Does Swappa support local pickup arrangements?

Please note that the below information only applies to listings on Swappa that don't offer an official Local pickup option. For more information on Swappa Local, please click here.

Swappa doesn't recommend local pickup or delivery arrangements for standard listings. This is primarily due to the risk of voiding the protections that PayPal offers for transactions here on Swappa. PayPal protections rely on proof of delivery with a valid tracking number, and this isn't something that can be provided when delivering an item locally.

However, if both parties agree to proceed with the potentially limited protections in mind, Swappa doesn't strictly prohibit this. Swappa simply asks that the purchase still be made on Swappa, and the local pickup arrangements can then be made on the private sale page created once the listing is purchased. This will allow staff to stay involved with the process and offer support if needed.
