Find A Match

When you have successfully posted an item or offer, you can search for potential matches by clicking the ' “FIND A MATCH” ' button. This will show you a list of items that meet the criteria for a successful swap or purchase based on your offer settings.

If you are viewing your own posts, you will notice that the 'Ask'  and 'Make offer'  buttons disabled. This is because these buttons are only intended for use by other users who are interested in making offers on your items. However, when other users view your posts, they will see the 'Ask' and 'Make offer' buttons as active and available for use. This allows for easy and efficient negotiation and deal-making on our platform.
