This is an ultra low spending swap. You'll send your partner a PIF (play it forward) from their Etsy Favs. The spending range should be $.20-$3 (before shipping). Please have at least 6 items in your favs to pick from.

Here is an easy link to the PIFs. You can then sort it by price, etc.

The fine print: Ratings of 4.9 and above only. No no-sends within the last six months. Please only join this swap if you intend to rate your partner. I hate to crack the whip, but please have a full profile and log in at least two weeks before the sign up deadline. Don't be a hater (flaker)!

One thing to watch...I have seen a few sellers put things in as PIFs, and then charge a ton for shipping.

LauraAust 01/ 9/2011 #

So - it has to be items marked as "PIF" in Etsy, correct?

And if you find a seller with combined shipping of $2.00 - you could buy five 20 cent items from that seller (for a total of $3.00), correct?

I re-worded the swap. Some sellers will only allow you to purchase 1 PIF from there. Others don't care. I hope the new wording makes more sense?

An example of overinflated shipping: link

It sucks because way back when PIFs started there weren't many charges for shipping. In fact, PIFs aren't supposed to have shipping! I used to list mine and state that in the description.

Yeah, a lot of sellers mark PIF's shipping too high! I always have PIFs in my shop :)

My 2 shops are: glamazon08 & BerrySweetTreats

I don't have a lot of PIFs as favorites, so I'm happy with anything kawaii or cute! Like trims, beads, etc. which you can see in my faves which most are or under $1 anyways.

You have to watch clearance stuff too I guess. I had something for .99 in my favs until I realized it was a chinese company attempting to charge like $48 for the shipping!

Sorry guys, I had to drop :( I really wanted to be part of this swap!

can anyone explain how i would add my etsy faves to my profile?

DosLittleMonkeys 01/22/2011 #

When you edit your profile and put it under Etsy Favorites, your link should look like this, only with your username on Etsy instead of mine:

Hi all! I'm going to go ahead and assign partners but it looks like @crafyfairy is still working on her link. Please don't forget ladies to add things to your Etsy labeled PIF. Have fun!! :)
