    PriusChat is a very useful tool to market your product to the thousands of visitors we have every day. However, lately the idea of "free advertising" on PriusChat has turned into an abuse of the site and a waste of bandwidth for our users.

    If you are a manufacturer or vendor of a Prius or hybrid-related product, instead of traditional site advertising we would like to add your product to the PriusChat Shop! Vendors and manufacturers are NOT allowed to post their goods for sale unless those goods are available through the PriusChat Shop.

    This policy is not in effect obviously for privately-owned items that can be sold or traded in the Private Sales Forum.

    If you have any questions or are ready to enter into a partnership with PriusChat, please email me at [email protected] for further information.

    We look forward to selling your product to the thousands of people who come to PriusChat every day!

    Thank you for using PriusChat!

    Dave -

    That's a great question and I'm glad it got asked. The types of Group Buys you're talking about will most likely be exempted from the charge.

    I and the rest of the PC team will analyze those instances on a case by case basis.

    If you have anymore questions, please let me know.

    Er... hi.

    I'm a graduate student and very happy Prius owner. I'm using a well-known online print-your-own-designs merchant to help me sell T-shirts, bumper stickers, and other gifts (I get about 1-2 bucks per sale, but at least it helps pay for my books). Usually I specialize in ancient art, but after answering the same question for the umpteenth time at a gas station, it suddenly occurred to me that "Yes, I love my hybrid!" with a cute graphic would probably sell better than all my other stuff combined. :rolleyes:

    $20 seems like a reasonable price to try and generate a little marketing for my product and help out your site. But I tried clicking on your "sponsors" link above and "online payment page," and neither one works!

    So is the link broken, or am I being dense, or is the sponsorship program down right now? :unsure:

    Danny, I don't know if you got our email, but we really want to become sponsors. We want to educate and help the prius community with their insurance needs since hybrid owners usually pay lot. If you could please contact us it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
