trust and safety

We want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable experience, so it's important to act in a respectful and responsible manner. Please take a moment to review these Community Rules.

Building trust and ensuring your safety

Participating in the mmMule community involves meeting & interacting with people as well as purchasing and delivering items either nationally or internationally. It is essential to protect yourself and use common sense, just like any other time you travel, do business or interact with someone new.

Once a request has been accepted by a local and confirmed by a Mule, the transaction is confirmed and must be honored. If you as a local have agreed to pay your Mule back, you must honor this agreement. As a Mule, you have agreed to deliver an item & you must uphold this promise.

Review user profiles in detail and use our mmMule messaging system to ask questions and get to know each other. If for any reason you feel uncomfortable, do not enter into an agreement.

To ensure a happy, hassle free transaction make sure you take on board the following:
