You may have read my post on getting the most out of the forums, but who better to get tips from than one of our own top posters? Hear from another community member like yourself! These great tips come from @Shupat - thanks again for offering up these awesome tips! @Shupat has been in our Online Community since November, and has accumulated 13 badges in that time - including some of the really hard badges to acquire like the 100 replies badge! WIthout further ado, here are some great tips from @Shupat

 

Getting Started In The Forums: Top 3 Tips

  1. Familiarize yourself with the forum guidelines and features:
    Threads, Search, Private Messaging, Notifications, etc.
  1. Interacting with others: 
     If you are responding to someone specifically or want members to respond to you put this @ in front of their username.
  1. Learn your way around:
    Check out all four Forums, Blogs and Announcements:
    Welcome, Pro Tips, Local Connections and Small Business Secrets
    Ask questions, join conversations, handout Kudos, be respectful of other people’s opinions and ideas. It’s okay to disagree and have different opinions but present your case tactfully.

Top 3 Tips For Using The Forums
Use the forums to learn, build relationships, build the community and share.

  1. Learn:
    You will learn a ton of information from the forums. This information is vital to your success and safety. There is so much to learn from building and maintaining your offers page to planning your first meet up and beyond. You will find the answers here in the forums.
  2. Community:
    A strong sense of community and friendship grows when you realize that you are not alone. Shared interest brings us together. Our highs and our lows. That commonality helps in building relationships and connections.
  3. Share:
    Interact with each other using positive energy. Participate and contribute to the discussions. Receive help and give help!

Hello 

I just started selling this month. My question is how do you handle buyers that waste Your time saying they will buy and pick up item , then You don't hear from them. Another buyer is interested but you have appointment with someone who flakes out. This is very frustrating and makes me look bad.

@Shupat can I change my login, not my profile but login name to what was recommended when I first signed up a couple days ago? I don't really want @sky5. I was not clear at the time how it would be used. I would like to change it to @sky5. Would I have to recreate my account or would offer up change it at my request?

Beware of the scammers...they are getting free jewelery from Wish app and trying to sell on herw for hundreds of dollars..always meet at a jewelery shop and have it checked out before you buy any jewelery from here for high prices..costume jewelery for a couple bucks is different but you can go to my page and see some of the comparisons...they are ripping people off..dont let it be YOU..
