    What about a bartering section of the forum in the "Buy - Sell - Auction" section?

    I'm going to put something to barter in the "Wanted to buy" area. I hope that's ok!! [​IMG]

    Your best bet is to put the item you want to barter in the appropirate BSA section with a VERY descriptive title like:

    "BARTER - Wanting to trade buff orp eggs for other breed eggs"

    price the item to $0 and in the description of the listing say something like:

    "I'm offering these eggs for trade, pickup only. Post what you'd be willing to trade. I'll review the offers and reply with the one that seems a good fit. If I choose your offer I'll let you know and you can click "buy it now" and we'll do the trade!"

    Yes, please create a new BSA listing in the "everything else" section with a title just like you posted. That way, after the transaction you can get and leave feedback! [​IMG]

    Ok, I did it. If you want to delete the post in WTB, that would be great!

    Thanks for your help.
