Want to know MORE? ....Okay then:

The WL-Multiples FULL version

PLEASE READ EVERYTHING BELOW... before listing or ordering in the WishList Multiple thread.

Rules and instructions for Senders and Receivers:

****Wishlist Multiples**** will be a monthly topic located in the CD Bazaar, around the 1st day of each month.

Items remaining from the previous month can be moved over to the new monthly topic, but will be the responsibility of the offering member.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Happily, the SwapaCD Team has agreed to allow members here at SwapaCD the opportunity to trade this way, and has taken time to work with us to make it work well and fairly.  

Both senders and receivers have certain responsibilities and obligations with this kind of trading, so read everything, and be on your very best swapping behavior to make it fun and fair for everybody.  It's a great feature! (You may know WL Multiples from the other two Swapa sites, so please do comment if you can help out with explaining.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

****Wishist Mulitples**** topic is the only area where wishlist multiples may be offered.

Offerings and practices must adhere to these rules:

I. For the Sending/Offering Member:

TRADES MUST GO THROUGH THE SWAPACD SYSTEM. All Transactions that take place in this topic MUST have a SwapaCD "footprint", so that transaction fees remain intact. To create this footprint, the Sender must post all Wishlisted Mulitple CDs directly to the Receiving member's Wish List, which will trigger a "transaction" in the system. Instructions for posting directly to a member's Wish List are here: Link

"Buddying" credits for items in this topic is not allowed, nor any practice that would cause or create the bypassing of SwapaCD transaction fees.

MAKE SURE YOU ARE LISTING THE CORRECT VERSION: All CDs listed MUST have an accompanying UPC or Link to SwapaCD to verify their Wish List status.

Recommended practice in your listings (not mandatory): Please note the number of wishers for an item, which may  increases your requests because other members will know how swappable an item will be.

Unpostable or Damaged Wish Listed items may NOT be posted in this topic. The only exception is specified below in Sets.

All CDs offered in the Wishlist Multiples topic, unless noted by Sender in the listing, must contain the highest level of inclusion of artwork. This means Disc, Front and Back inserts.

If you are offering Disc-only, Disc w/Back Insert, or Disc w/Front insert, you must specify this in your post. This gives members the opportunity to order or not order based on particulars and preferences.

You may not request more than the SwapaCD *price* (1 credit per disc).

You may include a sending requirement, since the purpose of this topic is to allow members to send out multiple items to save on postage. Example: "I am wanting to send out multiple CDs to save on postage", or " 2 or more items please".

To this end, you may allow members to combine Wish Listed items in this topic with CDs from your Tower in the interest of helping them meet your multiple sending requirement (i.e. "I am wanting to send out packages of 3 or more" ). However, you are NOT allowed to place requirements on your Wish List Multiples CD orders in any other way. Example: You may not require orders from your regular tower. You may only offer it as an option to help members meet your multiple sending requirements, in the event they cannot find enough Wish Listed Multiples in your post to satisfy that requirement.

Sets: If you have a complete set of CDs where some are WL'd and some are not, you may offer a deal on them in the interest of wanting to keep the set together. You MUST state which are and are not WL'ed.

*Sets* is also the *only* exception where you can offer an unpostable or ever-so-slightly damaged CD. If you have a Set of 7 CDs that are WL'd and 1 of them is damaged slightly.....you can offer the set, but the damaged disc must be clearly described a such in detail. If there is more than one damaged disc, then that must also be noted.

Please do not list only 1 item. This topic is for the purpose of saving money on postage by sending out multiples. And obviously, if your sending requirement asks members to order 3 or more items, then you need to have at least that many items on your list. Do not include statements like "first to PM me gets them". This constitutes placing further requirements on receivers that is not in keeping with the wishlist multiples purpose.

Wish List Multiples is a special privilege and only applies to this topic. Practices here do not carry over to your normal SwapCD account, i.e, You may not require multiple orders on your regular account and if you receive a FIFO order for a CD you must fulfill it as usual.

II. For the Receiving/Ordering Member:

The Sender will post CDs directly to your Wish List so that SwapaCD transaction fees can be applied.

