This website is intended to be a friendly, enjoyable, and useful experience, but as with anything concerning any kind of transaction, there are risks involved and we strongly advise you to understand all of these terms before joining. The Dealers Den reserves the right to update the Terms and Conditions at any time
- Registration - Click on the "Sign up" link found in the header. Fill out the information required and submit. You will receive an e-mail shortly asking you to verify your e-mail address. If you do not receive an e-mail within a few minutes make sure to check your spam or junk folders. If you still have not received an e-mail please contact us through the contact form and we will get you manually registered. Also, please be advised that some e-mail providers such as School/College e-mail accounts and some Free Services will block our address by policy. Please make sure to white list our e-mail to ensure delivery but we cannot guarantee delivery to some accounts due to policy out of our control. Please contact us directly for assistance registering.
- Account Verification - Once registered, users will be required to verify their identity (Name, Address, etc) in order to buy or sell. Please make sure your profile on The Dealers Den (Name, Address, E-mail) Matches the PayPal Verified Address and must include real information. Using fake information with PayPal to get past verification will be reported to PayPal and your account with us will be suspended. If a payment reversal or dispute is filed, your account will be immediately suspended.
- To automatically verify, you can use our verification system which uses a one-time payment via PayPal of $2.50. Paypal payment notifications are not always instant and can take a few hours for our site to get this notification. If after the payment for verification is made and the account is not verified, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not attempt to re-verify the account. While we cannot refund this payment, once verified you will receive a $2.50 credit on your Dealers Den Account which can be used on feature auction listings for sellers. Any funds accumulated from this verification will be used to maintain the site licenses, fees, and future updates.
Why the Fee? - The Dealers Den has always tried to maintain the site free of charge to all of it's users. All costs of operating, maintaining, and user support on the site has been without pay, however, due to many fraudulent users/bidders or scammers trying to sign up, we needed to implement a user verification system. We hope that with this system in place, we will prevent the sign up of fraudulent bidders and provide a safer space for sellers to list their auctions.

About Account Suspension.
- Account suspension can apply to offenses either by buyer or seller. Depending on the severity of the offense, a determination will be made by our staff in the best interest of the website. The general rule of thumb is a three strikes policy. As a buyer or seller if you are reported three times for not following through with a sale or purchase, you will be notified the first time and reminded of the policies. The Second offense will be grounds for suspension. As a seller, any pending auctions will be closed along with any store listings and as a Buyer, any bids made will be null and void and the account suspended.
