This site is an online swapping service where you can access details about unwanted or surplus comics and view requests for wanted comics from other collectors.
This site is a complete swap site that allows you to swap comics with, or sell comics to, other internet users. It allows you to search or browse for specific comics offered for swap or sale.
Search/browse through the extensive list of comic categories, find comics that may be useful for you, make offers, wait for the other party to respond by accepting or rejecting your offer, add comments, swap and enjoy!
Thus with the minimum effort, you can swap, sell or buy comics from other people via the internet.
You may have comics in your collection which you no longer need; maybe they are 'doubles' or you have finished reading them and wish to exchange them for others. There may be somebody who is in need of them. This site is useful for swapping comics you don't want, or simply sell it to someone who does want it!
You are not committed to anything until both you and a second party (ie the other swapper/buyer) agree to proceed with the deal - you can withdraw an item at any time right up to this point without obligation or commitment.
Why Register with this site?
In order to sell and leave postings we need you to complete the short registration form. The information collected by this site will solely be used for activities that accommodate the swapping, bartering or sale of comics between users of the site.
Whilst you can search and browse without registering, if you want to swap, buy or sell, you will need to register.
In order to create a listing, you must first be a registered user. After you register and log in, you will notice Add Comic For Sale/ Add Comic For Swap/ Add Comic To Wish List links in the 'My Stuff' section. Click on the appropriate link and enter all the information to create your listing.
What types of files can I upload as an image for my listing?
We recommend uploading a gif or a jpeg when posting a picture. These file types are usually small and will work with our system quite well.
Do I have any obligations?
Your obligations are set out in the site's Terms and Conditions which you have read as part of your registration.
In brief, the items offered must be legal and non-offensive to even a small number of people, and must be your property to offer.
You have no obligation to complete a swap or sale unless both you and another party have confirmed you want to go ahead with the deal, at which point you both MUST proceed. Otherwise, you can withdraw from a deal at any time up to this point.
Whether you agree to a swap offered is entirely up to you. Do bear in mind though that often a comic listed will be a 'double'. This means the person listing it has two (or more) copies of this comic, and the one listed for swap will likely be the poorer quality copy. You will also likely be swapping on the same basis. Don't expect Mint / Near Mint copies therefore and use the value provided as a guide only.
Do you really want to turn down a swap for a comic you want because it is valued at £1.50 and the other party wants one of yours you valued at £2.00? Isn't it better to pass on the comic and be reassured you have helped a fellow collector, in the same way they have helped you?
Please remember though, that all swaps are conducted at your risk. Make sure you study the listing for the item to make sure you are happy with what you will receive.
Swapsies can not be held accountable for any swap or sale and do not provide an arbitration service.
In order to contact a user about an item, you must first be a registered user. After you register and log in, select the item you are interested in and click on it. You will then notice a link in the listing that says "Make Offer" Click on this link, enter the details of your offer and the comments/message to the user. Please note that making an offer is the first step to go ahead with the deal.
When both the parties confirm they are happy with the swap/sale, they should make contact, either using the inbuilt messaging system, or via the other party's email address to exchange delivery addresses and ship the comics. This step takes place outside of the Swapsies system.
We are proud to have a strict policy against unsolicited bulk e-mail and against sharing e-mail addresses with third parties.
We won't seel or give away your email address to anyone. It is used solely for notifying you of events that take place on the Swapsies site and for other parties to make contact with you to obtain delivery details for swaps / sales.
