    I fail at reading properly- it does seem like printed receipts will work fine

    What do you all think about extending this to vendors(with booths) at the swap? Assuming the vendors can be trusted, they could be given tickets to hand out with each sale.

    I think its too late to organize that for this year, the people working the swap are already running hard right now.

    Worth talking about for next year, so you may wish to propose it on the next swap thread.

    sponsors with booths are your proposing all vendors ? I do know raffle tickets are a good percentage of income to offset the swap costs. I'd imagine if every vendor qualified then it would reduce the # of raffle ticket purchased. I know if I spent $100 at the swap and recieve 10 tickets I'd buy less tickets.

    I agree with it being too late for changes this swap. Just tossing out an idea in what seemed to be a logical place. Fine to move the discussion to another thread if that is a more appropriate venue.

    I was proposing all vendors with booths ( but not for sellers who just post pre-sales in the forms ). I assume the receipt thing we do now is meant to be a way of encouraging people to shop at the sponsor's stores to increase the desirability of being a sponsor and that we continue to do it because it is at least somewhat effective. It seems like the same logic could apply to vendors at the swap. It makes it more desirable to be a vendor. Be a vendor at the swap, you'll sell lots of stuff, partially because we'll give you raffle tickets you can hand out.
