mystampworld includes Swap Shop which is a marketplace where you can exchange philatelic items with like-minded members without needing money to get what you want.
How It Works
→ You post an item that you would like to swap, stating it's approximate worth (in US dollars) and indicate the type of item(s) you would want in return.
→ Another member (we'll call the swapper) makes an offer suggesting their item(s) in the Swap Shop that they would like to exchange for it.
→ You can either accept or reject the offer.
→ You both must confirm that the item(s) have been received before the swap is flagged as complete.
→ Either of you can cancel the transaction before it is complete.
