Hey I AM Verified my Man!!
Does "local pickup only" require verification? Perhaps a separate swap section for "local only" that does not?
No. Only sub-forums where items can be sold: "Ham Made Gear", "General Merchandise", "Ham Gear for Sale"
The discussion sub-forums will not require IDV
ALL "for sale" listings will require IDV user status. It's simply because the filter for posting in any "for sale" forum will require IDV to be active on that user's account. So by default, posting a tower for sale, for example, that's obviously pick-up only will still require IDV in order to pass the filter to list it in the first place.
Is it possible that a new sub-forum for "pick up only" could happen? Sure... but to my knowledge that's not in the works and I doubt that's on any near-term horizon if ever.
PU only could end up getting more people out and interacting. I sold a transmitter a few weeks ago. We met half way. Had breakfast and a nice eyeball QSO. With shipping expense going up, a longer drive can make sense. A 125 lb boatanchor driven 100 miles is very competitive with shipping and much less likely to be damaged.
"Pick-up Only" exists 100% right now. The seller just needs to be ID Verified
Context of my comment is as a separate swap that does not require verification for pickup only.
I get that - but it's just not very likely that QRZ will create a forum for "pickup only" that is not also IDV required.
Some guy named Craig has set up a site for that.
