Swap.com has helped our members save nearly $13 million by swapping for items instead of purchasing them new. We have expanded rapidly in the last year including the introduction of Swap.com Mobile, Swap Local and Swap Events, helping us to expand in many ways in the U.S., and now abroad. Today we are on our way to building the “world’s largest swap marketplace” thanks to all of you swapping with us both online and offline.
So when you take a step back and think about it: swapping a book with your neighbor or online with a swapper across the country are essentially the same thing. We believe Swap.com can play a vital role in enabling both of these kinds of swaps, but in order to do so we can not charge transaction fees for swapping because it is not the way it naturally works. Swapping is a social activity where the only “cost” associated is the transfer of an item that was once in your possession to another. Swapping is essentially meant to be free, so swapping on Swap.com will be free from now on.
And we’re hoping that making swapping free on Swap.com will help you save even more money! We want to continue to expand rapidly, because the more swappers that are part of our community the better the swap opportunities we can create for everyone!
Like what you hear? Invite your friends and family to join the swapping movement! Because with swapping, the more the merrier! Every friend you invite who signs up for a Swap.com account will count towards free Swap.com shipping labels for you (5 friend sign-ups = 1 free mailing label).
