Just curious if linking ebay auctions(with a discount for BGG members who win)is against the rules/considered bad manners? If there is not an issue with it, where is the appropriate place to post?

Thanks bgg community!

eBay auctions can be added to the eBay module on the game pages. I don't know how you'd give a discount for BGG members; you'd need to post that in the listing/work that out on the eBay side.

The better option would be to skip ebay and just list them here first. This in effect gives a benefit to the BGG community to have first dibs as well as a price break built into your asking price. Should the item not sell here you can then list those items on ebay for a higher price, etc.

BGG would get nothing out of that, as far as I know. Ebay and Paypal would get their fees, the BGG user would get the discount (if you could even find a way to arrange that)... but unless BGG got some kind of referral kickback for clicks on the auction link, it would get nothing.

If you sold them on BGG, BGG would get 3%, Paypal would get its fees, Ebay wouldn't get anything, and you could build the BGG user discount into your price.
