Post your buy request, then get on with your work as RapNet works in the background sending you diamonds matching your request.

You can post 3 types of Buy Requests:

  1. Public Buy Request: all RapNet members can view the request and the company posting the request, and respond to the post.

  2. Private Buy Request: only the buy request owner can see the request and receive RapNet notifications when diamonds become available on RapNet.

  3. Anonymous Buy Request: The location and details of the buy request are public but the buy request owner's company details are hidden.

RapNet instantly alerts you with a list of matching diamonds available on RapNet, and notify/email you when sellers respond to your buy request.
