1. It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.

Marketplace Questions

FAQs about the Den of Angels marketplace.

Why can't I view the marketplace?

The DoA Marketplace is reserved for members in good standing who are active participants in the community. These requirements are in place to make buying and selling safer.

After you have been a member for 60 days and have made 40 posts, you can fill out the application form to apply for Marketplace access. If you have any questions about this, please ask the moderators.

How do I add a feedback link to my profile?

First, create a feedback thread in the feedback forum. Call it 'Feedback for [DoA Username]'.

To link it from your profile, go to Personal Details and paste the URL in the Feedback field, then save it.

Why do I get the message 'Please enter a value using 100 characters or fewer'?

The title for your thread has a limit of 100 characters. Depending on the type of item, the title could be automatically generated from the price, company name, item name, size and gender fields. Keep these answers short when you fill out the form – you can always edit your post afterwards to add more detail.

How do I mark a thread as Finished?

You can mark your thread Finished by going to Thread Tools » Edit Thread:

How do I bump my thread?

Click the Bump! link at the top of the first post.

What does a Dealer Caution flag mean?

If the "Dealer Caution" flag appears under a member's username, it means that they are a company rep or dealer who has a resolution thread in the Company Reviews subforum. Creation of these resolution threads is generally reserved for serious situations where a group of customers are unable to receive the products or services for which they have paid. We recommend reviewing the link in the member's dropdown before placing an order with that dealer. Den of Angels is not responsible for any transactions that happen on or off of DoA.

I am having a bad Marketplace transaction – What can I do?

Most of our members are honest, nice people. However, occasionally we do have problems with scammers or members who are acting irresponsibly. For legal reasons, the moderators cannot become involved in Marketplace transactions.

However, you as a member can take several steps to take the situation into your own hands. The first thing to do is contact the buyer or seller with whom you are having a problem. If you cannot resolve the problem or the other member does not respond to your Conversation within a reasonable amount of time, post a thread in the Problem Transactions subforum. Detail your situation, and invite the other person to dialogue with you publicly.

If it is an especially serious situation, post in Ask the Moderators with a link to your thread so that we can monitor the situation and determine if the other member should have any of their forum or Marketplace privileges removed.

Before you enter into a transaction, it is best to check the Feedback forum to find out the reputation of the person you're dealing with. Some other red flags to mind are if the member has a "Being Paged!" or "Marketplace Banned!" notice under their avatar.

Please keep in mind that once posted, feedback can not be edited. For this reason, it is important to think before posting! Take a deep breath and be as clear as possible, and try to make sure that you're not jumping the gun to call someone a bad buyer or seller. Please read the feedback rules for more information on leaving feedback.

How do I post in the doll marketplace?

Using the Dolls Marketplace

There are a few differences between using the Dolls Marketplace and using other Marketplace areas. If you cannot find an answer to your question below, please post your question in Ask the Moderators.

How many items can I sell in one thread?
You may sell one item in each thread.

How many threads can I make?
There is no limit.

Can I edit the thread by going back to the form?
No, the form can only be used when you create the thread.

I'm not sure which year my doll was made, what should I write?
If you are not sure what year your doll was produced, you may leave this field blank and the form will still work. You can also write "unknown."

I use a different currency than USD. What can I do?
USD is the default currency used because the majority of sellers use this. You may edit the thread to use your country's currency, but you must make it you make it clear that the price is in a currency other than USD.

How do I edit my thread?
To edit the title or prefix of your thread, click Edit Thread in the Thread Tools menu. You can also click the Edit button at the bottom of the post to edit its content.

I don't like the format the form makes. Can I change it?
You can add more information and extra pictures. You cannot remove information.

If you remove information, your thread may be deleted.
If you see a thread that has important information removed, please report it by clicking the "Report" button at the bottom of the post. (This is a triangle with an ! in the middle.)

I don't have pictures of my item. Can I post a sale thread?
No, you must have at least one clear image of your item in its current condition. It must be a current picture of your item, not a company photo. If you are selling a full doll, you must include at least one full body shot of the complete nude doll.

My doll has been sold or is on layaway. What should I do now?

Once you have found a buyer for your doll, either through an immediate sale, a hold or a layaway, it is time to move your thread to the Sold Dolls Archive! Please edit the prefix of your thread from FS to Finished so that the Moderators can move it accordingly. To do this, please click "Thread Tools", then "Edit Thread." After you have changed your prefix to Finished, click "Save Changes."

Do not edit the title of your thread after it is finished. Please only change the prefix to Finished. Your sales thread will be moved to the Sold Dolls Archive for reference and will still be visible to your buyer and to other members for a minimum of six months. Altering the content of your sales thread after a sale has been made may result in disciplinary action.

Where can I buy and sell dolls?

If you have met the access requirements, you can buy and sell dolls in our extensive Marketplace.

If you have not yet met these requirements, you may not solicit or engage in any transactions anywhere on the forum.

Advertising or soliciting sales outside of the Marketplace will result in disciplinary action.

What are marketplace status flags?

You may notice that some members have marketplace-related banners under their names.

Being Paged is for members who have an unanswered Paging thread in Problem Transactions. This doesn't always indicate a problem, but do check the member's feedback before entering a transaction.

Unresolved Transactions means that someone is in the midst of resolving negative transactions. They cannot use Invisible Mode or edit their personal settings, and they cannot block conversations. They can access the Marketplace but cannot start new threads there.

Marketplace Ban indicates that the member has lost Marketplace privileges and cannot buy, sell, trade or take commissions on DoA. They do have access to the feedback forum.

If you are in a problematic transaction, please start a thread in Feedback – Problem Transactions.

What is considered buying/selling/trading outside of the Marketplace?

The following things are disallowed when they are done publicly anywhere outside the marketplace:
  • asking if anyone is selling a specific item.
  • mentioning that your item is for sale or trade.
  • answering a "Where can I buy...?" question with your own sale.
  • asking members to sell items that are not listed for sale.
  • asking members to contact you if they decide to sell an item.
  • cross-posting images in the gallery and your sales thread at the same time.
  • soliciting commissions (even for free) outside of the Commissionable Services marketplace.
  • asking members if you may commission them.
  • asking members if there would be any interest in: a group order, a split, a custom manufactured head.
What is NOT considered buying/selling/trading outside of the Marketplace?
  • Signature links to marketplace threads or offsite sales.
  • Discussion-relevant links to online shops that aren't associated with you.
  • Mentioning in a meetup thread that you will bring items for sale; do not list prices or brands.
  • Mentioning that you will have a booth at an event; do not list prices or details.
You may not leave personal feedback on Den of Angels for items bought, sold or traded at a meetup or event.

How can I know if a Marketplace listing price includes Paypal fees?

Sellers are required to state in their sales thread whether or not they charge any fees in addition to the quoted price for the item. Fees must be listed in currency, not a percentage. Sales threads that do not comply with this rule will be deleted. Please use the report button to alert the moderators to any sales threads that do not comply.
