    Posted: 21 Jun 2021 at 9:09am


We have consolidated and refined the Trading Rules to make them easier to refer to and clearer for all to understand. Action will be taken from today to ensure that all sellers adher to these policies. Please remember that you trade at your own risk. UKVAC and its staff are not responsible for any trades or sales.

Sales Rules:

1.        You must be the owner of the item and you must have it "in hand" to avoid any confusion if items arrive from third parties that are not as described.

2.        You must confirm if the item is tested and either working or faulty.

3.        You must be clear in the description if any components on the board are broken or missing if selling as "Untested" and/or "Faulty".

4.        You must provide your own images of the actual item you are selling. These can be shared either via the built in functionality provided on the forum (see "Recommended Sales Formatting" below), or by linking to any cloud base file/photo sharing platform.

5.        No auctions.

6.        If you don't know what something is worth - please use the valuations thread first.

7.        Nothing illegal. This includes but is not restricted to: ROMs, pirated media, images, CHDs etc. MAME setups are included in this category and must only contain freely licences game ROMS.

NOTE: We allow the sale of historical Bootleg PCBs, as well as multi-game PCBs with a factory install setup or blank multi-game PCBs. Any exchange of unlicensed content will be considered a breach of trading rules.

8.        Do not create a second or multiple user ID to sell items.

Threads which breach any of the above can, at the discretion of the Moderator/Admin team be removed. Repeat offenders risk suspension from the forum.


Please only use PayPal Goods and Services as payment unless you know the seller. For the avoidance of complications, pay with PayPal goods and services and cover the fee to ensure you have cover.


Sales Thread Etiquette (inc. Thread Post Bumping/Post Dumping):

Anyone posting in any section of the forum that includes (but is not limited to) any of the following examples can expect to be issued a formal warning via PM from a Moderator or Admin:

         Questioning a stated For Sale price, if the price is unrealistic, the item won't sell. If you know the person reach out to them via PM to see if they put their price wrong rather than in the actual thread

         Trolling or other toxic comments, aimed either directly or indirectly at the OP

         Aggressive or argumentative comments that are intended to spoil the purpose or intention of the original post

         Purposely derailing a thread with off topic comments

         Discrimination in any form

         Offensive comments, implications or suggestions at the OP’s expense

         Repeated unnecessary thread bumping; no more than once a week is expected*

         Encouraging other members to contribute to any of the above behaviour(s) 

*Any on-topic discussions that may take place on a selling thread are not an issue, as long as these do not breach any of the points above.


Recommended Sale Thread Formatting:

Please follow these guidelines for selling any arcade items on UKVAC

Subject: This will be the title of your post so make it clear for buyers, especially where the item might be a full cab or just parts/boards.

Please start your post with the terms of sale whether it be for sale or trade. To save space in the subject line you can abbreviate, for example:
FS: = For Sale 

FT: = For Trade only

FT/FS: = For sale or for trade.

Message: This is the body of the post; please include all relevant details about the item and try to be as accurate as possible. This includes any faults or missing artwork/parts as well as the items location. You also need to state if the item can be couriered or collected in person.

You can use the  icon to add pictures of your sale or simply add a link to any of the common file/photo sharing services (Google Drive, One Drive, Flickr, Photobucket, etc)


Please feel free to include any internet sales feedback, i.e eBay names or other forums/user names you trade under.

If you are the seller and you have sold your item please amend the title of your post with [SOLD] at the end where possible. We recommend you leave the prices in place as that helps with future valuations.

If your item is not arcade related please use the non-arcade sub forum.

If you fail to comply with any of the above, your post may be deleted and you may face suspension from the Forum. 

Any question, please PM a member of the Admin/Mod Team
