You have original, playable CDs that you do not want to keep.
You post those CDs to your "CD Tower" to offer to other members
You add funds to your swapacd money account (this pays the 49-cent transaction fee for each CD you request)
After you have posted the first 10 CDs to your CD Tower, you get a "gift" credit from SwapaCD to get you started swapping. After that, you earn credits by sending out CDs to others.
You may order any available CD for 1 credit per disc (multidisc/boxed sets cost 1 credit per disc included)
If you want a CD that is not currently available, you can place it on your Wish List and we will notify you by email when it is available for you to order. You can even have it sent to you automatically when it becomes available, with no email necessary.
When a CD is requested from you, we notify you by email, provide the address for you to send it out, and even provide a wrapper!
Wrap and mail your CD.
When the requestor receives it, you earn 1 credit. Yes, you pay the postage to send out your CDs, but when you request a CD, the sender ships it to you and you pay only the 49-cent transaction fee (plus 1 CD credit per disc)!
The CDs you receive from SwapaCD are yours. We hope that you will repost them to share with other members when you have listened to them, but you can certainly keep them, or give them away. Similarly, the CDs you send out to others belong to their new owners.
SwapaCD is a great way to share CDs with people all over the country!
