When buying items in Trove, search for an item you like, and make an offer to the seller, which includes the price you’re willing to pay and a time you’ll pick the item up if the seller has provided his/her availability. At that time, if you've made an offer with your debit or credit card, we’ll authorize your card for the price of the item. Don’t worry! Funds are not released to the seller until you examine the item in person and confirm you’d like to buy it.
If the seller accepts your offer, the transaction is agreed to and you should meet the seller at the agreed time and location to perform a final review and exchange the item. If you like the item after this final inspection, you should complete the transaction in the Trove app, which confirms your interest, and, if paying via debit/credit, releases funds to the seller. If you're paying in cash, be sure to meet somewhere safe, and pay the seller when Completing the transaction.
Once the seller receives notification that you have completed the transaction in Trove, s/he can release the item to you.
Pro-tip: Always make sure to perform a thorough final review of your item before completing a transaction. All sales are final!
Also, as Trove is an open website that anyone can register using a Facebook or Google Account (there are a lot of fake Facebook and Google users these days), please take caution dealing with people.
