I just joined also, but I'm slightly confused.  If an item costs 2 credits, there is also a 2 credit shipping cost?

The credit "price" is determined by the seller, as is the shipping cost for each item.  A general guideline is $1 equals 1 credit but it isn't always like that, a lot of items people just don't need anymore for there kids and they are ready to pass them to someone else to get something they can use so they will offer at a low credit price.   So you have to look at the cost of the item + the cost of shipping to determine how many credits total you will have to spend.   Is like if I bought something on ebay there will be the cost of the item plus the cost of shipping.  Unlike this site though you can't purchase credits :0(  so it may take some patience to get things up and going before you get credits and go on a shopping spree.  My id there is the same as it is here so look me up and send me a message or feel free to ask me questions.

Ok thank you for the clarification!  From what I can see it's a really neat site.  I just need to post some stuff to "sell".

If anyone joins please look me up and send me a message, my id is the same on kizoodle as it is here-luckylane27, can't wait to see what goodies everyone has to swap!  My advice is to get a few things listed for low credits so they can get kizoodled quick and then mail them off so the transactions can get completed ASAP and then you will be able to shop, I know patience is hard but let me know your ids and I will check out your stuff and try to kiz something!

Is this mainly for babies & toddlers, or for all ages? It won't let me browse before I sign up.

I think they should let you start buying credits. It would be good for the site and well I would probably want to "buy" more than sell so it would be good for people like me.

You're going to be getting tons of credits because I signed up too!

There are lots of things for babies and kids including older ones but there are other categories like mom stuff-dvds, cds, crafts, clothes, shoes, household stuff, even dad stuff, coupons (baby & kid related).  The more members the greater the variety of items.  Yeah I wish they would let us buy credits like here, we have suggested several times but they are not going for it yet.  I have gotten lots of great things for my kids, even done some Christmas shopping already.

I went to the site to look around and the newest item listed was Camel (cigarette) Coupons. ?? I'm confused, I thought this was a kids site.
