Swapdom Heads Home With New Marketplace

Online Swapping Community is Now Open to Home Goods

SAN FRANCISCO, CA.—May 2014— First, it was fashion. Then, baby and kids’ gear. Now, Swapdom, a one-of-a-kind online exchange system, is opening its marketplace to home goods. Beginning May 12, users can swap items from every room in the house in exchange for other home goods, fashion finds, or baby and kids’ gear. It’s a win-win-win for swappers and a big step forward for the sharing economy.

Just in time for summer, getting new clothes on your fast growing baby, something for you, your home — it’s not new, just new to you. How simple and wonderful is this idea? Great news for getting what you need at a low cost.  — the editor

recycleEngineered to make swapping easy and efficient, users simply request items they love, tell Swapdom what they would like to offer in exchange, and then let the site organize a multi-person swap for them.

“Swapdom is an efficient tool that finds multi-party swaps. Our algorithm is a vital component for peer to peer exchange,” said Petros Georgopoulos, co-founder and CEO of Swapdom. “Adding the home goods marketplace is a natural progression of how our site continues to grow. In five years’ time, when people think of peer-to-peer exchange, we want them to think of Swapdom.”

In addition to the new home goods marketplace, Swapdom is launching a myriad of key initiatives to improve user experience. They just launched a badging system to reward their most engaged community members, and will soon be adding USPS as a new shipping option, in addition to UPS. They will also be launching an iOS app soon, which will make it easier to browse and request swappable items on the go.


Founded in August 2013 and based in Thessaloniki, Greece, and San Francisco, California, Swapdom is an innovative online exchange system for the sharing economy driven by the power of the crowd. Designed to make swapping unbelievably easy and efficient, Swapdom is a new way to find one-of-a-kind previously owned items. Users simply request items they love, tell Swapdom what they’d offer in exchange, and then sit back and let Swapdom organize a multi-person swap for them. www.swapdom.com
