The internet has been touted as many things since its inception and has grown to be a great money maker. From blogging to surveys to selling, the number of opportunities seems to continually grow. The latest to break onto the scene in the United States is musicMagpie.
What is it?
In days gone by, selling via Amazon and eBay had been championed as the best option when it comes to de-cluttering and selling things in the home. Now, musicMagpie, makes it easier – and possibly a little fun – to get money for your old CDs, DVDs and games.
Having taken over the market across the pond in the United Kingdom, the boundaries have been opened to us in the US. Millions of people use the service each year and the ease and speed that people can free up space and money has brought about its success.
How does it work?
Sell, send and get paid. It’s a simple three-step process that is fool proof. First up, you input items using a free scanner app if they have barcodes into the valuation engine before being given a price. Electronics and tech products require an honest description.
After this, it is time to send your items. Everything is fully insured and you have two options with regards to how things are sent. If you are sending more than 25 items or a heavy electronic/tech item then you get a free courier service and for anything less there is a free send service from local shops.
From here all that’s left is payment. Once the products have been received and checked, you will be paid in the form of cheque, e-voucher or bank transfer. All you need to do now is repeat with the rest of your clutter to make money and space! It’s that easy. Cha-Ching.
According to the website “we see it as our mission to help our customers sell their unwanted items quickly and easily to make a little extra money” and that is absolutely the primary aspect. Check reviews online and you will see a 96% customer satisfaction rating from around 30,000 users.
It’s always nice to get a little bit extra though, and that’s what both the entertainment blog and Twitter are all about. So, don’t just be a user to sell things hassle free but be part of the community they are building and let the world know that you’ve “musicMagpie’d” your stuff.
