Swap and Trade Services for Goods
Q. Can I trade services for goods and vice versa?
A. Yes! The great thing about Fairly Exchanged is our system makes it easy to find a match and negotiate a deal, regardless of whether you want to trade unwanted gifts for practical services, the other way round, or a combination of both.
Q. Can I trade an ongoing service?
A. Yes, it’s possible to set your service up on Fairly Exchanged as a weekly, monthly or a one-off service. This works best if two people agree on the same schedule for swapping their time and skills.
Q. How can I help the right people find my listing?
A. Fairly Exchanged allows you to customise your product or service listing to make sure the right people are able to find you and contact you. The system lets you set a location, so if your service is only relevant or available to local people, they’ll be the ones that find you. You can also add category tags to make it even easier!
Q. Why are the monetary values there?
A. Even though we’re operating a barter exchange system to swap items rather than sell them, we have the option for you to set a value for your service or item. This just makes it easier and quicker to find a fair swap and make comparisons. It can be useful, but it’s not essential.
Q. How do I go ahead and swap?
A. Once you’ve found your ideal exchange, you can click “Make an Offer” to get in touch with the person who posted it. From there, simply negotiate your perfect deal and agree to make the swap! If you need any further help, simply let us know.
