    To keep shipping costs down, I try to assign partners that are in the same geographic location. It's not always possible depending on who signs up and where they are located so keep that in mind if you decide to join. If you are requesting a partner in your own country, in signing up for this swap, you agree to accept the swap partner assigned even if they are outside your country if a local partner is not available.
  • Please confirm that your swap piece is already created and that you will mail it to your swap partner before the due date?
