Do not submit requests for others (including individuals, organizations, etc.) [either by submitting an item request(s) for another party or responding to an item offer(s) for another party]. If another party wants to request an item, they should submit their own request. Note that you may NEVER request that an item be sent directly to any other party - however, if you want to request an item which you will subsequently (and personally) give to another individual (not an organization, group, business, etc.), it may be acceptable to request it here. For more information / requirements regarding subsequent transfers, see question below. Do not proceed unless you meet all requirements.

Top | Question Summary

Q. Is it okay to transfer items received to another party?

A. First of all, note that you may NOT request that the original sending party send any item(s) to any other party besides yourself. YOU must personally deliver any items to the party you wish to transfer them to. After receiving transferred items, they become yours. Any further transfers of items are referred to as "subsequent transfers". Subsequent transfers are solely between yourself and the other party (e.g. the party to whom the item is to be subsequently transferred to). You may not involve either the original sending party or us in any subsequent transfer. By engaging in any action in any way related to any subsequent transfer(s) (including requesting an item intended for another, offering an item to another person, giving away an item, contacts / correspondence about an item to be given to another, etc.), you agree to take full responsibility / liability for all transfer(s) and all consequences / outcomes, etc. of all parties, without limit, and without recourse to any other party. If you do not want - or cannot afford - such liability, you should not participate. Note that you should not request items in sharing sections for the purpose of transferring them to any organization / business / group, etc. If you request items with the intention of distributing them to another individual, you should (as a courtesy) notify the original sending party that you intend to further distribute the item (without providing any personal details of any party). For example, on the "Add Item Request" page, select the appropriate option in the "Needed for" field (i.e. self, relative / friend, other). Note that you should carefully inspect / verify all items before engaging in any subsequent transfer(s) and take all other appropriate precautions. You should also carefully remove any ownership markings of the original sender (including any postal information on any packaging) and you should be certain that your intended recipient can receive/utilize the item lawfully. Remember also that if there is a problem with the item, you agree that you alone may be held personally liable for all consequences / damages, etc. We are not a party to your transfers and do not mediate disputes. As indicated, by using this site, you agree to hold us harmless for all consequences - direct or indirect - which may occur as a result of use of this site (or other materials), regardless of their nature. If you do not want to take such risks (or cannot afford to), you should not participate. Use of this site is at your own risk. Reminder: By engaging in any action whatsoever in any way related to any subsequent transfer(s), you indicate agreement to all our terms. Note: Other restrictions may apply. All requests, offers, transfers, subsequent transfers, sending / receiving, contacts / correspondence, etc. are subject to any applicable laws. If you do not properly meet all requirements, do not proceed.

A. Items received are for use, not for donating.

You should not request an item if you do not intend to use it. Those who violate our policies may be banned from future posting on this site (not just this section).

Top | Question Summary

Q. I received an item, but I don't like it - may I put it back on the site to offer to others?

A. This is a tricky question. You don't want to offend the person who sent the item to you, but you don't want to waste the item. Perhaps you might be able to find someone who can use the item personally (if it is a suitable item)? For more information/requirements regarding subsequent transfers, click here.

Top | Question Summary

Q. May I offer a large number of items in one post?

Top | Question Summary

Q. Who is the "Submitter"? Who are "users"? Who is the offerer / sender / transferor / giver / provider, etc.? Who is the requestor / receiver / transferee / recipient, etc.? Who is the "other party"?, Etc. Which is the responsible party?

