Buy and Sell HSC Notes and Textbook Forum Rules:
NOTE 1: Items obtained in questionable circumstances:

Obviously, yes you can sell your hard copy of textbooks, or other resources that you have used.

Examples of what is NOT OK include:
  • Electronic reproduction of past exams, notes which you are not the author of etc.
  • Papers that are made only for schools to purchase and are not published separately e.g. CSSA / Independent papers
    including any scanned or electronic reproduction of company-produced past papers.
  • Scanned copies of HSC papers, these are available for free on the NESA website - this includes NAPLAN papers.
  • Any notes that have publicly made free online by the author on BoS (or a competitor website) may not be resold here.
    Competitor notes that were purchased copies may be sold - single copy (to first buyer only).
  • PDFs or scanned print outs of textbooks (or other resources) that were not acquired legally.
  • No item, where the copyright specifically denies the right to resell or distribute the resource
    especially take note for soft resources.
An exception applies to single printed copies of purchased notes (does not generally apply to past papers, except for those that are published e.g. Trialmaths or Atar-Notes). In which case only the first person to purchase should get a copy.

You may not sell CSSA or Independent papers, either hard copy or soft copy, as these are in breach of copyright.

You will be warned with 2 points (1 point for promoting illegal activity and 1 point for disregarding forum rules and announcements) if you breach this.

Common sense should prevail.

NOTE 2: Tips for selling:
  • Don't advertise something that is freely accessible online, people won't buy something they can get for free; particular past papers.
  • Keep the price reasonable. People aren't going to pay $50.00 for a single set of notes. Most self-made notes would be $5-10 per module, and max $25.00 for the whole lot, as a rough estimate.
  • Don't bump your post excessively. Once per 2 weeks is sufficient
Please indicate whether your resources are new syllabus or old syllabus. Please understand any old syllabus resources may need to be sold at a cheaper price as they are less relevant for students.

General Rules for Buy/Sell:
Welcome to the Buy/Sell forum. Please abide by the following rules/regulations. If you have any queries, concerns, or would like to report another member breaking these rules, please report the post or post in the Contact Moderators Forum.

Bored of Studies is not responsible for any goods or services advertised in this forum.

Buyers, please be wary of the accuracy of information given by others on the forum. It has been suggested that there may be members who are impersonating other individuals in an attempt to scam members and make money.

Please note that any threads advertising illicit sales or trades will be promptly deleted without warning.

For all users
  • Keep descriptions and feedback honest and accurate
  • Keep spam out of the threads.
  • If you have feedback feel free to leave it on their post - however, any abusive posts will be deleted without further notice.
  • If you have a problem with another user please work it out in PM, NOT in the thread - if it cannot be resolved, contact a moderator.
  • Consistent abusive behaviour or trolling will result in a ban.
  • This forum is not for commercial purposes.
Rules and Guidelines For Sellers
  • Include a price and whether you are negotiable
  • Include an email address, phone number, or some other method by which you can be contacted
  • Leave a delivery method and (if applicable) postage costs
  • Include an accurate description of the item you are selling or the service you are offering
  • If feedback is left on your thread, it will not be deleted (except for abusive behaviour).
  • Once you've sold your item, edit your post to let others know and delete your thread when all items are sold.
  • You may advertise in your signature, but DON'T advertise on other people's FOR SALE threads or other threads about the Bored of Studies forum (WTB threads are fine)
  • Post your item or service only ONCE. This means only ONE THREAD in ONE FORUM (the sell forum). DON'T post your thread in other forums such as the HSC Forums.
  • Bump your thread instead of double posting (posting your thread again)
  • Do not bump your thread excessively. Most users find once a week is sufficient.
  • When you bump your thread delete your previous "bump" post to keep your thread clean and spam free. This can be done by clicking the edit button in the bottom right hand corner of your post and choosing the delete option.

Users will be warned once, after that infractions will apply
