Joining a group
Brisbane locals can join BrisLETS – details can be found at brislets.com.
People coming from out of town can check out the list of groups to find their nearest community exchange. There’s even a group called “Anywhere in Australia” for those without a local group.
Before you sign you’ll need to think of a couple things you’d like to offer. Adelaide LETS have a great ‘Inspiration List’ to help you think of what you might enjoy offering.
When your account is approved you’ll be given a member number and password to access the online trading post of offers and wants in our worldwide network.
How do I pay?
When you use a service, or buy something through the Community Exchange System the member you’re trading with would normally charge you account. It’s like an online bank transfer. You get a notification about the the charge. If there are any issues with the charge it can be fixed up by the trader, or the admin for your group.
Shopping with paper units
In order to make shopping easier at the market day we will be issuing paper notes at the registration desk. You can ‘buy’ paper units with a debit from your trading account. At the end of the day you can return surplus paper units today for a credit to your account.
Can I spend first and earn later?
Yes! You can start trading immediately to buy and sell goods and services with local currency. We don’t care if you earn or spend first. If you spend first – that’s simply a commitment to find ways to contribute your skills. We are looking forward to brainstorming with you for possible ways you can earn.
Please don’t hesitate to ask us more about this practical and popular way to experience the new economy. Questions are most welcome on Community Exchange System Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/cesaustralia
