    Hi everyone

    I just posted my first ad in the classifieds and I was wondering if linking back to my bigcartel store would be ok, the rules explicitly say "Please refrain from posting any ads linking back to other system outside of the APUG classifieds" but does that mean other classifieds or any external page?

    It just makes it easier to keep track of how many prints I have and payments more straightforward.

    thanks

    Maybe you should send PM to Sean Ross, or to some of the moderators...

    I would recommend that, if you want to sell prints in the classifieds, then offer prints for sale individually, and if someone wants to buy one, and it's easier to manage it through your site, send a link privately to the page where they can order the print.

    If your goal is to drive traffic to your sales website, then click on "advertising" at the bottom of the page for information about how to become an advertiser on APUG.

    That makes sense, thanks David
