Are there any charges?
SwapMyGames is a totally free service; there are no fees at all! It's a community-based website that brings gamers together for the purpose of free game exchange. If local exchange is not available, the only possible cost to you, our user, is shipping of the games. We will always attempt to find a member to trade with locally so that you don't have to worry about postage altogether. We make it free and simple!
What can I receive for my game?
The trading happens on one-for-one basis (one game in exchange for another). You can receive a brand new game for a 10 year old game that you own, because you will find that many of our members don't expect to receive games of the same dollar value. It's a matter of taste and gaming preference so no old or new game is considered good or bad; they are all desired by one or another gamer. Additionally, you can often find games on the website that are no longer available in stores and are not otherwise accessible.
How simple is it to use SwapMyGames?
Not only is registration quick, simple, and free but the website itself is user-friendly and easy to navigate. Adding a game is very simple. All you need to do is enter the UPC code from the back of the cover and SwapMyGames will get the rest of the information (title, images, description, and even reviews).
SwapMyGames is for anyone who has a game to trade, be it a die-hard gamer or parents trading games for their kids. Whether you are computer savvy or not, you will find SwapMyGames easy and fun to use.
When are the shipping charges if I can't find a local trade option?
We recommend using the cheapest shipping service that provides a tracking number (for user safety), through your local post office. We know that in the US the cheapest shipping service that provides tracking confirmation is USPS fist class mail, which costs approximately $2.50. While in Canada, shipping charges will vary between $0.54 to $1.10 without a tracking number. Don't forget to check if local trade options are available for a quicker trade.
