Benefits of Introducing New Users
Any member who introduces ten new users will receive a discount of 40% on the commission he would normally be charged on his or her sales for a period of one month (the charge drops from 5 to 3%). This is valid only for the first ten new users. Any user who then introduces ninety more users to create a total of one hundred will receive a discount of 100% on the commission he would normally be charged for a period of one month. New users who are taken into consideration in order to reduce the commission are considered to be those who mention the member in question as the person who introduced them in the “introduced by” section of the sign up page.
All items uploaded onto Musicbazz.com are for sale, although users choose whether the item is for sale or trade.

Here you will find all your uploaded items.
My Items: thisa is where the items to be bazzed, offered or traded are. By pressing the edit button you can edit the information about the item. By pressing search you can find one of your items. The Unlist Selected button allows you to choose the items whish you do not want to appear in the categories of the site. To bring them back you have to select them and press List Selected or, without selecting any item, List All. Likewise, by pressing Unlist All, none of your items appear in the categories of the site (you do not need to select the items). Your items automatically appear in the categories of Musicbazz.com as they are listed.
Processed Items (bazzed/offered/traded): This is where the items which have become part of a transaction appear. By pressing search you can locate one of your items. By pressing Delete Selected you can deselect certain items, while with Re-list Selected you can bring back your items which are to be sold or traded. In this case your items are transferred to My Items. To be allowed to make use of these two buttons, the items you have selected must not be in the process of an open transaction.
Musicbazz.com considers a transaction to be an open transaction, in the case of bazz & offer, until its transaction status turns to shipped or cancelled, and with regard to trade, until its transaction status turns to shipped.
Orders record all the items you have bought and sold.
Sent Orders: This is where the items you have bought are. By pressing view you can see the stage in which your order is and you can exchange messages with the seller. When the status of your order becomes shipped (by the seller) the site permits you to post feedback.
Received Orders: This is where you find the items you have sold. By pressing view you can change the status of the order and exchange messages with the buyer. When the status of your order changes to Shipped then the site permits you to post feedback on the buyer.
An order can be cancelled if you change the status to Cancelled (Non-paying Buyer) - here the site automatically gives Bad Feedback to the buyer – or if you change the status to Cancelled (per Buyer request) – here the buyer gets no Feedback. In either of these cases your item reappears automatically in the Musicbazz.com categories.
Offers record items you have asked for at a better price and items that you have been asked for at a better price.
Sent Offers: This is where the items you have asked for at a better price are. The view button allows you to see if the seller agreed to the price you sent him or if he has a counter proposal. The site gives you the ability to counter propose prices until you settle on one that is mutually agreeable and from then on the process is the same as with buying.
Received Offers: This is where the items you have been asked for at a better price are. The view button allows you to see the price that is proposed by the prospective buyer and to accept, reject it or propose a different price. The site allows you to counter propose prices until you settle on one that suits both parties and from then on the process is the same as with buying.
If an item is sold during the process of an offer then the process is rejected automatically by the site. If there are many items in an offer and one of them is sold, then the offer continues without the specific item.
Trades list the items you have asked for trade and the items that have been asked of you for trade.
Sent Trades: Here are the Trades that you have initiated. With the View button you can see the items that the other Trader has asked of you, accept, reject the trade or ask for more items. The site allows you to add items until you reach an agreement. When the trade is Accepted by both, then the status is activated and when the status turns to received then the site allows you to post Feedback on the other Trader.
Received Trades: This is where the trades you have received from other users appear. The View button allows you to see the items that the other Trader has requested from you and to select from his/her list the items that interest you. By pressing Request trade the request form is sent updated to the other Trader with the items you ask for, and he/she can accept, reject the trade or ask for more items. The site allows you to add items until you reach an agreement. When the trade is Accepted by both, then the status is activated and when the status turns to received then the site allows you to post Feedback on the other Trader.
When a Trade becomes Accepted by both it cannot be cancelled.
The Request trade button is considered to be the first Accept.
In the case that an item is sold during the process of a trade then that item appears in red letters in the trade and the trader who has requested the particular object has the ability, by pressing Remove Unavailable & continue, to remove the item from the trade and to continue the process with the remaining items or to substitute it with another item by choosing from the More Items list, by pressing first Add Item and then Remove Unavailable & continue. This way Musicbazz removes the unavailable item and adds the other one. This process goes for more than one unavailable items and regards both traders. The same process is followed even if all the items chosen by the two traders become unavailable.
Feedback records the Orders, Offers & Trades which you posted no feedback for at the end of the transaction and they remain there until you post feedback. They are categorized according to type of transaction and the number in the parenthesis informs you how many transactions you have to post feedback for.
