Unlike most social networking sites, you cannot be anonymous on Wzajemniak. The truthfulness of the data allows you to build mutual trust, so we recommend that you complete the information on your profile carefully. Complete and authentic profiles (in terms of information and profile photo), after prior verification, are awarded the right to debit in points and are marked with a special verification symbol.
However, it is not necessary to provide all data in full form. The address of residence can be limited to the city, and the visibility of the phone number to the list of your friends. However, it is necessary to provide an e-mail address and/or telephone number, as well as links to social media (e.g. Facebook) - they are a good identifier and help you get the status of a verified profile faster.
The next step is to post the items and services offered for exchange for points. Their prices can be determined in:
- points (e.g., 50 points),
- PLN (e.g., PLN 50),
- points and PLN (e.g., 20 points + 30 PLN).
1 point is worth PLN 1. Typical exchanges on the Mutual have a value from 50 - 500 points, which is the equivalent of 50 - 500 PLN.
Wzajemniak is based on trust, so we recommend taking care of your friends list. Don't invite or accept invitations from strangers.
If you know the person, give them a recommendation and ask them to give it to you. This will allow you to get verified profile status faster, allowing you to have a larger overdraft limit.
Invite as many of your friends as possible to join Wzajemniak! The more of us, the easier it is to find the items and services we need and exchange ours.
Balance does not indicate wealth or social status. It only presents the balance of one’s transactions with the rest of the users - how much a person "gives" and how much "takes" from the community. It is important to keep it balanced so that it oscillates around zero. Point balances are public, so everyone can judge someone's activity and their balance between "taking" and "giving".
Wzajemniak is a young portal, so it may take a while until there are enough offers for everyone to find whatever they want.
For now, before deciding to perform any service or exchange an item in exchange for someone else's points, accept the fact that you will most likely have to wait some time for something to appear for which you will want to use your points.
It can be helpful to post information about what interests you. Perhaps someone has something you need, but hasn't had time to post an offer, or simply forgot about it. That way, users offering various services you need can reach out to you on their own. You can also post such posts on the Wzajemniak group on Facebook (link to the group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/255289035680034)
Wzajemniak is free by definition, and its creators support it from the funds of the DEMOK.pl foundation, which is based on donations.
There is a chance that in the future we will decide to introduce small fees, e.g., for account verification, or we will propose completely voluntary membership fee programs based on small sums (e.g., 10 PLN per year), thanks to which we could develop the portal faster.
As a foundation, we are grateful for any support. The person who pays for the maintenance of the portal obtains from us the unique status of "user-founder".
