There is an underage swapper, @HeatherNicole1218 , signed up for your swap. Here is the public forum discussion. I just wanted to warn you before you assign partners.

I just had a question if I'm from the us and sending a naked postcard to another country whats the postage I should put on it or should I just take it to the the post office?

Ok I just joined a swap----and I'm not sure how I go about getting the address of ther person I need to send a PC too. Help?!

CoCoLogo - The US postage for a postcard to all countries other than Canada and Mexico is $0.94. To Canada it is $0.75 and to Mexico it is $0.79. There are specific stamps for these amounts or you can use two $0.44 (or forever stamps) and a $0.10 stamp to make the international rate (or use old stamps if you have them to make the Can & MEX (rates).

MEDFORD8330 - When the signup period is over there will be a link in the upper right hand yellow box on this page that says "See the partners you send to". This will open a new window with your senders name and address and a link to their profile.

Welcome!

Thank so much Emerald...I appreciate that. I didn't want to get any low ratings b/c I didn't know what I was doing lol.

savannahjan 02/22/2011 #

International postage is $.98.

emeraldmist 02/25/2011 #

wow, you are so right Savannahjan... brain burp!!! International postage from America to any other country (other than Canada & Mexico) is $0.98. That's what I get for not rereading my posts before clicking "Leave comment" :) thanks!

I also posted a link on what you can and cannot send in the mail to different countries now (I have different family members working in the mail office here so they are keeping me up to date on the links)

Does a postcard purchased on Etsy (very nicely printed, totally blank on one side) count as store-bought for this swap?

Sunflower107 03/ 1/2011 #

I was wondering do we have to put AIR MAIL on overseas post cards. I would think everything goes by air today not like years ago.

anderson87 03/ 1/2011 #

The host of this swap hasn't been online in a month...

medford8330 03/ 1/2011 #

Has anyone been matched up yet? I havent.

angellica 03/ 2/2011 #

Sorry for the delay in assigning partners - all sorted now! Let me know if you have any problems

Hi, Angellica! I sent you a message on 2/19 re your Feb swap which hasn't been read yet. Curious as to your response.

thetoothfairy 03/ 2/2011 #

I THOUGHT IT WAS .98 CENTS TO SEND ANYWHERE OTHER THAN US, CANADA and MEXICO. I've been sending postcards for over a year. You can also verify my info at:

kayler00 03/ 3/2011 #

great - my partner @cortx hasn't logged in since Feb 19, never even been rated & the host isn't replying to my messages.

Winkie 03/ 3/2011 #

Kayler00, I've had the same with the host and my partner from the Feb swap who flaked on me for Angellica's 2011 PC Swap #2 - February. Although the host finally logged into this site, she has not read my message.

kayler00 03/ 3/2011 #

She's read mine & hasn't written me back. So, I guess I won't be getting a postcard for this swap. =/ I don't understand, if someone is going to make a swap - make sure you'll be logged in & can go through everyones profiles!

MissPaula 03/ 4/2011 #

@Kayler00 I sent to cortx and I was wondering if she would flake....some hosts do a skip and have the flaker skipped and their sender send to their partner. At any rate-PM me your addy and I will send you a card! = )

peacegirl10 03/ 8/2011 #

I got my address to send a postcard. I thought I was sending it somewhere not in the U.S., because that's where I am. I am going to send it, just curious if I misunderstood. :o)

peacegirl10 03/ 8/2011 #

ok-no laughing, what do you mean when you say naked postcard?

kayler00 03/ 8/2011 #

Naked, you send it written & stamped - not in an envelope.

& Swap Bot randomly assigns the partners, so you never know who you'll send to. Or, where.

Babytreese 03/ 8/2011 #

Got my beautiful card today Suzanne...thanks! How blessed you are to live in such an amazing place!

peacegirl10 03/13/2011 #

I rc my post card from India, & I love it!! thank you Gaurie.

peacegirl10 03/13/2011 #

how do I give someone a rating?

peacegirl10 03/13/2011 #

ignore my question, I answered it myself, pretty silly..lol

leticiaaff 03/15/2011 #

Yaaay!! I mailed it today, can't wait to get mine! :D

leticiaaff 03/17/2011 #

And I got mine today!! Wow, that was fast \o/

Chinnu 03/21/2011 #
