Does Value equal Money?
No... Value is a subjective expression, based upon the desire either to make relative trade proposal offers (picking a higher value) or wanting to receive relative trade proposal offers (picking a lower value)
What is a Value?
Value is a non-monetary expression, that limits which items can be offered to one another. Value is expressed relative to what other users are choosing as their values. A higher value enables a user to propose a trade offer to another item of equal or lesser value.
What is a “Suggested Value”?
Suggested values, represent hypothetical values. Offered for new or novice users, to speculate about hypothetical trade offers. “Suggested Values” are not intended to reflect actual values currently being chosen on Votrust.
How do I choose a Value?
Values can be chosen based upon what one perceives to be as the “average” or “going value”, for similar items. One can then either choose a value higher than the “average” or lower than the “Average”... For example, if the average is 1000, choosing a value of 500 for your item would allow proposal offers to be more easily made, against your item.
Which Value is better?
Both “high” and “low” valued items offer different benefits. One who prefers using low values to encourage offers to be made against their item, may not wish to choose the absolute lowest value, to prevent nuisance offers. Users who “overvalue”, may prevent “good” or “fair” trade offers from being proposed against their item.
Are Accounts free?
Yes…. Accounts are free.
Can I preview listings, that I have made?
Yes… Once a listing is created, the listing may be previewed in the “Create New Listings” section of your account. All listings should be previewed for correct information before listing.

What is the return and/ or refund policy?

If my item is accepted first, do I get the trade?
Yes…First accepted proposal offer, gets the trade.
What is a Proposal?
A Proposal is an offer to trade your item for another user’s item.
Will another user "Take back" an offer that they have made to me?
No…Valid proposals cannot be rescinded or changed once offered. Proposals become invalid once an offer is accepted, an item is deleted, or an item expires.
What if I prefer single item offers, or items offered in combination?
Each item can be designated either to only accept single item offers, or single item and items in combination, offers. This preference is selected when the listing is created.
How can I make an offer more appealing?
When creating a trade proposal, users can select to offer a “substitute” option. This allows a user to select any other single item a user has currently listed, of an equal or lesser value, than originally offered in the proposal.
How many times can an item be offered against another?
Once… An item can only be offered against another one time. Once offered in a proposal, Items cannot be offered again, unless they have expired and are relisted.
