Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I find games that I am requesting and offering?

What is “My Collection”?

"My Collection" is the page that shows all the games you currently own that you have added in our system. Your collection may be seen by other users (depending on your privacy settings).

How are game prices calculated on LeapTrade?

On LeapTrade, our game prices are simply based on the FAIR VALUE of the game. That's right – fair value. Our game prices are determined by taking into account prices on auction and used-game sites from around the Web. This ensures our game values are always fair and competitive.

Who pays for shipping on LeapTrade?

Shipping costs are always paid for by the user trading in the game, and free for the user receiving the game. So if you are receiving a game, you can kick back and relax. LeapTrade will notify you when the game has shipped and provide delivery confirmation.

If you are the user trading in a game, you are responsible for paying the shipping costs and sending it out. Don't worry, LeapTrade makes shipping games easy. You can print a shipping label right from the LeapTrade site for $3.49. Just place your game in a protective bubble mailer, slap on the shipping label, and drop it in the mail.

Do I send my games directly to LeapTrade?

No. Users ship games directly to one another. This speeds up the trading process so you get your games faster. When a member requests one of your games, LeapTrade will notify you. If you accept the trade, LeapTrade will provide you the recipient's address and the ability to print a shipping label. Just place the game in a protective bubble mailer, slap on the shipping label, and drop it in the mail. BAM – trade complete!

What am I required to include when I mail my games?

What you need to include with your game depends on the condition you listed your game in when you offered it for trade. There are three condition options for games offered on LeapTrade (Full Package, Disc + Case, Disc Only). Here's what should be included for each condition:

  • Full Package: Includes EVERYTHING that came in the original game package: disc, case, and manual. Game disc plays perfectly (may have minor scratches). Case has no more than a few minor scratches.
  • Disc & Case: This includes only the game disc and case, no manual or inserts. Game plays perfectly (may have minor scratches).
  • Disc Only: This includes the original game disc only, no case or manual. Game plays perfectly (may have minor scratches).