A. The term "submitter" refers to the person who submitted a post. The term "user" (or "users" or "participant" or "participants" or "you"/"your" or "visitors" or "visitor" or "individual" or "individuals" or "person" or "persons", etc.) refers to individual(s) using this site (or related materials) and to those who are in any way connected with use of this site (or related materials). The terms "offerer", "sender", "transferor", "giver", "provider", etc. may be used interchangeably and refer to those offering - or who may indicate to be offering - item(s), whether or not they actually transfer any item(s) [or offer to transfer any item(s)]. The terms "requestor", "receiver", "transferee", "recipient", etc. may be used interchangeably and refer to those who may be requesting item(s), whether or not they actually receive (or request) any item(s). Note that the terms "offerer", "requestor", "sender", "receiver", "recipient", "transferee", "transferor", "giver", "provider", etc. are broad terms which apply whether a user submits a post(s) or responds to a post(s), and they apply regardless of the nature of any post/response (e.g. they apply even to any "fake" / "pretend", blank, etc. posts/responses - or any other improper post/response), and they apply regardless of whether or not any item(s) are ever offered/requested/sent/received, etc. The term "other party" (or "other parties") may refer to the other party(ies) involved or to the responsible party (e.g. the requestor / submitter / offerer, etc.). The term "applicable party" [or "applicable parties" or "party(ies)", etc.] refers to the appropriate party in the context of the item in question. All terms above may be expressed in upper or lower case letters. Note that the various terms (e.g. offerer, sender, requestor, receiver, transferor, giver, provider, transferee, recipient, etc.) apply to both those who submit post(s) and to those who respond to post(s). (Note: 'Item requests' may be referred to as 'requests' or 'request' and 'item offers' may be referred to as 'offers' or 'offer' or 'items' or 'item'). The terms "other party" / "applicable party" / "submitter"/ "requestor" / "offerer" / "user" / "sender" / "transferor" / "giver" / "provider" / "receiver" / "transferee" / "recipient" / "participant" / "visitor" / individual / person, etc. (whether singular or plural) NEVER refer to us. Each user is responsible for himself / herself. Some users (e.g. offerers / requestors / submitters, etc.) may be held responsible / liable for others. We are NOT responsible / liable for ANY individual(s) / user(s) / requestor(s) / submitter(s) / visitor(s) / offerer(s) / sender(s) / transferor(s) / giver(s) / provider(s) / receiver(s) / transferee(s) / recipient(s) / participant(s) / person(s), etc. As indicated, by using this site, you indicate agreement to all our terms.

Top | Question Summary

Q. What is the difference between the "Requestor" and the "Submitter"?

A. As indicated above, the term "requestor" refers to those who may be requesting item(s) while the term "submitter" refers to a person who actually submitted a post. The requestor and the submitter may be the same (e.g. when a person submits an item request, he/she is both the requestor and the submitter), just as the offerer and the submitter may be the same (e.g. when a person submits an item offer, he/she is both the offerer and the submitter). One responding to an offer is also called a "requestor" (just as one responding to a request is also called an "offerer"). 

Top | Question Summary

Q. The other party sent the wrong item (or nothing at all). What should I do?

A. We regret that this may occur and remind you that use of this site involves various risks. If there is a problem, you may attempt to discuss the matter with the other party. Remember that use of this site is at your own risk. We do not mediate disputes. You are solely responsible for all consequences of your transactions. 

Top | Question Summary

Q. How can I be sure that the other party will send the item they are offering?

Top | Question Summary

Q. The person who is sending/requesting an item wants all sorts of personal information. What should I do?

A. This should be considered a 'red flag'. If you are being asked for too much information, you should seriously consider whether or not to proceed with the transfer. We strongly recommend a cautious approach regarding all personal information. You should NEVER provide your social security number, mother's maiden name, driver's license number, identification numbers, children's names, pet's name, etc. Remember also that personal information sent via e-mail may be insecure. The person asking for the information may be requesting it to see if you are really who you say you are or, the person may be attempting to acquire personal information for improper - and possibly harmful - purposes. If you are being asked for too much information, you should strongly reconsider the transfer. NEVER provide any personal information beyond what is necessary and proper. By giving any personal information, you may put yourself and your loved ones in danger. Proceed at your own risk. For additional tips and considerations, click here.

