This is certainly an area full of information. This section, in fact, is divided in three different sectors: chat, activities and notifications. Let's see in detail: you'll always have all your chats under control, all the messages you have had with all the xtribers over time; but you will also have a complete view of your activities, the set of all negotiations with others, the purchase, barter and rental proposals; and finally you will see all the notifications you received over time, warnings that gradually remind you of expiring ads, your favorites, renewals, credits and much more.
Your profile is your business card. It’s important to be as detailed and precise as possible in your description because it increases the chances of being contacted. And remember that a beautiful profile image is worth a thousand words. From this section you will be able to access and modify your data, update your status and much more.
This is the section that describes each ad in all its parts. Here you will find all the information needed to proceed with the negotiation: the detailed description of the product or service, the price, if there is a discount, the possibility of renting, bartering, the distance of the ad from the point where you are located, various images that best describe it, the number of views and the number of possible buyers who are negotiating. Also, in this area it is possible to add the advertisement to the favorites, so it is kept under control and gives access to the detailed description of the seller for added security. Let's check it out in detail.
CHAT WITH THE SELLER:: within this area it is possible to communicate in real time with the seller to carry on the negotiation, to agree to a barter or a rental, to set the price and in general all that information necessary for the exchange and eventually on the place where meet to effectively complete the purchase of the product or service.

MAKE YOUR OFFER:: here you will have the opportunity to make your offer. The asking price is set by the seller and it's up to you to be a good negotiator and be able to get a discount
BUY NOW: in this case the seller has set a specific price for the product on his ad, all you have to do is confirm and wait for his reply. However, just to be clear, either "Make an offer" or the "Buy now" will be available: it is not possible to have both options at the same time, it is up to the seller to choose.
REQUEST A RENTAL: if this feature is on you can request a rental: just specify the start and end dates and then propose a suitable price for that timeframe.

Take a picture directly from your smartphone, even an image from your "gallery" will be fine. Choose the title and add a catchy description. Set the price and other terms, save everything and you are already online. Now let's see the part concerning the selection of the position of the ad.
Our application will help you select a fixed location on the map where to place your ad; for example, the address of your store, or a place where you will want to meet your potential customers. When your position is fixed, you will be visible to all possible buyers on Xtribe.
If you are creating an ad related to a consulting service for example, maybe you will want that ad to follow you so that users around you know that you are close to them; or perhaps you want to sell an item that you always carry with you? Then don't locate it in a specific address; select this option and the ad will move with you, ensuring maximum visibility with the users closest to you. This feature is not available for Xtribe Store users for obvious reasons. Now let's see the other two options featured on Xtribe: rental and barter.
