GON Classifieds Rules & Guidelines
New Member Policy
Effective immediately, new members who join our community will not be able to post ads or respond to ads until they purchase a GON subscription. New members can purchase a monthly subscription for $2.99 to satisfy this requirement.
Once your subscription expires (or you cancel), you will still be able to post ads and respond to ads.
This isn't about making money for us. Our testing has shown that requiring a small payment up front is a big deterrent that goes a long way toward keeping all of the scammers out. We hope this new policy will result in a significant improvement to the quality of the ads you see and a much better Classifieds experience for all of our members.
Please note: If you created your account on GON.com before May 26, 2022, this new rule does not affect you. Free Members (you've created a user name and password) who joined before May 26 will continue to have full access to the GON Classifieds and do not need to purchase a subscription to post or respond to ads.
Important Information for GON Forum Users
If you want to post ads on behalf of a commercial business, home business or hobbyist business, you must purchase a listing in the GON Business Directory.
Only businesses that have a listing in the GON Business Directory are allowed to post on the GON Classifieds.
All business ads should be designated as a "business" ad type when posting.
Picture Orientation Problems
Smart phones can sometimes be a little too smart for websites and try to automatically re-orient pictures. To take photos that appear properly, hold your phone horizontal with the phone's camera in the top left corner of the phone. If you hold the phone vertically or upside down, it will try to automatically turn the photo to the wrong orientation when it is uploaded. We try to fix these orientation issues after an ad is posted, but it can take us a while to get to it.
Guidelines to Help Avoid Online Scams
• Deal locally and face-to-face.
• Beware of offers that involve shipping.
• Never wire funds via Western Union, Moneygram, or any other wire service.
• Do not accept cashier/certified checks or money orders. Banks cash fakes and then hold you liable.
• Never give out financial information: bank account, social security number, Paypal account, etc.
• Transactions are between users only. No third party provides a guarantee.
• Ask for a phone number and talk to the seller before purchasing any item.
• Do not purchase items sight-unseen.
Classified ads are posted by individuals as is, with no guarantees by this site. We will not provide user contact information. Georgia Outdoor News is not involved in any transaction and does not handle payments, guarantee transactions, provide escrow services, or offer any protections or certifications.
The intent of GON Classifieds is to provide an environment for individuals to buy, sell and trade. When uploading a listing, users must select “Personal” or “Business.” Classifieds is not an environment to promote general commercial products or services, but rather to sell items. Businesses are required to have a Business Directory listing on GON.com to be eligible to post on GON Classifieds.