Top | Question Summary

Q. If I am requesting (or offering) an item, should I provide my home or work address?

A. Where possible, we recommend not providing any address. If you must provide an address, you should independently research the other party before providing them with this (or any other personal) information. To help protect your personal information, we recommend using a P.O. Box rather than a street address. Even so, providing of any address (even a P.O. Box) involves risk and you may receive unwanted communications and/or be subject to other unwanted items (including personal visits, anti-Catholic literature, harassment, encounters with those who have an intent to harm or deceive, etc.), and/or others may use your information in ways unsuitable/harmful to you. If you choose to provide a home or work address, the decision of which one to provide is up to you. Before you do so, you should carefully consider whether any unwanted communications or other items are likely to be more harmful at home or at work. Remember that participation in any transactions (including transfers, contacts / correspondence, etc.) may be dangerous. Proceed at your own risk. If you do not want to - or cannot afford to - take such risks, you should not participate.

Top | Question Summary

Q. If I conduct advance research, use a P.O. Box and a special e-mail account, and I don't give away any personal information, am I fully protected from the dangers which may occur with regard to transactions (including transfers, correspondence / contacts, etc.)?

A. Unfortunately, no. While these are important steps to take to minimize risks, there is no guarantee that all risks will be eliminated. Unfortunately, no steps you take, no matter how diligent, can protect you from all risks related to transactions. Remember that you agree to assume all risks, whether foreseen or not, related to all transactions arising from the use of this site (or other materials) [including contacts / correspondence (with and from others), transfers, etc.], without limit, and that you agree to hold us harmless for all consequences - direct or indirect - which may occur as a result of use of this site (or other materials), regardless of their nature.

Q. I gave something away and later found out that the individual I gave it to resold it or donated it for a tax deduction - what should I do?

A. Remember that you did a kindness and that God knows what occurred both on your end and on the other party's end. We trust that God will both reward your good deed and hold the other party accountable if they abused your kindness. Unfortunately, however, here on earth, we cannot prevent this from occurring. We recommend that you give the other person the benefit of the doubt and offer the event up in reparation for sins. In the future, you may wish to take additional steps to prevent abuses. Remember that use of this site is at your own risk and that we do not mediate disputes. While we counsel forgiveness, the law may provide you with additional remedies if you seek to pursue the matter further. If so, you do so at your own expense. We are not a party to your dispute. 

Top | Question Summary

Q. I found out that the person I gave an item to requested it for someone else. Is that okay?

A. It may be. First of all, when sending item(s), you should verify that you are sending them directly to the requestor and that the requestor is capable of receiving/utilizing them lawfully (no minors!). Do NOT send your item(s) to any other party. Secondly, if a requestor is seeking your item for another person, they should (as a courtesy) notify you that they intend to give the item away after they receive it from you. You should note that items you send become the property of the other party and may be further transferred by them (even if they do not notify you of their decision to do so). You should consider carefully removing any ownership markings / postal information, etc. before sending items to protect your information, and you also should be cautious about any information on the packaging (e.g. postal information) which may be subsequently transferred to other party(ies). Remember that we are not a party to your transactions (including all transfers, offering / requesting, sending / receiving, contacts / correspondence, etc.), even if information about such transactions is contained on our site (or other materials of ours), and we do not mediate disputes. We are not responsible for any outcome / consequence / effect, etc. - whether direct or indirect - of any transaction whatsoever (including all transfers, offers, requests, sending, receiving, contacts / correspondence, etc.).

Q. I have responded to an offer or request in this section, but the other party is not responsive to my e-mail. What should I do?

A. First of all, remember that individuals may check their e-mail accounts infrequently (especially if they have a special account for use on a single site like this one). Also, e-mails may get lost, accidentally deleted, filtered out, etc. Or, persons may be inundated with e-mail and may not be able to respond to each one, or their e-mail address may have changed. You may wish to send a follow up e-mail. 

