Upcoming Changes to the Missouri Swap Shops Effective June 1st
The swap shops have grown tremendously, and continue to do so. The problem with our growth is that others have taken notice, and seek to spam or hijack our groups. No doubt you have seen some of the ads for shoes, purses, weight loss, etc. While we work hard to keep these problems down to a minimum, some still make it through the approval process.
Starting June 1st, we will be adding a new policy to all the swap shops associated with our network. We will no longer allow distributor posts of ANY kind, local or otherwise. We will no longer allow the posting of business advertising unless approved by the administrators of the network or the individual pages.
The original idea behind the shops was to provide an outlet for individuals to buy, sell, trade or barter personal items. Because of the increasing number of distributor and business postings, these individual posts are being pushed out of the way.
With the new policy, businesses may post on the sites by paying a small fee for advertising across the network. By paying one fee, the ad will appear on all of the swap shops in the Missouri Swap Shop Network.
Thanks for using the shops. We appreciate your use, and we hope that it provides a unique service in you life. We also appreciate your feedback and suggestions as well.
