Welcome to Bento Swap. Newbies - please check out our FAQ's:
Group DescriptionWelcome to the Bento Swap Group!
WHAT WE ARE ABOUT:
This is a group for the bento obsessed and those who are new to bento. We have a great group of bento fanatics here and welcome all newbies and veterans.
WHAT WE DO HERE
We have two types of swaps here. One is the monthly group swap. Each month we all pick a theme and get matched up with partners either in the US or International. You can pick which one works for you. Our other swaps are private swaps where you can post photos of what you have to trade or post messages on what you are looking for. You can then set up swaps yourself but the admins are always here to help if you need it.
Please feel free to join in on the monthly group swap, or arrange your own private swaps. See below for more group info.
-Please post pictures of your bento swaps!
-You may also post photos of tempting items you wish to swap for more
bento gear, or treats and souvenirs from other places.
-Edible items should be non-perishable and light weight for thrifty
-Be sensible to your partner's dietary issues, and avoid
shipping chocolate and other delicate items in the summer.
-You may not swap for cash - this is a swap community only. Custom
purchases are tolerated
- if you have access to something someone wants, go for it. If you have a shop, or are a crafter or artist, please let us know in your profile.
-If you join the monthly group swaps, make sure you have the funds for the items, shipping, packaging, and insurance(if needed).
-You must also get your items mailed on or before the agreed date.
-Communication is the key to a good swap experience. If something comes up that will affect your swap, let your partner know. If there are major issues with your partner, do not hesitate to contact the group admins. We will do everything we can to help out.
-The majority of our swaps have a 10 dollar USD maximum unless otherwise noted. You can create a different limit but only if both partners agree to it.
-Any problems with partners should be brought to the attention of the admins. We will fully investigate all claims and make the most appropriate and fair decisions possible with the information we have.
-Flakers will be banned from the group without exceptions
And above all, have fun swapping and we're so happy to have you as part of the group!!!
