    I have used Ziffit for the last 8 months it pays to check which of these site give the best price for items. My only reservation with Ziffit is that if the item does not meet their criteria they reportedly immediately destroy it. Their competitors at a cost to the seller will return the unacceptable items.
    Also I have found them to be slower to pay out compared to others

    I recently sold old books, DVDs and CDs to Music Magpie, WeBuyBooks, Ziffit and Momox.
    I have used Music Magpie in the past and have been happy with their service, although the payment used to be slow.
    Having discovered the other companies through the MSE webpage I entered the ISBN codes in all of them and simply sold to the one making the best offer.
    MusicMagpie and WeBuyBooks offer the easiest (free) postal service with home collection. Ziffit and Momox offer a drop-off service only.
    MusicMagpie confirmed receipt of the parcel exactly a week after it was collected and paid on the same day by bank transfer, accepting all the items. The payment was on my account the following day. Excellent service.
    WeBuyBooks and Ziffit confirmed receipt 6 days after posting. Ziffit accepted all the items on the same day, providing a Paypal payment. WBB took 3 working days to check the items (accepting them all) and provided payment by bank transfer immediately after. Both payments arrived on the same day.
    No news from Momox two weeks after posting. Since they are in Germany, however, they will naturally take longer.

    Update: I have just realized that you can get extra cashback on both Ziffit and MusicMagpie through TopCashBack so I will make sure to use this in the future.

    Ziffit - would not recommend (my opinion)

    I had a clear out last year and decided to give Ziffit a try instead of Music Magpie who I had used before. I had a vast array of music and DVDS and I was surprised that Ziffit quoted over 2 for some items. My items were in very good condition and one of which was a country and western compilation set of DVDS which were held in a good condition box cover also. Ziffit initially quoted me 2.54 for this. However as we know they wield the power stick once they check your items over. I then received the email from them listing what they would pay us for and low and behold the higher value items were not there. Ziffit said they were damaged and could not pay out on them. What a load of rubbish !! How come I was not surprised , too good to be true. Believe me it was in excellent condition as I look after my things and we wrapped every item in bubble wrap. So the initial value of 45 for all items went down to about 32. I bet they would sell the items on at good prices too. I personally would not use them again.

    I recently had a clear out of old Xbox 360 games and foreign language DVDs - I got a quote of 9.48 for 19 items from MusicMagpie. I checked on Ziffit for the same items and although it would only accept 14 of them, I got 12.27. Some of the items were offered at twice the amount on Ziffit compared to MusicMagpie, so I'm happy with that

    Received the money by PayPal 8 days after sending my stuff off

    I always use Ziffit for selling old books and dvd's! Compared to other sites that buy books and dvd's, every time I have checked and done a comparison Ziffit always pays the best. I do find that quite often there will be a number of the items that I'm getting rid of that they won't accept, but they still accept a substantial amount of them and pay out a decent amount. I always try selling on eBay first personally, but if I have items that just aren't selling then I will use Ziffit. They have plenty of drop-off points you can use and they keep you well up to date with the process and transfer the money quickly once the items have been accepted.
