How do I create a Barter Exchange post?
You can create a post from a few different places. Just look for the "Create Post" button. It's located on the Home Page, on each category landing page or create a listing from the "Pay It Forward Post Activity Center" under "My Account" and then click on "New Generic Listing". Add pictures and descriptions of yourself and what you're looking for or can provide. Make sure to choose the category you would like to list under. If it's a barter choose "Barter Exchange". If it's a Pay it Forward choose the category that best fits your request. Make sure to fill out your profile, letting other members know who you are. The more someone knows about you the more likely they'll want to connect with you.
