Simple, straightforward and kept up to date as to what stage the process has reached.
It was easy to use. It took quite a while for the cheque to come through, but other than that is was an easy way to clear out some old CD's and DVD'S
Reelle Preise. Einfache Abwicklung. Guter Service.
Leicht vertsändlich und Hut erklärt*Idiotensicher*, wäre schön wenn alles so leicht wäre
Efficient service with several emails from collection to posting of cheque to keep me informed. Clear and straight forward instructions on how to box and lable items. Dissapointed with price of CD's though - all less than 30p, so for 45 CD's sold I had £12.08..better than continuing to gather dust, but some weren't even opended and of current artists. I would hope Music Magpie could revise their criteria, and consider this in their assessment of price in the future. Would consider using Music Magpie again.
It was easy to use. It took quite a while for the cheque to come through, but other than that is was an easy way to clear out some old CD's and kids DVD's.
Good Service, though i found it quite sad parting with CD's that cost me £20 for 25p :-(,,i don't suppose anybody else would want them. I got rid of about 30-40 Cd's that I would never have listened too again and have been sat there for years and got cheque for £16 so cant complain or I wouldn't have done it!! They don't buy singles though which is a shame
It was a month between you picking up my items and me receiving the cheque for them; I notice from feedback that you repeatedly tell other people you are working within guideline time limits but this is a long time! also, I do think you could give a better price for items - certainly for mine which were all in excellent condition. 30p per film DVD is rubbish! Unfortunately, since most of your clients are extremely hard up (they would not be selling DVDs otherwise) they have no option but to accept your poor offers. I'm hoping you will soon have some competition and will therefore offer better prices. Good marks for keeping people informed though - except for the week or so after your email telling me the "ink was drying on my cheque" and my actually receiving it. And I suppose a little money is better than no money.
Great service - kept fully informed at every stage of the sale. Local drop-off so much more convenient than Royal Mail.
Good quick service.
Very efficient easy to deal with.
service overall is good, process is good althought could be a later faster.
and valve paid for dvd & cd's are very low
Easy to use, used my iPhone to scan UPC codes from CDs, printed out instructions and mailing label, dropped off at local UPS, and within 2 weeks had my check.
A little slow, but otherwise fine.
Very efficient. Thank you.
Quick, Easy to use and Stress free.
kept me informed all the way and everything including payment was excellent
Easy to use website and prompt customer information etc. will use again
everything ran smoothly except the length of time it took for the cheque to arrive after it had supposedly been dispatched
quick and efficient
SLOW TO PROCESS BUT GOOD SERVICE
very pleased cant fault anything
Remembering, of course that you don't have to take any effort in selling on your goodies, they are a reasonable service to use.
I like the volume of products Music Magpie take however the prices offered were a bit low for some products.
Collection was when told and I was updated throughout the process.
Cheque was a little slow to come through but again was informed as it was being processed and sent.
Once the parcel arrives at Music Magpie the service is excellent . However ,there appears to be a collection once a week from the drop off point. It would be nice to know when this will be (even if just the day of the week) ...I missed it by 10 mins and my package had to wait another week to be picked up. If I had known this I would have re-routed and gone to the drop off point first when running errands.
i was very happy with the value of what you gave me on my cds.and you was very quick with your emails as well when you let me know when was sending my cheque out and when you revice the cds that i sent you as well.17-May-2013you are very good
good to be kept informed of progress.
cheque took a long time to get to me. But other than that fine
Very easy to use. Convenient system of dropping parcel off at the local shop. Took a long time for the cheque to come through.
Great way to get rid of unwanted DVDs and Cds
Absolutely wonderful would use these again
thanks music magpie
Very good service.
The app is poor, having scanned in nearly 100 items and saved it lost connection and wouldnt let me complete it
everything was good
I was kept well informed throughout, but the whole process was a little slow.
The best way to recycle unwanted cd's and dvd's
kept me informed all the way.
Happy with the price.
And no postage, dropped off at the co-op.
Although I was pleased with the number of CDs/DVDs Music Magpie accepted, I was a little disappointed with the amount I was offered for most of them. I preferred to see them going to be reused rather than into a landfill, so despite that minor gripe, it was still a good decision to sell them. The actual input of the barcode numbers was simple and quick and I would definitely use Music Magpie again.
