To publish a post, start by tapping the "Add post" button (5). The first thing you need to do is select the type of post. The post can be categorised as a request or an offer. Select "Request" to ask for help or service. If you want to offer help or a service, select "Offer".
Next, you will need to provide a title for your post. You can then enter more detailed information about your post, such as practical details of the help or service. For example, if you offer window cleaning, you can write that you have your own equipment. You can also set the compensation you request for the service you provide. The description of the post does not have to contain all the details, as they can be agreed in Naapu's chat.
You can also set a specific compensation to your post. In this way, you can easily communicate to your neighbors if there is any compensation associated with the implementation of the help or service. You can add information to your post that the compensation for the implementation of the help or service is 1) Free 2) Negotiable 3) One-time compensation or 4) Hourly compensation.
You can then add a photo or photos to your post. For example, if you ask for help with yard work, you can attach a photo of your yard to the post. Your profile picture will appear on the post if you don't add a photo.
Lastly, you will need to choose the area you want to publish the post to. By default, the distance of your post in relation to other Naapu users is determined by your current location. If you want, you can also publish your post to another location.
