“Used to use them, but not any more”

Written on: 09/06/2014 by GuillermoBrady (1 review written)

At one time I was really enthusiastic for this site, and sent them all my old stuff. But the delays between them receiving the parcels, and paying out was infuriating. Nice enough people on the phone when I phoned to grumble, but have now moved to a rival of theirs which pays much more promptly. Which is a real pity, as I have no complaints about their site or its prices, but they really have to up their game on payout times… Read Full Review

“Dreadful. Avoid”

Written on: 05/06/2014 by Malloy12 (1 review written)

People want payment not promise. It's unacceptable for Zapper to take 5 weeks to send a cheque on a small trade when competitors can achieve the same in 5 days. I've used Zapper once. Never again. I'm concerned that they have cash flow or solvency difficulty. Poor communication and delay is not a convincing business model… Read Full Review

“Slow process”

Written on: 01/05/2014 by Spears136 (1 review written)

The website is easy to use and there are convenient drop off points. Those are the good points. The bad points: they don't pay much for items and cheques take the full 21 days to be issued and printed. Then you have to wait for them to be posted and arrive. Plus when you contact customer services they say the cheque has been posted when it hasn't because you get an email two days later to say your cheque has only just been printed. Still at least it's a way of getting a little cash back in the… Read Full Review

“Strangely inconsistent”

Written on: 28/09/2013 by Malcolm273 (1 review written)

Entered book barcodes and was offered 20p each for first two, remainder not wanted. Later, going back to the site, I entered the same books, in a different order, and was again offered 20p for the first two (which were previously not wanted) and the remainder were again not wanted - including the two previous worth 20p !!! This happened several times. So is this a deliberate policy to initially offer a pittance to suck you in to the system, or a glitch, or what ? Obviously 20p is not of… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/05/2013 by MikeM2013 (1 review written)

I sent in around 30 items. I was told 3 of these were damaged and as such would not get paid for them. 1 of these items was the most valuable in the pack, and was definitely not damaged. It was infact, new, unwatched. The other 2 were also unwatched and in perfect condition. Apparantly, they were damaged in transit. The box itself was packed to the brim, nothing could have possibly moved around, and these items in particular, being the most valuable, were packaged in the securest… Read Full Review

“Overall better value than some other sites”

Written on: 18/05/2013

Out of around 100 books including fiction and non-fiction which I wanted to sell to Zapper, the site accepted only about 20. (Which was still better than some other websites). However in terms of price many of the other websites offered slightly better rates for individual books… Read Full Review

“Prices getting worse”

Written on: 16/05/2013

Prices seem to be dropping to about 25p for most books and CDs. Becoming very difficult to make up a £10 order due to low offer prices so should move to minimum number of items rather than value to complete a sale like Music Magpie. If a sale can't be completed in 7 days then open list is reviewed by Zapper and items are usually rejected by Zapper as no longer required. This makes the process of finding the average 35-40 items required to complete a sale more difficult. Frustratingly, if… Read Full Review

“Easy, Convenient & No problems”

Written on: 14/05/2013

I found the process of using Zapper easy & what they offered me for my items was better than other buyers I had tried. I only had to take my parcel to my local shop, for the courier they organised,to collect it. They contacted me the next day, to let me know they had received it & then again, once my delivery had been checked. I didn't have to wait too long before I received my cheque. The transaction went smoothly & I have recommended to my friends & will to you. I will be using again in the… Read Full Review

“Much improved”

Written on: 14/05/2013

On the negative side; only take a small proportion of what's offered. But a great deal more than in the past. And have at long last sorted their website out. Could do with offering a bit more for Cd's and DVDs. However compared with other sites they have now gone from bad to pretty good. Keep on improving (still room) it make life much more pleasurable… Read Full Review

“Sell sell sell”

Written on: 13/05/2013

Zapper offered excellent rates for my unwanted items, so much so that Zapper gave me 75% more for my things than music magpie! Do I need to say anymore. The Web site easy to navigate and use, and if your item is not required instead of offering you a pittance of a few pennies they give you a comprehensive reason as to why they do not need your unwanted CD's etc. Once you have accepted their offer, its as easy as printing a label, boxing the sold items, they even give you instructions on the… Read Full Review

“Good but....”

Written on: 13/05/2013

Good that they buy your old CDs/DVDs and books but their prices are not really tempting at all. However, if you are in short of money, it is somewhere you can cash some money in. One other thing not good about Zapper is that they take 2 weeks to send you the cheque!!!… Read Full Review

“well worth it”

Written on: 13/05/2013

Great to be able to offload unwanted cds dvds and books that might not sell on amazon or ebay and be guaranteed a return on them. A pity older items not accepted even if in very good condition or barcodes not recognised which seems strange! Without courier pick ups it means amount of items sold is limited unless you have means of transporting them to pick up points. But still worked well for me and will use it again in future. … Read Full Review

“so easy to sell ”

Written on: 12/05/2013

i was reccomended to zapper by a good friend and i easily found zapper on the internet i loved the way it guided me through the rules of selling my unwanted books and dvd's i think the entering of the bar codes is so much fun it feels very professional and somehow reassuring when it tells you how much you could get for you're item and if there were to many of the item it was that easy i will certainly be using zapper again… Read Full Review

“improvements needed”

Written on: 12/05/2013

good- displays book title, only £10 minimum poor - very low prices, prices change too frequently and books drop off list. I have had a book accepted and then withdrawn within two minutes, I have had price change from price quoted before log in to that after log in moments later. This is unfair and misleading. I have taken weeks to get £10 of stuff together - due to low prices and items being deleted. I have had an item deleted which I have immediately re submitted and got accepted again… Read Full Review

“get easy cash for your old stuff”

Written on: 12/05/2013

This is a very easy way to get a bit of cash for your old cds,games,dvds and books. The cash soon mounts up,it looks a little to start with but you will surprised by the total. Just pack in a box ( which you should get before you start),then follow the instructions, pack,send off( which is free) and wait for the cheque to arrive. You are updated when items arrive,when checked and when your cheque is dispatched Have used 3 times now and have had no problems, i would recommend to all. … Read Full Review
