Entered bar code for a brand new DVD boxed set of 'The Sopranos'. Retail price 135, sale price 65.
Zapper offered 3 :-(
Flogged it on Ebay for 45 inc postage.
Tried some books. No result.
Won't be trying again.

Got a quote for 28 items on Money Magpie and all were accepted. Then tried to do a comparison on Zapper and only the first 2 were accepted. Apparently, they had too many of the other items! What a waste of time!

Unhappy CD's not accepted

Thought I would look into this site as MSE had said it had limited feedback. Typed in a handful of CD bar codes and it just didn't accept any of them. I say, take your CD's to your local charity shop and let them make some profit as this site (Zapper) has no interest in your CD's

Thanked 7 Times in 4 Posts

I had good results from Zapper in early 2012 but recently it's rejecting practically everything I throw at it. The same things are rejected as Webuybooks so it appears they use the same database. When the odd book is accepted, Zapper offers about one-third to a half of what Webuybooks offers, so it's not even doing well on price. Supply and demand I guess.

Don't bother with them, they told me my cheque was posted 30/08/13 and would take 14 days - not sure which postal service they use to post cheques that takes that long but its now 22/09/13 and still no cheque

emailed and promised me on the way but still no cheque

Will post update when received cheque
All hail the Jack Daniels Swozzler!
