RapNet tags buy requests you have responded to and the date you responded.
Once a diamond is suggested, it disappears from your list of diamonds you can suggest.
You can contact the buyer multiple times for the same buy request and update your initial reply.
If the buy request is anonymous, you can’t see the name of the buyer company until it's converted into a trade on Trade Center.
Chat about a Buy Request
When you respond to a buy request with a message, a chat opens up.
You'll see your 5 latest chats on your homepage, similar to all other chats.
The buyer sees your response and you can continue chatting about the Buy Request using Chat.
When selecting a buy request chat, it will indicate the chat is from a Buy Request > click > chat is routed to the Buy Request page > respond from there.
A chat that has been initiated on a buy request and saved is not editable - you cannot update the message that was sent in the original response.
You can view the chat and continue to chat by pressing the chat icon
