eBay – the first place everyone thinks of when selling anything whether it be clothes, toys or electricals and for that reason can be a great place to sell. You can create your own listings and pick your own prices and it is likely you’ll get the most for your money. However, creating your own listings can be timely having to take and upload your own photos, fill out endless details and descriptions and communicate with potential buyers, not to mention there being no guarantee of a sale. If you are lucky enough to sell, you’ll have to pay high postage fees to protect your shipment and trust your buyer. The same goes for most marketplaces.
Then there’s the option of going into your local games store to find out if they will accept your trade in, but that involves leaving the comfort of your own home and wait around whilst they check your things over and all the while you’re unsure of how much you’ll even get and even so, the best offer they’ll give you is to try and persuade you to trade in for store credit.
