Disney pin collectors who enjoy trading pins with others will be delighted to know that they no longer have to travel to a Disney the park to trade their pins. By registering an account at PinPics.com you can now trade pins and meet other collectors from the comfort of your own home.
If you're interested in online pin trading, the first thing you should do is to register an account at PinPics.com and create your profile. This profile contains all your details, protected by a username and password, as well as a list of all your types of Disney pins. You can arrange your pins into three categories; those you own and wish to trade, those you want to keep to yourself, and a wish list of all the pins you are looking for. PinPics already has pictures of almost every available pin so it's very likely that you won't have to upload a single image. You should, however, describe your pins in accurate detail.
Once your profile is up and running, PinPics will automatically search their database for traders with the pins you are looking for and traders who are looking to acquire one of the pins in your collection. Once a match is found, PinPics will send a 'trade request' email, to arrange the trade of these pins. It is then up to the traders themselves to accept or deny the trade.
If both traders are happy to make the trade, the next thing to do is to work out the details. It is important to make sure that both you and the other trader understands the terms of the trade, what pins are being traded and what delivery method should be used to transport the pins to their retrospective new owners.
Preparing your pin for delivery is also important. Make sure that it is securely packaged and that it is not vulnerable to damage whilst being transported. This will ensure a happy trade all around. The use of bubble wrap is highly recommended when packaging pins for transport.
If you're new to trading online and worried about security or trust issues, it might be a good idea to involve a moderator in the trade to ease your worries. When trading through a moderator,
The most important thing to remember when trading Disney pins online is the importance of communication. Good communication will ensure that both you and the person you are trading with know exactly what you are getting as well as when and how you will get it. If there is a problem with the trade you email the other person to let them know immediately. Gaining the trust of other pin traders will most likely lead to more positive trades in the future.
