The Gift Exchange Status information is a list of steps that must be completed throughout the course of the exchange. Once a step has been successfully completed, our system will cross that step off of the list. On the bottom right you will see what steps you have left to complete the exchange. The list on the bottom left will show what steps your Santa has completed, including the date that your Santa last reviewed your shipping information and likes/dislikes.
Any shipment information provided by your Santa is shown in the upper right of the exchange page under the exchange title. If your Santa has confirmed shipping but did not provide details of this shipment, no information will be provided. Tracking numbers are not required, but they are encouraged. Please also keep in mind that some people don’t check giftee information more than once.
Because proof of shipping is optional, this will automatically cross out once your recipient posts their gift in the gallery. If you prove shipping a gift after marking your gift shipped, this will also cross out the steps and complete the sending portion of the exchange even if your recipient has not posted their gift yet.
In the unhappy event that you do not receive a gift from your Santa and have to report no gift, you may notice that everything has been crossed off of your Santas list even though you have not completed some of the steps. This happens because you have done everything you need to do as the receiver. Your Santa will still be required to prove shipping or they will be banned. You can always come back and thank your Santa if your Santa shipped late or delivery of your gift was delayed.
0 credit/no fault exchanges are sometimes handled differently and may auto complete after a certain date.
