Courier or delivery fees
Dear Harrow Freecycle member
A basic rule of the Freecycle organisation is that it is forbidden to offer or to request money for any Freecycle item. That includes courier or delivery fees. If several people express an interest in the same item it is not permissible to auction the item to the highest bidder or indeed ask for any payment whatsoever.
Occasionally we hear of members offering an item and then saying that a courier will have to deliver it, and asking for payment of a fee for the courier. Sometimes there are elaborate instructions about how to make the payment by purchasing a special voucher. Sometimes these arrangements are a scam and there is no intention to hand over any goods. Asking for a payment contravenes our rules, and we would be grateful if you would report all such emails to us by using the "Contact Moderators" link on our group page. In fact, if in doubt always contact us for advice.
