Extrema Sports Network - Market Use Tips


How do you buy and sell responsibly on Extrema Sports Network’s Market?


Here are some tips for buying and selling on our Market:

Meeting up

  • We suggest following the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for how to stay healthy and help prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) while buying and selling.

  • When buying and selling during this time, please follow local guidelines on physical distancing and staying home.

  • If you're meeting someone in person, we recommend arranging your meeting in a public, well-lit area or a police station. Let others know where you're headed. 


Clean and disinfect items

  • Clean and disinfect any item you intend to sell.

  • If you buy an item, make sure to clean it before bringing it into your home. Learn about the guidelines from the CDC on cleaning and disinfecting products.


Consider delivery options for items

  • Some Market items are eligible for shipping. This means that you can buy and sell items from all over the United States, not just near your location. The seller directly ships items to the buyer. 

  • If shipping isn't available for an item, you can use a pick-up or drop-off service that works for you.


Use online payment methods

  • Buyers and sellers can offer person-to-person payment methods (example: PayPal, Venmo).

  • If you choose to pay electronically using wire transfer or money order solutions, avoid payment links and log in directly through the payment method's website.

  • Keep in mind that cashier and certified checks can be counterfeit. Transactions are between the buyer and seller only, and no third-party guarantee should be involved.


Protect your privacy

  • Don't share your financial information (example: PayPal login and password, bank account info) with buyers or sellers.

  • If you're selling electronics, make sure you've cleared any personal information from the device.


Compare prices before buying items

  • We encourage buyers to compare prices before buying an item.


Verify the item

  • If you're buying an item, make sure it's what you want before you pay for it. For high-value items (example: watches or professional cameras), you can request a certificate of authenticity or proof of purchase.


Don't buy or sell recalled items

  • In many places, it's illegal to sell recalled items. If you're unsure whether the item you're buying or selling has been recalled, look on the website of the item's manufacturer for this information.


Watch out for counterfeit items

  • It's illegal to sell counterfeit items in most countries, and counterfeits aren't allowed on Extrema Sports Network. We recommend that you review any items you buy to make sure that they're genuine.
