Trade DVDs, services, furniture, books, used phones and anything else absolutely free with SwapSity. This site is where a $300 massage was exchanged for children's story books!

It is amazing how much stuff we own and skills we possess, yet hardly use. What if they could be turned into purchasing power? The owner of SwapSity was driven to revolutionize how Canadians acquire goods and services, creating the ultimate online barter destination where users can exchange virtually anything.

A long weekend at your vacant Muskoka cottage can be swapped for a wedding planner, home renovations for a dental check-up or gently used DVDs for rides to work. The concept saves money and extends the life of pre-loved items. More importantly, barter transactions forge bonds between people and build community.

As one member aptly puts it, "Swapping puts a sense of warmth and humanity back into transactions."
