And I wouldn't want it to be, but if Goozex specifies that you will ship it within 1 to 3 days... and you don't do it till I PM you, and you state that you won't for another 3 freaking days.... that's after waiting 3 damn weeks for it.
I'm not stating that they should send out in 1 day... hell I would say 5 days is fine, but two weeks no communication, no nothing and I'd still have to wait longer because he stated he won't even do it till the weekend.
and the only excuse is "I'm LAZY".
That is the only entire thing that I can see that could be changed, if people don't send out games, the trading stops.... it's a defacto standard of what Goozex machine runs on...
I didn't say in Goozex that "I want the game but I don't want you to send it to me" option...
nope, I looked again... didn't see that option.
Complaints about shipping on goozex are probably better off on the goozex forums, not in a deal thread about goozex points.
For anyone still confused about goozex I can offer this simple comparison as a relatively new (and very satisfied user)
Most trade sites - you want a game, you have a game. YOu need to find someone who
1. wants your game
2. is willing to trade the game you want
3. has a good rep
goozex is very different. they do not do 1-1 matching
1. you put up games you want to trade
2. you list games you want
goozex software matches you to distinct buyers and sellers. Goozex "point" = 1 point for 1 "buy". the point is the cost of the service of goozex finding BOTH a buyer and a seller for your big ass list.
I have been dumping a lot of 100-200pt games. For me it is worth it because those games were sitting on my shelf doing nothing. I only dump games I amd 99.9% done with. While it's nice to have 200 XBOX1 games sitting on my book shelf, 170 of them are games I will likely never touch.
I was all "hmm I'm interested in Neverwinter Nights 2" So I dump 6 100pt games that I have no interest in, someone else gets to play them. Then I get a "like new" copy of NWN2 complete w/ book and CD key in tact.
For me, that is a good deal. I don't mind shipping out games at $1.90 each So for ~ $12 cost to me, I got to
1. receive a Like New mint condition game I want
2. got rid of my old games I did not want
3. increased my trader reputation which allows me to buy and sell more
However as many other CAGs have mentioned, goozex is a fantastic service for those interested in "flipping"
Me, I work all day and don't have the time to flip. I also live in CA so sales tax here is a real pain. Gas is expensive here, and stores near my like BB/target/CC etc.. have terrible deals compared to other parts of the country.
For me, flipping here would require a lot of Ebay so I dont bother. But if you have the time and know how, you can flip on goozex and make money. You wont get money from goozex, but you can maximize your dollar via ebay or other sale sites.
Now if you sign up to Goozex expecting to get Fallout 3 5 days after release for $1, that aint gonna happen
As others mentioned, if you want INSTANT gratification, you need to shop retail or ebay or whatever.
Trading, by it's very nature is about patience and persistence.
