We believe simplicity is the key. So we have developed two easy membership options.
* Family Membership: UNLIMITED lodgments for only $15 (valid for 12 months)
* Quick Pack: 3 lodgments for $3
Once you realise how easy it is, clothing, textbooks, sports equiptment, normally Family Memberships are the most economical way to go. To ensure we can provide a powerful search function, only one item may be listed per lodgedment. Multiple sizes for the exact same product is acceptable under one lodgement.
It is important that your classify your goods in terms of 'condition' or fitness to perform against what is regarded 'as new'.
We have provided a guide to the 3 levels of 'condition' which best describes your product.
- Excellent Condition: 60-80% of new price
- Good Condition: 40-60% of new price
- Fair Condition: 20-40% of new price
Classifications require a common sense approach.
IMPORTANT NOTE; WE WOULD ASK SELLERS NOT TO LIST ANY ITEMS WHICH ARE TORN, STAINED OR WHERE HOLES ARE PRESENT. EQUALLY BUYERS ARE ASKED NOT TO PURCHASE CLOTHING IN THIS STATE.
Whilst our site attracts a wide and varied demographic, it's always important to give your lodgments every chance of selling by advising your friends on Facebook.
In each individual product listing you'll see has a link "TELL YOUR FRIENDS - LIKE LISTING ON FACEBOOK". This is a fantastic and easy way to extend your Uniform Swap Shop lodgments far and wide.
