The Value of $8.90

$8.90 is our very reasonable, introductory rate to use our service to sell and swap your extra kids’ items! You receive the below “valet” treatment:

  • Shipping your items (up to 30 lbs!) to our logistics center, you can print the label at home or we can mail it to you
  • Sorting through and making sets out of your items
  • Photographing your items with our hi-tech set-up. Great pictures sell!
  • Categorizing and listing your items on Swap.com for you to sell and swap

Swap.com is useful for me as I have a lot of items that I know have value, but I don’t want to have a garage sale, donate them, or do eBay. It is really easy to just mail a box with lots of stuff and then sell and get other things through swapping.” Customer Sheila of Northville, MI in July 2013

Merchandising from A to Z

A few weeks back you caught a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes process at our logistics center. Now we dive even deeper into the first step of the process: Merchandising. Our fabulous staff greets your package upon arrival and inspects each item per our acceptance criteria. During our screening process we rank your items with the below conditions:

  • New/New with Tags: has original tags or in original and sealed packaging; never been used
  • Good: looks like you just pulled it out of your own closet, no signs of wear and tear
  • Fair: maybe a little bit more loved, small-minor stains, but still a great deal

Don’t be alarmed if we mark your items as FAIR. That’s still great in our book! We just want to make sure that we accurately depict the condition since it’s sometimes hard to see via the awesome pictures that are taken for our web site.

Quick Guide as to How to Send Items In

Merchandiser Q&A

What’s the funniest thing you have found in an incoming package?

It was a Ghost Writer game, and I used to love that show as a kid.

What’s your favorite part of your job?

Everyday is Christmas when we get to open new packages and create new sets.

Favorite fashion accessory?

Scarves. You can use them for so many different things!

Advice for customers?

Just make sure you are up-to-date on the acceptance criteria and make sure your items are freshly laundered. Clothes that are wrinkle-free take better photos.

Now send in kids’ summer clothes, kids’ movies and toys!

Swap.com has great items. It’s fun to shop and swap!
Morgan of Seattle, WA in May 2013We are receiving more and more customer packages and great feedback. Thank you! Half of the items customers send in trade very quickly and the rest little by little. At the moment, summer clothes in good, usable condition fly out! So look through your closets and drawers for shorts, skirts, dresses and swim wear. Also, recent and classic kids’ movies and fun toys sell well, too. Remember that you can also trade books and DVDs for all ages on the Valet Service.

I am an alumni of the original Swap.com. The Valet Service is user-friendly, has a seamless transaction process and they concentrate on customer assistance. The Valet Service is efficient and effective for those who do not have the time to run an online website and maintain frequent/constant user interaction. Swap.com Valet Service comes with my highest recommendation.
