1. Remember, people are going to be offering you a trade based on the picture quality.

 
  • Make sure item(s) is/are clean before taking the picture.
  • Post only good clear pictures of the item(s).
  • Post pictures of any damage on the item(s).

2. Be detailed in your description to avoid tons of questions.

 
  • Provide dimensions of the item(s).
  • Give an accurate description of condition.
  • At BarterOnly.com we don’t limit how much you can write on the description. Let your audience be able to get a clear mental picture of what you are posting.

3. Be creative on your offers and be open minded on offers to you.

 
  • You don’t always have to do a 1 for 1 trade. Bundle items! With BarterOnly.com you can offer 1,2,3 or more items for 1,2,3 or more of their items. You can trade 4 of your items for 2 of theirs!
  • Bring an extra item to the exchange in case that person wants to back out. This item is called a “boot”. Have that item just in case so you haven’t wasted your time.
  • Match item(s) you are offering to be as close as possible to what the other individual is wanting.

4. Verify the people you are trading with:

 
  • Get a telephone number
  • Get a full name
  • If possible, get their address

5. Meet in a public place to make an exchange.

 
  • Control the environment where you meet by you determining the location.
  • Avoid meeting at your residence or theirs.

6. Never send money or credit card information to the other person.

 
  • Avoid bringing cash to a meeting.
  • In today’s advanced technology, use a smart phone at exchange location to send cash via PayPal if you are bringing cash to equalize the trade.
  • If receiving money, confirm transaction completion prior to finalizing exchange.

7. Never allow excuses like “I forgot the title at home, can I just mail it to you?” Excuses like these are good indicators that the item may be stolen.

 
  • Do not make the exchange until the item is complete with all required documentation.
  • If trading for a valuable item, get the VIN or serial number and go to the police department to have the number checked. The police department will run it for free to check if the item is reported stolen.
  • Verify the VIN or serial number on the item with the one the person whom you traded with gave you the correct item. If the number is incorrect, postpone the trade until you have verified with your local police department.

8. Never go to a meeting alone.

 
  • There is less of a chance of robbery or theft if there are witnesses
  • If you go to a meeting alone, let people know where you are going and check in with them periodically.
  • If possible, call them and keep your telephone on in a shirt pocket so that they can hear what is going on.
  • When you pull up, read off the license plate of the vehicle and tell them the make, model and color of the vehicle.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. Scan around you to make sure no one is walking up.

9. Never trade an item that requires giving a stranger your Social Security number, Date of Birth and/or banking information.
 

10. Examine the item for completeness and accuracy as described. Test the item’s working condition.
 

11. Enjoy trading and make sure you rate the person via BarterOnly.com on the trade to help others in the future to trade with that individual.
