Fees for sellers

Shipping in items to Swap.com ("Inbound Service Fee").

  • Example: $11.90 for label only and $14.90 for label and shipping materials.  The labels will be prepaid, and the fees will be deducted from your sales payout.  To review these details access your account on www.swap.com:

        -  Click on "My Account" 

        -  Click on "My Info"

        -  Click on "My Payout"

       NOTE:  For specific details you may click each individual payout.  (Your inbound fees will be                        noted in red).  

  • Note: Over-sized shipments will NOT be accepted, and may suspend a seller's ability to continue sending in further shipments.  An additional fee will be applied to boxes that are found to not fit the specified dimensions, and weigh over 50 pounds.  The largest box accepted at Swap.com is 20"x20"x17".  The additional fee has been implemented to ensure that our staff does not lift extremely heavy boxes and minimize the risk of boxes breaking, in shipping (we have seen too many large boxes break, and damage items).
  • Selling fee: 30% of sales price + $1.50 per item
    Example: $4.50 fee for a sales price of $10 (you get $5.50)
  • Non-Accepted items can be shipped home for a separate outbound fee of $4.99. 
    Note: If the return shipment of rejected items exceeds 20 pounds in weight, the return shipment fee that Swap.com incurs will need to be paid in full; in advance by the Seller (valid only if Seller wants to get the rejected items back).
