    Selling DVDs to Music magpie, Ziffit, best price? 17th May 17 at 11:04 AM
    I have a load of dvds I need to sell, I know there are several website but all offering different prices for them, Is there a site that compares the buying price of a dvd, so far I scan then using a app but it gives you a offer price and puts it in your basket, its so time consuming and if your not happy with a price you need to edit your basket, it just takes me ages, any advice please?

    thanks

    I just keep all the sites open in my browser and copy and paste the barcode number into each one. Yes, I then have to delete the item from the sites with the lowest price, but it doesn't really take that long. I actually find it quicker to do it like that than use the apps even with me having to type the number in rather than scanning the barcode.

    What are the best sites to use? I currently use music magpie and Ziffit, Ziffit will only let me sell 1 dvd (I have 2 copies of some dvds and will not accept 2 copies on 1 account)

    I use my mobile as it was just a case of scanning the bar code, I may try to input the code on my laptop and see what sites offer the best price.

    What sites can I se other than Music magpie and Ziffit,

    Thanks

    Have no experience of them so don't know if they are any good.

    Do make sure you sign up to the newsletters of webuybooks and ziffit as they frequently offer codes that give you 10 - 20% more for your items.

    Also if you have any DVD box sets see if each DVD has its own case and barcode. If so it is worth checking both the price for the set as well as the prices for each DVD separately. You can get more selling them separately sometimes.

    I have been using these sites for ages and have only had one problem with them. If you have anything obscure it is worth checking whether you can get more on ebay.

    it's not perfect. sometimes tells you a site offers more than it does but gives you a good idea.
