Unfortunately due to the forum needing to be upgraded to a dedicated server our costs have doubled. We are now in a position to source extra income to offset these added costs so as of 1st May the below changes will unfortunately be applied.

All vendors need to become a Vendor Sponsor (http://www.nissanpatrol.com.au/vendors.html) to be able to advertise your products and or services on NissanPatrol.com.au. This includes all vendor threads and your signatures. Excessive self promotion of your business for non vendor sponsors throughout threads/posts may also result in removal of those links as deemed by admin/mods so please be aware of this.

There are two levels of sponsorship, click (http://www.nissanpatrol.com.au/vendors.html) here to find out more (http://www.nissanpatrol.com.au/vendors.html).

Please support the forum that has supported you in growing your business. Basic sponsorship starts off at only $99 per year and in most cases you will only need to sell one small item of your product range to cover this cost for an entire year.



As always we appreciate your support and understanding with this change and in return we hope to promote, grow and assist in the success of your businesses!

Hi All, due to some personal issues I had let this go but unfortunately I need to action this now....

I have changed the first post and extended the cut off at 5th August. Unfortunately after that time I will have to remove all non paying vendors threads and signatures promoting your businesses so please support the forum if you are a vendor on here.

For already existing paid up vendors, thank you for your support and your 12 month subscription will start from the 5th August as it has been unfair for you over the last couple of months.

Are you able to setup paypal payment method?
Unfortunately not mate. I got rejected by Paypal for using my family trust account which runs the forum so they won't let me unfortunately.

I'll just have to manage the payments myself based on direct deposit and calenders for reminders of renewals.

Also, Paypal are a bunch of scum sucking criminals and they are now a subsidiary of Ebay which I do not want to be a part of anyway. We, as consumers are now been shoved in the corner and bent over!!!

Just had a gander at PayMate, appear that they may be a better option than PayPal BUUUUTTT they still appear to have ties with Ebay, their fees seem cheaper than PayPal as well

Thanks mate I'll take a look at it. Never even knew about them!

I just sent all existing vendors a PM about this in case you missed this thread and already getting some good positive feedback so thank you for your support everyone.

Hey mate, would prefer the lump sum as chasing $30 each month is frustrating to both parties and I would hate to remove vendors forums because they were late paying and then re install it when they eventually pay each month, etc.

Bit of an administration nightmare for both of us.

Bump...

Last week folks for vendor sponsorships.

I really cannot be bothered going through and deleting vendors posts and signature links to your businesses so please even just consider the standard $50 "per year".

Thanks for your support Westy, just shot you a PM on what I need off you to set it all up.

Bump as well gents, please don't make me spend hours deleting all of your vendor posts and editing signatures this week.

It's not just the members you are selling your products to, we are easily over 100k visitors each month these days so branding your business name/logos is something a lot of you may not consider.

And it works to mate. Have had a sale outside of the forum, because he found my thread.
Was stocked when he rang..

Thanks to everyone's support with this. I will go through the old vendors this week and clean it all up to support the sponsors.

AB
5th August 2013, 06:14 PM
Hi All, I have closed down the old vendor forum so unfortunately it cannot be seen anymore.

I have kept the forum in the database if any vendors change their mind and would like to become a sponsor.

I will spend this week removing signatures so please give this some thought before I manually PITA go through all of your signatures.

Has to be done unfortunately blokes, It's not fair on the sponsors if I don't stick to my word.
