I'm so glad that I was referred to this site! I LOVE it! I have sold so many items that my walk in closet I can actually "WALK" in. Best of all, the money is directly sent to my account. And and and, you can return anything for FREE! You just get a RMA label online, print and take to post office. BAM!
I have been shopping at swap.com for awhile now. I love the clothes and if they don't fit I have easily returned them. They make it all so easy!! Everything I had received has been in excellent shape or new! I check this site at least once a week and love when people complement what I am wearing and I can tell them how much I payed for it.
Swap has changed my life. Most likely, I will primarily do all of my shopping on Swap. Maybe 10% chance of another shopping method. However, it's awesome that I can submit clothing to swap and find great pieces of clothing. I have received incredible pieces and many times they are new with tags. Thank you, Swap! I'm a stroke survivor who lives on disability and you have made me look like a million bucks!
I am seeing more posts that are unhappy with the selling process than the buying. I tend to agree. I have sent several boxes to swap since June & have yet to make a profit. The shipping fees & selling fees eat into any profits. The inspection process is inconsistent & I have had brand new items marked as fair condition. So far not impressed with the selling process on swap. & disappointed that I have not seen any profit since June that wasn't eaten up by shipping & fees.
I order 4 items from Swap for the first time. Each item was exactly how they were shown in the photos and condition. I am very impressed with Swap. I have told friends and family about the success I have had. Keep up the great swapping.
Took a month for items to be listed, I sent numerous emails asking when items would be listed. Suggested listing prices was extremely too low for name brand items such as Eddie Bauer,Clarks,Ann Taylor Loft,Gap. Pictures are not as good as i can take and post on EBay.Two items have been listed with the incorrect size. I wished I had just listed clothing and shoes on ebay. I am an experienced seller on ebay but sell antique and vintage items mostly. Next time i will make the effort and sell clothing items on ebay,not happy with Swap.com.
Quality products, great prices, and fast shipping.each item was indivisible wrapped & new with tags,& upscale items,which I can't not afford any longer,limited income ,Swap has made me one happy customer,along with my husband ,We will be shopping again.
thank you so very much ,Mre geri Hocott
I found myself in need of preemie size girl clothes for my granddaughter born 6 weeks early. Most of the stores around me that carry them are very expensive, even consignment or second-hand. My sister mentioned swap.com to me. She said she uses it to buy a lot of clothes for her daughter. I was very impressed with the low prices, and the fact shipping was free was a bonus! I expected to wait a couple weeks for the items to come, but they showed up in about 5 business days, which made me very happy. The clothes were as close to new as gently used can be, and my daughter in law is very happy to have some outfits for our little angel and was happy to know she can get more (and so can I) at such a discount for such nice quality!
So far I've ordered 3 times, each time a relatively large order. I ordered uniforms for my 3 kids for about 65$. I got each of them pants, a sweater, a skirt, a jumper and a polo shirt. 65$ would barely cover one kid if I'd had to buy them new, and I was able to get most of the items new and like new. I've bought all of our winter gear from swap.com and been overall pretty pleased with what I've gotten. I got very nice higher end and name brand items for less than shopping at walmart, plus I feel better about giving my money to a smaller company over a major corporation. My only gripe really would be quality classifications. Swap.com is very clear that they don't sell items that are stained or have holes, but I paid 4-6$ for sweaters listed in good condition that were actually extremely faded from washing, and the pictures don't always reflect signs of wear accurately. I was a little miffed about a few of the items that came in being considerably more worn than the pictures show, but overall, I've saved a ton of money, and I'm giving older clothes new life rather than wasting resources buying new.
I'm sending a box of clothes in soon, and I expect it will take some time processing. As a veteran of selling online, I understand how long it really takes to create each listing. I could spend around 8 hours for maybe 10 listings, between taking photos and writing the descriptions. It's a lot of work, and I don't really have that kind of time anymore. I can only imagine how much work these people are putting in with the volume of boxes they've been getting. I think the company is still in the early stages of development, and appears to be growing rapidly, so I can imagine they are probably experiencing quite a bit of chaos. I'm seeing a lot of unsatisfied sellers, which makes me a bit wary, but I'm optimistic about this company, so fingers crossed!!
This isn't a place to make fair money if you are selling your items. The shipping fees and selling fees knock down any profit, and the selection process is arbitrary and unpredictable. I've sent in new items and they mark the condition as fair. They've also lost my items I've sent in, and I have yet to have any emails returned from their customer service. Go local - this isn't worth your time or the stress.
Swap.com is great for the buyer but bad for the seller. When they advertise $150.00 profit per box they are talking about for themselves - not the seller. I have sold many items and had 3 payouts @ $0.00 each. It takes them forever to process a box. By the time they are ready for you to price - the clothes you sent are out of season. They reject brand new name brand items and give you a bogus reason. They had put someone elses items on my acccount to price and some were rejected. I had to tell them 3 times they weren't my items. Then a month later they were back on and I was informed my rejection rate was 11%. But when I had a problem as a buyer it was corrected the first time. None of my items are old enough for sure sell but I pretty much know what is going to happen. They want to buy your stuff dirt cheap and give you $0.00 payouts.They will keep treating sellers this way until their stock diminishes and they need people to send in items.
I found a lot of really nice pieces in like new condition for very affordable prices. For what I might have paid for one nice outfit, I got 8 items. I love to be able to shop this way because it not only saves me money but it's an easy and very inexpensive way to be earth-friendly. It's a win-win!
I found Swap.com by accident - and I'm glad I did. I've ordered from them twice so far, and every item was in like-new condition, even though the description for most was listed as "fair". I couldn't find flaws or stains on any item; after laundering, everything looked brand new! Every item was exactly what I expected, what I'd ordered. Prices are very reasonable and my order arrived in good time.
