    Exclamation Shipping Prefix

    You now have the ability to add a "shipping prefix" to your thread title. When creating a new thread in the "Items for Sale" section you can choose to show where you are willing to ship. Currently the options are:


    • No Prefix
    • International
    • USA
    • EU
    • US + Canada
    • Canada
    • UK
    • CONUS
    • Australia


    Please let me know if there are any other shipping options required

    It is not yet mandatory, but people will be able to filter using the prefixes, so it can be easier for members to find threads that are relevant to them.

    You can change your current listing to support this by going to Edit Post, and then Go Advanced.

    Thank you

    Grant

    Much appreciated, Grant!

    Edit: what about the swap board?
    Why only the sales board?

    I tried editing my thread in the swap board but didn't see these prefix choices. Also tried starting a fresh one there and same results.

    I've just done it on the sale board for now as a test, but I think the swap board would be a good idea too. Will look into tomorrow

    Grant, you are way cool !

    I wish we could add multiple prefixes. I ship to USA, Asia & Australia. I don't want to add just Australia so I chose USA.

    Maybe add an Asia ?

    Can you make combo pack prefixes or the ability to append additional ?

    The only concern I would have is that this would turn into a pretty big prefix ... it's already pretty big, if you just choose US+CAN. It will start to overtake too much of the subject line, in my opinion. Is there perhaps a way to make it smaller than the subject font, or maybe go with just the flags OR letters? Just some thoughts -- I think the idea is great overall. Thanks!

    Good point, my dear. Perhaps he can micro them a bit.

    Sadly the software only allows for one prefix. This is an interim measure though - I have future plans!

    its pretty simple to use, yet some people seem hell bent on ignoring it, and making it a pain in the ass to keep clicking on their sales, to find theyre conus only.

    make it a rule!!

    I suggest using the International prefix, and specifying in your post where you can ship.
