A Pop-Up Pin Board is a limited time, unique online pin trading experience created by Pin & Pop.
Who is the Pop-Up Pin Board for?
This special event is for new and experienced pin traders alike. While certain Pop-Up Pin Boards will focus on either lower value pins or limited edition pins, most events will showcase a variety of pins.
To participate you must have an account on Pin & Pop. Only active accounts will get access to the online event link.
Where does the Pop-Up Pin Board happen?
These trade events happen exclusively on the Pin & Pop website. A limited time access link will be provided just before the event starts.
Yes, this type of online trading event is an experiment created by Pin & Pop. Therefore, we need to hear from you on how the event goes and what improvements need to be made. We will send out a survey after the event to get your feedback.
How do I participate in a P&P Pop-Up Pin Board Event?
To participate, you must first have an active account on Pin & Pop. Second, you will also need to have pins marked as traders in your account that you can use to trade during the event.
How do I set up traders in my P&P account?
It is easy to add traders into your account. Search for the pin you own and have available for trade. Click the arrow next to the "OWN" button. When the drop down opens, click on "Trader". That's it!
What happens after I submit some pins for trades?
The pin trade option(s) you've submitted will be presented to the pin owner immediately when the trade event ends. Once they have reviewed and picked their trades (within 3 business days) you will be notified by email if your pin was accepted or declined.
My trade was accepted! Now what?
Both trading parties send their pins through Pin & Pop's Trade Protection. Not only does this provide an extra layer of security and privacy for our members, but Pin & Pop's Trade Protection also guarantees that both pins are received and verified as authentic before they're sent on to their new owners.
How do I use Pin & Pop's Trade Protection?
Mail your pins as soon as you receive your acceptance email.

Pin & Pop Trade Protection
Pin & Pop is all about pin trading. It's such a fun and wonderful experience in the parks, but trading online with someone you've never met can be frustrating and risky. That's why we created Trade Protection and provide it for all of our Pop-up Pin Boards and Pin Trading Events.
1. Keep Your Addresses Private
All trades come through Pin & Pop first. You ship your traded pins to us, and we ship them to their new home. That means you don't have share your home address or email address with anyone but us. (and our lips are sealed)
2. Save Shipping Costs and Hassle
Since all trades come through Pin & Pop you just ship your pins to us. Only one package to pack and only one label to print. It doesn't matter if you are making one trade or twenty trades. (just think of all the printer ink you'll save)
3. Don't get Pin-napped
Pin & Pop verifies that both traded pins are received before they get shipped out to their new owners. If the other pin doesn't show, your pin is safe, and will be returned to you.
4. No Trade Surprises (in a bad way)
Pin & Pop authenticates that traded pins are not fake (scrappers), and that they match what you thought you were trading for. Additionally, we check for flaws or defects, and if warranted, we send pictures for your final trade approval.
5. We Handle The Hard Conversations
There is nothing more uncomfortable than telling another trader that their pin is fake, and therefore, the trade needs to be cancelled. With P&P Trade Protection, you never have to worry about that. If there is a fake or a flaw, we communicate with the other trader. We even provide a curated Scrapper Pin Board and Pin & Pop's own Private Pin Board to ensure traders still get an opportunity to have a fun experience.
