what is wrong with ebay / gumtree / craiglist etc etc etc ????????????????????
it seems you want to " reinvent the wheel " - adding a layer of additional complexity to ATS , for no apparent gain
If you can't already tell I see no problems in allowing buying and selling here.
keep all transactions outside of ATS oversight (just between "me and you". )
Act like grownups and everthing will be fine.
What about an announce forum where members and others can discuss the articles that they are putting up for sale/ or want to buy, but the items are sold on regular sites?
