HOW OUR SWAP EVENTS WORK

 


When we swap offline, it's always with a unique Swap Society twist. We use our points system at clothing swap events too, so you get equal value for what you bring in. Plus, any leftover points can be used on our site later.

Bring 5* items to swap and get equal value for your clothes! We will carefully inspect your items, and our proprietary algorithm will assign a point value to each accepted item. You can “spend” your points on new-to-you items at the swap. Points are how we keep things fair and make sure that you get equal value for what you bring in. Points are based on a few key metrics including desirability, seasonality, condition, inventory and retail value. 


WHAT WE ACCEPT**

Women's clothes, handbags, shoes and fashion jewelry (a.k.a. costume jewelryno fine jewelry.)

WHAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT
For health and safety reasons we do not accept Women's swimwear, panties or hosiery.​​​​​​

*If you want to swap more than 5 items, you are welcome to drop them off to Swap Society at the event for use on swapsociety.co later.
**Our events run a little differently than our regular online service. You can swap shoes and handbags at our events. There's no per-item fee, and you can spend your points freely without any point range limits. Please note that items brought to our swap events are not returnable.
