First and foremost welcome 😁

There's a couple main things to keep in mind.

Ask questions if you're a buyer, the more the better.

Inspect any items thoroughly before committing.

A persons profile may give you an idea of how they do business.

If you're a seller ask them if they have questions, provide accurate details in your posts / ads and take well lit images.

Be polite and direct.

Don't ignore anyone if you can help it, you wouldn't want to be ignored so don't do it to others.

Avoid possible confrontation by blocking — don't stress yourself out.

Try to contribute in the forums whenever you're able.


Versus others?

I'd say it's simpler to use than any website.

You can manage ads directly from your phone — pictures / offers / direct messaging

Although there are similar apps, this one has more accurate results for items I've found.

Everything else I've used is also either super slow or lacking in some areas / features


If this is not the information you were expecting please clarify 🙂