Top | Question Summary

Q. I wanted a particular item and have since received it, but I keep receiving offers for it. What should I do?

A. Please be courteous and thank the generous individuals who are offering to help you. Then notify them that you have already received the item. Remember that item requests may appear on the site for any amount of time, even if the item is no longer needed. Therefore, we recommend that you include a "final date" in the applicable field to notify users not to contact you after that date.

Q. Why are brand names prohibited? What if the brand name is important?

A. Brand names are prohibited here since this is not a commercial section. You are, however, free to include brand names in personal correspondence (or use the commercial sections of the site where brand names are allowed). Rather than include the brand name here, the item should be described in general terms. Remember that the information provided here is in summary form and does not include all details a user might be interested in. Even if the brand name is important, we think you will find that a general description is usually sufficient. For example, rather than say "Acme Brand Socks", you may indicate that the socks are "thick", "cotton", "white", "size 10", "name brand", etc. In no case should you include a specific brand name here or the post - and all your future posts to the site (not just this section) - may be subject to auto rejection.

A. By "marketing talk", we generally mean adjectives used to describe a particular item, for example: "best ever", "super", "greatest", "most durable", "top brand", etc. Items are not sold in this section and therefore marketing talk should not be used. Please stick to the facts about the item.

Top | Question Summary

Q. Is there any reason it would be preferable to share items here rather than to donate them to a local or national charity?

A. Although a local or national charity may offer a tax deduction, they often resell the items. Here you may have the opportunity to give items directly to those who need them. It's more personal, and you have more control. Also, even so-called "Christian" charities may use the proceeds of your donations for anti-Catholic purposes. Note, however, that there are additional risks involved in participation here. Proceed at your own risk.

Top | Question Summary

Q. Are non-Catholics allowed to post here? Are there any restrictions on non-Catholics?

Top | Question Summary

Q. I am concerned that an individual offering or requesting an item (or providing a requested item or requesting an offered item) may just be attempting to gather information about me or my family. Is this possible?

A. Unfortunately, this is possible. Unscrupulous individuals may post here (or respond to posts) for the sole purpose of gathering information. They may or may not be who they say, and they may or may not live up to what they promise. They may be attempting to collect information for marketing or other purposes. They may be planning to take advantage of or harm individuals in various ways. In consideration of this, we highly recommend that you use extreme caution with regard to this section. We suggest that you use a special e-mail account exclusively for use on this site (e.g. one that you could easily abandon/change should a problem arise) and that you use a P.O. Box to help protect your private information and that you pay any shipping reimbursement/prepayment costs (where applicable) by a private money order. We strongly advise you to protect all personal information and warn you not to give out any personal facts/details, etc. Remember that use of this site is at your own risk. You have no recourse to us for any damages which may occur as a result of use of this site. (Refer also to other questions herein and to the sharing section tips for additional considerations and tips.)

Top | Question Summary

Q. If I am handicapped (or ill or elderly, etc.) and I respond to an offer which lists "disabled" (or infirm or elderly, etc.) as the preferred / required recipient type, am I not automatically providing the other party with personal information about myself? Should I respond to such offers?

A. If you are handicapped and you respond to offers targeted to the disabled, you would be automatically notifying the other party that you are disabled in some way. (This also would apply to other targeted offers, i.e. elderly, infirm, etc.) Do so at your own risk. We recommend extreme caution regarding the release of any personal information. It may be wise to respond only to offers that do not specify a preferred/required recipient type.

Top | Question Summary

Q. Do you verify offers of or requests for items?

Top | Question Summary

Q. I am unclear about your terms regarding transfers, transactions, offers, requests, activities, sharing, etc. What do they include?

