Advantages A great service, better than selling your items.
Disadvantages Some people dont end up sending their items to you. So to avoid dissapointing people, always send your items ASAP!
UPDATED - See bottom of page....Got games and cds that you used to love but are now bored of? Been given christmas/birthday presents by relatives that you know you'll never use? Have you got something that you have bought that you never use, but others might like? Then Swapitshop is the place to be!
The currency of swapitshop are swappits. You get 10 swappits when you register. To earn swappits, you have to post your own items on the site, which people will bid for if its in good condition and the swappits asked for are reasonable.You post your unwanted items in the correct catagories, write a description of it, then put a minimum swap value ( this is the minimum amount of swappits that you are willing to sell your item for) and a swap now value ( this is the maximum your item is worth, and if people bid this amount, the swap session closes and they have won the item). If you dont have any idea what your item is worth, have a look at similar products to yours on the site, and see how much they are going for.
Once they have recieved the item, you will receive your swappits and can start bidding on things you want!Remember, the only people who will know your personnel information and address are the people at swappitshop.
I have swapped several items and swappitshop, and I am very pleased with the service, and the quality of the goods I recieved.
One of the opinions of my comment said I need to write more about my personal experiences, so here I am!
I joined a few weeks ago, and I put up some phone covers. After a couple of days, someone bid my 'swap now' value (600 swappits). I packaged it up, and sent it as quickly as possible. The next day, it arrived at swappitshop (You can find out where it is on your accounts page) and the sent it off immediately. Then, after 3 days (the time swappitshop allows for the package to arrive) I recieved my swappits!
Since then, I have added a few more items to the site and have had and are getting great bids for them. I have also bid on a few other things on the site, most of which are being sent to me at the moment.
I think www.swapitshop.com deserves 5 stars because it gives children a taste of how to handle currency, it is fun in the sense that you are getting new things just by swapping items you are now bored of, and makes using the internet and the computer fun.
The site could be improved however, by having the items posted more closly monitered, and removing items that are too highly priced, or things that no-one will ever want (such as posters that came with magazines).
Swapitshop has closed its doors, due to lack of funds. I, along with many others have lost out on a lot of swapits that were in our accounts ( I had 800). But, hopefully (fingers-crossed), they will be bought out and continue trading again, because it was a great service!
