4) The next step is the pricing step. A little more about how we set pricing:
Basically, posting ads are free to members of the beverage production industry as long as they aren’t commercial sales. Have extra equipment or hops you want to sell, that ad is free to post. Offering service or new equipment for sale in bulk to the industry, that is a paid ad.
Free: Beverage industry members selling used equipment (includes closed breweries if owner is selling)
Paid: Vendors – New or Used Broker that is selling somebody’s used equipment
Paid: Manufacturer / reseller that is selling new equipment
Paid: Unaffiliated seller of their own equipment (homebrewer, auction house, etc.)
Paid: Services Offered – selling services to the industry
When posting the ad you will be responsible for choosing the proper price (free or paid) — we trust you. But note that we will correct you if you are wrong. If you have any questions about what is a free ad versus a paid ad, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
