Step 1: Registration – Joining the Timebanking Movement

The first step on your Timebanking journey is simple yet crucial – registration. By filling out a user-friendly
form on our website, you become a valued member of the Timebanking community. During this process, you’ll provide
essential personal information and agree to our terms and conditions. This is also the perfect opportunity for you
to showcase your talents and expertise by detailing the services you can offer to other members.

Step 2: Profile Completion – Your Gateway to Meaningful Connections

Once you’ve registered, it’s time to complete your profile. This step allows you to personalize your Timebanking
experience and maximize your potential for meaningful connections. Share your available schedule, specify the
services you can provide, and express the areas where you might require assistance. By doing so, you lay the
foundation for an enriching journey filled with opportunities to give and receive support.

Step 3: Service Request – Bridging the Gap between Needs and Offerings

In the Timebanking community, the spirit of cooperation reigns supreme. When a member requires a service that
aligns with your skills, they will submit a service request. As a service provider, you’ll receive a prompt
notification, empowering you to choose whether to accept or decline the request. By fostering an atmosphere of
choice and respect, Timebank Ireland ensures that every interaction is meaningful and impactful.

Step 4: Providing Service – Empowering Others, Earning Time Credits

Once you’ve accepted a service request, it’s time to shine. By delivering the service as promised, you not only
support the needs of your fellow community members but also earn Time Credits. In the Timebanking system, an hour
of service equates to one Time Credit, regardless of the service’s nature. This principle of equality underscores
the true essence of Timebanking – recognizing the value of every contribution.

Step 5: Receiving Service – A Currency of Gratitude, A World of Possibilities

The beauty of Timebanking lies in its reciprocity. When you find yourself in need of a service, you can use your
earned Time Credits to “buy” it from another member. A seamless process allows you to search for the service you
require, submit a request, and coordinate with the provider to get the job done. This interconnectedness fosters a
genuine sense of community and ensures that everyone’s needs are met.

Step 6: Feedback and Ratings – Nurturing Trust and Quality

In the Timebanking community, trust and quality are paramount. After a service is completed, both parties have the
opportunity to leave feedback and rate their experience. This robust feedback loop not only helps members build a
strong sense of trust but also maintains the highest level of quality throughout the community. With this
commitment to excellence, Timebank Ireland ensures that every interaction is an enriching one.
