Functions   The key features of Cyclos are discussed below.

For participants

Cyclos is a market place and transactional system in one. So what does this mean?

Think of a market place website like an on line market: an on line meeting point of supply and demand. People use it to search for goods and services and/or to advertise goods and services. Participants can advertise, ask for, and search.

An example of a transactional system is online banking. Each participant has one or more accounts, makes and receives payments, and sends and receives bills.

Other functions include (some functions may be switched off by the administration):

- A built-in message system to send messages to the administration or other participants, either in the Cyclos mailbox or via email
- The option to receive notifications of new payments, bills, expiring loans and so on.
- The option to receive notifications of a new advertisement that satisfies personal criteria
- An address book of frequently used contacts
- Advanced search possibilities
- The option to give and receive feedback
- Complete, searchable transaction history
- Loans and automatic repayments

More information   Technical information on Cyclos

Additional terms of use for Cyclos

For Cyclos there are these additional terms of use:
- It is possible for an administrator to change program .jsp pages. This can easily break the application. If you use this function, there will be no (free) support. We recommend against changing the program .jsp pages (this does not apply to the so called 'static pages').
- If you request support, you will be asked for your configuration plan. Given the broad configuration possibilities of Cyclos, without it it will be impossible to provide support specific to your configuration. The configuration plan must contain the following items and their settings: account types, transaction types, transaction fees, contributions, groups, permissions (except for the standard configuration of Cyclos). This means, that all configuration changes that were made must be described in the configuration plan.

Our English demo system is available here.
At request an administration login is available for customers.

There are English, German and other language demos at the Cyclos project site:
http://project.cyclos.org.
