“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

“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

“Zapper opinion”

Written on: 11/05/2013 by peterjbates (1 review written)

In general very good, but even better if alternative use of Royal Mail allowed for in cases like ours where the nearest Collect + point is more than 5 miles away, so making collection costly and inconvenient. It is frustrating when books disappear from and then return again to the wanted list - in some cases far better values are offered by both Amazon and WeBuyBooks. To counter that, many books are acceptable to Zapper that are not wanted by either Amazon or WeBuyBooks. £10 is a large… Read Full Review

“Surprisingly good service!”

Written on: 11/05/2013 by rubylove199 (1 review written)

I must admit to being sceptical as to whether or not I would actually receive the money for sending my DVD's to Zapper but decided to give it a try. The service was very good; took my parcel to a local shop on a Saturday and it was received by Zapper the following Tuesday. And no postage to pay! I did have to wait quite a long time for my cheque to arrive; almost 3 weeks from the date I took the parcel to the shop. But apart from that, I was delighted with the service and wouldn't hesitate to use… Read Full Review

“Really very easy”

Written on: 10/05/2013

Selling to Zapper was surprisingly easy and hassle free. They gave me a decent price for my stuff, the postal service was easy and they processed the order more quickly than other similar companies do. Perhaps my key tip would be to compare prices with other buy back companies, as Zapper paid more for some things but less for others. All in all though it was a very smooth and simple process and got me some extra pocket-money so I am happy… Read Full Review

“Quick, free, and easy!”

Written on: 02/03/2013 by GrajulJulia (1 review written)

Emptied our loft of books that hadn't seen the light of day for some time. Found Zapper through a search engine. Quite enjoyed checking the barcodes (simple things......) and found I could make quite a bit of money. The labels to put in and on the parcel came through by email within an hour or so and the great thing that I found was that I could decide when the courier would come and collect them. I received confirmation that they had been received the day after collection and received further… Read Full Review

“highly recommended”

Written on: 22/10/2012 by Ajay2012 (1 review written)

i have used Zapper four times now. i have got rid of a lot of books and discs and received £60. pros: efficient, polite/friendly/helpful staff, easy to use, free post service cons: you don't get much for your stuff (but better than nothing) and they can take a while to process parcel/ cheque (around 3 weeks from day of posting). but, overall, a very good service. i will use them again… Read Full Review

“My First Experience”

Written on: 19/10/2012 by robertholland (1 review written)

I found it easy to compile a list of items to submit to Zapper; the responses to my queries were prompt and concise. Things that I would like improved: the possibility of editing the order before I physically drop it off at the Post Office; changing the number of parcels (I ended up needing to add another parcel after submitting my order but it was unclear from the website how to remedy the situation quickly without contacting Zapper, which was a little bothersome as I was processing my order at… Read Full Review

Robertholland's Response to robertholland's Review

Written on: 19/10/2012

Thought I should mention that I used Zapper in conjunction Amazon as I found the site: offered better prices on certain items compared to the other sites I compared with at the time; and prices on items where other sites offered none.

“Does what it says but slowly”

Written on: 18/10/2012

Zapper performed well in most areas. The website was easy to use & it's prices were similar & in a few cases higher than other sites. The courier collection worked well, as was organised. I did get my cheque for the full amount ..... eventually & it is this time lag that stops Zapper from getting full marks. The whole process took about a month from finalisation of the list to receiving the cheque including 2 chasers from me. The CDs were collected and a week later they were still showing as… Read Full Review

“Good customer service.”

Written on: 10/10/2012

Positives - Instant pricing and swift payment. Negative - suggested one box but not suitable for weight of books on list so repackaging and a new service required. I have still recommended the service to friends/colleagues/students… Read Full Review

“zapper my review”

Written on: 09/10/2012

this service was very easy to use and my cheque only took around 2 and a half weeks to arrive from placing the order to money arriving. If you have old books,cd's & dvd's you no longer use and can't be bothered to do a carboot this is a good way to make some money. Rather than just take it to the charity shop the only negative is that i've noticed zapper have reduced alot of their prices. I know they have to make a profit but music magpie were higher on some items which is why I sent half my… Read Full Review

“Selling CDs and DVDs with Zapper”

Written on: 08/10/2012

I am impressed at how quickly I can list my cds and dvds. It also is excellent that I do not have to pay postage to them. They give a fair but low price for CDs and DVDs. They sometimes refuse DVDs but normally they are very common issues. I will use Zapper again, but at the moment I have reduced my collection considerably… Read Full Review

I've used Zapper twice. It's easy to use although some of my items were rejected even though they were in good order when I sent them. The price they give is low but was much easier than trying to car boot etc… Read Full Review
