I recently sent in 2 games separately and got credit in my account for them which was brilliant. I have about 10 games i could trade in but getting the packaging for each game is the problem. I have been using cardboard boxes and was wondering could i send about 5 games in the one box to save hassle and for Amazon, postage costs?

Yes, you can send all of them together.

Anything in particular you need to do? I can put all the printed labels inside the box for each game and their address label on outside of box

When you print off the postage label you will get another sheet with the prices of the games which you put in the box you dont need them all seperately, put all in one box and put the postage label on the box and take it to the post office and wait for your cash to be put in your account. (remember to put the part of the print out with the prices in the box ok)

Hope this explains it for you.

I see they are currently offering a mighty £7 for PS3 copies of Borderlands 2. Thanks all the same Zon, but I'll stop at CEX on the way home and take £28 cash instead.

I've said it in other threads so I'll say it in this one.

Don't trade in your games with Amazon...sell them here instead.

Take Triggers point about Borderlands 2 for PS3 for could sell that for 31.99 on here!!! Take off the cut that Amazon where near the amount you lose when trading and you're laughing.

Sell 10 game separately all well within a week I bet. Seal them in jiffy bags and post away. Job done, money in your account shortly afterwards....loads of it!

Also ebay is a good source of making money from old games. Most of the time you will beat trade-in prices! - Especially if your willing to ship worldwide.

Where is the best place to sell xbox console? Thinking of just sticking to PS3 from now on. Play mostly multi platform games and prefer the PS3 exclusives anyway so wanna clear a bit of room

Provided the item I'm trying to sell is listed on Amazons listings, I'll always try to sell here first.

The reason I do this is because:

1) I don't have to provide a product description/photos of any kind.
2) I won't have my time wasted listing products and dealing with people only out to scam you.
3) Amazon is a good middle man, I have sold near on 40 items and I have never had a problem.
4) I can set my price based on what other market place sellers are selling for and adjust accordingly, any time until the product sells.

If you prefer of course you could try ebay or gumtree. Personally, I've only tried Ebay and Amazon and I can say that ebay was the most time consuming method. It worked in most cases but I did find I spent a lot of time answering questions about products I was listing...something you will certainly be doing if you are selling a console.

I sold my Xbox last year on it was one of the old-style arcade consoles. I sold it to someone that was looking for a replacement to his console that had just had the RROD (and I got a lot of questions about mine - exchanged about 5-6 emails before he finally decided to buy it). I ended up selling it for £100, and because I kept the money on my Play account rather than transferring it to my bank account, I only had to pay about £3 in fees. Only thing with is that you can't charge for P&P so I had to account for that in the price I sold it for. But people were selling the console for much less on here at the time (think the lowest price was about £75) so was still better off selling it on Play.

Just wanted to praise Amazon a bit, I sent in SotC on ps2 and said it was in good condition expecting £12.70, sent it on Monday and today had £16.90 in my account, they said upon inspection the game was like new, Bingo!

cooll, but companies give rubbish rates for sending in collectors editions, even ones still in the packaging, and companies are like everything is standardised, if you have a game called this, then its worth this, CE or no CE, so better off me selling stuff on ebay which is what i do now.

shame you dont always get good rates for stuff thats in good condition or special in some way :(

im annoyed at Play that they became a private seller company only, i much preferred when they got their own stock in and sold it. i find the play stuff a rip-off now since its all private..
