We’re super excited to let you know about a huge improvement recently launched on RipeNear.Me. It’s now easier than ever to request produce, and manage the requests you’ve sent and received.
Previously, we used a fairly generic “send message” functionality. It was a little bit stale, and for first time users it was difficult to understand exactly how it worked.
Requests have now been completely overhauled. When you click “Request now” on that fabulous, in-season listing you’ve just found you’ll be greeted with an interface that just makes sense.
You can adjust the quantity, and if the grower has more than one food ripe you can add others to your request.
What was great about our previous “send message” system was the community and personal feeling. So we made sure we kept that by including the ability to send messages as often as you need/like. You can include a message with your request to really personalise things!
When you’re ready, hit “Send request”. We’ll forward an email to the grower, and will keep you up to date on the status.
We’ve also made it really easy to view all of your sent and received listings in one place - the Requests tab.
Happy growing and foraging!
