    Safe trusted buy/sell SilverHubs

    Feedback can only be given/received by registered Silver Gold or Silver Gold Trade members, against classified sale items, which helps build the Hubs safe trading community. We're developing a fair and safe trading environment where you can deal directly with other registered SilverHubs members, thereby ensuring you get to see their profile, signature, info about their Hubs rankings and trade feedback as it evolves, just like popular auction sites, but without the fees!

    It's therefore recommended that you start your SilverHubs member trading with buying or selling small amounts, initially with registered silver members who have already started to build some trusted profile qualities like;  

    • Good input and conversation on the forums, start by registering for free & introduce yourself with a quick hello on the new members forum
    • Are known to us/ and interact with SilverHubs admin (we'll be adding an extra verification for Silver members we know & have dealt with directly ourselves)
    • Sharing info, good quality images of silver only items to show they're current and genuine - you can include your name and date within the photographs to show it's recent and genuinely yours
    • Include links to any feedback you might have on other auctions
    • Note your facebook profile so that members can further authenticate you (you can share profiles via private messages)
    • Despatch sale items promptly and well packaged
    • Always use a tracked, insured delivery, Special delivery for all items over £50 value *tracking & shipping company url should be added to classifieds listings on despatch.
    • Use PayPal for buyer and seller protection & only deliver to registered PayPal addresses (*note Paypal protection does NOT cover gold for seller protection!)
    • Leave feedback for sales/purchases here on the hubs between registered, verified Silver members
    Follow our fair trading guidelines and eventually we will all build a well respected trusted SilverHubs where we all benefit from fair pricing and fast access to quality silver, dealing direct between buyer and seller.

    The Buy/Sell/Trade Hubs and classifieds are for - you guessed it! - buying, selling, trading.  You can buy sell or trade  - commission free.

    Because buy/sell/trades and feedback are completed directly between registered Silver Members it means that generally items can be bought and sold at fair trading prices eliminating the traditional costs associated with listing and selling individual items on other platforms.  We do not take any sales commissions or make any additional charges for advertising, extra promotions, initial listing fees or auction selling fees

    You are trading direct p2p / b2b - with other registered SilverHubs Silver Members - using our safeguard best practices.  Honest reputable sellers build trusted feedback.  Generally, if buyers & sellers have paid membership to use a trading community, they will want to ensure that they are providing a honest, trusted, reliable service. 

    SalesHubs classifieds listings are designed to be direct to the point buy/sell offers.  If you’d like to learn about silver and precious metals, discuss coin types etc and chat about the metals industry, you can do that free using the information forums.  By keeping the buy/sell/classifieds & SalesHubs sections clear of chat and non related comments it enables buyers and sellers to conduct their trades more efficiently.

    Sell Genuine silver & precious metals items only, anyone attempting to sell fakes, replicas or any altered / non genuine items will be deleted & banned from the Hubs.  Sellers using classifieds should include their town/Country of location + select the correct Country listing, i.e. select 30days UK, only if you are UK located.

    Link policy
    Please do not add links to outbound sites or your own sales, on other platforms, unless you’ve upgraded as a Silver Gold or Silver Gold Trade member.
    Silver Gold Members may post a reasonable amount of links to their own personal listings, auctions etc but please do not add any un-related links or use excessive outbound linking.

    No affiliate business or marketing links allowed, without a pre-approved business or trade advertising license and prior approval.

    Business users & trade links
    Business users can register as a SILVER GOLD TRADE member  thus obtaining a business or sponsor license which enables trade users to link to their own business sites / newsletters etc.  Silver Gold Trade members, businesses and trade stores can be added to the Hubs enabling stores/dealers/shops to sell directly through the Hubs with zero % sellers commissions.  Included your own SilverHubs e-store with free classifieds and 0% sellers fees.
    Businesses & advertisers can contact us  in the first instance to discuss synergies and to ensure a good fit with the Hubs. 

    Please do not post excessive links to outbound sites and any links should be silver or precious metals related and add benefit to the site and reader insights.

    Images / photographs - should all be silver or metals item related 
    Try to keep images to a reasonable size like; 1080 x 600 pix is ample to show your silver, 72dpi works just fine on-screen resolution.

    Social media

    Mentioning SilverHubs and linking back to us, or your own forum/sale Hubs posting is always appreciated and helps your own sales.

    SilverHubs provide a community and trading platform to assist members making trade and personal connections, we do not endorse individual members or transactions. Our systems are designed to filter out spam and any unethical users or activity which will help you make your own safe trading decisions.  Site terms are designed so that only registered Silver Members are authorised to make sales listings in the trading hubs.

    By only dealing with other registered Silver Gold Members you have an initial layer of authenticity in that all members will have registered their details and made an authenticated payment with ourselves.  You should however always carry out your own due diligence and only trade with members and items where you have satisfied yourself of their authenticity.  

    We do not directly moderate individual sales ourselves but as part of our site security policy we are actively engaged in assisting members to build a long term fair trading reputation through use of both our own evaluations and the ongoing feedback and Hubs rankings of individual members. Forum posts are the private opinions of the individual posts authors not the site.
