Why is a Credit Card required to Register?
In order to maintain a safe, secure, and FRAUD-FREE environment for everyone, ISoldMyGun.com requires both Buyers and Sellers to provide a valid Credit Card. We also utilize 128bit SSL encryption to protect and encrypt all data transmission.
We do this to protect, you, the customer, as well as us at ISoldMyGun.com. We feel requiring valid Credit Card information is a secure way to truly identify someone who is registering an account with us, and it also helps deter fraud. Many other sites require this as well. This information is required as a safety check to you so no unauthorized party can create an account using your information. This also prevents Sellers who intentionally plan to defraud others by posting items for sale they do not own, and Buyers from bidding on items they do not intend to pay for. This information also allows us to decline any future business associated with a customer's Credit Card and/or username/email address should suspicious activity arise, and provides means for investigation by using registration forensics.
Requiring a Credit Card also protects us at ISoldMyGun.com. In order to run the site and "keep the lights on", we will eventually have to depend on our minimal listing fees after our promotional period. Doing business through Credit Card transactions also saves our customers the hassle and cost of postage, provides a history of payment, and allows ISoldMyGun.com to receive payments in a timely fashion.
Can I Sell an Item here?

When you find a desired category to post your item(s) in, click "Post Here". When you click "Post Here" you will be brought to the Post Auction Page.

What does it Cost to Sell an Item here?
The cost will eventually be $2.00, but as of right now everything is FREE. There are no hidden fees and NO COMMISSION FEES! The $2.00 listing fee enables you to upload up to four(4) photos of each item(s), set Reserve pricing, set "Pull The Trigger" pricing, provides free re-listings, and a counter with each item. All of these options are FREE at this time. You can sell any firearm or related accessory for whatever price you choose and never have to worry about paying a percentage of the selling price! There are many free classified areas on the internet where you can buy and sell firearms and accessories; however, ISoldMyGun.com is an Auction site that will provide a greater audience and strives to be the most inexpensive. And remember, unlike other firearm auction sites, ISoldMyGun.com does not collect commission fees - if you sell your item, you keep every penny from the sale!
I am having trouble listing an auction?
The most common cause we have experienced is uploading large files/images. In order for the site to properly upload and resize your images, the recommended size and dimensions should be followed: File Size no larger than 1MB per photo and file dimension no larger than "1024x768". This will ensure a successful upload. The web site is also geared toward high speed Internet connections (cable, DSL) so if you are uploading large images on a dial up system (56K), more than likely you will experience a "server timeout error". This is not a problem with the site. If you experience this issue please send an EMAIL and we will be more than happy to assist in gathering your images, description, and pricing info and building your auction listings for you at no charge.
Shipping Firearms or Related Accessories:
All firearms must be shipped to a VALID FFL HOLDER if being sold out of a Seller's home state and then transferred to the licensed Buyer of the firearm. Firearms being sold locally must be sold to an individual at least 21 years of age, who has a valid approved firearm permit. You are responsible for following all Federal and State Laws. Here is a link to the ATF's state firearm laws for your reference.
