The Treasures Auctions Network websites have sold over 1.5 Million items online since forming in 2004. The success has been largely due to our Verified Sellers Program and the high standard of stock that our sellers bring to the network.
Our customers know and trust that we will approve only the best sellers to give them the best products and a great buying experience. We take great pride in hand picking and constantly checking the standard of products that are being offered by our sellers.
To be eligible to become a Verified Seller on The Treasures Auctions Network you must -
Have a passion and knowledge of the Gemstone / Opal / Jewelry Trade Industry
Be able to offer our customers competitive prices.
Provide business and personal references to prove your an established business
Offer high business standards in every transaction.
If you are a seller on other platforms, you just provide the username which you use to sell with so we can asses your business practices.
It is a bonus if you are a member of a trade or jewelry organization, but it is not required.
Our sellers are managed by our Sheriff Program across our network. Each website site has its own Sheriff, Opal Sheriff, Gemstone Sheriff, and Fashion Sheriff Etc. It is the Sheriffs that will guide our potential sellers through the Verified Seller application process and provide ongoing support to our sellers.
Sellers wishing to join a website within The Treasures Auctions Network have to first register as a buyer using their intended Store Name. (i.e. MarksGems).
IP address checked
Trade References checked
Photo Identification checked
Phone numbers checked including face to face verification Skype phone call if applicable
Sellers will be notified if they have been approved or disapproved at the discretion of the Sheriff and management. No further communication will be entered into, this decision is final
At the discretion of the Sheriff and management, approved new sellers may be required to pay a bond of $200 (via PayPal only) which is payable before you can sell. This bond will be held by Treasures Auctions, interest free for a period of 12 months.
Once a seller is accepted into the Verified Sellers Program they will be in a probation period which will run for a minimum of 3 months
During the probation period verified sellers will be on the Starter Plan which will allow them to list 50 items at a time
During the probation period the Sheriff will conduct an audit on each listing which will be visible to buyers for the life of the listing
The probation period will cease at the end of 3 months of active selling with the following conditions met:
Feedback above 95%
20 or more positive Feedback
Minimal listing errors and discrepancies
Minimal issues between seller and their buyers
Evidence that a high level of professionalism has been upheld at all times.
At the end of the standard 3 month probation period we will reflect and communicate with you on your overall professional performance. At our discretion we may:
End your probation period and allow you to apply for the next selling plan which will allow more items to be listed
Extend your probation period if we feel you are not ready to move to the next selling plan
Cancel your selling account if we feel you are not up to the required standard of the Verified Sellers Program.
The Verified Seller Program is managed by the Sheriff Program across each of our websites. This program is operated by a qualified Gemologist and panel of advisers from within the Gemstone, Opal and Jewelry industries. The position of Sheriff is a voluntary position and is not paid or reimbursed in any way by The Treasures Auctions Network.
The Sheriff has two main goals:
To support and guide sellers
To answer questions and guide potential buyers via the Audit system.
If you have any queries or questions regarding listing stock or gemological questions never hesitate to contact the Sheriff, they are always there to help.
To uphold the high standards of our Verified Seller Program we operate a “3 Strikes and you’re out” policy. Failure to meet any of the rules below or abide by the Terms and conditions may result in the Verified Seller getting a strike against their seller account. These strikes are at the discretion of the Sheriff and Management. They are non-negotiable.
Once a seller has accumulated 3 strikes the Verified Seller will be permanently suspended and their store/s closed immediately
A strike automatically downgrades the Verified Seller for 30 days which means they cannot list any new items during that period
Any breach of unprofessional business practice will result in a strike
Verified Sellers may be suspended permanently at the discretion of management at any time without notice
Any communication with Management, Administration or a Sheriff must be responded to and actioned within 12 hours. Failure to do so may result in a strike
At the Sheriff’s discretion if an issue is found with a listing they will suspend the listing and notified the seller about the issues to discuss further. If the issue is minor the Sheriff will write recommended changes within the Audit and the seller is expected to amend the listing and click the ‘Re-request Audit’ Button so that the Sheriff can re Audit the listing. If action to amend the listing is not undertaken by the seller the listing will be suspended within 12 hours
If a Verified Seller’s feedback drops to or below 95% the Sheriff will issue a strike and your store/s will be downgraded to The Starter Plan (20 Items only) until your feedback raises to 96% or above
The Sheriff may request any item from any Verified Seller to be posted into head office for independent certification at any time. Refusal or delay to comply with this request will result in immediate and permanent suspension. Shipping to the Sheriff will be at the Verified Sellers expense and the Sheriff will return the item in the same method at no further expense to the seller.

如果發現列表存在問題，治安官將酌情決定暫停該列表並通知賣家有關問題以進一步討論。如果問題很小，治安官將在審核中寫下建議的更改，並且賣家應修改列表並單擊“重新請求審核”按鈕，以便治安官可以重新審核列表。如果賣家未採取修改列表的行動，則列表將在 12 小時內暫停
如果經過驗證的賣家的反饋降至 95% 或以下，治安官將發出罷工，您的商店將被降級為入門計劃（僅限 20 件商品），直到您的反饋升至 96% 或以上
