Using Geniebro to give away things

Click the headings below for help on giving away stuff on GenieBro.

Can I charge someone for my item?

No. This platform is to exchange or give away.

Can I list animals on GenieBro?

Whilst we originally welcomed people to use GenieBro to help find loving homes for pets that needed them, after considering our member’s comments and consultation with relative organisations, we have come to realise that this was not the best approach regarding responsible pet ownership. Accordingly we have taken the decision to not allow animals of any kind to be listed on GenieBro.

If you have an animal that you can no longer care for or rehouse, please surrender it to an animal shelter to ensure they are looked after and have the best chance of finding a new home.

How do I relist an item?

An email notification will be sent to you with instructions to re-list your items close to their expiry.

To re-list an item:

- Login to My Account

- Go to the I’m Giving tab.

- Select re-list from the Action column.

Please note: When listing baby items such as car seats, please make sure they comply with Safety Standards and are no more than 10 years old.

Listings advertising online stores, websites, services, use of skill and personal time are also not allowed. These listings will be removed.

Does the first person to request my item automatically get it?

No, on GenieBro many people can request an item and you get to choose who the recipient will be.

Generally, we ask listers to keep their received item requests on file until collection has been made, just in case the first transaction falls through – thus enabling the item to be offered again to interested parties.

What happens if someone doesn’t collect an item?

Unfortunately there may be occasions when you don’t hear back from somebody who has requested an item or they fail to collect it.

If a member is unable to collect the item, you are able to Withdraw the offer in the Stuff I’m Giving Away section located under My Activity.

A message will be sent to the member who requested the item notifying them that the offer has been withdrawn.

You will then be able to offer the item to another member.
