Posting an Offering
BoatEasy's marketplace allows users to post offerings for just about anything boating related. Whether you need something done or you're looking to offer your services, there are a few things you can do to make your offering stand out. When it comes to posting an offering, pictures and details are everything. Provide a detailed description of what you are offering and what kind of experience you have. If you would like to provide several different things, that's great, just be sure to post them as separate offerings in their appropriate categories. You can include a link in one post to other posts you've made so users viewing one offering can see the full extent of your services. If you have a YouTube video of your product or service, feel free to embed it in your post as well.
Finding the right equipment for your boat can be difficult and expensive. BoatEasy's boater to boater rental service makes it easy by allowing members who share your passion to rent out their gear. Put the money you save toward your next day on the water or if you have something you think other boaters would enjoy using, rent it out and make an extra buck while you're not using it.
At BoatEasy we charge a fee of 2% on all transactions handled through the site in order to help keep the site up and running. If you have any questions about our fee or how it works, just ask.
