I’m very new to this, so sorry if this is a dumb question. Will we be told who our swap partner is at the sign up deadline or the send by deadline? Like will it be a surprise the whole time?

@Fruitwink yes, once the swap deadline passes, click back into the swap and on the right-hand side, there will be a yellow box with a link to your partner's information.

Hai everyone I’m new to this how can I know my partner.i still didn’t receive any message.

noname13 12/27/2018 #

What do you consider to be a fully filled profile ? @Hirasha has only 3 lines on the profile...

bella80 12/30/2018 #

@Hirasha click on "click to see your partner" in the yellow box on the top right

@noname13 I consider a "fully filled out profile" to vontain some info on their interests, what they swap, etc. Newbies are allowed. I may bave missed checking a few people. But as I mentioned in my message above yours, if there is any issues with not receiving your end of the swap, contact your partner to find out what is happening, and also let me know.

Hello!!! I'm a newbie!! I'm excited about this!!! ❤️

I am from Canada and I was kind of (just a little bit) teeny weeny not happy of my swap partner because I was expecting someone from somewhere coming from Asia or perhaps Europe or Africa as this was the very reason I signed up in the group because it is International, but I was assigned to someone who is also from my country, not to mention we are in the same province! I was very glad we're not in the same city. I was really looking forward of knowing other culture or perhaps a language. I am still happy though to get a new penpal.

I think my partner Is not going to send their mail.

Ramoontje78 01/11/2019 #

There are a lot of people who didn't send out.. Including my partner😭😭

@paperpanic If I understand the system correctly, the partner allocation is done automatically and randomly by SwapBot, so no human involved. There's lots of international letter swaps, though, so just keep signing up, eventually you'll get partners from other countries! @Ramoontje78 Sometimes people send their stuff, but forget to press the send button on here (or don't get round to it - not everybody can get online every day...) - so don't despair just yet!

@kingcarmen well last online 26 december.. And 1 rating.. I think she won't ship anything..
