If you follow me on Facebook, you have probably seen me post about Swapdom. If you haven’t had a chance to check them out, the basics of what they do is helping facilitate swapping items you don’t want anymore for something someone else doesn’t want anymore. But that is a very oversimplified analysis of what they do. According to their website here is how it works:
We use a special algorithm to make swapping ultra easy and effective by organizing multi-person swaps.
In traditional swaps, A might want something C has, but C is not interested in A’s items; they want something B has, so no swap is made. Swapdom connects A to B to C (and to D, E, F, G … if needed) and loops it back to A, so that everyone gets what they want. All you have to do is tell us what you’d offer for your requested item and box up your item when we find a swap. Couldn’t get any easier, really!
Being the deal lover I am, I can’t resist the opportunity to swap something I have no use for something new and fabulous. But that’s not the only perks they have. Now Swapdom rewards you just for using their site. Earn gift cards to places like Etsy and Amazon, just for doing things like uploading items to trade and referring people. To see a complete list of potential rewards you can check them out here.
This is really a great thing for me. I always have a lot of inventory left that I wasn’t able to sell on eBay or at my store on Store Envy. I have recently complete my own first swap. I wanted to share with all of you the low down on what happened. The swap I was in was between 15 different people.
So here is what I had to trade:
This was for me just left over inventory. It was brand new, but I really didn’t have a use for it.
And here is what I got:
According to the person I got them from, they had only been worn once. They were in fantastic shape when I got them. They were a little slow on shipping them out, but it wasn’t a huge problem. I feel like I got a fantastic deal.
The only thing that would make Swapdom better is you. And by that I mean all of you plus size ladies. There are quite a few plus size bloggers and handful of other plus sized ladies on there already, but there still isn’t the variety there is with the misses sized clothes. The only way that will change is if you ladies join. On this site, we are the ones that control what is available. So please join and help make this a great site to find plus size clothes. I know everyone has at least one item in their closet they no longer wear. You can also trade for accessories, and kids clothes too.
If you would like to see what I have available to trade for, you can see that here. I have been adding a couple of new things almost daily. So if you don’t see what you want now, it might be there the next day. Since a lot of my items are from leftover inventory, that means 1. that most of it is new, and 2. I have a variety of sized available. The few things that are my personal items are all things that are gently used, worn only once or twice. So join up ladies and lets get swapping.
