Every so often I get a question about where is the best place to sell my Skylanders. While it's a little bit sad to see someone leave the Skylanders family, it is still my main goal to help you the best that I can.
Typically, I would tell you that, if you want to maximize your profit, you should sell your figures individually on eBay. However, I understand that that can be a lot of work to list, package, and ship a lot of figures separately, not to mention all the fees that go along with it.
So today I would like to present you with an alternative.
Trade4Cash.com is a company that will buy your Skylanders directly from you. I have personally used them to get rid of a few doubles I had laying around the house.
In addition to Skylanders, Trade4Cash also buys:
If you use the Promo Code: SCL during checkout I will get a small commission. But even better, they will give you an extra 10% more cash on your first order.
So how does it all work?
This may seem a little counterintuitive, but you actually add the items that you want to sell to your cart.
You'll have to select a condition for each item (the definitions of each condition are explained well on the site) and they will adjust the price accordingly.
NOTE: Because they pay for shipping, there is a $10 minimum order, but $10 is not hard to reach.
When you confirm your order (or Proceed to Checkout), you will need to provide your name and mailing address. Here you will also select how you would like to be paid. These options include:
PayPal is obviously the fastest way to get paid, but you still have options.
Once you agree to their terms and click Place Order Now, you will be taken to a page where you can print off a packing slip and a prepaid shipping label.
That's right. They pay for shipping.
Print off the Packing Slip and be sure to include it with your order. This will greatly speed up the evaluation process once they receive your order.
Find a sturdy box and pack up your items with bubble wrap or old newspaper. It doesn't really matter what you use as long as the items are secure.
Print off the prepaid Shipping Label and tape it to the outside of the box. Drop the box off at any USPS location and the hard part is done.
If you made it this far, you should have already received a few emails from Trade4Cash. I was very impressed with how informed they keep you. You'll get emails throughout the entire process. These include:
Each of these emails will update you on when has been done and what will be done next. If they need any further action from you (which is rare) they will let you know right away.
So whether you're looking to get rid of your entire collection or you just have a handful of figures you want to get rid of quickly, Trade4Cash is a great option.
Don't forget to use Promo Code: SCL to get your extra 10%.
And as always, please let me know if you have any questions.
