How to Join a Pool (beta version)
Welcome to pool.farm! We’re so glad you’ve joined our community.
This page will take you through the steps you need to join a pool in the current beta version of our product.
1. SIGN UP
If you haven’t already done so, create an account here. All you need is an email address and a password. It’s free.
2. GET TO KNOW A POOL
When invited to a pool by a friend, neighbour or colleague, check out the pool details. By expanding the “Pool summary” section, you can see the “Pool rules”: details for the last date to order, how to pay the pool admin, where and when to pick up.
IMPORTANT: ONLY POOL WITH PEOPLE YOU CAN TRUST!
3. JOIN POOL
If you agree with the pool rules, click “JOIN POOL” at the top.
Note: you are not obligated to buy something if you join a pool, and you can leave a pool after joining up until the “Order by date”, at which time the pool will be closed.
After joining a pool, two additional sections will appear: “My Items” and “Items.” To add items to you order, jump down to the “Items” section and check an item to your list. Make sure to page through to see all available items.
4. EDIT YOUR ORDER
Once you have an added an item to your list, you can edit the quantity, or delete it, by scrolling up to the “My Items” section.
Here you can also see a summary of your order.
5. FINISH YOUR ORDER
As soon as you add items or edit a quantity, your order is recorded — there is no need to hit submit, and you will not receive a confirmation email. You can go back and edit your order at any time until the pool is closed, at which point the pool admin will take the group order and send it to the supplier.
You can pay your pool admin in whichever way they have specified in the pool description.
6. SHARE THE POOL
If you’d like to share the pool, you can copy the url from the pool page directly and send it to your friends.