Certain procedures must be in place to ensure that your order goes through seamlessly. Please make sure of the following:

That your Settings (under Privacy Controls) allows your Wish List to be public. Otherwise, the Sender will not be able to post directly to your Wish List. That you have the specific Wishlisted items you are requesting on Auto Request. That you have the correct corresponding UPC of the item you are requesting, so that the sending member can easily find it to post directly to your Wish List. That if your Tower is on vacation, you have the items you are requesting on Auto Request See: How does the Vacation Hold affect My Wish List? Link

That you have sufficient SwapaCD Money to cover each Wishlist Mulitple disc you are requesting. SwapaCD transaction fees must be observed and will apply to each CD you request. (If you are requesting 4 items, you need to have 4 x $0.49 = $1.96 in your account, etc.). If a CD is a set, and has 2 discs in it, you still only pay just one transaction fee of $0.49) That you have sufficient amount of Credits for the number of CDs you are ordering. There is nothing more frustrating for a sender than to try to post to your Wishlist and not have the order go through, and then have to fire off multiple PMs back and forth to correct the situation. You may not offer more than the SwapaCD *price* (1 credit = 1 disc, 2 credits = 2 discs)

III. Organization / Updating posts for Senders:

The topic can quickly become unweildy and cluttered, so please observe the following:

When some of the CDs in your post are taken, return and remove those items using the Edit function. You may use the strike-through tool for pending items, and then delete them entirely once they are sent. When all of your CDs are taken, please return to your post and delete ALL remaining information. If you need to add to your list as the month progresses, please return to your original post, and EDIT it, with your additions. In other words, each member should only have one post with their listings. This allows others to browse thru the Wishlist Multiples topic and see each member's offerings all in one post. PLEASE keep your posts updated and current. It is very frustrating for members to read through lists and find a CD they want, only to find out it is no longer available because you forgot to delete it from your posting.

IV. Organization / Updating posts for Receivers:

If you make a post in this topic, i.e. that you are PMing a request or listing titles you want, PLEASE return to your post and DELETE ALL information after CDs are posted to you.

Thank you and let the Wishlist Multiples BEGIN!

Hello friendly traders! TIME FOR.....

***** The October 2017 Wishlist Multiples Thread *********

Send a bunch of discs to one happy trader...at one address!

WL Multiples October 2017 Edition:

Why trade using WL Multiples??

SENDERS: Send multiple items to one requester's address and SAVE on postage.  Post 'em here.  READ ON REQUESTERS:  Find out about great items for trade right here and add the items you see in this thread to your wishlist.  It's a good chance you'll get them.  Thanks to the SwapaCD ability for senders to post items to your list directly, you can end up first in line, even for Wishlisted items. It's how SwapaCD works.

How to do it, the short version:

SENDERS: You list your postable CDs here in this thread: anything, even wishlisted items. Don't actually "post" them yet.  Just list them here, and ask requesters to request some minumum number of discs from your list. (2 or 3 discs minimum is common.)  REQUESTERS: Add the titles you want to your wishlist; PM the Sender and comment in this thread.  SENDERS: To make sure your requester gets the items, you will POST THEM DIRECTLY to your requester's wishlist.  This is a normal SwapaCD  thing to do. Find out how (it's easy): Link

The rules, short version:

CDs should be POSTABLE CDs should GO THROUGH THE SwapaCD system (that is, no buddying credits or PMs to make deals) CDs should be offered at the regular SwapaCD "price": one disc=one credit CDs should be the versions requesters expect them to be.  Each CD listed should include a link, or UPC of the exact version you are offering.  Missing artwork should be made clear to requesters. 

Want to list some additional info to tempt your requester to take an additional disc or two? Use this cool WL Multiple lingo:

"Zero copy" CDs are titles that are not currently posted.  "Only copy" CDs are titles that represent only copy posted.  

Questions? Go read the whole rules 'n' stuff, below, or feel free to ask your questions here and we'll do our best to explain.

Have fun!

Well, well, well.  It's been quite a long time since I offered up a few magical mystery boxes for your trading pleasure... and I must say, it's HIGH TIME!

What's that? You have no idea what I'm talking about??  

Well, step right up!  You're about to read descriptions for sets of CDs on a theme.  Each one is bargain priced, and full of oooooeeeee ....mystery!

