but you DONT want to" find out" do you? you asked the question why,youve been told why but you just dont want to accept that so I dont see the point-mods will NEVER change their mind on this so its best you just forget it.people have explained why you cant sell and you just tell them they dont know what they are talking about-this no longer makes any sense on your part-mods and members here take a dim view of profiteering.
