Did you know that in APC Classifieds you can provide feedback to a seller or trader?

Why is that important?

Well, glad you asked! It's important because it helps the people that will buy or trade with the member in the future. Just like in eBay or Aquabid, your reputation as a seller or buyer is important. Positive, Neutral or Negative can be given. You accumulate stars based on the number of responses.

Why should I use APC Classifieds instead of just posting in the Selling Trading forum?

Several reasons. You can provide feedback, you can set up auctions, your item won't get buried as new items are submitted, your product picture will appear in the front page of APC where it is more likely to be seen, just to list a few. You can always make a post telling people you've added your product to the classifieds. That way you're covered on both ends.

So go ahead, click on APC Features and then APC Classifieds. Post your item there. You'll be glad you did.

Can we get a section for inverts? I just posted Cherry Red Srimp in the Aquarium Products. I know that isn't really where they belong but they're not a plant either. Just a thought...
