Direct Link To This Post Topic: LureLovers Classifieds T&C UPDATED
    Posted: 22 Nov 2009 at 8:22pm
The classifieds section on this forum is provided free of charge for members personal use, for the exclusive sale or auction of items to other forum members.

Please do not place commercial ads without approval from admin., or items that are listed for sale/auction elsewhere.
Last update 14/1/22 (more changes to follow, looking to make this easier)

If you wish to make use of our classifieds system or private message system we ask that you please provide your real name (first name and last name) and the town/city you are located in within your member profile on the LureLovers Forum and reply in the linked thread below. 
This applies to both buyers and sellers.

Once you have updated your profile information, and have completely read and agree to all terms and conditions outlined in this thread, you should click the link below and follow the simple steps;

Apply at this link; IMPORTANT: Please check your profile

If you have correctly followed the instructions in the "please check your profile" link, your access will generally be granted within 24 hours, although may take longer depending on our workload. The owner of reserves the right to grant/deny access to these features. 

If you are unknown to existing members on this site, you may be requested to provide further proof of your identity before being granted access to classifieds. We rarely ask this however reserve the right.. 

  • LureLovers is not responsible for any advertisements placed on this site or any transaction that may take place as the result of any advertisements placed on this site.
  • LureLovers is not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers.
  • LureLovers does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.
  • LureLovers is not liable for any loss of money, goodwill, or reputation, or any special, indirect, or consequential damages arising out of your use of this site.
  • The owner of this site reserves the right to remove content that does not meet these conditions of use, or is found to be objectionable for any reason.
  • Failure to comply with the terms and conditions will result in removal of ads until corrected, repeat or serious offenders will lose access to the classifieds section and private messages.
  • These terms and conditions are subject to change, any changes will be advised in this thread.

I ask both buyers and sellers to please make sure that you do your own due diligence regarding both the item/s being transacted and the other party in the transaction.

Sales/Auction Rules
Buyers and Sellers;
Both buyers and sellers agree that the final sale price of classifieds listings is to be made public.

Sales Feedback; In the event of problems occuring with the transaction (not paid/delivered etc) please post a message in the sales thread for the item. Members found to be in breach of the terms and conditions will have their access to classifieds, private messages, and general discussion areas removed.

All bids/offers are to be posted in the relevant sales thread (i.e. NO Private Message bids/offers) ; If you wish to remain anonymous in a transaction organise another party to act on your behalf. The member listing the sale/bid on your behalf must also agree to these terms and conditions, and must advise that they are acting on another persons behalf.

In the event that there is a dispute with the transaction the third party acting on your behalf must agree to provide your details to the owner of the
forum or a LureLovers guide to assist in resolving the dispute. Both you and your intermediary acknowledge and agree that in the event of an unresolved dispute your details may be made public.


Payment; Buyers agree to complete payment within 3 business days unless otherwise agreed with the seller prior to making a bid/offer.

Postage; Postage is assumed to be at cost price at the buyers expense, unless stated otherwise in the sellers listing.

Delivery; Sellers agree to ship sold items within 3 business days of receiving payment unless otherwise advised in your listing. (in the interest of both parties, it is recommended that a trackable delivery method is used, although the choice is obviously yours)

All for sale classified ads and auctions must have photo's clearly depicting the condition of the item/s. If selling used or collectable lures you should include several different photo's to clearly show the lures condition on all sides.

We request that you do not use incompatible sales methods together when listing items for sale. e.g. do not list an item for auction and also state that you are happy to take offers - these sales methods are mutually exclusive.

You may however specify an InstantSale
amount when listing an auction. If the auction reaches the InstantSale amount the buyer and seller agree to finalise the transaction at that price, the auction is immediately terminated, and the sale is finalised regardless of the finish time.

If the InstantSale price is not reached the seller agrees to sell the items to the highest bidder as per a normal auction (unless a nominated reserve price has not been met)

Sale and auction end times are based on the stamped time in the posts on the forum, which is shown in the hh:mm format.

e.g. For an auction advertised to end at 9:30pm, any bids made up to and including 9:29pm based on the timestamp in the posts is valid.

This allows all bids up to and including 9:29:59 (which will show in the post as 9:29),
If the timestamp of a post is 9:30pm or later the bid is not to be counted.

If the time appears incorrectly for you, you can adjust your time difference from the server in the Forum Preferences section in the Member Control Panel
Member Control Panel (link at top left hand side of page)

In addition to the above general requirements, the following conditions apply to the listed sales methods.


Must have a clear and precise end date and time including specifying the time zone applicable. if no time zone is specified in your listing, you agree that Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) will be assumed as the applicable time zone.

Have a maximum duration of 7 days.

An auction placed within LureLovers classifieds must be an exclusive listing, and you agree to not list the item/s for sale/auction elsewhere during the period the auction is running on this site.

If you have a reserve price; the amount of your reserve price must be stated in your ad prior to the start of the auction.

Once a bid has been made on your item/s you agree that you will sell the item/s auctioned to the highest bidder at the specified auction end time. (subject to stated reserve priced if applicable)

Both buyers and sellers agree that the final sale price of auctions is to be made public.

Cheers, Tony

For the love of Fishing Lures.

I have made a few changes to the T&C's, please take a moment to read. 

The primary change is that listings are no longer required to be exclusive to LureLovers (with the exception of auctions without prior approval from myself)
Cheers, Tony
