How to get and give away free stuff in the Container


Search for free items in the container

Choose the preferred area under the tab "Search area" (see Image 1). Then select the tab "Ads" and the items in the container closest to the selected area are shown (see Image 2). If you have the free version, ads that was entered more than 24 hours ago will be shown to you. If you have the "Premium" version you will see all the ads that was entered more than 10 minutes ago. Scroll through the ads like it´s a news paper and see if you find anything of interest (see Image 3). If you are searching for something specific, you can enter a search text in the search field (see Image 4). When you find what you are looking fore, click on the image to see details about the selected item (see Image 5).

Contact the owner of an item

To contact the owner, click on "Chat" and the message-window will appear. To start on a new message, click on the button on the top right corner (see Image 6) and start typing your message. Finish by clicking the "Send" button. If it´s your first time you will be asked for your name, email, zipcode and country and an email will be sent to you that you have to confirm before your message will be shown to the reciever. When the owner replies you will be noticed by a "badge" on the selected ad (see Image 7). All the ads you have either written messages to or recieved messages from will be shown under "History". Then it is up to the two of you to decide the way to change owner of the item.
