SUSHI DOGS


Good day lil Sushi Rolls! :3

Since the introduction to the appraisal rule for merchandise trading we’ve come to understand a few things regarding merchandise trading and how we have still not been able to achieve that fair balance that we as a community were hoping for. After taking in all of your feedback into consideration we’ve come to the decision to make a few amendments to our rules that will hopefully be for the better:



1. If you want to trade your Sushi Dog in exchange for merchandise or the purchase of another adopt, you must note the group first.
When noting the group you must tell us the following:
     a. How you obtained the Sushi Dog. If you bought them how much did you pay?(Provide proof of payment)
     b. A link to the masterlist entry  (If your Sushi Dog is not on the visual masterlist over at SooshDatabase you must register your Sushi Dog for uploading before it can be approved for merch. To do so please go here.)
     c. How much art you bought for the Sushi Dog, and for how much (This does not include personal art, gift art or art trades!)

2. A Sushi Dog received through zero monetary means will no longer have a base value of $0 unless they were originally obtained from a contest, raffle or free custom trade. Originally this was put into place to prevent others from profiting off of Sushi Dogs and to create a fairness within the market. It was after many appraisals did we realize we’ve made it more difficult for those who legitimately needed specific merchandise or those seeking to retire from the closed species community to trade their Sushi Dogs.

       2a. A Witchpaws Sushi Dog will retain half their original monetary value in the event the appraisal value is less than their original value. To make this easier to understand consider this scenario: You receive a Sushi Dog through trade from a user that purchased it as a custom from Witchpaws in the amount of $450. Your tablet then combusts into flames and you have no means of acquiring a new one. O_O;;; Your only option is to have your Sushi Dog appraised for merchandise. You’ve paid for $15 in commissions of this Sushi Dog but nothing more. Originally the appraisal rule was you only get what you invest into your Sushi Dog but an evaluation of $15 is…ridiculous (and we whole heartedly agree). With this new rule into effect your Sushi Dog will now be appraised at half their original value of $225 since this exceeds what you’ve invested into your Sushi Dog. This still allows for your Sushi Dog to be traded for merchandise in an amount that is deemed fair and applicable to everyone who receives this Sushi Dog after you.

       2b. A MYO Sushi Dog will retain half their original monetary value in the event the appraisal value is less than their original value. This is essentially the same situation as above but unfortunately this may not work out for every MYO Sushi Dog. The prices of MYO slots over the years have varied, many of which changing hands to new owners three or four times making it very difficult to find the original owner of the slot. If a MYO Sushi Dog owner is unable to find the original owner’s proof of purchase they will be unable to benefit from this rule in the event they are appraised for less. This is why we strongly suggest saving approvals, proofs of slot purchases, etc. even after they are uploaded to the master list.

3. You are required to show a screenshot of the approved appraisal price by a moderator in your trading/selling journal. We’ve already mentioned this before but this is to help members of the community feel more comfortable when going through with these trades. This also provides a means of protection to community members from scammers.

4. Shipping costs, custom fees, paypal fees, etc. are included in the total of appraisal value unless both trading parties agree to taking on the expense. We’ve had many members ask about this so we’ve decided to make a rule about it. In the event you are trading for physical goods the general rule of thumb is that any additional fees are paid at the expense of person receiving the Sushi Dog and is therefore budgeted to not exceed appraisal value. Unless the person receiving the Sushi Dog is comfortable paying whatever fees there may be outside of the appraisal value it is being enforced you remain within the appraisal value. You are not allowed to ask for an additional amount on top of what has already been appraised. There are plenty of sites that offer free international shipping, etc. after spending a certain amount so we strongly urge you to explore your options.

5. Sushi Dogs are now allowed to be traded for eGift Cards. This has been a rule under heavy debate for a while but as we’ve come to notice international merchandise trading is very difficult (especially through Amazon, Ebay, etc.). To diminish the borders we’ve decided that eGift Cards can be exchanged during a Sushi Dog trade. This will also relieve some of the stress of factoring in shipping costs, custom fees, etc. as addressed in the above rule. Remember, you have to have your Sushi Dog appraised before asking for eGift Cards!

Thank you for helping us smooth out our merchandise trading rules little Sushi Rolls! ^w^ We always love to hear your feedback so let us know how you feel about the amendments. We will gladly answer any questions or concerns you may regarding these new rules too.

sorry to be one of those people to ask, but if you got a witchpaws made sushi dog and you didn't buy anything or bought it, only got in trade would it still be able to be appraised? because i did trade it for a witchpaws sushi dog I bought for 50$, I just traded that WP sushi dog I bought for a different sushi dog. also, what if you don't know if this certain wp sushi dog was bought/customed ect?