Let's answer a few Mystery Box questions:

Q: Are these are regular ordinary high-priced box sets from the store?  Q: Are they shrink-wrapped wish-list items?   Q: Are they rare, collectable, understandably-expensive items?

 A. No, no, and...well, why lie: probably not. But maybe!

Q: Will you know what's in them? A: Only if you request one!

Maybe you'll get a set of discs by a single artist...maybe an array of CDs that cover a kind of music, an era, or a little-known label.

Maybe you'll get a whole world of so-called music on some bizarre theme or other that just struck me one day

.......WHO KNOWS...... 

So here goes.  Read carefully, decide if you'd like to TAKE A CHANCE on a MYSTERY BOX, and PM me.  Fun!

------------------------------------------

ICBERRY'S Hot Horns, Fat Tubas and Slithery Clarinets Balkan Tango Made-Up Box Set Special #1

Ai, mi Gitana! More than a few brilliant buskers caught a record contract by way of a hot session in the subway stations of Paris, Spain and Vale Marea Romania, and here's the evidence. Tango, Flamenco and tipsy Balkan horns make for a fantastic combination playlist. Little-known fact: Astor Piazzola's music can fill a concert hall in Japan!

Contains (4) discs with ALL ART. 3 credits ------------------------------------------

ICBERRY'S Million-Dollar Babies in a Five-&-Ten-Cent Store Shimmy-Dance Made-Up Box Set Special #2

The 1920s and 1930s were a rich time for popular music. With this special vintage-era pop-music box set, you get Original Victor Recordings by Fannie Brice, Beatrice Lillie, Cole Porter, Fred Astaire and more! What kind of more? How about Busby Berkeley? How about a VERY snappy collection of Vocal Rags? And -- well, I wasn't going to tell you but one of these discs involves..well: Twiggy. THE Twiggy. Now how can you resist THAT?

Contains (4) discs; art varies. 2 credits ------------------------------------------

ICBERRY'S Deeply Forested Enigma Made-Up Box Set Special #3 TRADED

If you know the names of Michael Cretu (Enigma) and Michel Sanchez (Deep Forest) -- both highly influential world-music-collage masters, you will be very interested in this box set collection that includes their side-projects and solo endeavours and music influenced by each of them. Of special note is Cretu's protegee, an a remarkable vocalist who is an African Griot.

Contains (4) discs; art varies. 2 credits ------------------------------------------

I'm available for questions via PM...take a chance.. and Enjoy!

Hi all, 

Wishlist multiples is a great way to share a bunch of items with a single trader and save postage by sending them to a single address... and it's SwapaCD-approved!

Traders have taken turns publishing this monthly thread since it started.  I am looking for someone to take over from me as I took over from someone before me, to keep it going.

Would you be willing to take over this easy task? It provides a nice service for your fellow traders. Please PM me.  My last Wishlist Multiples Thread post will be 1 October 2017.  Thank you!

ICBERRY

Tracy, great post..and goes to show that much more can be found in the SACD database than you'd think from trying to use UPCs alone.  Also, that was nice of you to locate the actual listings --! 

If I can just piggy-back on Vicky's post (and Tracy's response) --  the ASIN thing is a great but little-known (maybe) SACD seach trick.  Very often the Amazon ASIN number can be plugged into the keyword field of an Advanced Search and PRESTO: a listing appears for many formerly "unknown" items.   You'd be amazed what you can locate and list with it --!

cc'ing a post re the other DW disc, Rosemary -- pardon the dupication but I hope it helps you get Mr. Yoakum off to a new home..and maybe helps a few other folks who might not realize....

Disc has no UPC? -- not a problem.  

Make sure the Title, Artist,  Tracks and number of discs match up -- and you're good to list it.  You can read the SACD "what's required"  in the Help Center under Posting CDs>How to Post A CD:

[quote] All CDs, including Promotional or Advanced copies, must match the Title, Artist, Track Listing, and Disc Count exactly. [/quote]

see also "Posting by Title and Artist (right of page)"

There's no requirement that the UPC has to match or that one even has to be listed on the disc.  

NOTE: Be a little careful about not choosing a "matching" listing that has something extra special about it (like an audiophile version or something with an 80 page booklet) -- unless that's what you actually have.

