Private Barter Groups in HaveNeed: A Quick Guide

Creating and Joining: HaveNeed’s private groups allow members to trade and donate goods and services exclusively within the group, separate from the general network. Members can join via an invite code, either during the initial setup:

Invite Code Input Screen_iphone13promaxgraphite_portrait.png

Or later via the Profile Detail screen which is accessible via the hamburger icon at the top left of any screen:

Posting Items: Users can post items either to a private group or the general network. Items posted to a private group are only visible and searchable by group members and are matched in Barter Loops only within that group.

Viewing and Filtering: Users can filter the home feed to view items from specific private groups. Barter Loop options will only include items from the private group where the item was posted.

For items posted to private groups, Barter Loop options presented in the Haves+Needs (h|n) section of the app include only items from other members of that private group:
