    08 list new item - How To Use Fragswapper Tutorial

    9. Listing Info
    Here you enter information about the item you want to sell. You can take a look at what I've entered to get an idea of what to do. If you don't know what something means you can click the little question mark boxes in the section titles to get more help about that section. Make sure to be as descriptive, and honest, as possible. You can also list up to 10 pictures for your listing. If you have a photobucket, flickr, or other photo sharing account you can directly link to your images in your listing. If you don't have a photo sharing account, I suggest you sign up for one since it's hard to sell something without pictures! Click the direct link checkbox if the url you put into the textbox goes directly to the image, that way you will have the image show up in the listing, or thumbnails for everything after the first image.

    Click "Listings" at the top, then under "Trade Lists" on the left hand side choose "All (New First)". Your listing should be right there at the top of the next page. There are a lot more options to view listings under "Trade Lists" that you can play with to get the hang of finding listings on Fragswapper. You can also choose someone's name under "Swappers" to view only items listed by that person.

    Great tutorial! Makes it sound difficult if you just read it, but believe me these steps take minutes...and then you're good to go forever.

    will Fragswapper work to list faffle items??? I wouldnt mind practicing this way, along with advertising the swap a bit to others interested, but without info yet.

    No, it wouldn't work for raffle items. You'd promote the swap the same way you promote every swap - through the forums and lfs. Those threads could list sponsors and raffle items. Then, you would state that the event was on fragswapper, and people would go there to list items. Fragswapper is only for people selling/buying/trading frags.
