What is Dopplle?
Dopplle connects users with each other so their items can be swapped and not thrown away. All items on Dopplle Pilot Launch are offered for free and no actual exchange will take place. Any attempt to sell items should be immediately reported.
How can I use Dopplle?
After downloading the app you will need to create an account. Once the account is created you will be able to browse other users’ items, list your own items, request items and send messages.
Do I have to give and take to use Dopplle?
No. Many people will do both, but some people will only add and others will only request. Whatever takes your fancy!
Add New Item
This is where you add your items to list, you must add at least one photograph and can also add further information, including different categories to choose from.
Until you select ‘This Item is Available’ your item will be in Draft where you can continue to edit it without anyone else seeing it.
Look through all the different items people have listed. You can search using the text entry at the top and you can also set filters in the top right corner to really narrow the search down for categories or location.
Items will display a thumbnail photo with its’ name underneath. If you see something you like, click a thumbnail and you will be taken to the item info where you can see further information about the item, message the owner and request the item.
Any items you have Liked, items that have been requested from you, items that have been requested by you and all completed trades will show in this section. Each item will display a thumbnail with the item name, credits value, the status of the trade, who the trade is taking place with and how it is arranged to be collected.
Any items that you have added will be accessible from this section. There are 3 tabs Draft, Active and Items in Trade.
