    Alternatives to Music Magpie for selling DVD's?

    After clearing out a load of DVD's off the shelf, I'd like to try and get a few quid for them. While music magpie is a quick and simple solution, they can be less than generous with what they will offer you. I have a fair old pile of DVD's too so listing each one on eBay can be a bit of a killer. Any suggestions on ways to easily sell my DVD's while still ensuring I get a acceptable bit of cash for them? I'm not expecting thousands, just something better then 25p a time!!!

    List up what you have, what the retail value is, and what you would like to get, and if you are open for negotiation on someone wanting more than 1 DVD.

    Music Magpie were ridiculous, and if HMV werent going bust, I'd say go to them, they offered the best trade in prices of all companies (including cash converters, cash generator, cex, blockbuster etc)

    Amazon? Either directly to them or through their marketplace...

    1. Find DVD on website
    2. Check used prices
    3. List your DVD for lowest used price minus 1p.

    That's a shame!

    I also have quite a few DVDs that I want to get rid of, but I have come to the conclusion that they are essentially worthless now and it will cost more to post them than what I will actually get for the DVDs themselves. If you can only get 25p for them is it actually worth the time and effort?

    I suppose a few quid is better than nothing. If I have a bit of spare time at the weekend I'll create a thread in the classified forum.
