1. Your SWAPD Account and Registration

If you create an account on the Website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account. You must immediately notify SWAPD staff of any unauthorized uses of your account or any other breaches of security.

Members are directly responsible for the actions of the invited party, so make sure to invite people who are credible and trustworthy.

1A. User/Member Badges.

SWAPD offers a member trust system by awarding user badges. Badges on SWAPD reinforce positive user behavior and facilitates “learning by doing.”

There are two ways to receive a badge:

  • Manually granted by an administrative user.
  • Automatically granted by the system.

The most important badges to look for are Positive/Negative Transaction badges. A user with a high count of positive badges will most likely provide better quality items vs. a member with more negative badges. Positive/negative badges can only be awarded manually by site admins. Other badges are awarded automatically, based on the actions you take on our platform (higher post count/multiple likes/etc.)

1B. Premium memberships.

SWAPD Premium Membership is a paid subscription offered to regular members with trust lever equal or higher than level two. For a full list of Premium Membership features, click here.

Each transaction (Checkout Ticket) serves as a legally binding contract between the buyer and seller.
  • All items listed/sold within SWAPD have to meet our fan/follower/subscriber minimum. We currently have a 20,000 fan/follower limit for all platforms except YouTube. Currently, our YouTube subscriber limit is set at 10,000. Verified (blue/grey badge) accounts are an exception, as they don’t require any followers/fans at all.
  • Unless otherwise specified inside category rules, all transactions have to be conducted via the SWAPD checkout page located at the following URL: https://checkout.swapd.co/.
