Guidelines and tips for requesting
It's a beautiful community out there! We hope you enjoy Olio in your local area. To make sure you have positive interactions, simply follow these easy guidelines:
👀 Read the listing carefully
Look out for information and instructions in the listing and collection notes, to make sure your expectations are correct to avoid unnecessary conversations.
📅 Be specific with a date/time
Remember to give a date and time for picking up the listing. Don't just stop at the automated ''Hi''! I.e. “I can come on Monday at 5 pm.''
💬 Be polite and friendly
Be friendly! We love it when Olioers form bonds. A please and thank you go a long way so everyone feels good.
⏰ Always show up on time
If for some reason you cannot make the pick-up, or are running late (even by 5 minutes) please message the other user and explain as no one wants to be left waiting.
🌟 Rate the other Olioers
Remember, you can rate all Olioers you’ve communicated with. Ratings really help to build trust and encourage good behaviour in our Olio community.
