3) Merchants who want to participate in “OE Hunt” with their store must:
➨ give 3 EAST ASIAN COUNTRIES as alternatives (1st, 2nd, 3rd choice) in the application – you will definitely get 1 of your named countries – preferences are considered but cannot be guaranteed as this depends on the app entry – we try to get apps for all countries – balanced selection! – there are 8 EAST ASIAN countries to choose from (if you are unsure about the culture and tradition of certain countries, I recommend to search the wiki or read my HUNT INFO) – http://besthomedealinsl.wordpress.com/category/upcoming-hunts
➨ offer an item that is about the EAST ASIAN COUNTRY you are approved for (you will be informed after your application is reviewed)
➨ be creative (this is a 2 L$ hunt – gift/s should be of good quality)
➨ create an UNISEX item or a separate FEMALE & MALE gift. If you create 2 gifts (1x male & 1x female), you must box them later separately and hide 2 hunt items in your store. Unisex gifts go in 1 hunt item. It is NOT allowed to just provide a female or only a male gift. All genders should be able to visit each store for a gift!
➨ offer an item that has great value and is worth to hunt for and represents your store (remember this is NOT a free hunt)!
➨ no visible decoys (invisible decoys should never be set for sale!)
➨ last week BEFORE the hunt you must follow a SPREADSHEET to see your STATUS.
If you have missed THREE steps to prepare your stuff on time, you will be excluded from this hunt!
