    Zoverstocks Gone From Play? 29th Jun 11 at 8:48 AM
    I've got various cds/dvds listed on Play and as usual have Zoverstocks priced against me at 1p less.

    Checked my listings this morning and every Zoverstocks item has gone---we're talking around 30 items so they've not all sold.

    Had a look on Amazon and the same items were still being sold on there by Zoverstocks.

    So, have Zoverstocks pulled out of selling on Play?
    Waddle you do eh?

    Hmmm, Zoverstocks is the trading arm of Music Magpie. They are a pretty chaotic company and its all automatically processed with robots. They are still plodding merrily along though, received a cheque this morning

    Just checked my listings and they are back on all of them, 1p less as usual.

    Must have been some sort of overnight update.

    They're now selling on ebay as estocks. They have listed over 100,000 cd's over the last month or so. Already their feedback is taking a bit of a bashing. Mainly slow dispatch being at fault.
    I was initially irritated at their appearance on ebay as it would effect my business, but as it turns out buyers will probably get wise to their poor service.

    How would Zoverstocks business model of using robots to automatically undercut other sellers by 1p work on ebay?

    They don't seem to be doing it. Their prices are more random. At the cheap end they're at £1.27 inc postage. So on many cd's theyre clearly undercutting everyone by some distance but they overprice on quite a few too so to be honest Im not sure how they're choosing their prices.

    As they do not stock everything they list then they would need to to do this regularly in order to tidy up their listings!
