    ummm... It was my understanding that you send money to the person who is sending you the plants.

    Here's an example.

    Reg: "I'll put up a D. capensis for trade!"
    Clint: "I'll take it and put up U. longifolia!"
    Zero:"I'll take that and offer a D. spatulata!"

    I would pay shipping to Reg, and Zero would pay shipping to me.

    The only time this doesn't happen is when two people want something each other has. In my trade with Pyro, we both sent each other plants and didn't send any money. Or unless stated otherwise that you don't want shipping.

    It makes more sense to me to just pay for your own shipping lol.

    Also, shipping should be paid by the recipient unless otherwise specified.

    And unless it's all you have, avoid D. capensis or other things everyone already has.

    So, I'll start. My item is small so I'll pay shipping on this one.

    One pack of a bunch of D. burmanii (Beerwah Qld) seed. (about 50-100 seeds).

    Again, the first person to reply AND put up an item of theirs gets it. I'll confirm the winner.

    I stand corrected.

    That's what it says, but I think it should be changed. I see no reason why money should have to change hands. You will be spending money on shipping no matter what, why complicate things. I think it should be like this:

    Person1 - offers aaa plant
    Person2 - takes aaa and offers bbb plant
    Person3 - takes bbb and offers ccc

    Person1 pays to ship aaa to Person2. Person 2 pays to ship bbb to Person3 and so on.

    Yeah I totally agree. It's easier and you get the plants faster.

    I almost sent pyro money when I wasn't supposed to lol. Perfect example.

    I agree whole-heartedly with your sentiment Larry. I have been paying the shipping on items that I have offered up and so far most folks have paid the shipping on the items I have gotten from them. Assuming that all continue to offer/take actively from this chain, the only one who would "lose" a shipping fee would be Capslock who made the first offering. The only reason to have people pay shipping on what they take is if you have some people taking but not giving -- since that is not allowed in the simple structure of the chain, it should be easy to change.

    Oops, you put that so much more concisely than me JustLikeAPill-- Can we have a consensus then, maybe, from the users of this thread? That could get complicated, huh?

    Yeah, it's easiest if no money changes hands. I'm for that.