Very good service. Not quick enough for excellent.
Idiot proof, very quick and so convenient just having to drop off the parcels locally. Thank you for this easy way to keep music in the world. :-)
It took ages. I would not rush to use them again!
Good way of selling unwanted CD's
Very pleased with the transaction. Courier service worked well. Good communication throughout all stages.
Simple and easy to use...very user friendly.
Quite enjoyed entering the barcodes to see what each item was worth. Some items weren't worth that much but gropued together they mad quite a bit of money and they were only filling the cupboard at home and not used. Will definately use Music Magpie again!!!
It takes to long to get paid. The amount you get for some cd's is a pittance. Not sure I would bother to do it again.
Easy to use website, informative, good communication.
On the whole, the transaction has gone smoothly however I set a date for my items to be picked up by the courier and made sure that someone was in the house between 8am-8pm that day but no one showed up until the next morning at 11am. This was a bit annoying as there could easily have been no one home. Although, other than this everything else has been fine.
No problems at all.
Bit slower than the TV ad led me to believe but I was kept fully informed of progress all the way through and I think you provide a very good service.
Very good, Kept in communication
A very well run site, although sums do not seem a lot they know there business and if you have a great pile of stuff cluttering up your space as I did it is surprising how it mounts up. Free postage is a bonus, and their communication system is excellent, keeping in touch at all stagers as to progress. I have no hesitation in recommending them, in fact I already done so.
The service I received was very good, the transaction was very quick and simple. The money came a little later then expected but other than this minor point the service was faultless. I will be using MM again in the future!
Company did what they said they would do on the tin. So no complaints in how the company operates. Just a bit disappointing in the prices offered for CD's but I suppose they were only getting in the way and would have ended up in the bin anyway.
I've used Music Magpie twice now and I haven't had a problem with either transaction.
Simple and easy to use service. Great communication about the progress of the items i had sent in. Would highly recommend.
The process all worked well and the courier service was simple and arrived when it was agreed. The only part that was slow was the arrival of the check which was a little later than the original message said it would be.
Great service, using the iPhone app to scan our DVDs made it simpler and faster and they gave us a fair price for most items, with no quibbles. Payment by BACS was quick. Recommended.
Simple and easy to transact
The process to send items was simple enough. But that's were it end's. I received emails after 2weeks to say items were being processed and almost a third of the quoted value was deducted. No reason explanation nothing! I personally checked all items and made sure even the boxes weren't cracked.
The T's and C's clearly state they can't return or explain problems so you have little chance of getting details of why ?
Very disappointed won't be using again !
Swift and efficient service. Very easy to use and not even a trip to the post office needed.
Cant fault anything.
I was hesitant to use musicMagpie, now I wish I had done it earlier! It was dead easy to get the quotes and the money arrived in my account well within the time allotted. I will definitely use musicMagpie again and have recommended it to my friends -- thanks MM!!
Performed exactly as advertised.Like the way you are kept up to date with progress of your transaction
The only negative was the length of time it took to deliver and process the payment. I think if the wait time from pick-up to receiveing payment could be shortened to 7 days, then the service would be excellent.
Prices weren't great, but then selling secondhand stuff never is, although price offered for a small number of my cds (by more unusual artisits) did surprise me (i.e I got a couple of quid per cd for some) compared to the usual chart-y stuff - all were about the same price when originally bought ! Time taken to process order and receive payment was slower than expected. Webcam scanner app didn't work on my (recent-ish) HP laptop. But, hey, I got a few quid for a pile of cds that were otherwise gathering dust, so can't complain too much. Another shipment made from this household did result in an issue where items were initially reported missing. We offered to call the Police (since the box we sent was very well taped up and if items had gone then they must have been removed en route) but, after another chase-up call the Happy Magpie decided to credit us with the full amount. Hmmm.... Generally, once 'managed' MM seems an okay alternative to Dusty Bin (which is where too much stuff goes because others often don't want it, sometimes even for free).
Easy 2 use
Everything went smoothly. I would use them again.
Everything was efficient and fast. I had some really odd cds and you recognized most of them. Good work. Happy customer.
