When you join, you are called a TimeBank member.
When you offer help to someone on the PRICE TimeBank, it is called an OFFER.
When you ask others on the PRICE TimeBank for something you need help with, it is called a NEED.
You will be informed when your need is matched by an offer or when your offer meets someone's need.
You can then decide whether you want to agree something with another member. This is called a TRANSACTION.
Each hour you give or take is 1 hour of TIME CREDIT.
You need to make sure you give and take because we all have skills and needs.
You need to stay safe.
We suggest you only do TRANSACTIONS with people who you know and trust.
To get to know a person you should find out as much as possible about them first.
Here are some ways to find out about a person:
Looking up their name and/or company name e.g. on Google
Talking to them over the phone
Asking your friends and workmates if they know this person
Meeting in a safe public place (e.g. in a coffee shop)
Taking someone you know with you when you meet a new person
