FyndIt is a unique online service that allows people from all over the world the ability to earn money finding stuff for others. Perhaps you are an internet sleuth or have the 4-1-1 on local shops in your area. If you know where to find stuff, you can earn bounty rewards posting stuff that people want on FyndIt.
Here’s how it works, someone wants something, but they are having a really hard time locating it, so they post it as a Want to FyndIt. They offer a description of the item, the condition they want it in and the price they are willing to pay for it. As an incentive to entice others to help look for their item, Wanters will post a bounty reward. The reward could be anywhere from $1.00 to $5.00 to $25.00 or more! Bounty rewards are easily cashed out through PayPal.
A Finder is someone who goes out looking for the Want either online or in a store. Once they locate the item, they post a photo and details about the item as a Find. The Wanter reviews the Find and if it is what they are looking for they will accept it as a match. When a match is made the bounty reward amount is transferred to the Finders account, and the secret location of the item is revealed to the Wanter. The Wanter then contacts the seller of the item and purchases it directly from them.
Quick Tips For Posting A Find
Tip #1: Do not divulge your Find’s location! You want to keep it a secret so that you can earn that bounty reward.
So, if you copy and paste an online link make sure to remove any language referencing where you got it from. For example, a link copied from eBay might make a reference to an “Auction” or “eBay store name”. Make sure to edit the auto-generated description.
Don’t paste any links directly into the description box! They will show up on your Find’s page. So, if you want to physically enter an item’s location on the maps plus add an online link, you can paste the link under the “More Details>Additional notes on the location of the item” section. Any text you put in this box will only be revealed if the Wanter accepts the match.
Tip #2: A picture is worth a thousand words.
It is super important for someone to be able to see the item! We’ve added the ability to add multiple photos, so add images from as many angles as possible.
Tip #3 Make sure to add the cost & shipping price.
Include how much the item costs in addition to the shipping amount if possible. If you can’t figure out the shipping, make sure to specify in your Find that the shipping cost is not included.
Tip #4 Details, details, details…
Click on the “More Details” drop down menu to add in a category for the item and other important details. The more a person knows about the item, the more likely they are to accept it as a match.
Tip #5 Keep trying!
Just because a Wanter rejects your Find does not mean that there isn’t a better one out there! Keep looking and keep posting Finds.
Making money at FyndIt is easy! All you have to do is create an account, verify your email and you are on your way to finding and posting stuff people want. If someone accepts your Find as a match, you’re golden! Those bounty rewards really add up after a while.
