I requested both books from the same person. It took 2 credits of course but it appears it only used 1 swap. That is good to know. That is new information for me. I didn't know that.

Yes Charles, the fee is for each SWAP. This encourages members to order MORE books from the same member. I am glad you found 2 you wanted. 

What if I order two books from the same person? Do I get charged two swap fees?

  • No, each shipment you request costs one swap fee (even if the shipment has more than one book in it)
