Community

The basic idea of Sugar Cup is that neighbor:ins can network with each other with the intention:

  • To sell items that are no longer needed or to inquire about them
  • Borrow items or ask for something to borrow
  • Offer support and ask for it
  • Publish events
  • Sharing news in the environment with neighbors

Participation for neighbors is free of charge.

Frequently asked questions

What is the digital neighborhood for?

  • If you run a neighborhood-based business, or are a non-profit organization or association, you must create an appropriate "local acteurs" profile

What can I do on Sugar Cup?

Is the use of Sugar Cup free of charge?

Yes. The use of the platform is and remains free of charge for private individuals. The basic version is also free for local players

Was darf als Privatperson nicht verkauft werden?

  • Concrete commercial offers such as real estate or insurance (there must be no intention to make a profit). Likewise, the regular sale of new goods is prohibited, if the impression is confirmed that a private person is engaged in a profit-oriented trade. In this case, it is mandatory to use a user account as a "local acteur".
  • Offers on behalf of a company
  • Drugs
  • Sex
  • Cigarettes/tobacco products
  • Alcohol

How is Sugar Cup different from Facebook groups, WhatsApp groups or mailing lists?

Sugar Cup is a closed network. Participation is only possible via registration. In addition, third parties from the outside cannot take a look at your neighborhood. It is completely reserved for the neighbors. Thus, a trustful exchange among neighbors can take place. At the same time, the functions of Sugar Cup are different from Facebook or WhatsApp groups. They are 100% tailored to exchanging information with your neighbors. Likewise, in the default setting, you only see ads and posts within a radius of about 1,000 meters - exactly the radius that you would otherwise have with neighbors.

Where is Sugar Cup available?

Sugar Cup is an open and free platform. Anyone can therefore register on the platform and start their own digital neighborhood. It is important that enough people in one's own environment are also involved - so feel free to advertise in your own circle of acquaintances.