All Sushi Dogs (except DTAs) are able to be appraised, regardless of how you got them! We have a log of most designs by Jesss and most guest artist sales so that information is usually easy for us to dig up!

aH apologies if this has already been answered before, or if I just missed this being mentioned somewhere, but would a sushi dog be able to be traded in return for someone else buying another oc for it? So basically trading for merchandise but replacing merchandise with another character
And just to make sure I understand, if I obtained a witchpaws sushi dog in a trade and haven’t bought it new art, would I still be able to get it appraised?

A merch trade can include trading for other characters someone jas bought you, yes! It can include anything that doesn't involve you receiving the payment yourself!

All Sushi Dogs (except raffles and DTA designs) have a base value for merchandise, so even if no money is spent you can still get them appraised. So yes, a WP Sushi Dog can be appraised no matter if you get extra art for it or not!

I hope this helps explain it a little better!

I'm sorry, you probably get this question a lot, but after my last (rather negative) experience with this group, I would like to be 100% sure.

If I receive a Sushidog of $0 monitary value, then spend XX amount of money on it through commissions of it, I am allowed to trade it for merch of equal value if I decide to retire from the community again someday (with proper proof of purchase for commissions). Correct?

Rannarbananar Featured By Owner Edited May 28, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
There's a few factors, but essentially yes you can! With the correct proof, what you put into a Sushi Dog can be claimed back in some way!

So, let's say I was traded a MYO pre-made Sushi Dog that was made before Chital took control of the species. It was made with an uncommon slot, that was $120 at first purchase. Because I only traded for it, the value is halved, and I can only accept merch payments, whether they be gift cards, a purchaser paying for something for you, etc. Anything I commission in that time can also be added to the appraisal with proof (commission journals with proof of the image, or PayPal receipts stating what they are for). 

So, my then $60 Sushi Dog could go up as much as I have spent on it!

GA or Official sale Sushi Dogs have differing values, so their trade price is individual to each design! The only Sushi Dogs that have 0 value to begin with will be ones obtained through Raffles or DTAs.  

I hope that explains it a little better for you!

I've read this over a few times, but I still don't quite get it, so I wanted to ask. I have an official guest design. The person I got it from said they paid 300 for it. I traded another official soosh to them for it. I am able to sell this soosh?

Hello!  Thanks for contacting us with your question.

As you traded to get the one you now own, you will only ever be able to trade for merch, unless it is a Sushi Dog that has no value.  How much, will depend on numerous factors.  If you would like to have your Sushi Dog appraised, please send the group a note with all proof of purchase (art) and trade proof and we would be happy to help you out! :)

I apologize for the mass of questions.

So what if I got a sushidog from someone for $75 worth in merch, in which I paid $75 out of my pocket and not by any other means, and have proof of purchasing $75 worth in merch, I can only sell the soosh for half of what I paid for it? Or could I sell it for the $75 if appraised?

Also what does it mean 'purchase for another adopt'? Wouldn't that be called trading? Do you need appraisal for all trades for characters then? Or is there some other meaning that I am not aware of.

Would there be any need for appraisal if I bought the myo slot and was selling and/or trading them for the same amount I purchased them for?

Sorry for all this I'm just a bit confused and I want to trade/sell a soosh of mine without getting into any trouble.

Alright I'll answer your questions in order:

"Can only sell the soosh for half of what I paid for it? Or could I sell it for the $75 if appraised?"

No, if you purchased $75 worth of merchandise and can provide the proof for it, your Sushi Dog would have an appraisal value of $75. The half value is given in the instance no proof can be provided for the amount you spent OR if you did not spend anything.

"Also what does it mean 'purchase for another adopt'? Wouldn't that be called trading?"

If you spend any USD for a Sushi Dog it requires a proof of appraisal. So, someone wants to trade for an Auto-buy voucher (specifically paying the AB cost of an adopt currently up for auction) in exchange for their Sushi Dog, they would need to get their Sushi Dog appraised first.

Would there be any need for appraisal if I bought the myo slot and was selling and/or trading them for the same amount I purchased them for?

Yes! Whenever you are looking to sell your Sushi Dog or trade them for merchandise you need to get them appraised. This is to prevent scamming from occurring in the community.

