Streamline Your Trades

Monday February 15, 2016 9:52 AM

Tracking all of your sales and purchases from ReefTrader just got easier!  Forget those bulky paper printouts (unless you are into that), now you can mark a trade as complete on your mobile device.  Just go to the printable list (My Reservations --> Printable Reservations List) and you can mark each trade complete as it happens.  Now you just have to worry about not running into anyone while updating your list when walking around the swap... seriously, don't make me drop my coral.  

Additionally, if you are feeling generous (and we hope you are) please consider donating to ReefTrader to help us cover our hosting costs and further innovation.  http://www.reeftrader.com/support

Happy Reefing!

Now more user (and mobile) friendly!

Monday December 21, 2015 1:42 PM

ReefTrader has made some significant changes to it's page to be both more user friendly and more easily viewable from a mobile device!  After checking out how you guys get your coral fix we realized that almost half of you do it from your phone, which explains slow traffic on the highways... So to make the site easier to view, and to help prevent traffic accidents, you will notice some changes.  As always if you have any questions, complaints or suggestions, feel free to email us at support@reeftrader.com

Happy Reefing!

September is coming...

Friday June 19, 2015 4:01 PM

While we all love our tanks, summer tends to be a time where they don't get as much love or attention, which means less frag swaps!  Don't worry though, Semptember is the start of Frag Swap Season and it isn't too far away.  Fall frag swaps will be added to the site soon, so be on the lookout and start saving up!

That's How It's Done!

Monday March 2, 2015 10:26 PM

Congratulations to the LEAR group and their wildly successful 2015 Frag Swap!  Attandance checked in at 858 people!!!  As for the pre-swap action that took place here on ReefTrader...  over $35,000 in reservations on a total of 1188 listings on Reeftrader.com. We look forward to next year's LEAR swap where we hope to beat those numbers!

You can revist all of the listings here: LEAR Frag Fest Listings

If you are a member of a club or group that puts on a frag swap type event, be sure to get in touch with us here at ReefTrader support@reeftrader.com  It's free and it's a great way to increase the excitement and participation at your swap.
