The default method of communication on Hip is the Hip Message System. Messages can be sent through a variety of options, including from item listing pages (by clicking on the Question tab) as well as through the Contact Buyer/Seller buttons located next to any order in the Members Area Buying/Selling sections.
When you receive a new message, we'll send you an email alert, with a link to review and respond to the message through the Hip Message System. You can also review your messages at any time from the Members Area > Messages page:
