Helpful Tips For Snail Mail Trading

  • ALWAYS read the other trader’s rules & follow them.
  • NEVER burn a CDR, DVD or Blu-Ray TAO or Track At Once.
  • Always keep in touch during the trade process. Communication is key to avoiding misunderstandings.
  • Always place your discs in a padded bubble mailer envelope.
  • Use CD Sleeves or printer paper to enclose the discs to keep them from getting scratched in transit.
  • If you are sending shows abroad always check the “Gift” box on the customs form. This ensures that the other trader does not have to pay any extra fees just to get their shows.
  • Don’t write on the discs unless the other trader asks you to. To indicate the show info most traders are fine with post-it notes or small pieces of paper placed in the sleeve.
  • Always send the package via Air Mail NEVER Ground. Ground can take weeks to reach a destination.
