If you accept, you will then have access to the person's contact info, and they will have access to yours. The two of you make the necessary arrangements, and then, you do your thing. When you have completed your offer, you will need to mark it complete in the app. The other person confirms your offer has been completed, and then, you will receive the points you requested.
