Let's Talk About 'Come Anytime' Pickups

'Come Anytime' Pickups - it's as convenient as it sounds! Simply post your items and others can pick them up at their convenience. No messaging required.

This week we're talking about Come Anytime pickups, the bread and butter of the Freeya service—the feature that really makes Freeya stand above the rest of the free marketplace services (in our opinion).

Come Anytime pickups are contactless by nature. You don't have to be home when the item gets picked up—you just need to be sure you leave that item where another Freeya user can pick it up. Likely, it's the same place where your Uber Eats driver sets your food delivery, or where packages are delivered. No messaging is required for these pickups.

Set it and forget it with Come Anytime posts / pickups!

Want to know more?? Here's the TLDR on Come Anytime:

  • When Posting an item, make sure to place it in an easy to find location on your property. Be sure to include notes in your pickup details describing where people can find them.
  • When picking up an item, your pickup will begin as soon as you click 'Pick Up'. You'll have 2 hours by default [3 hours if you're a Pro Member!] And you can also buy more time for $0.99 per additional hour.
  • Before you commit to picking up the item, you can use the map view in the item details to get a sense of the general location where the item is located. Also, the approximate distance is given, relative to whatever location you're using to view the feed. (Update the location using the Filter button in the feed). Distances are straight line, not driving distance. The exact address will be shared with you as soon as you click the 'Pick up' button.
  • Messaging is not available for Come Anytime pickups. We know this is limiting, and there are certain circumstances where folks might benefit from messaging. If you're posting items and you like the messaging feature, use Plan Ahead (Scheduled) pickup styles instead.
  • If you have a general question about the item (how big is it, does it work, what size are they, etc) you can use the Q&A feature in the item details. Once your question is answered it will be visible to other users as well!
  • All items in the feed are more than likely still available, so no need to ask the person if it's still available. 4% of items get marked missing / unavailable during pickups, and we're working hard to make this number even lower!.
  • Did you pick it up? Please confirm your pickup before it expires! This is extremely important to help keep things running smoothly. You can also cancel a pickup at any time during the pickup window, no problem-o.
  • If you have any issues during a pickup or need to reach the other person, use the 'Report a Problem' feature in the app, or send an email to .
  • Come Anytime pickups aren't great for folks living in large apartment buildings with locked access, or gated communities. Instead, you'll want to use the Plan Ahead pickup style, and arrange to meet people when they pick up their stuff. Alternatively, you could talk with your building manager and see if there is a public area on the property that could be designated for Freeya pickups.

Finally, safety and reliability are our top goals when it comes to all of the pickup styles. We're working hard to increase the reliability of the app. We want all pickups to be successful, and we're working on new updates to make sure that all items in the feed are available and easy to find. If you ever experience any issues, please use the Report a Problem feature in the app, or send us an email at . We usually get back within a day or two.
