Question on "online yard sale" sales

I have a quick question that I am not sure how to put. I have my company listed on a "yard sale" website. I know now that I wasn't supposed to, but it was 3 months old and I am still fairly new to this. I was contacted by HO and I took the ad off immediately. I had forgotten that is was there so I was a little embarrased. I got am email the next day saying that I could not sell and PC products on that site either. This had me comfused. I'm part of a yahoo group of consultants that buys and sells stuff, and this group does, but I can't sell a retired cookie press or SA plate on a different site. It has me a little confused. I also wonder how they knew it was me, since most of the stuff is fairly anonomous. It is just a local "yardsale" site similar to craigslist. It wasn't like I was advertising or anything. I took the things I had listed down. Any idea why I couldn't list a dish I got as a host special two years ago that I never used, or any other PC items I don't use anymore? It was 4 items. I'm kinda embarrased getting called out by HO, when I didn't think I was doing anything wrong. (sorry so wordy)

It's in the consultant policies and procedures that you won't sell PC through avenues such as this. Even though you're only selling used older items, it's different b/c you are a consultant.

This is what the policy states on page 38 "You may not sell any Pampered Chef® products — current or discontinued — through online auction houses (like eBay.
com) or on any Web site other than your Pampered Chef® Personal Web Site."


If you weren't a consultant it wouldn't be an issue. I know it's embarassing, but it's happened to more of us than you know- esp. with the linking to the PWS thing. You just live and learn :)

Thanks ladies. I never thought about that when posting them. I use that site for tons of stuff I'm selling and never really thought twice about it. Guess I will have to stick with listing stuff here, if I ever get around to it.

I am curious though how we can sell on this site? Isn't it the same thing?

Current items aren't allowed to be listed here, and since most members here are consultants, it's not really the same as a general "buy my stuff" on the internet.
