  4. Never share your financial and sensitive personal informaiton (SSN, Bank numbers, etc.)
  5. Emails that read very strangely, with poorly formed sentences and grammer are very often SCAMS. Ironically, many international skiers do not have a great grasp on our wonderful language so read it carefully.
  6. Emails that offer Bank Checks for MORE than you are asking for is ALWAYS A SCAM!!!
  1. Initial Seller Contact via Email ....
    The button will link the Buyer to an online email form which he/she will use to contact the Seller. The Seller's email address does not appear on the form for their privacy. Upon submittal, the message (including the Buyer's email address) will be sent to the Seller and a copy will be sent to the potential Buyer. The Seller will respond via his/her regular email application which will contain a reply email address so each party can communicate directly with the other. At this point the SIA mail system is no longer in the loop.

  2. Photo Rules ....
    You may upload up to NINE images at the time you submit your posting via the upload utility provided at the bottom of the CREATE POST form. You may also add and/or change photos at any time after initial posting using REVISE POST. Photos with resolution greater than 640x480 pixels, will be compressed and resized. ONLY .JPG formats will be accepted! SIA will automatically compress, resize and generate "thumbnails" which will show up on your posting.

    Make sure your photos are clear, in focus and show the product well. If possible, avoid using magazine photos as they may not truly depict the actual product being sold and may infringe on copyright laws.

If you are successful at selling, SIA asks that you make a donation of your choice depending on the selling price of your item. This will go a long way to keep the site up and running. All profits will be donated to a disabled sports charity that includes water and snowskiing in its activities and will be posted on the site. Personal check, money order or PayPal are acceptable. Please contact SIA for a mailing address if needed.
