When selling an item on GunStuff.co.nz the seller must provide all information pertinent to that item if it is known, wherever possible.

Fees and User Account Credit
Users who have listed an item must pay fees for the use of GunStuff's website services if the item is sold. Users attempting to circumnavigate the auction process by using the messaging or auction question system will have their account suspended and possibly terminated if it is found they have sold the item after making contact with the buyer on the GunStuff website. Users who incur fees on their GunStuff members account must pay them without delay in order to continue using the GunStuff site. Other listings which the user has on the site may be suspended if an item sells and the account runs into a negative balance; so it is advised that all members who list items should credit their account to avoid this happening. If outstanding fees are not paid within one week after the sale of an item your account may be terminated. It is in the best interests of all users of the site that fees are paid promptly to ensure continuation of services to other site users.
