Smile How have your experiences trading been?

Hello! I haven't really thought about trading much for a few reasons. First, I don't really have any extra great items because I give many things to my daughters. Also, I am worried that trading will became a new "addiction" for me. I already have to watch myself in Webkinz world to be sure I don't overstay my welcome (in other words, I could really stay on for hours if given the opportunity).
That being said, there are certain rare or exclusive items that I would like to have.

And this brings me to my question: How have your experiences trading on WI been (as opposed to the Club House or other places where one can get easily cheated).

It seems like the rules are clear and that anyone who is willing to follow the rules and be honest can really enjoy trading. I'm not really looking for opinions that seek to trash WI (like bringing up the worst experience you've ever had, if there has been one). I am just curious about whether it has become a major committment or just an added benefit that makes Webkinz world more fun.

Thanks in advance for replying!

I LOVE IT! And I have no complaints whatsoever! It was a big committment for me to get it started, because I have about 50 rooms and over 30 Webkinz. It took me a while to get together a list of the things that I was willing to trade and wished I had. Once you have your stuff together and started, keeping it up is no big deal. I have traded roughly ten times and have had no complaints or problems at all. Actually, I will no longet trade in the Clubhouse because I HAVE been ripped off there once.

My suggestion is to create an Excel Spreadsheet to track what you have/want to trade as well as any trades that are in progress (who you are trading and what you are trading). If you need any help or have any question, feel free to ask.

Good Luck!

I love trading here! Though i suffer similiar problems, i don't have xtras to trade with people. but i manage, sometimes breaks are good!!!

+ its a lot safer than the clubhouse. But still be careful and for new traders always make them trade first in a case of an "experienced" trader just to be safe! It can be a commitment you make to keep up with all the offers, but it makes webkinz more fun to trade for things you actuallly want!

I have had good experiences. I understand about it being yet another addiction. I started will small things and am slowy working my way bigger. Most people are very patient and willing to work with you to make sure both parties are getting fair trade. Fair not only in price, but in the value of how hard it is to get and how much it means to you. I don't think you should worry about the ripoff factor. Also you can put as much or as liitle time you want into it. Once I gained gifted status, I browsed lots of gift threads to get a feel of how people did things and then started mine. Good luck in becoming gifted, don't worry it is a good thing overall.

Thank you so much for the informative and helpful views. I am glad so many people find trading fun. I am not surprised that trading on this forum has been positive. Your info about people's patience and tips about how to keep track, are really helpful.

Trading here on WI is definitely one of the most fun things to do on WI. I don't have any extras of anything, but trading is still exciting for me! Trading in the Clubhouse for me is a lot different cause it's so hard to grasp people's attention and actually get them to do a good trade with you. I think you should go ahead and try the Gift Exchange. Here's one of my favorite things to say when I don't have much rare items and stuff. It's the transformation of W Shop Items. W Shop Items >> Curio Shop Items >> Exclusives >> Pet Specific Items >> Superbeds >> Retireds! So it's just fun to see that maybe just maybe, one day W Shop Items will transform to retireds! It is a confusing transformation, so if you don't really get it, that's fine. xD
