Group Guidelines for Buy, Swap, and Sell

Yarra Plenty Waves is thrilled to introduce our Buy, Swap, and Sell Facebook group, providing our community with a platform to trade swimming-related equipment and club uniform items.

SALE Process:

  • Comment "SOLD" and contact the seller for pick-up arrangements.

  • Admin facilitates the forum but is not responsible for resolving issues between sellers and buyers.

  • Sellers consistently reported for misleading descriptions may be removed.


  • Comment "SOLD," message the seller, arrange pick-up, and follow through.

  • Comment "NIL" (next in line) if someone got to it before you.

PAY with CASH:

  • Cash is the preferred payment method; discourage direct deposits or PayPal.


  • This is not a retail site; guarantees and refunds are not applicable.

  • Buyers must check items thoroughly before paying cash.


  • Delete posts once the item is SOLD and collected.

  • Admin will remove posts older than 3 months when time permits.


  • Post details of what you're looking for, and members can comment or message you directly.


  • Maintain respectful and polite comments; aggressive or misleading comments will be removed.

  • Multiple posts about the same community issue will be deleted, leaving only one for clarity.
