I was looking into trading Resistance 3 and amazon was giving $2.50 so I decided to list the game on half.com. When I went to their site I notice their new program of "Instant Sale" which is exactly the same as amazon.com's trade in program except you can get paid with a half.com gift card (which comes with a 15% trade in bonus) or you can trade your item for paypal cash. A label for free shipping is provided.

Resistance 3 is getting $18 paypal cash which is way more than amazon, best buy or gamestop.

TIV may be worth it on other items... including books, movies and music.

http://sell.half.eba...fInstantSaleHub

Edit: The easiest way to find the item you want to trade is to search the item as if you want to buy it. When you get to the item page where you can choose which copy you want to buy and click on "Sell My Copy", this will give you the option to either "trade the item" or sell it through the website.

Edit 6/16/12: Right now Sonic Generations (360) is getting $28 paypal cash or $31.xx half.com credit

Instant trade = Sell It Now feature they had for awhile.

Someone who wants the title puts in a price they'd auto buy it at...used to be when listing you could take the offer or just continue with listing.

No offer = you'd have to list it as normal

What are you talking about? That's not what it is. This is something similar to amazon where all the stuff that is shipped goes to a main hub and is checked by a third party.

I am shocked nobody has figured it out. I just checked games like Gears of War 3 and it is getting $15.50, Uncharted 3 is getting $23.10, FIFA 12 (PS3) is getting $22.40. Those TIV are very reasonable.

Glad you found a good deal, all the games I was thinking about trading were really not that good of value. Even the Orange Box was only like $13 Like New.

I have checked the Instant Sale feature before when selling on half.com, but the offers were always less than I could sell it for. However, I did just get good deal on two games. Sold them Warhammer Space Marine 360 for $16.xx Paypal, and Hulk Hogans Main Event disc only for $10.xx Paypal. Not too shabby since I paid less for each and couldn't sell or trade them anywhere else for more, as far as I could find.

I've sold on Amazon for years, but I'm willing to give this a shot. As a test run, I just sent in three Madden 2012s(one from each console) from that recent bestbuy.com $10 DotD. They all go for $20-$25ish.

To help others out, I'm going to do a trade in value list as I'm scanning my games. And to make it easier for me, this is the half.com credit value, so subtract 15% for actual cash (paypal) value. The default I'm choosing is the games being in like new condition. So to sum it up:

Like new condition
Subtract 15% for actual cash (paypal) value

Bolding anything of interest and/or over $10
Current prices as of 6/6/12
Can only sell what seems to be 10 total times in a quarter of a year, with 10 items per time, so at max 100 items in a quarter, unless I'm reading the FAQ wrong.

I would never do business with half.com. I sent in barely used textbooks to the third party vendor and they would make claims like torn cover, missing pages, unuseable. It would come back with none of there claims and half customer service is useless.

After researching, I notice the vendors are also sellers on half.com. Returns are probably because the value of the item dropped and they are losing their cut.

Stay away from these guys....

Sent in 6 brand new/sealed games (purchased from bestbuy) In 2 separate orders, 3 games per order, 1 wii, 1 xbox, 1 ps3, all same game (disney universe). the wii version was paid out from both orders, and only of of the xbox versions was paid. The other 2 ps3 games, and 1 xbox version were rejected for being "unauthorized copies". Just got back today in the mail 1 ps3 and 1 xbox version that was rejected, which are now opened and back of the case is covered in labels. the xbox cash is cracked and missing pieces.

At the very least, if they are going to deny a trade in, why even open a game up that is brand new w/ factory seal. So dishonest imo. Will not be using this scam of a company again (not half.com, the trade ins are sent to some third party company named Elovations)