A. When we state terms such as (but not limited to): "we are not a party to your transactions and do not mediate disputes..You are solely responsible for all consequences of your transactions", the term "transactions" (or "transfers" or "activities" or "sharing", etc.) refers to any mailing/shipping/sending/receiving of any item, any activity, any correspondence / contact, etc. conducted in connection with use of this section (including any related materials), regardless of the initiating party. It includes posting an offer or request, contacts / corresponding about an offer or request - or any other contact / correspondence / communication - including all contacts / dealings of any sort between any parties, offering any item(s), sending any item(s), requesting any item(s), receiving any item(s), providing any item(s), giving any item(s), use of any item(s), providing / receiving expense reimbursements, follow up, and any other activity / action (or non-action) / occurrence / contact / correspondence / outcome / consequence, etc. which occurs as a (direct or indirect) result of use of this section (or related materials), whether incidental or not, whether completed or not, whether related to the direct shipping/mailing/receiving of any item or not, without limit. Note that terms such as "your transactions", "your transfers", "others' transfers", "other's transactions", "transactions", "transfers", "sharing", "giving", "activities", etc. are broad terms which (generally) include all actions (and non-actions) of yourself and of others. For example, the term "your transactions" (e.g. "You are solely responsible for all consequences of your transactions") does include the actions and non-actions of others [e.g. their sending item(s) to you or failing to send item(s) to you, their requesting/receiving item(s) from you or failing to receive items from you, their contacting you, etc., and all other actions / non-actions / contacts / correspondence, etc. of any party, without limit). The following terms may be used interchangeably (or as much so as deemed applicable by us): transfers, transactions, activities, sharing, etc. The above terms apply regardless of who initiates the contact, and they apply whether use of the site involves posting an offer/request or responding to a post [whether or not any item(s) are ever requested / offered / provided / received], and they apply to any other use of the site (or related materials). The following terms may also be used in a similar manner (and interchangeably): offers, offer, item offers, offers for items, items, item, etc. & requests, request, item requests, requests for items, etc. The terms "offer(s)", "item offer(s)", "offer(s) for items", etc. are broad terms which refer to all actions (including any post / response, correspondence, etc.) and non-actions connected in any way, without limit, to any item request [whether or not any item(s) are offered / provided], and to all actions (including any post / response, correspondence, etc.) and non-actions, without limit, which may include an offer for item(s) (e.g. submitting an "item offer" post, etc.), whether or not any item(s) are actually offered / provided - and regardless of the nature of any post / response / correspondence, etc. (e.g. they apply even to any "fake" / "pretend", blank, etc. posts / responses / correspondence, etc.). The terms "request(s)", "item request(s)", "request(s) for items", etc. are broad terms which refer to all actions (including any post / response, correspondence, etc.) and non-actions connected in any way, without limit, to any offer [whether or not any item(s) are requested / received], and to all actions (including any post / response, correspondence, etc.) and non-actions, without limit, which may include a request for item(s) (e.g. submitting an "item request" post), whether or not any item(s) are actually requested / received - and regardless of the nature of any post / response / correspondence, etc. (e.g. they apply even to any "fake" / "pretend", blank, etc. posts / responses / correspondence, etc.). Note also that the terms "offer", "item offers", "item", etc. may include the submitter / offerer (and anything else in any way connected with/to the offer / offerer / submitter, without limit - including, but not limited to, mailing/shipping, packaging, addressing, providing of items, disbursement or non-disbursement of items, receipt or non-receipt of items, use of items, research, activities, follow up, correspondence / contacts, etc.) and the terms "request", "item request", etc. may include the submitter / requestor (and anything else in any way connected with/to the request / requestor / submitter, without limit - including, but not limited to, receiving, unpacking, receipt or non-receipt of items, use of items, research, activities, follow up, correspondence / contacts, etc.). Also note that the term "contacts" may be used for convenience to refer to all forms of contact / correspondence / communication / dealings with others, etc. in any form - regarding any matter, regardless of the initiating party. Also note that we may list various related terms (e.g. "transaction", "transfer", "activities", etc.) together in a single sentence even though one or more of the terms may include the other terms (e.g. "activities" includes "transfers", "transfers" may include "subsequent transfers", etc.). Listing such terms individually does not imply that they refer to separate and distinct items. Also, note that some items may be synonyms (e.g. offerer / sender, requestor / recipient, etc.), yet each may be listed separately on occasion. This does not necessarily mean that such terms are different, but they may both be listed to make a particular point even more clear for the reader. Note: For more information regarding the terms "Submitter", "requestor", "offerer", "sender", "transferor", "giver", "provider", "receiver", "recipient", "transferee", etc., click here 

