Finda is a community where trust matters. As you buy, sell, and trade your profile will help increase your credibility with other members. Whether you’re the buyer or the seller, you’ll be able to view profiles, see their reviews, and get to know each other before you make a deal. When you click on a member’s profile, you can see up to 6 pieces of information: Their chosen name Their average response time How long they’ve been posting ads on finda Whether or not they have any active ads The reviews they’ve received from other members
When a buyer sends you a message, you’ll be able to view their profile (if they have previous ratings). To see their profile: Go into your Message section. Select the message from the buyer whose profile you want to view. Click on the buyer’s name at the top of their message. If you don't see any stars or can't click on their name, they don't have any ratings yet.
Whether you’re a buyer, or wanting to view your own seller profile, you can do so by following the steps below: Open the seller’s ad. On the right side, you’ll see the seller information section. From here you can see the most important parts of their profile. For more details, click View Profile. Use the tabs to toggle back and forth from Live ads to Reviews.
A user’s profile will be mostly blank if they’re new to finda or don’t message other buyers or sellers very often. With each response sent, their averages will be determined. Once they’ve hit the enough replies to create a general average, it will appear on their profile.
