Swap stuff

no one send stuff in

Swapitshop was one of the greatest web-sites I had ever had the privalidge to of been a member of. You could get what your heart desired on swapitshop.co.uk. That was in the summer before the great swapping site was taken off-line due to bankrupcy. Now it is filled with swappers who don't send...

Swapitshop Vs. Swaphut - A definitive guide. So, I think I would be right in saying that these two sites are pretty much the main sites where you can swap things. But which is best? Firstly, here’s the deal with swapitshop.co.uk, and those of you who want to know more about Swaphut can go...

Please read bottom of opinion for update... I have been using Swapitshop for a while now, have experienced both sides of the site, so here is my story... Firstly, you must register. You log-in with your email address and a password, but your bids are shown by a nickname. Good, do not want people...

Do you remember Noel Edmonds multi-coloured swap shop from the 80's? Well Swapitshop are quite similar to that classic show but with a few small changes. Firstly you will need to register here (free) www.swapitshop.com Then after you have filled out all the details (make sure to put your genuine...

Imagine an eBay for children and you have captured the essence of Swapitshop. Designed as an auction site for children, it allows its members to auction off their old items such as CD albums, DVDs, toys, video games, books and more for "swapits" (the currency used on the website). You then use...

“Fundamentally Flawed”

published 23/03/2001

Ability to swap unwanted stuff.

Where do I start?

We’ve seen the adverts about Swapitshop on TV, read the Ciao opinions and remembered the days of multi-coloured Swapshop with Noel Edmonds and the rather annoying Keith Chegwin, so we thought we would give it a go seeing as we had loads of doubles of beanie babies to get rid of. To the...

“Hopit to swapit!”

published 28/10/2007

Great for kids - safe auction site

Not enough members in my opinon

Did you hear about the American guy who started a journey into the world of swapping? He started with a paper clip and now has a house! Well this review is not about him but about a UK website swapitshop.com. As the website title says 'swap it'. Swap what? You may ask. Well on this child friendly...

This is a great idea for a website because unlike other auction style sites you don’t bid for items with money, you bid using swapits. You get 50 of these when you register and list your first swap to get you started. You can then earn more by somebody winning your swap and having the value...

Just think how many toys, accessories you have spent on, and that are just lying around, literally collecting dust. The Sega Mega drive you bought, which now you have got tired of playing, the compact CD player you never use or have managed to get two of. (Don't ask me how). Had a thing. There...

“No worry for money transfer”

published 19/05/2001

No money transfer needed

Range of items to bid is limited

This site is a fairly different one to the other on-line auction sites as accumulatable points called swapits are introduced. Still similar with other auction sites where you can place an item and set a minimum and maximum value (max value can only be min value's 15 times), describe the item...

I joined up with swapitshop.co.uk pretty much as soon as it was advertised, thinking it would be a great way to get rid of some 'stuff'. I duly signed up and put up my 'swaps'. I received my 'swapits' the currency with which you 'bid' for items you want and sat back and waited. It was great fun...