Top | Question Summary

Q. I once offered or requested an item, and now I receive a lot of anti-Catholic e-mail. What should I do?

A. Unfortunately, this may occur. We strongly recommend that you use a special e-mail account exclusively for use on this site (e.g. one that you could easily abandon/change should a problem arise). We further recommend applying a filter to your e-mail so that you may avoid viewing offensive e-mail. You may consider reporting incidents as applicable to law enforcement authorities. You should also keep in mind Our Lord's words: "Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven." (See MT 5:11-12). And also, "I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father" (See MT 5:44-45).

Top | Question Summary

Q. I have many items to share. How many may I offer here?

A. We recommend that you offer only one item at a time (to help minimize your risk). However, you may offer as many items as you want, up to the maximum number permitted in this section. Click here for additional assistance.

Top | Question Summary

Q. Do you notify us of any legal requirements relating to transactions (including offers, requests, transfers, giving / sending / receiving, contacts / correspondence, etc.)?

A. No. Users are entirely responsible for ascertaining information on and following all legal requirements (including postal requirements, tax regulations, etc.) related to any transactions (including all offers, requests, transfers, giving / sending / receiving, contacts / correspondence, etc.). Note that requirements may vary depending upon the submitter / offerer / requestor's location, item being transferred, etc. We do not provide any legal information or advice. Please do not contact us for any legal information or advice.

Top | Question Summary

Q. I am requesting or offering an item and the other party is being unreasonable. Can you help?

A. No. We are not a party to your transactions. We do not get involved in your dealings with others or mediate disputes. Participation is at your own risk. Please do not contact us regarding problems with the other party.

Top | Question Summary

Q. I am requesting or offering an item and the other party didn't do what they promised. Can you help?

A. No. We are not a party to your transactions. We do not get involved in your dealings with others or mediate disputes. Participation is at your own risk. Please do not contact us regarding problems with the other party.

Top | Question Summary

Q. I am requesting or offering an item and the other party is not responding to my e-mail. Can you help?

A. No. We are not a party to your transactions. We do not get involved in your dealings with others or mediate disputes. Participation is at your own risk. Please do not contact us regarding problems with the other party.

Top | Question Summary

Q. What does it mean that Catholic or traditional items may receive preference?

A. This means that we may give preference to offers of or requests for Catholic items, especially traditional Catholic items. For example, an offer of (or request for) a rosary may receive preference over, say, an offer of (or request for) a child's toy. This may especially occur, for example, if we are restricting the number of records or if we are behind in processing (or for any other reason).

Top | Question Summary

Q. Can I participate in this section without including my e-mail address?

A. If you offer or request an item, an e-mail address will be required in order to contact you regarding availability, terms, etc. Please note that, for your protection, we recommend a cautious approach to providing e-mail information and we generally recommend that you obtain a special e-mail account for use on this site. For additional considerations regarding the risks of providing e-mail addresses, click here. If you do not wish to include your e-mail address, you will be unable to participate in this section.

Top | Question Summary

Q. I know that providing my e-mail address involves risk. What do you suggest to minimize these risks?

A. We recommend that you use a special e-mail account exclusively for use on this site (e.g. one that you could easily abandon/change should a problem arise). For additional considerations and tips, click here

Top | Question Summary

Q. I have been contacted about my offer or request, how should I respond?

A. We recommend that you respond courteously and quickly, and with due caution. Remember that we are not a party to your transactions and do not get involved in your dealings with others or mediate disputes. Please do not contact us regarding your responses to others (or their responses to you).

