How to use the swap shop

Postby rdearman » Tue Apr 06, 2021 2:04 pm

This area is for members who would like to swap physical materials with other members. For example, member A has 2 old French grammar books they no longer want, but want to find a beginners book for Modern Greek. Member B has modern Greek books but wants French Grammar.

In this area member A has listed his unwanted materials under the topic:
MemberA's List [French, Italian, Manx]
and inside of the thread they list all the books, etc with ISBN numbers.

Member B has a topic also
MemberB's List [Modern Greek, Latin, English]

Member A sends and message to Member B, and they agree a swap. Both members edit their posts to remove the material they will be swapping, and post their stuff to each other.

For safety, folks in the USA can rent a box at the post office for a reasonable cost. When I sold used books through Amazon and eBay, I did this with no problems. I suppose some other countries offer this option, too.
