What is FurBuy Classifieds?
The purpose of FurBuy Classifieds is to provide a service for posting and bartering with other users for
goods, services and collaborations.
We use the traditional newspaper style Want Ads and Wanted Ads system, along with a few modern web twists and advances.
So how does it work?
If you're looking to give away, barter or negotiate an item or service you would Post a new Want Ad. If you're looking to find
someone who can provide you with an item or service then you would Post a new Wanted Ad. Either way, clearly explain what you're
looking for, and if capable provide images.
Once posted, your Classified will be visible in the Browse/Listings pages for other users to view. If someone is interested,
they will place an initial offer and from there the two parties can barter until reaching an agreement (and Accepting the Offer)
or an impasse (and Rejecting the Offer).
