FAQ

About Us

Shareitt is a unique social e-commerce platform that lets you exchange second hand used or new items easily and have fun at the same time. At Shareitt we want you to be able to reuse, exchange and benefit from those items that you're no longer using, earn Shareitt points and receive the items you want from other users.

If you're here, you've already succeeded in overcoming the first obstacle – downloading the app. After a short (optional) registration process, you may begin looking for items that interest you in the different categories. At the same time, you may upload items for exchange, receive items from other users (if you've registered, we've already awarded you with a welcome gift of Shareitt points), make wishes come true and more. Once you start, it's easy to use.

How do I start using Shareitt?

By clicking + on the bottom toolbar, you'll reach the Upload Items Page where you can find instructions for uploading an item as well as all the information you should provide about the item. It's important to describe your item in as much detail as possible, put it in the right category, note its real world monetary value and tell users how they can collect the item. Don't forget to click the Upload Item button when you're done.

Why should I use Shareitt?

 

What are Shareitt Points?

Shareitt points are the engine that drives our platform. Like an actual currency, they are used to price the value of the items you upload for exchange or receive from other users. It's pretty simple, use the points as you would use shekels. Just remember that Shareitt points aren't real money.

In order to get Shareitt points, you just need to use the app – that is, exchange and receive items. There are two main ways to earn points: First, from other users – the more good quality items you upload and exchange, the more points you can accumulate. And second, from Shareitt – look for the Gift icon at the top of the screen and check out how many gifts you'll receive.

How can I earn Shareitt Points?

Can you tell me more about Shareitt Gifts?

The gifts we give you are based on your platform usage. We encourage you to upload as many quality items as you can, exchange and receive items, share the app with friends and grant wishes. We're sure you'll be happy with each gift you get!

Do I have to upload a picture of my item?

Yes. We recommend taking the best picture or pictures you can. The better and more authentic the picture, the better your chance of selling the item. Take the picture yourself rather than using one from the internet. Make sure the lighting is good and the background is plain – a white background is best – and take pictures from different angles. For more picture taking recommendations, please see Home Page.

After you've successfully uploaded an item, other users can ask to buy it. You'll get a message with a request to receive the item which you can approve by clicking on the Approve button in the chat with the buyer.

Once you've received the item, click the Confirm Item Receipt button in the chat or under Receiving Items on your User Page.

I like a certain item, so I clicked the Heart icon. What does this mean?

What's a Wish?

In the same way you upload an item to offer for exchange, you can also upload a wish for an item you're interested in receiving. Someone may see your wish on the Wish Page and try to grant it. You can reach the Wishes Page from Home Page.

How does delivery or collection of items work?

Shareitt users transfer items to one another in a number of ways:
The first is pick-up - simple and convenient, coordinated between the two users.
Another option is conventional delivery services such as post and parcel lockers (like Boxit) - at an actual shekel cost, also coordinated between the two users.
A third option is through other Shareitt users! These users act as person to person couriers and help deliver items in return for Shareitt points. For more information on this option, please see FAQs on Shareitt Person to Person Couriers.

I bought an item, how do I know if delivery will cost me extra points?

Delivery options for each item are listed on the Item Page – either using Shareitt points or by pick-up, at no extra cost.

How many points does a Shareitt person to person courier cost?

There are two types of person to person couriers:
Shareitt storage couriers store items for you until you pick them up for 5 Shareitt points;
Shareitt transport couriers transport items at a cost of 10 Shareitt points per 'delivery stage'.

The total delivery cost for an item to a certain destination will appear on the Item Page map. For example, if the delivery of an item to an address close to you involves one storage courier and 2 transport couriers, the total cost will be 25 Shareitt points.

What is Shareitt person to person delivery?

Shareitt person to person delivery is a community method to move items from one user to another. Certain users act as person to person couriers and move items from the user offering the item to various collection points in exchange for points.

How does it work?

Once the item has been exchanged and the collection point has been selected by the user receiving the item, the user offering the item sends the item and the receiver's details to the person to person courier. The courier then sends the receiver a link to pay for delivery and coordinates the tranfser of the item to them. If more than one courier is required to transfer the item (i.e. more than one delivery stage), the receiver will get a link from each person to person courier involved.

Where can I find the collection points?

On the Item Page, you can open the map and see all the collection points - pick up and/or by person to person couriers (at an additional points cost). Once you've found a suitable collection point, coordinate delivery with the user offering the item.

What's the cost in Shareitt points?

How do I transfer Shareitt points for person to person delivery?