So for #2, Example, I have a soosh that the previous owner payed $400 for from witchpaws, Then that means if I were to get them appraised and it's less then what half the $400 is, it would automatically be half the original price? In this case $200?

I've read though all this, but I don't think I'm getting it. I feel kinda stupid, but I thought I'd better just ask for clarification:
I have a soosh that I traded for. It's an official guest design. Am I allowed to sell it for money or merch? And if so, how do I find out how much I can ask for her?
This is the soosh: Bride Of Frankenstein Cocktail

Thanks for your time!

This Soosh was given away for free by the group and therefore would not be eligible for merchandise/sale appraisal. :3

Quick question. So I bought a SushiDog  for $75 and the person used the money for merchandise for a trade.
On the master-list it says they traded the SushiDog to me, however it was for money.

Would I be able to sell them or only trade them?

If you can provide proof you bought it for 75$ and it fell within resell rules (there was an appraisal, wasn't a sold MYO before the rule changed) then we can look at USD allowed.  If you bought the merch for them, it would be for merch only with proper appraisals.

This is the Sushi I got. Milk and Cookies
He was appraised for $75 merch wise.
I think you where the one to have appraised him too.

I didn't buy the merch, However I gave the $75 for the person so they could get the merch.

Okay so in this case it was still buying an item for merch (I thought you meant you gave the money to Captyns directly). 

In this case, you could only ask for merch and would need to note the group for official appraisal with these details.

Alright. And one last question.


Are you able to trade them for other cs then or just strictly merch?
I just want to make sure I have everything before I go and do something.
No need to upset any of the mods. =)

You can trade for CS and designs but if someone has to buy a design to trade it to you that can only be for the amount in merch you are approved for.

If I bought someone a character for their soosh, would it have to be for a certain amount?? 
For example, if a soosh was worth 30$ and someone bought them a $50 adopt to trade in return for the soosh, would that be allowed?? Or would it have to be the same price or less?

Hello!  Thanks for asking this question~

The only amount you can offer for a character voucher is the amount that the sushi do is appraised for.  For example if the Sushi Dog was appraised for 30$ in merch or USD, then the only amount you can offer for that sushi dog is 30$ in merch or USD.  Buying an adopt worth 50$ would raise the worth over the appraisal amount and would not be allowed. :)

I'm so sorry for asking. But I obtained my myo SushiDog through a multi trade.
I bought someone a cccat for 100USD and they gave me their MYO SushiDog.
Am I not allowed to appraise it for 100USD because I didn't actually buy it? I mean I did spend 100USD for it. But I just want to understand correctly.
I can send screenshots of the notes if necessary.

We would have to see if the person got the sushi dog appraised for 100$ in merch originally.  If they did and you can show proof we may be able to appraise it for that amount.  If they did not get it appraised first then we would need to discuss and see the Sushi Dog in question as it should never have been sold for merch.  Can you note us the details?

I feel dumb for askig, but I'm a little confused about the appraisal value stuff in 1a and 1b.. Idk if it's something I learned and forgot in school or haven't learned yet, so I can't quite grasp it yet (I'm in middle school so I'm not sure whether you like learn it in high school or something)
For 1a, would it be sold for half of what it was bought for if less than half of its original value was purchased in commisions? Sorry!
Or would it be like if you bought $15 worth of art, that's what it would be sold for, but since that's not at all enough due to the original purchase price, it becomes half the original amount?

For 1b, if it were say a soosh bought for $75, and $5 worth of art was purchased, would it sell for $37.50?

You actually understand it quite perfectly! As you said in the bottom half if you spent less on your Soosh whether Witchpaws or MYO you claim half their original value. This still must be approved by a mod though.

I feel kinda dumb for not understanding, but can I just get an example for 1b? I don't think I'm planning on selling my soosh anytime soon, but I'd like to know in case I decide to eventually.

Example: I bought a common slot for $75, and haven't spent any on art commissions of them. I've only received art through art trades, gifts, contests, and from art drawn by myself. Would the merch amount be $75, or $37.50? (or something else I don't understand?)

Thank you in advance, and sorry for not understanding asdfghj

Because you are the original owner of the Sushi Dog you are able to have your Soosh appraised for the full $75. If you traded for this Soosh to obtain it (being the second owner) you would only be able to claim half if you haven't put any investment into the Soosh besides your own art.

Hopefully this helps!
