Gotta say, 99 gamers is buy far the best trade site i've used.  i've managed to trade 17 games, and have gotten everything I wanted easily.

 

Can't recommend this site enough.

After not bothering with the site since I signed up in Jan 13 I decided to get into listing some things.  So far i've sold 3 items and bought 2. With the abuse of the condition descriptions, I think it'd be better if the pictures were required at listing rather than when they sell, but i'm guessing that takes a bit more work.  Other than that, I really like the site.

I've liked my experience with 99Gamers so far, but the buy limit is killing me. I'm selling mostly high value new stuff, and buying cheaper, old games. I'm stuck with no buys and 19 coins. None of the 10+ games I have listed are moving - whch sucks because despite being new, I've lowered a few of them to be the cheapest in all conditions. Still no movement.

Looks like they will redesigning the site in the coming months, adding some consoles/accessories, and doing some restrictions on new traders. They added 45,000 new traders in Jan

45,000 is alot! This time I'm going to sell games and spend up the coins. Ever since I loss so many points from Goozex on closing down, I don't want to sit on a bunch of virtual money!

I just recently purchased a game from someone on there for $15 cheaper than a lot worse condition I could find anyway. I'm definitely willing to start selling on there too.

Strange nobody put any recent Tales games on 99gamers, with 45,000 new members being given. I guess nobody likes JRPGs anymore?

Question:

Best way to ship DS games?

I am trading a lot of my DS games that are cart only.

Would you use a whole bubble mailer for just a cart?

cool to see a topic for 99gamers on here.  learned of the site from the jwitz youtube video about it.  sold a bunch of old gamecube games i didn't care about for some ps3 games.  bought my first one at the start of the year so it's helped me get flesh out my collection.  bought a few games like gta 4 & episodes from liberty city and assassin's creed black flag for 7 each.  good alternative to gamestop at times, specially with more recent games going for, at times, $10 or $15 lower after just a few weeks.  

i am sitting on 14 coins at the moment though im saving it for something good.  mainly waiting for stuff that peaks my interest

You can buy small bubble mailers smaller than 0 which would work

I have to say, I am not happy with the direction this site is going. It seems like the site is breaking in some way every day, which I could deal with in the past because the admins were pretty cool. However lately they've been showing signs of what made Goozex CS crap before that site's downfall. A near total lack of updates outside of the occasional response to a thread full of people complaining about it. And lately they have just been deleting threads en masse that have any hint of negativity, even if it's just constructive criticism or a joke, or hell people just asking questions about stuff they don't feel like talking about(like asking why the general discussion forums were removed)  the forums used to be a great little community, and unfortunately that isn't the case anymore.

I agree (chris100185), things have died at 99gamers.com, just like Goozex.  I give them credit for trying to expand, but I think they tried too much too quick, and have killed the community.

 

I have 200+ coins and stuff is so overpriced I'll never cash out with anything i want.

This is so true, I managed to trade my last game just after xmas, and managed to grab Walking Dead Season 2, to cash out.  Games started getting overpriced and staying that way for a long time, that it's just not worth it to deal with the hassle of trading.

 

Back before it took a major hit, it was amazing, I traded 26 or so games that I couldn't sell anywhere else, and got my wife a giant 3ds collection of all first party titles and a few games for myself.

Probably going to be cashing out myself. ugh. I hate it. VG5 was a little slice of awesome before the goozex owners decided to be sore losers and take it down with them. Now 99 is going down the tubes.

 

Are there any other good trading sites right now?

The site really feels like Goozex again. The expansion into non core items reminds me of the goozex exchange expansion. The clamp down on the forum for all except the "have faith, everything if fine" crowd has happend again. Now this 25% hit to the value of coins (1 coin/ $0.75) is just like the move goozex had to do when it more than doubled the celing price for games. Uncanny similar moves on both sites occured after inflation became an issue. Kinda  crazy in their similarity really.  All that's left is the funding from an investor being pulled and the site going down with everyones money. haha I don't think it will happen, but you never know. I guess I should be happy they forced me to spend down my huge balance from earlier this year.

 

Leaptrade has definitely picked up for me. It's not at the same volume as 99 but it's moving in a positive direction, while 99 may be going the opposite way.

Cag which you probably use, Nintendoage, Facebook sometimes, Gametz, heard good and bad things about Leaptrade.

leaptrade is a joke,  99% of the  vets have left , i think the owner of the site are dumping games into the site or requesting games just to make it  look like it has traffic. I been stuck with 40 bucks over there for  6 months . i see leaptrade folding way  before 99

I was following the 99gamers subreddit, but apparently the subreddit has been set to private.  There aren't many outlets left to discuss what is happening right now.
