Amazon UK have been promoting their Trade In service to buyers recently. It’s quite a neat service. Have you seen it?
If you have previously bought an item on Amazon, you are invited to check out its valuation. It could be a book, DVD, CD or video game. If you like the price that Amazon offer, you can produce a label, send the item back to Amazon and receive an Amazon credit on your account.
It’s an ingenious way for buyers to get a bit back on something used but now unwanted without all the faff of selling on eBay. It also keeps the customer close from Amazon’s point of view as any money made will be spent with them again.
I’m unlikely to dip my toes in this particular reach of the Amazon. Looking at my recent Amazon purchases, mostly books needless to say, the max return fee I am offered is a measly 25p for one hardback book. Although some games and textbooks do seem to be attracting decent fees (opver a tenner), it’s not worth my while for a few pennies.
