The newest feature on HauteTrader allows you to view your Trader-Closet stats. You can now view if your closet is active, the number of Haute-Points you hold, and the balance of your trade fee account. The slide out bar also informs you of any new membership alerts or updates.
– TRADER-CLOSET STATS SLIDE OUT –
– INVITE A FRIEND FEATURE –
Do you love us, darling? We love you too! But for us to grow we need for you to tell your friends just how much you love us. And to thank you for doing this, every time that you invite three active friends to HauteTrader you’ll be rewarded with 100 Haute-Points! To help get your friends started, they will receive their first 100 Haute-Points just for activating their Trader-Closet!
Now, what are you waiting for?… Start spreading the word!
– PREMIUM HAUTE-POINT ACCEPTANCE OPTIONS –
Premium listing allows for your trade to be facilitated in the safest and securest way possible. We authenticate and inspect your entire trade and authenticate both the item to you and from you. This will never change, but some of the other features related to Premium item listings have. Please see them below:
1. Premium Bags are the ONLY items that may be listed as Not accepting Haute-Point only trades.
2. We no longer issue trade rewards on Premium bags, if they are listed as Not-Accepting Haute-Points.
Our rationale for these changes is based on our desire for the system to function smoothly as a “Trade-Only” marketplace, with a valuable and exclusive trading currency, which all of our members can use easily and freely, to trade for the perfect looks… and as always you’ll get more each time you make your fabulous fashion trades!
– PREMIUM LISTING ICONS –
We have added premium icons so that you may quickly identify Premium items while browsing. You will see a “P” icon on all Premium listings and a “PN” icon on all Premium bags listings that are Not Accepting Haute-Points. To allow you time to better understand our trading system, by default, all Premium bags are listed as Not accepting Haute-Points trades, but you may change this option to accepting Haute-Points, at a later time from your item details page.
– REPORT MEMBER & REPORT ITEM POPUPS FEATURE-
We are dedicated to ensuring that HauteTrader is a safe trading community. We are reliant on your honest and open input to maintain this standard. We consider you to be our second set of eyes and ears. For this reason, we have implemented “Report closet” and “Report user” features. We ask that you utilize these pop-ups and alert us to members or items that do not meet the trading criteria as set by HauteTrader.
If you find an item that appears to be counterfeit, not listed by the designer name as shown, or fails to meet any other listing quality standard, we ask that you immediately alert our team using the Report Item popup.
If you find a Trader-Closet which you feel shows spammy content, demeans other users of our community or simply gives you a weird feeling, we ask that you immediately alert our style team using the Report User popup.
– TRADE CANCELLATION FEATURE –
You can now easily opt out of your trades agreements by making a cancellation. You may immediately opt out of Haute-Points Only trade agreements by pressing the “Cancel” button located on your Haute-Points trade agreement page.
So that our system is fair to all members, you will unfortunately receive an automatic one star review detailing that you have canceled your trade.
Trade-Offer agreement cancellations work a bit differently. If the corresponding trader has not yet printed their shipping label, we will issue an immediate trade cancellation. If the corresponding trader has already printed their shipping label, you will be required to issue a request to cancel the trade by pressing the Request Cancellation Button from your trade agreement page. This will inform the corresponding trader that a request to cancel the trade agreement is pending. The recipient is then given 24 hours to respond to the request by agreeing to cancel or disagreeing with the request, and continuing with the trade agreement as approved.
– TRADE FEE BALANCE FEATURE –
If your trade is cancelled, or your offer declined, your funds will go into your secure HauteTrader trade fee balance account. With this balance, you can make more trade-offers without the hassle of re-entering your credit card information each time. You may check the balance of your account by visiting your Trade History > Balance log page, or you may find your balance at the top of your Trader-Closet stats.
– INACTIVE ITEM 30 DAY REMOVAL FEATURE –
How annoying is it to find the perfect trade just to find out the closet’s owner is inactive. We understand. For this reason, items belonging to closets which are not activated within 30 days of listing, will be hidden from HauteTrader’s browsing page. To make these listings live again, the closet owner will simply need to complete their closet activation.
– ABANDONED ACCOUNT 60 DAY ITEM REMOVAL FEATURE –
To achieve the same goal as inactive closet item removals, we will hide listings, which we consider abandoned. An abandoned item is one that belongs to a member who has failed to log into the system within 60 days. We do this to ensure an optimal browsing experience, but also incase the item’s owner is no longer in possession of the listed item, or is simply no longer interested in trading it. To make these listings live again, the closet’s owner can simply log back into their account.
