Logging into RipeNear.Me with your Facebook, Google and/or Twitter account is simple and fast, and means you won't experience the pain of forgetten passwords. Here's how to set it up:

Your account will have been created, and you’ll be directed to your new user profile.

You'll now be able to log in to RipeNearMe by clicking on Login on the top right of the page, and then selecting the service you connected.

 


Problem solving

 

1. I logged in with social media and I can't see any of the produce I added earlier.

Solution: Most likely you have created a new account, rather than connecting your existing account. This can happen if your 3rd party social media account uses a different email address to your RipeNearMe profile - since it's your unique identifier our software won't know it's you.

The solution is simple. First, cancel your newly created account by following these steps:

  1. Login via social media, using the same service as before.
  2. Edit your account.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page, then click Cancel account.

    Note: this will permanently remove everything related to this account. If you have used this new account for any activity that you'd like to keep (adding produce, subscribing, sending messages) don't delete the account. Instead, get in contact with us and we will merge your activity to your older account.

  4. Click Cancel account on the confirmation page.
  5. Click on the link in the confirmation email (sent to the address associated with your 3rd party social media account) to complete the process.

Now let's get your accounts connected! Log into RipeNearMe using the email address and password of your pre-existing account and follow the instructions outlined for Connecting your existing account to Facebook, Twitter and Google above.

 

2. I see this error message when I try to login: “You are trying to log in with email address of another user.”

Solution: Most likely this means you have a RipeNearMe account and tried to log in with your Facebook, Twitter or Google profile before first connecting your accounts. See Connecting your existing account to Facebook, Twitter and Google above.
