New Swap Site Features & Wait List Open!

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Good News – we just opened up the swap site to everyone on the wait list! (If you are on the wait list, check your email for instructions if you’re having any issues logging in).

We’re also still adding lots of new features to the site based on your feedback. (Again, thank you SO much for all your helpful suggestions! Keep them coming!)

Here are the latest updates:

Add Items to Swap

1) You can now add more items to your initial swap request. When you click +Add More Items, you’ll be able to view all of the items that swapper has listed and you can add as many to your request as you like.

(FYI – we’re still working on counter swap offers. It’s definitely a technical challenge!)

Browse By Name

2) When you’re listing an item from a box, instead of browsing through multiple pages of products, you can now start typing in the name of the product to find it.  (Thanks for this suggestion Liz N!)

I’ll keep you posted as we roll out more features!

  28. Is there a way to get less notifications? right now, everytime something happens, I am getting an email, it is cluttering up my email so much. Is there an option for just getting accepted swap emails?

    • Right now there isn’t a way, but we’ll work on having notification settings. Just to verify, you don’t want to get emails when someone has requested a swap item from you?

  29. With Shipping costing so much, I would be more interested in doing multiple swaps with one person. Like 5-6 items for there 5-6 items. It would be like getting a new box each month were I get to pick the items 🙂 I need to make the time to browse this site more.

    • You now can swap multiple items for multiple items! We’re also working on adding the feature to let you counter swap offers.

  30. I was wondering if there was a way to delete a feedback comment I’ve given accidentally (I wanted to comment to my trader and I made the comment in the feedback part twice) I would like to give correct feedback and remove my address from the fb comment, please

  31. Please add me to the waitlist!!

    • Just sent you an email!

  32. Somehow I’ve stopped getting email updates when swaps have been accepted/cancelled/etc. I used to get one every time there was an update on a swap, but now I’m getting them infrequently, if at all.

    • Thanks for letting us know – we’ll look into it.

    • They all pop up in my spam folder so check there! All but a couple have been going there. I use gmail and have been checking not spam on all so hopefully it won’t keep happening.

    • Whoops, nevermind – User error. They’re just going to spam now.

    • look at your junk mail…I’ve gotten some there and some in my inbox???

  33. Please adds me to wait list. Thanks!

    • Just sent you an email!

  34. A quick question: when I go to the swap site and then log in, it takes me back to the boxes site. On the boxes site, there’s no link ( that I can find) that brings me back to the swap site…I have to re-type the URL. It would be nice if there was a button to jump easily from site to site!
    Also, I can’t find the items I have listed again. Is there a link I’m missing?

    • Thanks for the feedback, once we are out of Beta testing, we’ll add navigation throughout the site so it’s easy to access the swap site. And to access the items you’ve listed, in the upper right hand corner next to your name, if you click the triangle, Click View Your Profile Page.

  35. I’d like to be added to the wait-list, please? TY

    • Just sent you an email!

  36. Would you mind to add me to the wait list or let me know how to add myself!

    Thank you!

    • Just sent you an email!

  37. Hi! I love your site and I cannot stop swapping. I would love the option to “favorite” or “save” products or people. I found a few products that I wanted to swap but I didn’t want to swap to many products at once so I made a small list as a reminder. My only other suggestion, very minor, would maybe be subcategories. I was trying to look at all the available nail polishes but you really have to go through every page to do that. Anyway I love your site!! Thank you so much!!

    • i would love this feature as well! I just started using the swap feature and would love to be able to “favorite” or love an item for later. might also be neat to see how popular certain things are!

    • Thanks so much for the feedback and for using the swap site! I love the idea of being able to “favorite” items as your browse, and we’ll be adding that soon. We also are working right now on making categories more specific. When we first built this we didn’t expect so many listings – it’s amazing! So we should have refined categories up and running soon!

      Keep the feedback coming, and I’m so glad you’re enjoying swapping! 🙂

  38. Please add me to the wait list. (:

    • Just sent you an email!

  39. How do you get on the waiting list? I’d love to swap something!

    • Just sent you an email!

  40. Under the mail carrier, is it possible to add Canada Post for Canadians 🙂 ? Thx!

    • We’ll work on that! 🙂

    • OK – we just added Canada Post! It’s live now 🙂

      • Awesome! Thank you for the fast response and thank you for creating the site, I just got a first successful swap! 🙂

        • Yay for first swap! 🙂

  41. Id like to be on the wait list as well.

    • Just sent you an email!

  42. I’d love to be added to the wait list as well! Thanks!

    • Just sent you an email!

  43. Hey! Just a heads up, but if you search using a percentage sign (%) on the swap page nothing comes back; you might need to check to make sure there are escape characters if special chars appear in a search 🙂

    • Thanks so much – fixed!

  44. I’d love to be added to the wait list!

    • Just sent you an email!

  45. Hi Liz, I was just wondering if it’s a requirement that we get tracking info or if we can ask who we’re swapping with if it’s okay not to get it. It cost me $5 extra today to get tracking info for a pretty small package so I’d kind of prefer not to if I don’t have to. And I don’t mind not having it either! But, I wanted to ask before I start telling people that.

    • It’s not a requirement, but a lot of people like it, so that’s why we have the page where you can enter package tracking info. I think as long as you agree with your fellow swapper upfront that you won’t be purchasing tracking, you should be good! 🙂

    • If you are shipping from AND to a US city, I think you can ship a small Priority flat rate box from USPS for pretty cheap. It doesn’t matter how much it weighs as long as you can fit it into the box, and it comes with free tracking and free insurance. I shipped from CA to Ohio Priority 2 day for $5.25. You get a small discount if you pay online vs at the post office (it would’ve been $5.80.)

    • Tracking is free and you get a small discount on top of that if you use your paypal account to purchase and print the label! Paypal.com/shipnow. The only thing is you need the exact weight in ounces of your package. I use my small food scale and it works very well.

  46. Thanks a bunch! My only suggestion so far is to friendly-tize the phrase “reject this swap” to something more friendly like “sorry, not this time” or something along those lines:) Or maybe I’m just too sensitive??

    • I think that’s a great idea – I feel bad “rejecting swaps” too!

  47. I dont know if I’ve overlooked it, but is there a place where I could filter users by their locations? Thx.

    • Once you click “Swap For It” on an item, when you are looking at the swappers who have listed the item, on the top right of that section, you can click “Closest To Me” and it will sort the listings by who is closest to your location. Hope that helps!

  48. Also wondering how to get on the wait list! 🙂

    • Just sent you an email!

  49. I would like to be added to the wait list. Please let me know what I need to do.

    • Just sent you an email!

  50. How do you get on the waiting list? (:
