Percent off :- System will auto fill this if price & retail price is updated.

Category :- From drop down select which category product belongs too.

For example if you are submitting Samsung Mobile deal. Then you can use tags like samsung mobile, smartphone, etc

Select Product and automatically price comparison will be added to your post

We have automated price comparison. So if this section is filled then system will automatically show price comparison in your deal

Just type in the product name in this section and select the product from drop down. And you are done.

Before Submitting a deal check following points, if still submitted then it will be deleted

1. If its is a repost or not* (if yes then, will be merged with original one)

2. if it contains any affiliate link / Code

3. Self promotion – any one promoting their own or friends site in forum

Other Rules

Coupons should be posted in the coupons/freebies forum

If any one is found abusing personally attacking, calling others deal bakwaas, or any rude language…. will be given 1 warning, and if repeated it will lead to 2 days suspension. And if repeated again then permanent suspension.

Rules for upcoming deals

Upcoming deals can be posted in advance provided sufficient proof exists for the same (official communication on webste, image proof).
Upcoming deal should have atleast following information

Product name
product link
Time/day as when the deal will be live.

Once deal is live Original poster has 10 minutes to update his/her thread with complete information(product link, exact price & shipping) along with final price to get FPD credits. Or else the first person to update thread with correct information will be given credits.
If original poster fails to do so or if the deal is not live as per time mentioned by him/her,then that thread can be deleted/locked.

Reposts:

Expired/LIVE Deals-
If deal was expired and goes live again, and the original post is not more than 10 days old, then creating a new thread IS A REPOST. Such threads may or may not be merged into the original post. Update the existing thread with a comment to help us. If it turns out to be FPD, we will anyways give you credit. Don’t worry about it.
If a deal remains live then creating a new thread for the same deal just because 10 days have passed by is considered a Repost. Such threads would be simply deleted.

Coupons –
If a coupon code can be applied on an existing deal making its price drop further and the original post is not more than 10 days old, then creating a new thread is considered as REPOST. Please just update the original thread with the coupon (Due credit will be given to the person who updated the post in case the deal goes on Front Page). Such threads might simply get merged into the original posts.
If a different coupon can be applied on a deal reducing/not reducing the effective price and the original post is not more than 10 days old, then creating a new thread is considered as REPOST. Please just update the original thread. Credits will be given as stated above in case the deal goes on Front Page. Such threads might simply get merged into the original posts.

Simultaneous posts –
If more than one user post a same deal simultaneously with complete details, then the latter thread is considered as a Repost. Only the former poster will receive the credit in case the deal makes it to front page.
Please note that short-cut/incomplete posts submitted just to be the first one to post will not be considered even though if they are edited with full details later on. In such cases the next one who posted with full details would be considered as OP and credits awarded to him/her.
But if 2 or more user share deals with gap of 10 seconds along with complete details and if that deal hits front page then credit will be given to both users (but both deal will be merged irrespective to time difference). (But both thread must have complete details along with terms and condition, if any)

Not a Repost :-

Price Change –
If a new price appears for a product at the same store/link (price drops to be specific), then you must create a new thread and it will not be considered a repost. You can also simply comment in the original thread. Though a new thread will ensure that other people are aware of the price update.

Expired/Live Deals –
If deal was expired and goes live again, and the original post is more than 10 days old (it would say something like posted 10 days ago, 1 month ago, posted 2 months ago etc..) then creating a new thread is not considered as repost.

Validity Extended Deal rule – (Revised on 06-06-2017)

If a coupon/offer validity is extended from the same day its suppose to expire then that thread will be merged with the previous one. But if coupon/offer is not extended within 48Hrs of its expiry then a new thread can be created and it will not be considered as repost.

Eg :- If validity of a coupon is till 15th and offer is extended on the same day or within 2 days i.e till 17th then it will be merged with the old thread, and it will not be considered for fpd. But offer was not extended till 17th and it was again marked live on 18th then it will be considered as fresh post and it can be considered as fpd.

Exception for (Flight, bus and hotels Deal)

If a deal is valid for specific time period. And it comes back with fresh validity.
And if user is able to avail the offer again then that will not be considered as repost. And it will be treated as fresh deal. But if same user who availed the deal last time and is not able to avail it again then it will be considered as extended deal.
And it will not be eligible for fpd (if earlier deal was fpd)

Expired Deal FPD Credit ( 22-07-2017)

Many times deals comes for very less period and by the time we decide to promote them it goes out of stock and its not available. For Such deals earlier we use to give expired fpd credit to Dimers. But from now on we will be following that process. So we will not be giving any expired FPD credit for such deals.

Exception to this rule :- If some deal is extremely good and missed and admin/mod team decides then we may give credit for such deals.

If the two post are posted less than a minute apart, we will just mark the one post later as duplicate, but no warning. But the post has to be within one minute only

i think there must be some parameter to post ebay deals like one can post only if seller has 25+ feedback or 50+ feedback, No bid item , no ebay coupons or there must be one ebay thread like dominos pizza because most of ebay coupons are user specific
Thanks

@rinku – Thanks. Can you create one ebay coupon thread for us and help us maintain it? Post it in coupons/freebies forum and make it sticky (if you have permissions) or else I will do the same..

I sell stuff on ebay for very attractive rates like Water Powered Clock which is really attractive and good item and which comes for Rs, 1123 on sites like 20north etc for just 590 or headphones or the car scratch remover pen which comes is for 499 on other sites for 150. All the deals are genuine and really really good. And I have many many more.

I saw desidime and found it to be really very attractive and extremely useful to get good online deals.

I posted a few of my own deals and a few other members on desidime told me that this is not allowed. I am sorry I did not know this as I am new on desidime. Please advice should I post good deals which are of my own on ebay or not.

Hi since1990 ,
Everyone feels there own deals are good. If posting them will be allowed , desidime will become spam paradise. Let others decide if your deal is good or not. If it’s good , someone might post it here.

Posting own deals is not allowed in desidime. Besides , self promotion brings negative publicity as we see here most of the times.

If you really have a good deal and feel that no one might notice it on ebay , I suggest to send pm to adm with the link of that deal. It’s just my suggestion and not sure if adm will like this idea or not of sending pm to him with deals all the time. If you wouldn’t spam and deal is really good , I see no harm.

Effective immediately,

  • Lottery deals, pay Rs. xx and win a chance to win xx or get your money back etc must be posted in “Freebies & Contests” forum. Any such deals submitted in “Daily Deals” or “Hot Deals – Online” Forum will be immediately deleted.
  • You are encouraged to post only good eBay Deals. If the seller has less than 50 feedback, such listings will be immediately deleted. However, if the seller is being promoted via eBay too, then its fine to post. Use your instincts or PM us for help.
  • Any kind of self-promotion will be immediately deleted and user suspended..

Lets keep forums clean and increase the value of what’s being shared.
