GPM Marketplace Update & FAQ

Recommended Posts

Members,
The GPM Marketplace has been upgraded to a new system. Essentially, rather than using the forums and making a 'sales thread,' we now have a new system that allows you to list individual items.
The same Marketplace Guidelines still apply, however, transitioning to a new system.
In this new marketplace system, you will be able to list your items, include screenshots, add variants, start auctions, and even submit custom requests.
We hope you enjoy this new system and be sure to read the FAQ and Marketplace Guidelines before interacting within the GPM Marketplace.

 

GPM Marketplace FAQ

Q: How do I pay for the item?

A: You will need click on the "Contact the seller" button and then interact with the seller via the GPM PM system. (Read the GPM Marketplace Guidelines for more info)

 

Q: Why can I not list an item?!

A: Only VIP Members, Verified Developers, and Staff can list items for sale

 

Q: As a seller, how do I deliver my paid goods?

A: After the buyer has completed and delivered the money, it is recommended to use the a file sharing website (dropbox, google drive, etc) and give them said link.

 

Q: Why can't I access certain pages within the user dropdown menu?

A: Those pages are not to be used at all. We are in the process of removing them from public view asap.

 

Q: I feel I was scammed or mislead by the seller / A client committed fraud (chargeback)

A: You can create a deal dispute in our Deal Disputes section. Be sure to read the Marketplace Guidelines before creating one.

 

Q: What does it mean that "all communication must be done through GPM"?

A:  Our guidelines go more in detail, but essentially to protect users against fraud/scammers we require that all communication for that specific deal/item must be done through GPM (from start to finish). If you handle communications outside of GPM and happen to get scammed or any fraud happens GPM can not and will not take any action against any party. So be smart, and always make sure you trust the individual you interact with.

 

Q: What does "Variants" mean?

A: You can add variants If you want to charge for extra features such as "lifetime updates", "24/7 support", etc.

  • All the sales on GTAPoliceMods should be made in the Marketplace section, regardless of content.

Safe Trading

Spoiler

 

To minimize the risk of dealing in our marketplace, we recommend following these steps before dealing with someone on this forum.

Use the Search Feature to search the username of the member you are planning to deal with. If someone made a community alert/deal dispute against the member, you'll be able to find it.
Check the Deal Dispute Subforums for any (open) deal disputes made against the member you are planning to deal with.
Check the Profile of the user you're planning to deal with. You should also check the user's reputation.
Use Common sense! This is by far the most important thing to remember. If something looks/sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

Breaking any of the policies described above will result in action being taken against your account. You may be permanently banned.

 

 

Marketplace Violations

Spoiler

 

To address all polices and violations in our Marketplace please read this entire document.
Marketplace Violations Rules List:

  • Multiple vouching - If you continually vouch for a product or seller in the same thread it will be counted as thread bumping.
  • Vouch copies (free for review) can only be offered to VIP members (or above) to prevent leaks. Giving vouch copies are NOT required.
  • Cross-posting is the creation of the same thread in more than one place. Only one thread regarding the same topic may be posted. Also linking outside marketplace to your marketplace threads is regarded as marketplace cross posting.
  • Vouch begging - asking OP (original poster) to supply a vouch copy if it isn't stated in the original post.
  • Low quality bumping - Bumping of your threads with poor posts. More on that below.
  • Sales trashing - discouraging a sale without proper reason or pointing to the thread of competitor product/service; Customers posting negative reviews is not a violation and should not be reported as such. Users abusing this option will be sanctioned.

How do I bump my sales thread?
You don't do so with LQP and you are not allowed to post/bump/delete either. PBD (post/bump/delete) is where you make a new reply in your thread, wait for another post, which bumps your thread then you delete the post. We take PBD seriously and you can be instantly banned and your sales thread closed for doing so. If you want your thread bumped you should make a quality post that positively affects your sales thread or responds to a pertinent reply to another post. Posts that are not acceptable:

  • Not a full sentence
  • Add nothing of value to the thread
  • Are a duplicate or very similar to previous posts (e.g. restocked whatever OP is selling for the third time)
  • Or are otherwise LQ and made solely to bump the thread
  • That is not an exhaustive list, it is just guidance on what is not permitted.

Can I sell for other members?
Yes, we allow partnerships with non-members. If you're selling for an existing member you both cannot advertise the same service or product.

Can I ask for vouch copies?
Not unless the OP (original poster) has clearly stated that vouch copies are available. This is the rule in the entire marketplace. You can't ask for them in PM either unless OP stated you can do so.

Can I give out vouch copies?
Yes you can but you must clearly state you're offering them in your first post and any stipulations like X copies or you require a PM. If no vouch copies are available we ask that you alter your OP so it reflects "no more vouch copies" or "vouches no longer required". Staff will need to know you did have vouch copies available at some point.

Can I post a Marketplace style thread anywhere I want?
No, you cannot. All Marketplace style threads must be in the Marketplace.

 


Advertising and Paid Stickies

Spoiler

 

Paid stickies are important threads that members pay in order to place on top listing of the forum display.

Most sections are limited to 6 paid stickies in the marketplace section.

Stickies are sold in two week blocks and you can purchase up to 6 weeks. Special arrangements can be made under certain circumstances for long-term advertising. 

To purchase a Paid Sticky click on the "Request to Pin" button on your thread.

Payments will be made through GPM via our invoice system.
To find out more or ask questions please create a support ticket.

 

 

Deal Disputes and Scam Reports

Spoiler

 

GPM Deal Disputes

If you have made a deal with another Member on the GTAPoliceMods (GPM) forums, and you: believe that you have been the victim of a scam; have not received your Goods/Services/Payment; and/or otherwise feel as though something has gone wrong with your deal, there is a process you can follow to attempt to rectify the issue/s.

 

Creating a Deal Dispute Thread (DDT)
The purpose of a DDT is twofold. Firstly, it brings your issue/s to the attention of GPM staff, who, once provided with enough information, can attempt to assist you with the rectification of issues between yourself and any other parties involved in the deal. Secondly, a DDT highlights the possibility of the other party potentially having malicious intent regarding deals, which is useful to other GPM Members who are considering, or are already, dealing with the party in question regarding their own deals.

 

DDT’s are required to have the following information:

  • A link to the other party’s GPM profile.
    • This is to prevent confusion if a username change occurs.
  • Link to the sales thread/post in question, if it exists.
    • If not, please describe the contents of the Thread and GPM staff will attempt to find it using their Moderation Tools.
    • Please also link any DMs that took place between yourself and the other party/s.
  • Search the Deal Disputes section of the forum and link any existing DDT’s involving the other party as the accused.
  • Post all images/screenshots/videos support your claim; include a short explanation for every image/screenshot/video.
  • Add the Username and UID of the Member in the thread title.
    • You can find the UID by going to the member's profile page, and looking in the URL.
    • For example, “https://gtapolicemods.com/index.php?/profile/1-ray/”, the UID is 1
  • Please understand that we cannot get your money back or force a member to complete a deal. Do not PM staff regrading your DDT, all communication should be done through GPM. Please remember that all transactions are at your own risk as stated on our Community Guidelines and Marketplace Rules.

 


Kind regards,

Ray
