    Question Posting links to my website?

    Am i allowed to post a link to my business website? It does have something to do with gun accessories and ammo. I checked the rules and it said that i cannot post for sale or trade ads, which i don't consider this to be but i still want to be on the safe side.

    Since you're being considerate enough to ask, it probably isn't too big a deal if you include a link in an on-topic post. But hey, I'm not a moderator. I'm just an anybody.

    Sorry to have missed this thread.

    If it is related directly to firearms - yes.

    It would be even better if you offered a discount for OCDO members...

    Absolutely, I am still just trying to work out a discount program with PayPal for my website, But if you guys find the same product cheaper anywhere else let me know where and i will try to beat the price!

    I am also trying to update the site as much as possible, there is still tons and tons of products to be posted on my website!
    If you guys don't see what your looking for don't hesitate to give me a call i will try to get it for you.

    Edit: I have been doing some reading and it seems that PayPal will not generate discount codes for customers. But i think i found a way around this: The simplest thing to do would seem to me to be this:

    1) Give my customers a code
    2) Put the code into the "Add special instructions to the seller" box when making the purchase and that they will receive a retrospective refund
    3) I will apply a partial refund to the transaction with PayPal

    I know this is not automated but it may provide a solution.

    Okay so if you have a PayPal account i will apply a discount for my products, depending on the price of the item/items and how much money is spent. The cheaper the item, the less of a discount you will receive, unless you are buying multiple items.

    Anyone that's a member of opencarry.org can use this code in the sellers instructions.

    Code: opencarry.org/discount

    Items $50 and under 1%-2% discount

    Items $50 and up 5%-10% discount

    And of course if you are in my locale, i can save you more money when you pay with cash or check.

    Also, if there is any product/s that your looking for that isn't on my site give me a call i will try to get it for you. And feel free to critique my sight as well, i love feedback on how it could be better.

    Presume you mean your firearms training course site.

    In so long as a site linked does not conflict with OCDO rules, such is acceptable.

    The easiest way is to insert the link in your signature block of your profile.
    Note that it will not appear publicly until you have posted a prerequisite minimum number of posts.

    See example in post #2 above.
