Classified Ad Listing Guidelines

The Dropzone.com Skydiving Classifieds is a FREE service to the global skydiving community. It has grown to become one of the most popular places to buy and sell skydiving gear. We plan to keep it that way and will continue to add new features but we ask that you help us by following a few simple rules and guidelines to keep this place tidy.

1) Your ad must be skydiving related

The Dropzone.com Classifieds are for skydiving related ads. Any ads that does not relate to the sport or industry of skydiving will be removed.

2) List your ad to a single category only

Please pick the most appropriate category and list your ad in that. Any multiple posts will be removed - all of them, not only the duplicate. Ads that are in the wrong category may be moved or removed. No SPAM will be allowed.


Do not post subject lines or ads in upper case letters. Upper case letters are rude and considered shouting.

4) No ==>"Eye Catchers"<==

Do not use "eye catchers" in your subject lines to try and draw attention to your ad. Examples are adding characters like ==> <== or ** ** around the subject. Please type a clear descriptive subject only. These characters make a classifieds board look tacky and is not in line with the Dropzone.com brand of providing clear un-cluttered content. Help us keep it tidy. Ads that use this practice will be removed.

5) URL or Links only

You may include a single URL link in your ad, but it must pertain directly to your item. Abuse of URL linking will see your ad removed.

6) Ebay links

If you choose to sell your gear on Ebay then please do not place and ad on Dropzone.com with a link out to EBay only. See the guidelines above. Ads like this may be removed.

7) Duplicate ads

If you decide to post something that has already been posted again then you have delete your original post first. If a duplicate ad for the same item is found both will be removed.

8) Companies advertising

While skydiving gear sellers are at this stage welcome to list items in the classifieds we ask that you not abuse this privilege. Companies which post listings may only do so with second hand / used items and should not list large quantities of their inventory at a single time.

9) PayPal Fee Compensation

It is against the PayPal terms of service to request that the buyer compensate for PayPal fees included in the transaction. We recommend that the seller include any PayPal compensation he requires into the price of the actual product.

That's it for now...

We reserve the right to refuse service and remove any ad without providing a reason. Repeat offenders and spammers will have their usernames disabled.

Thanks for supporting Dropzone.com and thank you for helping us keep the Classifieds tidy and easy to use for everyone.
