What is Vegan Package Swap?
It is a international project where you swap packages with other people. It is a vegan swap which means all goodies in the packages MUST be vegan, so NO MEAT, FISH, MILK, EGGS, HONEY or any other animal-derived substances such as gelatine.
How does it work?
Vegan Package Swap works in 7 simple steps:
1 – Register to the website;
2 – Login between the 3rd and 5th of each month you want to take part and joint it/confirm your participation;
3 – Get your details on the 7th or login in the website to check them if you don’t get an email;
4 – Communicate with your pair (it is a rule now!);
5 – Prepare your package with goodies up to $20 (or 15 Euro or equivalent in other currency) and send it until the 15th;
6 – Wait for your package to arrive;
7 – Enjoy your goods (and rate your swap!).
What are the shipping options?
You can decide to swap with people from your own country/continent or worldwide.
What are the good and bad of these shipping options?
Shipping nationally is faster and cheaper, but it’s harder to get new or unknown goodies.
Shipping worldwide gives you the opportunity to try goodies from different places, but it costs more and packages can take from 2 to 8 weeks to arrive.
What if I don’t get a package?
We do not take responsibility if you do not get your package but we do offer a package insurance through our Super Swapper subscription.
What else can I get as a Super Swapper?
Besides the package insurance you will participate in exclusive giveaways, get more entries in regular giveaways and on the 6th of each month you will be able to CHOOSE your pair! Pretty cool, isn’t it?
What if there are non-vegan items in my package?
We do not take responsibility for what is inside each package but sending non-vegan items is one justified reason to be banned from the project.
