Best sites to sell used dvds online.
I am an avid dvd collector and I have been buying and selling DVDs for many years. This Hub reviews the best places i have found who buy dvds.
But why sell your DVDs at all? Why are you going to buy if you are ultimately going to sell these off? We'll I can't say everyone should share this opinion but my decisions are fueled maybe not but sound money management but for my enthusiasm for collecting DVDs. History has proven most media trends downward in price over time. So the bottom line is if nobody in your home has watched dvd in a year…clear it out. Try something new.
There are many great sites who buy your used dvds or will help you sell them. But there is no definitive best place to sell. Many serve a different purpose depending upon the level of service you desire and your value on time spent selling. I will highlight the pros and cons of selling to the big guys and some surprise alternatives you may have never heard of.
EBay - is a well known auction site. Just about everybody knows you can sell your stuff and make money online at eBay. But it's not the only gig in town. There are other great places to sell your products online and make a few dollars. You can sell on consignment, auction, or list your items for sale outright on other sites that do not require a fee.
Google Base- You don't need a website to sell at Google Base. You can upload your entire store inventory and sell items through the most popular search engine on the Internet. Categories of products and services you can sell through Google Base include events and activities, products, recipes, vehicles, list jobs, reviews, services, and vacation rentals. And what's the best part about Google Base? It's free. The problem with Google Base? Sales volume. Like any new site that tries to break into eBay's territory it's hard to get the engine rolling because buyers want you go where the sellers are and he sellers want to go where the buyers are. And because Google base is new there are not many of either right now. But making your service free is a step to getting there.
Amazon.com - Amazon.com built a solid reputation for itself as an online bookseller. Amazon's "used" platform was originally modeled after half.com where sellers can choose to sell their own products on consignment. But in recent years the largest bookseller online has branched out to become the 800 guerrilla in media sales. Other sites like overstock.com model Amazon. The problem with Amazon: The learning curve and time required to get selling. Setting up and verifying your bank account and credit card. Creating a datafile to upload to their website. Organizing your incoming orders and email. Constant attention needs to be given to pricing. Even if you set your sell prices low, bigger professional sellers will swoop in with their computerized scripts and undercut your price by a penny. Amazon has been known to freeze new accounts if sales volume is heavy because red flags are triggered. There are understandably alarmed of having new fraudulent accounts opening and selling product without shipping. On Amazon you definitely will get orders but with the time required to overcome these barriers I recommend selling DVDs on Amazon for the very serious seller or the career seller.

Mx123.com - or Media Exchange 123 is in the business of buying your used DVDs and Blue Rays, CDs and video games in bulk. Consider this the easiest option. They give you a price quote through their website for your used DVDs and they will buy everything you have in one easy hassle free transaction. You get a free shipping label that you print out and stick on your box. Expect a payment by PayPal or check in two weeks after shipping to them.
I have been a long time satisfied seller of DVDs to second spin.com but I came across mx123.com by their funny Youtube videos. My informal price evaluation has led me to believe mx123 pays higher than secondspin.com on most items. The problem with MX123.com: Like any middleman you are not getting top dollar you would if you were selling your items directly on your own. And beware of other "buy back" cookie cutter websites popping up in this market niche. A degree of trust is required before sending your items off through the mail before receiving payment.
Craigslist - Craigslist is free to sell. No commissions, no fees, no hassle. Consider it a free internet classified service. Craigslist will help you hook up with someone in your local area. You work the payment details and the exchange with the buyer. You can list almost anything for sale or trade at Craigslist. Categories books, business, computer, furniture, jewelry, tickets, tools, arts & crafts, cars, CDs and DVDs, clothes, collectibles, farm and garden, toys, household goods, music instruments, videos. Some of the problems: I have found this ends up with many strangers knocking on my door or telephones ringing. You may not be comfortable with that. You have buyers showing up that want to cherry pick though the best items in your collection. Craigslist may best be used for items with a higher dollar value than DVDs. Craigslist is an informal channel for selling DVDs. Handle with care.
UBid.com - UBid helps companies sell excess inventory. If you are in the biz and looking for a new place to sell through, uBid is available.
Just about everybody knows you can sell your dvds and make money online at eBay. Consider these sites above an alternative to the "big E" and consider there are other great sites too that I missed here. Happy selling!
