I'll try my best to explain it step by step... it'll take a while for me to type...

Well, you have a thread called a Gift Exchange (GE) and there you have a list of items you have up for trade and another list of items that you would like to recieve. Another trader comes and posts on your GE asking if they can go ahead and offer on a certain item/s. You let them offer and if you like their items you tell them your WW user name, they tell you their's and you send them a friend request (on WW, FR) Then the person with the least amount of Giftz (found under your # of posts) sends first, when you recieve their gift, you send. Then both of you leave feedback (FB) which is like an evaluation on how the trade went and how the trader was. When both people have left FB then the trade is 100% compleated.

Hope this isn't just confusing you more!

Instead of leaving positive feedback, you would leave negative, which would cause the 100% by their Giftz to drop and I guess you would flag it and let the staff take care of it... its never happened to me, so I'm not 100% sure...

dotdotduck has explained most of it for ya, I'll try to explain the process in first getting to the GE.
Before you start any of that, first, you have to become a Gift Trainee *** GT}. You can apply here:
http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...mation-219641/
Once you get accepted (might not be right away ), the Training GE (forgot what it's called) will be unlocked to you. I believe that you have to post at this thread, and you'll be assigned a Gift Coach *** GC}. Your next few weeks will be filled with pop quizzes, quick trades, making lists, and giving feedback (sounds like fun, right? xD)
After making a few really good trades, you'll become Gifted, and the "Big GE" will be unlocked to you.
But trading itself, is basically what dotdotduck said, I just thought you'd might like to know how to get there.

LOL, hope I didn't get you really confused, it's just a really long process.
Good luck, and I hope we see you in the GE soon!

Well, when you become Gifted, or a Gift Trainee, you can choose to make a Gift Exchange Thread. You don't have to, but it might be easier for the people you're trading with to know what you'd like to receive. Alright, so first, if you decide to construct a Gift Exchange Thread, then you'd type up all the items that you'd like to trade for others on WW, so lets say you had two Poodle PSI's. Maybe you'd like to trade the 2nd one for something else, you'd write that in your thread. Someone might be wanting that, so they'd come on your thread and maybe type something like this:

Hi there, I♥twilight!
I'd really like to offer on your Poodle PSI. Let me know what you'd like!

So, this is where your 'Wants List' comes in handy. Lets say you've been wanting a Pig PSI for awhile - then you'd write that down under your wants. Lets say the person who wants your Poodle Item has an extra Pig Item, so you could ask for that! The two of you would have to agree to the trade, and one of you would add the other member on WW. The member with the least amount of Trades would have to send first. So lets say you have 12, and they had 24, you'd have to send the Poodle Item first, and they'd have to receive it before sending the Pig Item.

I hope I explained it clearly enough, if you have troubles with the Gift Exchange let me know, or even better, contact a Gift Coach, they'll be sure to have answers to all your questions. (:
Good luck in the Gift Exchange!
