An open mind leads to a greater variety of interesting offers. How can you let your fellow swappers know that you’re receptive to a range of barter deals? Keep your WishList long and diverse. A varied WishList lets others know that you’re flexible and open to new swaps. Think about items...


Why list your items and skills? Having more to barter with is like having more money to spend. Look at it this way: in a cash economy you slave away to earn every dollar you receive, but in a barter economy you simply list your swappable stuff. It's that easy. The more items you have to fill your barter...
