Q. How do I change the email address tied to my account?

A. You can change your email address by editing your account details within your “My Account” area.

Q. Why do I get a warning message that my selected username is invalid?

A. Every user must select a username for their account. The username can only contain letters, numbers, underscores, and hyphens. We recommend replacing all [spaces] with either an underscore or hyphen.

Incorrect: MY Username
Correct: MY-Username
Correct: MY_Username

Or, it says that the username selected is already in use.

Usernames are unique. Two users cannot share the same username. If you get a notice during registration that your username is already in use, you will need to select a different username.
Q. Why does it say that my email address is already in use?

A. If you get a notice that your email address is already in use when creating an account, it means that you have already created an account with us at some point. If you do not remember your login information, please enter your email address into the forgotten password form and you will be able to reset your password and log in to your account.

Q. How Do I Swap Items?

A.  Agree a fair value for the items you’re swapping. It should be an amount that you would feel comfortable accepting if you were selling the item instead of swapping. 

Both you and the ‘swapper’ list your items to swap for the same price. Create a listing just as if you are going to sell your items, and set the price you agreed. 

Buy each other's items using the ‘Buy’ button. Since you’ve both listed your items at the same price, it’s almost like you’re swapping money. Your transaction is now registered in our system.

Bid farewell to your item and send your swap off in the post. Send your item by tracked delivery and obtain proof of postage.

You must show proof of package and a photograph ahead of postage.

You must show proof of postage and ensure appropriate insurance cover is selected.

Keep in contact , let your fellow user know when you have sent or received the item.

You must leave feedback and review on a post.

If something goes wrong please contact the swapper in the first instance and try to resolve the problem.

Any user involved in a dispute will have their account suspended until it is resolved.