Happy trading!

Just wondering, Paste fans -- if they issued UPCs with their discs?  Are any available from within the system?  It's a great idea to post this message here because people do tend to accumulate discs they don't know how to list, and other fans out there (hi Cassie!) are bound to sit up and take notice. Good luck!

You may include a sending requirement, since the purpose of this topic is to allow members to send out multiple items to save on postage. Example: "I am wanting to send out multiple CDs to save on postage", or " 2 or more items please".

To this end, you may allow members to combine Wish Listed items in this topic with CDs from your Tower in the interest of helping them meet your multiple sending requirement (i.e. "I am wanting to send out packages of 3 or more" ). However, you are NOT allowed to place requirements on your Wish List Multiples CD orders in any other way. Example: You may not require orders from your regular tower. You may only offer it as an option to help members meet your multiple sending requirements, in the event they cannot find enough Wish Listed Multiples in your post to satisfy that requirement.

Sets: If you have a complete set of CDs where some are WL'd and some are not, you may offer a deal on them in the interest of wanting to keep the set together. You MUST state which are and are not WL'ed.

*Sets* is also the *only* exception where you can offer an unpostable or ever-so-slightly damaged CD. If you have a Set of 7 CDs that are WL'd and 1 of them is damaged slightly.....you can offer the set, but the damaged disc must be clearly described a such in detail. If there is more than one damaged disc, then that must also be noted.

Please do not list only 1 item. This topic is for the purpose of saving money on postage by sending out multiples. And obviously, if your sending requirement asks members to order 3 or more items, then you need to have at least that many items on your list. Do not include statements like "first to PM me gets them". This constitutes placing further requirements on receivers that is not in keeping with the wishlist multiples purpose.

Wish List Multiples is a special privilege and only applies to this topic. Practices here do not carry over to your normal SwapCD account, i.e, You may not require multiple orders on your regular account and if you receive a FIFO order for a CD you must fulfill it as usual.

II. For the Receiving/Ordering Member:

The Sender will post CDs directly to your Wish List so that SwapaCD transaction fees can be applied.

Certain procedures must be in place to ensure that your order goes through seamlessly. Please make sure of the following:

That your Settings (under Privacy Controls) allows your Wish List to be public. Otherwise, the Sender will not be able to post directly to your Wish List. That you have the specific Wishlisted items you are requesting on Auto Request. That you have the correct corresponding UPC of the item you are requesting, so that the sending member can easily find it to post directly to your Wish List. That if your Tower is on vacation, you have the items you are requesting on Auto Request See: How does the Vacation Hold affect My Wish List? Link

That you have sufficient SwapaCD Money to cover each Wishlist Mulitple disc you are requesting. SwapaCD transaction fees must be observed and will apply to each CD you request. (If you are requesting 4 items, you need to have 4 x $0.49 = $1.96 in your account, etc.). If a CD is a set, and has 2 discs in it, you still only pay just one transaction fee of $0.49) That you have sufficient amount of Credits for the number of CDs you are ordering. There is nothing more frustrating for a sender than to try to post to your Wishlist and not have the order go through, and then have to fire off multiple PMs back and forth to correct the situation. You may not offer more than the SwapaCD *price* (1 credit = 1 disc, 2 credits = 2 discs)

III. Organization / Updating posts for Senders:

The topic can quickly become unweildy and cluttered, so please observe the following:

When some of the CDs in your post are taken, return and remove those items using the Edit function. You may use the strike-through tool for pending items, and then delete them entirely once they are sent. When all of your CDs are taken, please return to your post and delete ALL remaining information. If you need to add to your list as the month progresses, please return to your original post, and EDIT it, with your additions. In other words, each member should only have one post with their listings. This allows others to browse thru the Wishlist Multiples topic and see each member's offerings all in one post. PLEASE keep your posts updated and current. It is very frustrating for members to read through lists and find a CD they want, only to find out it is no longer available because you forgot to delete it from your posting.

IV. Organization / Updating posts for Receivers:

If you make a post in this topic, i.e. that you are PMing a request or listing titles you want, PLEASE return to your post and DELETE ALL information after CDs are posted to you.
