Swappa is dedicated to making the Boneyard a safe place to buy and sell, but Swappa does not review and approve all Boneyard posts.

A note about buyer safety...

Please note, Swappa staff does not review and approve all Boneyard posts the same way we do listings in our primary marketplace.

We do our best to foster a safe marketplace, but bad apples always try to crash the party. So please use caution and common sense when buying, and flag prohibited posts as necessary.

If you do end up buying a bum post from an unscrupulous seller, you will be protected by PayPal's Purchase Protections, and can use their Dispute Resolution Process to get your money back if necessary.
