I sold Sleeping Beauty for a decent price but - weirdly - there are 2 different buyer addresses. One was listed in the email I got from ebay and there was a different shipping addy listed in the paypal email :? So I asked the seller to confirm their address.

£3.72 for a 4 disc set,by the time ebay/paypal take their cut and you pay postage you've probably made about 50p :icon_suspect: you should have traded it at CEX,they were giving a fiver for it.

For some things, yes, for other things, no. If you pick the items you sell carefully, you can make a little money from it.

I was thinking of selling my Myth LE (avant garde) to clear space and then getting the BD, how much do you reckon it would cost to sell and I'd get for it? (is it worth it?)

this guy wants £20,maybe you'd get £15 or so.It's not one of Jackie's more popular efforts.

Thanks :)
My bad, actually is the "Avant Garde Collectors Edition" which is the one that guy has in a big box plus lots of LE stuff (or maybe its the same one).
I was only thinking, selling it may be a hassle as its big, thats all.

The HK LE seems to have the commentary which the BD doesnt have.

and you can copy a commentary instantly, no need to keep a disc for one of them.

Good point - once possibly...
The edition is limited to 5000 or something so I'm sure I'll get something for it if I put RARE! OUT OF PRINT! in the listing.

the fact you've had this disc for a couple of years and haven't bothered listening to it yet should point you in the right direction.

Listed it now.
Put £20 BIN which I know is the same as that other person wanted, but I dont think his had all the LE stuff, I'll see what happens with it.

Is a jiffy bag OK to send it in or will it need extra bubble wrap?

The bottom has fallen out of the DVD market. Most DVDs on Play go for peanuts (less than £5) and many titles I would use to get easily over a tenner for previously, I struggled to get £7-8 for now.

Salty: Do you sell your DVDs on Play abroad, as well as the UK? I have been but given the low price, after postage I'm making no money. I reckon next time, I'm going to just sell on Play within the UK. It's not worth selling to other parts of Europe.

Most of mine sold but for so much less than I was expecting.

I've done that twice now and both cost over double to post to Europe and thus both I ended up costing me money, only pennies but obviously completely pointless selling them. If I do choose to ship to the mainland, I'll add some proper postage, at leas then I won't be selling at a loss.

I just sell mine at the local second hand store. You don't get much but what can you do with shit nobody wants? I'm off tomorrow so anybody want anything from my list speak now or forever hold your peace!
Bradavon: As probably the only guy on this forum who has snogged another man (3 times in fact), it didn't do a lot for me but I didn't hate it either. Who doesn't like a snog?

Is it safe to bank transfers on ebay?
When I sold an item just now, the guy asked if he could use bank transfer as a payment method, I have that method listed but I was so used to using paypal.

I sold a BD to a seller last week (sent on 28th) and they still havent left me feedback yet like other sellers have. I hope they dont think I didnt send it :?
I contacted the seller but they havent responded yet.
