    Default The CPF Mall - More Changes

    Continued from HERE

    Ok - hopefully this will make browsing the WTS threads a bit easier. I have combined several WTS forums to more closely resemble the format of the CPFMP. Please check it out HERE.

    The categories in The CPF Mall Panjo interface have also been adjusted to match the format of the WTS forums.

    NOTE: Items listed for sale in The CPF Mall through the Panjo interface are automatically listed in the forum associated with the category the item is listed in. Therefore - it is not necessary to browse both the WTS forums and the Panjo CPF Mall in order to look for items you may want to purchase. All sale threads, REGARDLESS OF HOW/WHERE THEY ARE CREATED, are listed in the associated category and forum.


    I hope this makes things easier and more comfortable for you all.

    The CPF's Custom & Modified Flashlights B/S/T forum has been changed to "WTS: CPF's Custom & Modified Flashlights" and the Custom Titanium & Exotic Metals Flashlights B/S/T forum has been changed to "WTS: Custom Titanium & Exotic Metals Flashlights".

    As with all other WTS forums, a Supporter subscription is required in order to start new threads in those forums -OR- the Panjo interface of The CPF Mall can be used. WTB and WTT threads will now go in the other WTB and WTT forum.

    Please read the yellow notices and the "Announcement: Forum Policies and Information" threads at the top of these forums for additional information.

    Remember - Ignorance of the forum rules and policies is not an excuse. They are posted and linked to in various different places around the forums. Take the time to read them and you will be much less likely to make a mistake.

    Looking better already. One question is there a way we can keep the price listed after the light is sold? As it is the price changes to sold.
    It was good how the old MP worked keeping the price listed for reference.

    Does this mean that using the Panjo interface will allow non-supporters to sell with a 3% fee for CPF like you originally talked about or did you just mean that both formats are options for only CPF supporters?

    Yes. Members can use Panjo to sell without purchasing a Supporter subscription. They will be charged the 3% fee if their item sells.

    I bet the 3% fee explains why I was consistently getting an error in Panjo when attempting to list something as free for the cost of shipping.

    Can't collect 3% of nothing. Ended up buying a subscription to list some freebies.

    +1. I think leaving the sale price up would be a good thing. It makes a good barometer for the market.

    I haven't sold anything on the new Mall, so I don't know if the seller can edit a sales thread after the sale is over. Nevertheless, if the seller lists the price in his description it will remain for all to see. Simple.

    Yes, you can go into the thread and edit it and put the sale price back in.

    That is a great idea. I will do it next time I sell through Panjo. I see more Surefire for sale in fleabay and less here. I wonder if CPFMP members are selling there instead of here.

    It does seem like the heard has thinned a lot. I actually really like Panjo for selling a single item. My greatest dislike about listing on forums is having to use a 3rd party photo converter. With panjo its just point and click. Plus being able to see the pictures as I browse lets me view a lot more items than I would have in the old MP.

    The only disadvantage I can see at all with the new mall is that every single item has to be listed separately. That is the only reason I can think of turn out might be a little lax. Even then ebay is basically a list per item too, and they charge fees on top of fees to boot.

    This is no longer the case.

    If you're a supporter, you can start a thread the old school way just like CPFMP. Using Panjo is optional.

    When a Supporter creates a thread "old-school" I believe it's duplicated in Panjo. What happens in the duplicated Panjo thread if a Supporter goes old-school, and decides to list more than one item?

    Non-Supporters CANNOT create threads "old-school". They have to use the Panjo MP. "Old-school" threads created by Supporters directly in the WTS forums are NOT duplicated in Panjo. Panjo is completely bypassed and left out of the equation.

    But...how can you tell? Maybe it was 15% of nothing. Accounting is hard.

    Hey guys,

    I've done a sale already and have one up. Works pretty seamlessly. I like not having to upload pics to photobucket for a sale.

    My current sale has shipping included, but I specify in the description that it's for US only and International would be extra.

    That doesn't violate any rules, right?

    So I was under the impression that WTB/WTT now belong in the dedicate forum but I keep seeing new WTB/WTT's in Custom Ti & Exotics... Am I missing something?

    What happens when you reply to a message in the Panjo marketplace. Does it keep a copy of the sent message anywhere?

    Haven't logged in in awhile but it looks like the CPFMP is pretty much gone. I thought things would get straightened out in a few months but the place looks deserted. Am I missing something? Is there a secret Market Place that I don't know about, where one can buy Surefire stuff like the old days? Did the Zombie Apocalypse happen without my knowledge?

    CPFMP is read only. All the marketplace stuff has been moved over here to CPF.

    Go to the CPF Mall link at the top of the page.

    Although I am not sure I like the latest change to move the Mall offsite. It makes the Mall look less CPF and more Panjo. The fact that there are links to other Panjo stores on the left side seems like a way for Panjo to just drum up more business. It makes what was a very personal flashlight trading community feel very commercial. I honestly still wish we could just go back to the WTS threads only without a storefront. CPF can still the monetary side of the business by requiring a membership to post in the threads.
