We have built Dart Swap to be as easy to use as possible. We do however appreciate that everybody has different levels of technical ability, especially after a session down at the local. For that reason, this help page should be enough to grasp the basics of using Dart Swap. If you are still struggling or think something on the website is broken, please get in touch.
To look at all the darts on offer from other Dart Swap members, you just need to click this button:
To see more, scroll down and more load (please be patient if you're still on dial-up) until it runs out of darts to show you.
Find a set of darts you like the look of, click on them and more details will be displayed. You will also be able to view any photos of those darts in full size by clicking on them.
You can add your darts to Dart Swap in a matter of minutes using the simple form by clicking this button:
You can use this button to access your Dart Swap account menu:

Swapping on is what Dart Swap is all about and it's easy. All you need to do is:
For security, once a swap has been agreed ie. you request it and they say yes, the darts you are swapping are automatically removed from the site. Also, the addresses shown on that swap cannot be changed (hence point 2 is important above).
IMPORTANT: There are a few people who insist on spoiling things. If you have any problems with a person you are dealing with on Dart Swap, please let us know. Known scammers will be blocked from the website.
We realise that you may not want to go straight into an official swap arrangement without having a chat first or asking some questions. For that reason, there is another button below the SWAP button on every darts listing page entitled 'Send a message instead'. It does what it says on the tin really. If you click it, a simple contact form comes up allowing you to send the owner of those darts you want a message. They can reply or ignore you - that's entirely up to them. This feature is designed for informal conversations and sharing personal information using it is not advised as everything you type into that box is sent to the other member via e-mail.
Whilst the main feature of this site is to swap darts with the system above being for that purpose, we understand that some people want to sell their darts instead. Exchanging money for goods across the internet can be risky so meeting in person is encouraged if you are buying/selling. If you want to do it all online, we suggest using an online payment service that can offer the buyer and seller protection if things go wrong.
Good luck with your swaps!
