HOW DOES TRADING WORK?
When you join you will get your membership number & password to access the web-based system, (change your password as soon as possible) you can then access offers and requests from other members, then all you have to do is contact another member to trade the services or goods required. Once you agree to the cost in our LETS currency, (called Brass Razoos), once the transaction is completed, the seller enters the transaction into the web-based system, and their account is credited and the buyers debited, you will then be notified by email of the transaction as confirmation.
HOW MUCH DO I CHARGE?
For services we recommend a rate from 25 - 75 Brass Razoo's per hour, but rates can vary, so the two members trading must agree on a rate first. You may pass on the actual cost of any materials that you may have to purchase onto the member you are providing the service to, the cost of the trade should be agreed to in advance. For new and second hand goods, you may charge a cash portion in conjunction with the Brass Razoo's, but the cash component can-not be greater than the Brass Razoo component, in other words, 50/50 being, 50% Brass Razoo's & 50% Cash, or 60/40 being 60% Brass Razoo's & 40% cash etc, just as long as the cash component is no greater than the Brass Razoo component,
Trade days will be planned once we are up and growing, They are like any of the markets you see around, except that NO CASH is used. Trade Days are for Brass Razoo's only. Once trade days start members are strongly encouraged to attend and have a stall there or if unable to have a stall attend and browse around the other members stalls, as this will be a good time for members to get to know each other.
DON'T HAVE A COMPUTER OR INTERNET ACCESS?
Not to worry, you can still become a member, as you will be posted or emailed a directory of members and their services or goods they wish to trade, you may have access to a library to be able to use their computers to access your account, just make sure you sign out for your own security, if you are unable to do that, then we can do your trades etc for you with our skilled admin members.
