At the close of a classified ad, the seller should contact the buyer to discuss entering into a contract for the actual property or business.

There are some things that you may not list or sell on SleepSmith.com. These include:

Wholesale lists and Matrix Schemes
SleepSmith.com does not allow ads which sell information that may be linked to potentially fraudulent activities such as:
- pyramid schemes
- ponzi schemes
- matrix schemes
Often these ads sell information in the form of a book, e-book, or PDF file. This restriction applies to so-called "wholesale lists", which often claim to provide the buyer with almost-free products, usually by encouraging the buyer to either: misrepresent themselves to other companies, or to join online matrix schemes.
We feel that a majority of these ads employ unrealistic claims, create confusion in our marketplace, and generally yield an unsatisfactory buyer experience.
Photographs and Pictures
Your ad photos should never confuse buyers, and should accurately represent the item you are selling. In addition, you should use your own images whenever possible, not someone else's. We recommend that you take digital photos of what you are selling and use these in your ad.
In short, be up front about the nature of the goods you are selling, and make sure your classified ad title, description, and images are not confusing to buyers.
SleepSmith.com reserves the right to modify any listing to more accurately represent what is being sold, and may suspend an ad at our sole discretion without notification or reimbursement.
SleepSmith.com Classified system does not allow refunds for listing fees. You may remove your ad at any time, however, listing fees are not transferable to additional ads or other users.
