The person selling the game sends you the unlock code via PM. I recently got Braid this way.

Thank you.:D

If anyone has any other point changes, please let me know. I like to activate my own games when the point values drop significantly.

Also, I discovered today that it helps to weigh your own games if you use Paypal shipping from the site. Goozex calculated a much higher weight for a game that I'm sending, and it would have cost me about $3 more to ship if I hadn't weighed it myself.

You probably shouldn't be using the Goozex Paypal shipper at all unless they've gotten rid of the extra Goozex fee they had on it.

You can use Paypal shipping directly by using the backdoor link as mentioned in a very famous Goozex thread. The link to Paypal is in the OP, or here.



(Update: From the Goozex automatic postage label thread)

How we calculate the cost?
The cost of shipping packages via USPS is determined on the overall package weight, distance from buyer to seller, and type of postage (first class vs. priority). Goozex is working with third party vendors to provide this service and there is a small service fee to help cover Goozex expenses to deliver shipping labels to you.

I'm not sure how much their small service fee is, but it's more than free, and they're not exactly "delivering shipping labels" to anyone...

Shipping is typically 60 to 70 cents more if I use the Goozex shipping method, and print their label. I figure it's worth it to me, since I don't have to lose my parking spot in the garage at work, and have to wait 20 minutes in line at the post office.

I will be investigating the postage directly from Paypal, though, and making my own shipping labels from now on.:D

Goozex's fee seems to be a dollar from the time I used it to switching over to multi-label printing over at Paypal's site. I'm guessing their service is really only delivering the tracking info to the buyer the minute you make the label.

I saved 69 cents by shipping a game directly through Paypal today. Delivery confirmation is only 19 cents, compared to 75 cents at the post office or through Goozex.

Also, I'm getting a bit frustrated by the release date that Goozex has for Red Faction: Guerrilla. The game came out yesterday, but Goozex still has June 30 listed. I want to put the game into my queue already!!!:bomb:

The value on FF7 begins to plunge. I might still pick it up if it drops low enough, to have in the collection.

And does anyone know why the ps2 version of MvC2 is staying the same, while the XBox version is going up? I find that wierd.

If you check in the main thread discussing the change, the Goozex Team is using Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (Xbox) as a test to see what the new cap will do to standard edition games with exceedingly high demand. The results will help them determine whether or not it's worthwhile to extend the new cap to standard packages in addition to limited edition or collector's packages.

I like how their pricing seems more reasonable now. I'm not sure if the cap is what caused it, but a bunch of stuff on my wants dropped down to 100-300 points. I have like 10 games coming! :O

I don't know why, but I get nervous every time my account drops below 5000 points haha. I wish they'd run a trade credit sale soon.

I sent out a game that worked for me, the buyer says it doesn't install for him. He hasn't left me a negative, and I agreed that I will take the game back and either replace it or return the points. He asked me to cancel before he sends it back, but that doesn't look like a hot idea from my end. What is the proper protocol in this situation?

First have him return it to you. I wouldn't send a replacement or cancel the trade until I had the old one back first. If he doesn't agree to that, you'll have to work something else out.
