But by far the best reason, the point of this blog is that swapping helps you save a HUGE amount of money while getting loads of things that you love! Most swapping websites are free to join (some require a fee for upgraded services) and you pay only the postage required to mail your package. Many sites allow you to not only trade items with other members but also put items up for sale to earn some extra cash!
When you join any swapping website, you'll be known as a newbie until you have completed several trades and built up a good reputation. Most websites work by having you upload pictures and descriptions of the items you'd like to trade. Then you can send messages and make offers to people you would like to trade with, and also recieve messages and offers from them. Once you have agreed upon an offer, you then exchange addresses and and agree upon a date to mail the items. As a newbie you will most likely be asked to post first for saftey purposes. As with anything in life, you must use your best discression on whom to swap with because sadly the possibility of swaplifting does exist. Because some sad, dishonest soul could steal your goods, even if you are asked to post first, you can still help protect yourself by only trading with people who have done many trades with high levels of good feedback and no negative feedback. Most all websites have some form of rating or feedback system for members and you can view their profiles before swapping with them. Also be aware that the postal system is not 100% perfect and a package could become lost in the mail. To protect yourself, always save copies of your postal reciepts incase a dispute should arrise. If it is not too much of an extra expense, you can also send your package recorded delivery and receive a tracking number to insure your package makes it to its destination. Other than that, there really are no drawbacks to swapping, and there are limitless possibilites, so have fun with it!
