Do you trade?

This Storque Blog article about Trades through We Swap got me thinking about some of the more home-grown trades taking place right here on Etsy. Interest in trades is popular in the Chat rooms of course, and it would be great to hear from some of you who have first-hand experience trading with other Etsy sellers.
Please drop me a convo, or leave a Comment here to help put together a checklist or guide to successful trading. Or add a Comment to let other blog readers know you're interested in trades now, or for the upcoming holiday season!

Chatter FrawgzDezignz has offered a detailed view of Trades on Etsy, based on her own experiences:
  • Communication is key, for both sides
  • Read Feedback before you start
  • Successful trades can lead to future sales
  • Check Feedback Left for others too
  • Some people are difficult to deal with
  • You have a right to turn down any trade
  • Wait to leave Feedback
  • Package and ship well
  • Be honest in all communication