Top | Question Summary

Q. I received too many responses regarding my offer or request, what should I do?

A. Please be courteous and, as possible, attempt to respond to all appropriate incoming messages. It may be helpful to create a standard message to save time. Remember that posts may appear on the site for any amount of time, even if the post is no longer applicable. Therefore, we recommend that you include a "final date" in the applicable field to notify users not to contact you after that date. Unfortunately, however, there is no guarantee that you will not be contacted after that time. Note that we cannot honor requests to remove posts which are no longer applicable.

Top | Question Summary

Q. It says that the "amount charged should not greatly exceed your cost to ship". What does this mean?

A. Since items are not sold here, the amount that an individual charges for the transfer of an item should not greatly exceed the amount it actually costs to ship the item. You should not profit from transferring items here. As an illustration, if it costs $3.00 in postage to ship an item and $1.00 for packaging, you may require reimbursement of $4.00. You may also add other small amounts for phone calls, gasoline, and other costs involved in the transfer (to be determined by you and agreed to in advance by the transferee), however, the total amount should not greatly exceed the cost to package and ship the item ($4.00 in the above illustration). None of the amount collected should be "profit". All of the funds collected should be for reimbursement of actual expenses occurred as a result of the transfer. If you wish to sell items, do not list them here. Instead, consider placing an inexpensive ad in one or more of the commercial sections of this site. Note that if you violate our policies, all your future posts to this site (not just this section) may be subject to auto rejection.

Top | Question Summary

Q. How can I tell the other party the amount of required shipping reimbursement if I don't know how much it will cost to ship the item?

A. You should contact the postal service (or other carrier) for rate information, packaging information, etc. before notifying the other party of the amount of reimbursement required. Be certain that the rate will not change before you are able to ship the item.

Top | Question Summary

Q. When I offer an item, am I required to ship it by the least expensive (or any particular) carrier or by any particular method (i.e. first class mail)?

A. We do not require that you ship the item via any particular carrier. You may ship the item as desired or as arranged with the recipient (as permitted by law).

Top | Question Summary

Q. I was charged more for shipping than what the sender spent to ship the item. Is this acceptable?

A. First of all, remember that the sender may have required reimbursement of other costs related to their shipment to you which may be acceptable (e.g. reimbursement for appropriate packaging, phone calls, etc.). The total amount, however, should not greatly exceed the cost to ship the item (see above question). If the amount greatly exceeds this cost, you may attempt to discuss this matter with the other party. Remember that they are not to sell items in this section. Note: Those who violate our policies (e.g. by attempting to profit by use of the sharing sections) may be banned from future posting on this site (not just this section). Should you experience problems, you may attempt to work them out with the other party. As applicable, you may seek legal remedies. Remember also that we are not a party to your transactions and do not mediate disputes. You are solely responsible for all consequences of your transactions.

Top | Question Summary

Q. The amount I paid for shipping reimbursement is more than the item is worth. What should I do?

A. Unfortunately this may occur. Users are advised to consider this possibility in advance of any transfer. If you have a dispute regarding a transfer, you may attempt to work it out with the other party. Remember that we are not a party to your transactions and do not mediate disputes. You are solely responsible for all consequences of your transactions.

Top | Question Summary

Q. Should I require an advance shipping prepayment or a shipping reimbursement?

A. The terms of all transfers are up to the parties involved and are governed by applicable laws. You should carefully consider all aspects of your transfer before engaging in any transaction. For example, if you require shipping reimbursement, what if the other party never reimburses you? If you want shipping prepayment, why should the other person trust you enough to send you funds in advance? You should reflect on these and other issues before participating in any transactions. Remember that all participation is at your own risk.

Top | Question Summary

Q. What payment methods are acceptable for expense reimbursements?

A. Expense reimbursements should be in the form of a check or (preferably) private money order denominated in U.S. currency. Note that a private money order may better protect your personal information. 

