International Postage Advice


We Swap internationally! 

As you do have to send us your unwanted clothes first, we want to make sure you're not spending a fortune in postage. Here are our recommendations for your country. 

Prices can increase drastically if your package goes over the recommended weight and size dimensions. You can go over this if you wish, but please be aware you may end up spending a lot more on postage.

If you find a cheaper method, please do let us know so we can inform other Swappers and we can continue spreading the Swap Revolution around the world!
