Here is the list of prohibited items so far. This list is still being revised but as we're getting so many questions about it I thought I would share what we have.

Just click this link.

"Auctiva Commerce does not permit the sale of unauthorized copies of books, music, movies, and other licensed or protected materials; copies of material without proper attribution or references."

I sell custom-made DVD-Rs of old public domain movies and television programs. I research these titles on the Library of Congress copyright database before listing them, so as not to infringe on anyone's copyright claims. Still, some sites like ebay consider this a grey area, while other venues are fine with it. I'd love to try an Auctiva Commerce store - can I be confident that I will be allowed to sell here without hassle?

Rob,

I am confused...

if we are able to use our own domain, we are paying for the software to run the shop etc etc why are there restriced items at all??

Why am I unable to sell fireworks??

What is the reasoning behind prohibiting items at all?

Primarily because of the extra legal expense and exposure we'd incur. We could allow all these items but we'd have to charge everyone else a lot more fees in order to do so.

So to be clear on at least one category - DVD-Rs, yes or no on Auctiva Commerce? Rob

So...
Adult DVDs & Toys are a NO. Dang it. I wish that was not the case, but I do understand the legals. If we are not allowed Adult Items, are we allowed to mention or have links to where our Adult Items ARE available?

Would it be possible to charge those fees to those who wish to sell that stuff?

I was wondering why under the

"Firearms, Weapons and Knives
crossbows, hand weapons and throwing knives are not permitted on Auctiva Commerce."

section, Crossbows and Throwing Knives are not permitted.

Crossbows are legitimate and legal hunting weapons and crossbow hunting is a growing sport. As knife throwing is also a growing sport.

I can understand why belt buckle knives, sword canes, throwing stars and spikes are prohibited. But, Even eBay allows crossbows and throwing knives as these are legal weapons and are for sale to buyers that are 18 years of age or older. So why would these be prohibited?

Additionally, what would be the exact definition of hand weapon that is being used? Is this for hand guns or is this for any weapon that is wielded by hand e.g. swords, daggers, fixed blade knives, etc...?

I would also like gun accessories explained more. I would like to sell hunting items that may fit that category. Rifle Scopes, mounts and slings are all accessories, but are perfectly legal anywhere. Also Knives used for hunting. Please explain this area better. Thank You.

eBay has an adult or mature section, what extra legal fees and exposure (no pun intended) would that entail?

As with Atlas Films, I sell reproductions of items in the public domain. Will I be able to use Auctiva Commerce, or does the prohibition extend to thing that once were, but no longer are, under copyright?

Jenny,
Ebay has no extra fees, but does have a lot of BS rules that seem to be subjective to the individual Ebay employee's interpretation. I, like most folks interested in Auctiva Commerce, are fed up with Ebay.

Veloce, I think Auctiva's silence speaks volumes, don't you? Although it is a Holiday weekend... Good luck!

As stated in a previous thread that has gotten no responses...I have a personal protection store that sells pepper spray & stun guns among other things on Ebay and have no problems as long as I say which States they cannot be shipped or bought in. Ebay has no problems, but it's on Auctiva's prohibited list....what gives?

Been trying to get some help as is SafetyKing. I sell pet supplies and occassionally show puppies. I ship none. I have to meet the people in person or I won't sell a pup to them. I am seeing animals are not allowed. They are allowed in ProStores. Is there any way around this. I would like to feature my show dogs on this website or if I can't do that can I put a link on my auctiva store that points to another website that I advertise my pups on.

Can you be more specific on this prohibition:

Government IDs and Licenses
Government IDs and licenses, or items that claim to be, or that look similar to government identification documents are not permitted on Auctiva Commerce. Government-issued medals are also not permitted.

For example, would a 1926 Hupmobile registration be permitted?

As Spencer indicated, we are still reviewing these items to be included in the prohibited list.

As written, DVD-Rs of materials not licensed or protected would not fall under these restrictions.

Also, materials adult in nature may not be listed in a manner that permits viewing by minors.

Perhaps we need to revisit the wording so as not to be confusing.

Rodger,

Is there a way to list adult items so as NOT to be viewed by under 18's?

The section cited deals with identifications and licenses and thus the 1926 Hupmobile registration would not fall under this category.

However, under Government and Transit Uniforms section indicates a prohibition of government documents. a registration form would be considered a government document.

The Auctiva staff may want to do some proofreading... looks like a couple of "not"s got left out.


"Promote Intolerance or Hatred

Auctiva Commerce will permit or allow promotion or support membership in terrorist groups or other organizations prohibited by law"

"Protected Cultural Items

Auctiva Commerce will permit Materials covered by the UNESCO 1970 Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property or otherwise restricted by law from sale, export or transfer."

How about a type of credit card validation. Where someone wanting to enter your adults only section has to provide a valid credit card number. The card is validated and the customer is allowed into the adults only section. This would be a credit card validation only and not an actual charge to the customers credit card. It would work for age verification, unless someone under 18 has a credit card on their parents account and I'm pretty sure that anyone that has their card on a parents account would probably not want to have adult entertainment items show up on their cards sub-account.

I am really excited about Auctiva Commerce and will definately open a storefront as soon as it comes on line! Looking at the price structure, I would have made more money for myself in both my worst and best months!

I hope you understand that I am writing this to help and not in any way to pick or complain.

I read the Prohibited Items list and I saw one that you may want to tweek.

"Teacher's Edition Textbooks

Teacher’s editions of textbooks and solutions manuals that are intended solely for use by teachers are not permitted by Auctiva Commerce."

I homeschooled my daughter from kindergarten through high school and there are hundreds of curriculum on the market for homeschoolers. They all have teacher's editions and solutions. The number one way homeschoolers buy their curriculum, new and used, is online. You do not have to be a certified teacher to buy it. I was able to recoup a great deal of the money I spent on curriculum and the teacher's editions and solutions by selling it on eBay. I would hate to see you miss out on that market and the people who need to sell theirs miss out on Auctiva Commerce as a way to sell it. eBay made hundreds of dollars on my sales of those items that I would have been able to keep for myself if Auctiva Commerce would have existed then.

Could you maybe change the prohibited items on "Teacher's Edition Textbooks" to read

Teacher’s editions of textbooks and solutions manuals that are intended solely for use by 'certified' teachers are not permitted by Auctiva Commerce.

You could also add, 'Homeschool curriculum of all kinds not resticted by law will be allowed if sold to adults over 18 years of age.' ...if you are worried that students may try to buy it to cheat, although if they had a mind to do it they could buy it right from the manufacturer.

Again, I am only trying to offer a suggestion. Home Schoolers try to be thrifty and buying used and unused curriculum online is their main source.

Thank you and I can't wait for Storefronts to come online!
