Finally got my first one acknowledged as received - no payment yet though.

So that first one took 8 days just for them to get - granted, there was a holiday mixed in there.

I've sent in about 4 orders and about 15ish games so far with no issues. No tracking sucks, but I get confirmation they received it in about a 5-6 days and payment about 2 days after that.

Could you let me know what games you sent in? Most of mine aren't worth sending in.

I've been taking advantage of the latest b2g2/b2g1 BB & GS deals, today I took advantage of the GS extra 25% off used wii titles and picked up Disney Universe, Lego Harry Potter, & Rayman Origins. You can trade in multiples of the same game if you submit different orders. My submission today looks like this:

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 (Sony Playstation 3, 2011)
by Warner Bros. Interactive
UPC: 883929187850
VeryGood $20.71

Rayman Origins (Sony Playstation 3, 2011)
UPC: 008888346852
VeryGood $30.05

Rayman Origins: Episode 1 (Wii, 2011)
UPC: 008888176855
VeryGood $24.54

Disney Universe (Wii, 2011)
UPC: 712725018818
VeryGood $16.41

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 (Wii, 2011)
UPC: 883929186457
LikeNew $24.64

Resistance 3 (Sony Playstation 3, 2011)
UPC: 711719817628
LikeNew $18.00

Order Total $134.35
Paid via PayPal

Madden 12 & NCAA 12 still get pretty good TIV, Lego HP: Yrs 5-7 gets good TIV, Sonic Generations is decent, Dark Souls is around 18 as is Disney Universe. Those are the main ones I've been targeting.

This post refers to a question I have. So I created two orders for my two copies of Harry Potter, since as far as I can tell you cannot send in multiples in one order.

The question is: Can I send the two games in one package to save on shipping material? And include the second order's shipping note inside the package to show proof of the second order?

I can't state for certain that you can't, but it seems like asking for trouble. You don't have any boxes/envelopes you can reuse?

I have sent in about ten (10) games this year, and they are usually very fast with payment. From my own experience, they DID pay me on the same day I received the confirmation email. If not, the next day.

question, does 2 of the same product per quarter mean 2 of a certain game or two of a certain game per console?

Two (2) of a certain game per console from my own experience

Considering how it is so UPC-based (where you can't even look up games by name) I would assume that is a risky thing to try.

I think they'd either return it back to you or give you the acceptable price.

I will give it a try:
Warhammer 40k: Space Marine (PS3) -$22.xx
Rage (PS3) - $12.00

Both more than what I paid for them.

You CAN look up games by title. Just search for the game in the main search bar, navigate to the page with the game listings and info, click on "Sell my copy" towards the upper right, and click on "Instant Sale." :D

OK, I never did find a way to get to Instant Sale from the web page at all - I always had to use the link in the OP (which I made a bookmark of course). I didn't want to get into a whole thing here but I thought the web site was very poorly designed. And I say this as a long-time eBay user (just never did the Half side of it). I saw the "Sell my copy" button but I always just assumed that would set it up for regular sale and I didn't want to do that with these games.

So, yeah, I was using eBay to look up the UPC's (if I didn't have the game handy) and then entering that into the link in the OP ;).

Just got paid today as well so it took a week (including the July 4 holiday too).

I have another question. It says 10 shipments total for the instant trade-in program. If I cancel a shipment, it doesn't count towards the 10 right? That's what I'm thinking, but I want to make sure.

Only the ones that are shipped and paid are counted toward the quarterly limit.

Are those quarters every three months after the month when you started trading or set (Jan-Mar; Apr-Jun; etc)?

Posted 07 July 2012 - 10:15 PM

Hmmm - I probably should have combined more stuff as I'm already at 5 - mostly one game at a time because I didn't fully trust it. I still have only been paid for 1 so far. I'm waiting on a couple others some of which have been going on 8-9 days now. Just like with Amazon trade-in, it probably all depends on how close you are to their processing center - especially given that some of them have gone via media mail (which is risky as they could get rejected by the PO since games can't go via media mail). Why can't any of this crap ever be on the West Coast? ;)

Wait you can only do 5 trade orders total? Or unlimited orders and 5 games per order?

I was referring to the posts above mine which mentioned 10 orders per quarter. I was just saying I could have combined my 5 orders into probably 2 pretty easily and thus still had 8 more left. I never meant to imply any sort of limit of 5 - just that I was already half way to their supposed limit without even doing much yet.

So it's orders and not just individual games? I thought it was 10 different games with a limit of 2 of the same title.

Never mind. I found the FAQ that explains it the best.

http://pages.half.eb..._questions.html

Is there any limit to the number of items I can sell in the Half.com Instant Sale program?
Yes, there is a limit of 10 sales per user, per quarter. A sale can be made up of multiple items. Each seller is also limited to selling a maximum of 2 of the same product per quarter.
