They buy and sell lots of game consoles...... (similar ones usually)

It's when people are selling large quantities of the same item, like from their own shop/business. Think you'ere only allowed to sell your own personal items.

oh i see like from work etc... Fair do's lols answers my question! Thanks

I'd guess it happens a lot because people sell and buy upgrading there current xbox 360.

I have bought a couple of consoles on here of many kinds, but I kinda have 7 consoles at the moment, though I in know way trade them.

I bought my wii on ebay as I couldn't find a buyer on here.

No, nothing to do with work or a business(although that's not allowed).

It's usually when a member sells a lot of the same type of item.
They are then forbidden to sell/buy them anymore.

I disagree

If I buy 20 HDDs off a mate and then decide I don't want them, I'll put them up on here for no profit what so ever, just to make a quick sale and to get them off my back.

A trader is normally someone who has a lot of stock, a big inventory, and a profit margin.

thesaints right whether you disagree or not.
unless you can show full paperwork to prove that you are doing this at no profit then you'd be classed as a trader.
even if you could, sometimes a trader will need to sell at a loss to get cash flow or make inventory space.
check the rules it doesn't have space for 'insert your opinion here'

"(1) This is for personal trading and selling only. NO businesses, trader like, businesslike services. NO bulk sales of more than two of the SAME items sold separately or together as a 'lot' within a three month period."
check the part in bold

I am guessing the console ones are those people that buy and sell here and on ebay for profit - one i seen a few times being bought and sold over and over is psps.
thats profiteering not just providing a way to get rid of an unwanted item - its a concious attempt to get a profit repeatedly.

Have to agree with you there. I sold a box of my DVDs to get rid of them, about 24 in all, but I didnt make any profit off them as I sold the lot for around £15 including delivery and the delivery cost was £8, so I got a wholesome £7 for my 24 DVDs....hardly what one would define as trading as opposed to an individual wanting to get a couple of quid for something that they no longer use.

I think the tipping factor is the price that you sell them for as there would be little point in a trader selling a lot of items at a loss!

just looked at that thread - its completely different
you sold an assortment of dvds and cds which is normal for any user to have
if however you said you had 24 of a single dvd or cd then thats not normal so you'd be classed as a trader
