How to create an offer?
To create an offer, first decide whether you are buying or selling. If you want to sell bitcoin, tap the "Selling" tab on the Vexl app's home page.
Then tap the plus sign (+), which will take you to the offers page.
From there, you will see the option to create a new offer.
Fill out a description that includes what you are selling and how much, and then complete the rest of the required details, such as currency, amount, fees, location, online or only in person, payment method, and transaction type (on chain or lightning.)
You can choose optional settings such as "Price Triggers," which will automatically post your offer when the price of bitcoin reaches a certain point.
You must then choose the friend level for your offer, deciding who will see it.
If you want to trade only with friends, select "1st degree." If you want to use your wider social network, choose "2nd degree," which will show the offer to friends and friends of friends.
Are there fees? What the fees mean and who pays the fees?
There are no fees to buy and sell bitcoin with the Vexl app.

You should consider factors such as the current market conditions and the competition when deciding what fee to set.
What is the purpose of a fee? How should I decide what fee I should set?
The purpose of the fees is to compensate for the time and effort required to create and maintain an offer. Additionally, fees can help to ensure that the marketplace remains fair and competitive.
When deciding what fee to set, you should consider factors such as current market conditions and the competition.
If you set your fee too high, you may struggle to attract buyers or sellers. However, if you set your fee too low, you may not make as much money as you could.
