Last updated: October 2023
To safeguard and ensure a peaceful experience for all users of our app Swappyverse, where anyone can post and exchange/swap unique items, certain ads are not allowed. It may seem trivial, but it’s worth remembering. Contents must comply with the Community Guidelines and Terms and Conditions of Use. Otherwise, the ad will be deleted, and no one will be able to view it. Also, please note that we do not allow the posting of illegal products. If a person repeatedly disregards the rules, we may disable their account.
We reserve the right to redefine items that can or cannot be placed on SwappyVerse. If we find that certain items violate our terms, we may remove them, even if they are not listed below.
Below is a list of products you cannot post on Swappyverse. Please note that we continuously update this list:
- Posting the same product multiple times on our app if it is active or placing the same product on more than one account is not allowed.
- Duplicate ads are considered when the same item or service is offered in different listings. Posting the same items on the same account or different accounts is considered spam.
- In case of non-compliance, we will proceed with the suspension or deletion of the ads or account. The fee paid for the premium service regarding the accounts on which we take action cannot be refunded or credited to your account.
