Swop for Free

Check out the many ways to earn free credits. You'll never have to pay to use SwopLot again.







SwopLot Quick Start Guide

Please review the following quick start guide to see if your question is already answered. If it is not please contact us.

Is SwopLot Free? What are SwopLot Credits? What are Swop Meets?

SwopLot has no membership fees. There are no fees to swop items. Each time you list an item it costs one credit. Credits are only used to make a listing.

When you register through the main registration page you receive 1 free credit. This credit will allow you to list 1 item to trade. You earn more free credits as you use SwopLot.

If you registered through a gift card link or promotion you will have received more free credits.

Ways to earn free credit on SwopLot:

  1. Earn one credit for each person you invite, who joins SwopLot. Once logged in, you can do this from the invite page. For the time being, it is better to invite friends throught the gift card invitation page, because the people you invite will receive 10 credits from you instead of 1.
  2. Earn one credit each time you leave feedback for a user after making a Swop. This is done in My Swops.
  3. Earn one credit for uploading a photo to your profile from the My Account page.
  4. Earn one credit each time you write a story after making a Swop. This is done in My Swops.
Ofcourse, you can always buy credit... but we like to promote active membership so we've come up with all these ways to earn free credit, so that you'll never have to pay to use SwopLot, if you don't want to.

It is also free to set up a SwopMeet for your local community or organization.

We do not make money from our users. If you want to support us, please visit our sponsors, by clicking the Google ads on our listing pages.

From the Offers Outbox you have a link to Revoke an offer. All offers that have not yet been accepted may be revoked at anytime. Because you may only offer a listing to one person at a time. This revoke feature allows you to revoke an offer that you have made so that you can re-offer your listing. Once an offer has been "Accepted" it becomes a "Swop", and can no longer be revoked.
