6. Use Demand function

If you do not find the item you want, you can inquire whether any of the Sellers on LAYLA might have it by using the "Demand" function. After signing up as a user, you can list your demand from MyPage.

Once your demand is listed a request will be sent to all Sellers on LAYLA. The Seller who has your wanted item will answer to your demand via their reciprocal feature that is called "Supply" function by listing that product. A Buyer who listed the demand will be notified immediately by email with "Supply" product's information, and "Supply" product will be visible ONLY to that Buyer for the following 24 hours. If a purchase is not made within 24 hours, the "Supply" product will be released to all Buyers on LAYLA.
