Is this a prohibited item or not?

Hello @Bert,

As you have said,

Which means that anyone can get this, technically for free if you own an eligible phone, and that means you are selling a free item/code for money, which is not allowed.

minty codes weren’t a issue months ago when you got them free for buying something from gamestop etc , so whats the difference here?

not everyone wants to go out and buy a phone to get it

Hello @Bert,

I understand that people do not want to buy the phone for it, but it is free since people already have the phone.

Same thing was for Counterattack and everyone got at least one warning, especially when it started. We will be updated soon if item is prohibited or not.

@DarkKnight ?

Hello everyone,

Yes, the Bhangra Boogie Emote is forbidden to sell on the Gameflip marketplace since it is a free promotional offer by OnePlus and only to be redeemed by owners of specific OnePlus devices.

So we are handing out warnings at first, but if we see that this item is still being sold, further measures will be taken.

Also, here is an explanation on the OnePlus website as to who is eligible to redeem the code.

Thanks for the reply DarkKnight
However this reply has really confused me , there was never a issue with Honor Guard or Wonder which was also the same sort of promotion but for huawei phones ,and also glow from samsung phones was never a issue
why has it only just started becoming a issue? it doesn’t make sense

Hello @Bert,

These skins were also forbidden on the Gameflip marketplace. We were also sending out warnings and banning sellers for selling these skins. Various sellers were requesting login information in order to redeem the skins on the buyer’s account.

So do not say that they were never an issue. We were working very hard to try and remove all of the listings for these skins.

Hi! Sorry, not sure how to make a new post so I Will piggy back on here with my question is that’s okay.

I’m trying to buy an iTunes gift card and the seller is asking me for my discord/Facebook/WhatsApp info. I’ve bought before and have never been asked to provide this.

Is this allowed?


Not a problem at all and welcome to the Gameflip forum!

That is not allowed at all, since the are trying to conduct the sale outside of Gameflip.

Could you please provide me the order ID?

God Speed! :trident:

I never got warnings for any of them and sold hundreds in the past. None of them required login info , they were either codes or gifted.
Sold most exclusive skins on here no problem
I’m going to be hesitant about stocking on new exclusives from now on because i don’t know what is allowed and what isn’t allowed here
Pretty unfortunate

In this case, keep in mind that free promotional codes are not allowed to be sold and gifting is also not allowed, since you need to wait a certain time in order to be able to gift the skin to a user.

Also, rules for certain items in the marketplace are changed overtime, if we see there are issues. We will always advise the seller in some way, so they are aware that the item is not allowed to be sold anymore.

Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

There are still people selling Bhangra Boogie Emote on

Like this guy

Hello @disco,

As @DarkKnight said,

If you see a seller listing and selling something that is prohibited, report them and open a ticket with Gameflip Support, providing as much detail as possible.

If they are still doing it, Gameflip will take the necessary actions.


I think it should’nt be

Hi DarkKnight!

Here’s the order ID: 9cb0ea1c-ea0e-4a11-933b-d15b2fb21d0e

I took a ss of the comversation as well if you need it. He canceled the order when I refused to give him my info.

Hey @disco,

Thanks for providing the listing.

I have verified and the user seems to have stopped selling the item, so we are ok now.

Also @BEEEONKAHH, I have verified the user and their account has been suspended for this type of suspicious activity.

In case you see anymore, feel free to report it to us.

God Speed! :trident:


what will happen to those who have sold it on website and many customers have purchased it and redeemed it sucessfully , will they be paid?

Hello @ezfordoordie,

I am not sure what exactly happened with previous scenarios, but I believe that the sellers may have been suspended/banned.

This could be wrong.
