More Swap Site Updates!
We’re still working on a lot of your suggestions for improving the swap site, but I thought I’d do a quick post on some changes we made today.
The first change is now when you are listing an item you can add a link to the product if you want. That way when someone else is considering the item, they can go check it out (on Sephora for example), and get all the extra information they might be interested in. When you’ve listed an item with a product link it will look like this:
Clicking “Learn More about …” will open a new window with the product detail information. This isn’t a required step, but if you have the time to do it I think it will make the listings more helpful!
Also, based on the comments from the last update post, we’ve added an expiration for swap requests. I hope the logic decided on is a good balance that will work for everyone, but if you have any concerns please let me know!
How it works: Swap requests will expire after 10 days if no action is taken. (If you comment on a swap request, the 10 day counter will restart).
(In the email you get about a swap request, we also let you know when the swap request expires).
I’m hoping this gives everyone enough time to review swaps, but also helps clear out old swap requests. (If you aren’t sure about a swap, and don’t want it to expire in ten days, just comment on the swap letting the other swapper know! Any comment will keep the swap from expiring for another 10 days).
Let me know what you think about these changes, and if you have any questions or additional feedback. Hopefully we’ll have another update for you soon!
