Reply to posts

You now have more options when it comes to replying to members' posts

On the Freecycle.org website

  • Go to Dashboard or My Friends to find posts that interest you
  • Click the Reply button to the right of the post
  • Type your message in the box
  • Click the Send button
  • The poster will receive a message in their My Messages and the two of you can send messages back and forth until you come to an agreement on the item in the post. If you are set up to receive emails for post replies, you will also receive an email for each message.

  • Click on My Messages or the Messages icon, then on Replies to others' posts to see the list of posts you have replied to
  • Click the arrow to the right of each post to see and respond to the messages between you and the person who made the post

You can also reply from a post email
