StretchGO platform works by making sure you have a reason to smile anytime you are an EXPERT or IN NEED. On this page, we will have a look at how StretchGO works and how to really be part of this great platform.
First of all, it is very important to understand that StretchGO consists of two major types of members: The EXPERTS and the IN NEEDS.
Registering an account at StretchGO is FREE and will always remain FREE and can be done at anytime of the day, week, month, or year. To register, you simply click the "CREATE AN ACCOUNT" link below the login form. You need to supply valid information on the registration form.
Once you are done registering, an email will be sent to your email address (used to register) with a link to verify the validity of your email.
At this point, you can now login with the username and password supplied during registration after clicking the verification link.
After the above step, everybody automatically becomes an IN NEED. This means you can post any issue on StretchGO forum and get answered by the StretchGO experts. The forum is accessed by clicking the "STRETCH NOW" link on the top menu.
However, to become an Expert, you will need to get verified as an Expert in a certain field. These are the members who do earn GO COINS as income for the wonderful work they help at StretchGO. They Stretch an Extra mile to those in need of clarifications on different activities of daily living.
To do this, you need to make an application by following the steps outlines in this Experts application process link.
After sending these details, you will need to wait patiently to be approved. When approved, your membership will be upgraded to "EXPERT" level and you can now start helping people with your expertise on the forum.
a). An EXPERT member can be in NEED but an IN NEED member cannot play an expert role on StretchGO.
b). All applications will be attended to if they meet all requirements. This depends on case by case basis. Please be patient after your application. You may also check on our careers page and announcements section to apply when certain expert openings are live. It is during these periods that we have most experts recruited faster.