Top | Question Summary

Q. What types of expense reimbursements are there?

A. Expense reimbursements may be made before or after the other party incurs expenses. All expense reimbursement arrangements should be specific, detailed, and agreed to in advance by all applicable parties (preferably in writing and containing appropriate original signatures). If the sending party is reimbursed before incurring expenses, the reimbursement may be termed an "advance expense reimbursement" (or prepayment) or "advance shipping reimbursement" (or prepayment). Note: The term "expense reimbursement" (or "shipping reimbursement") used in this section may apply to both types of reimbursement (that is, prepayments or reimbursements made after the fact).

Top | Question Summary

Q. If I use my own money for expenses, how can I be sure I will get reimbursed?

A. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that you will receive reimbursement. As indicated, use of this site involves risks. It is quite possible that you may never be reimbursed for the expenses. That's one reason why we recommend extra caution and prudence with regard to this section. Remember that we cannot guarantee that you will receive any reimbursement or guarantee anything else about any transaction (or any requestor / submitter / offerer / item / request, etc.) and we do not mediate disputes. Proceed at your own risk.

Top | Question Summary

Q. If I provide expense reimbursement, how can I protect my personal information (e.g. bank account number, address, etc.)?

A. To help protect your personal information, it might wise to remit the funds via a private money order.

Top | Question Summary

Q. My expense reimbursement was lost/stolen/etc. What should I do?

A. Unfortunately, this may occur. Remember that all transactions involve risk. The terms of transfers are up to the individuals involved and are governed by any applicable laws. Note that it may be wise to place a stop payment on the missing reimbursement (although you may be assessed a fee). As indicated, we are not a party to others' transactions (including transfers, offering / requesting, sending / receiving, expense reimbursements, contacts / correspondence, etc.) and we do not mediate disputes. You are solely responsible for all consequences of your transactions. Use of this site is at your own risk.

Top | Question Summary

Q. What if I provide the other party with an advance expense reimbursement and they refuse to send the item or return the funds?

A. Unfortunately, this may occur. Remember that all transactions involve risk. Should you experience problems, you may attempt to work them out with the other party. As applicable, you may seek legal remedies. Remember also that we are not a party to others' transactions (including transfers, offering / requesting, sending / receiving, expense reimbursements, contacts / correspondence, etc.) and do not mediate disputes. You are solely responsible for all consequences of your transactions.

Top | Question Summary

Q. What if I am promised reimbursement for my expenses but never receive it (or if I receive only partial reimbursement)?

A. Unfortunately, this may occur. Remember that all transactions involve risk. Should you experience problems, you may attempt to work them out with the other party. As applicable, you may seek legal remedies. Remember also that all expense reimbursement arrangements should be specific, detailed, and agreed to in advance by all applicable parties (preferably in writing and containing appropriate original signatures). We are not a party to others' transactions (including all transfers, expense reimbursements, contacts / correspondence, etc.), and do not mediate disputes. You are solely responsible for all consequences of your transactions.

Top | Question Summary

A. Unfortunately, this may occur. Remember that all transactions involve risk. Should you experience problems, you may attempt to work them out with the other party. As applicable, you may seek legal remedies. Remember also that we are not a party to others' transactions (including all transfers, expense reimbursements, contacts / correspondence, etc.), and do not mediate disputes.

Top | Question Summary

Q. I received the other party's advance shipping reimbursement. Should I send the item out immediately?

A. All transfers involve risk and the terms of all transfers are up to the parties involved (and are governed by applicable laws). Note that it may be wise (as permitted by law) to wait for a check/money order to clear before sending items.

Top | Question Summary

Q. I required shipping reimbursement and the other party's check bounced. Now I am out both the shipping cost and the bank fees. What should I do?

A. Unfortunately, this may occur. Remember that all transfers involve risk. If you can't afford to or don't want to take such risks, you should not participate. Should you experience problems, you may attempt to work them out with the other party. As applicable, you may seek legal remedies.

Top | Question Summary
