The change is noted as the Personal Premium Program or PPP..
    They state there will be discounts and exclusive offers for members but since its brand new they will likely hold that off till them can get the metrics they want to review on traffic, existing and new customer acquisitions. Not to mention they will have to deal with an enormous amount of charge-backs when the scammers use a stolen credit card to sign up.

    Sellers could just as easily put their phone numbers in the ad by using a combination of words and numbers.

    Another thing I noticed was it's $3.99 when you link your checking account and $6.99 when you use a credit card. How secure is AL? They are running on AWS so I can at least give it to'em for using that but as it was previously mentioned, "if the prize is shiny enough, they will try for it." There is no website that is 100% secure. It merely a matter of time before someone finds the exploit and if they decide to report it.

    I'll be happy to support the site here since it's a community.
    Yeah we love it when members get around the rules to use personal info to attract visitors to buy there stuff. Yeah we really love that.

    Come on man. If they are doing this it is their business and you do as they see fit. If you openly state to scam the rules I will be looking at every post you make.
    Thats how this works. I am sure they have staff as well.

    The lengths people will go not to pay admission is mind boggling. Not just you my friend just read back.

    All I can say is WOW!!!!! I've read every post. It's $47.88 a year using your checking account. We have been using ACH for most of our business payments for years with no problems. I'm signing up as it is just another outlet for me to buy & sell firearms related items. I am hoping this cuts down on the amount of scams and overpriced items, but not really counting on that!!!! Obviously, INGO is certainly safer and a better group of people to deal with, but I have had "mostly" good experiences with Armslist. I've often wondered when they would start charging, so here it is and for $50 a year I'm in.

    You're welcome to review all my posts. I never stated I was going to do, or that others should do, anything of the sort. Rather stating a possibility. As I recall someone else on here mentioned a possible bypass method for existing posts. Theres no telling if any of it will work. How their algo's are currently working or if they have new ones running now.
    AL has a big scammer issue like other platforms for reselling goods. It's widespread online everywhere.
    I don't disagree that it's a good business move for AL. If I was captain of that ship I would have to consider that bottom line, as any CEO should. As a visitor of their site I was caught by surprise by this. So as a consumer I was not in agreement.
    I'm personally not on there a lot. As of now I won't be joining their PPP. Maybe things will change. Theres always a possibility.

    I tried the AL relisting and was able to edit my closed ad and reopen it.

    I don't believe the mouse was saying you specifically but as to the others who squat that do it.

    Oh please. Yes you did.
    I have been on this rock a long time OK. No knock as we all at one time have considered these things. All of us.
    Put yourself in my chair and read yours and several other posts.

    And yes I can review as needed. Just don't put yourself out front. Thats my point here.

    Ok i get it, pay to play, its there business, but , a polite email to them statiing "I want to support your business, but,not at that price. " will go a long way in telling AL where they stand.

    Well it was a good run while it lasted, for free that is. I never really had a bad experience with armslist fortunately. Just take time to vet seller/buyer by conversing with them a bit and you can tell what kind of person you are dealing with.

    Stupid anti-gunners, always ruining everything we like.
    You can’t fix stupid