Good communication with emails, quick turnaround.
The process was straightforward and payment was made directly to my account. Happy with the service - thanks!
It takes a very long time from sending your items to receiving the cheque.
FYE gives but prices but for the things FYE wont buy back musicmagpie is a decent althoigh tome consuming way to make some money off stuff you dont use anymore.
Nothing good I can say about this company, had almost 1000 CD's as going through a bereavement and had to do a house clearance. They took almost a month to sort out the funds, claimed that things were missing (they weren't as they were checked three times) and was asked to repack 3 times!!! (only repacked twice as refused 3rd time) Also, just to add more days to the process of sending payment they asked me to verify Bank Details twice in two weeks! I mean, am I really going to change my account and does it really take you 3 days to verify these details?? Customer services refused my order as delivered even though I had actual evidence that these were delievered but they could not understand this. I would not reccomensd this service to ANYONE that has half a brain cell. They pay you pittance for the CD's then claim that others are not in good order, then keep them?! AVOID AT ALL COSTS, PATHETIC, USELESS AND NO MORE BUSINESS SENSE THAN A PIKEY! There were more problems I could list but one thing that I know is that MM is not worth the service they offer - check the web and you will see others that have had a bad experience!
Ich habe CD,s verkauft, eine Eingangsbestätigung erhalten, der Geldbetrag wurde Zeitnah auf mein Konto überwiesen
I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS ABOUT MY TRANSACTION FROM THE CURRIER TO BEING KEPT INFORMED ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO MY CHECK ARRIVING .
The process was simple and relatively fast! I entered in all the barcodes from each CD and DVD, packed it into a box, printed out the mailing label and shipped the pacakge. Musicmagpie.com sent me emails during every step letting me know when the package was received, that the items were being verified, the check being cut and then sent out to me. Couldn't have been easier! I highly recommend musicmagpie.com for people who have CDs and DVDs that they no longer want and would like to make some extra change.
I have used music magpie several times as have been clearing out my house, no problems, good service, quick turn around from start to finish. :)
Great service, didn't have to pay postage fees which is a bonus. Regular emails from music magpie updating me on the status of my order was great, It meant I had piece of mind that I hadn't been forgotten about.
It was a good experience. Easy to follow instructions and usingthe app was very simple. However, you do wait quite a long time for your cheque. I was informed all the way along the process but it does take rather a long time, in my opinion, to process and receive your cheque.
But all in all very pleased.
no problem with the service,would use again when got some stuff to send
I read lots of opinions online before using MM, not all positive ones, but my experience was perfectly satisfactory. True the prices offered are minimal but the sheer convenience of packaging up just ONE parcel, having it collected from home, excellent communication at all stages of the transaction and only one item out of well over 100 rejected, all factors massively outweigh the hassle of trying to sell each item individually. I'm a happy customer and will certainly use MM again, and recommend them to friends and family.
Magpie's app made checking and shipping my old DVDs and CDs easy. The only downside was that it took between 3-4 weeks for them to process my order and send me a check.
Fairly straight forward. Took time to recieve cheque
Good opportunity to clear out some CDs I never listen to any more and make some cash. I really liked the idea of free postage with the local collection (although the website didn't actually show the most convenient/ nearest shop to me until I tried a neighbour's postcode).
Got the price I had been quoted after around 3 weeks. Will definitely use again.
i think music magpie is excellent i have sold alot of things on here i had a real good tidy out
Great communication throughout the transaction.
Overall the transaction was smooth and i was kept well informed. This service is not for you if you think you are going to get rich but if you are not to bothered by what they offer, for the goods you want to sell then i would recommend music magpie
I think it was very misleading when defining my product therefore forcing me to either accept a very low price for it, or have it sent back for £15, which is a ridiculous price. I shall not be returning to Music Magpie any time soon.
I used the free collection service that they have this was really quick and easy. However I opted to recieve payment by cheque and this was very slow and took almost four weeks to arrive.
I wish I'd found this company years ago! All feedback from the moment of finding a price, to dispatch & their receipt of the sold goods, is e-mailed to you. They even let you know when the money has been 'transferred'...although this can take up to a week (2 days once, but typically 4 working days.....nevr five).
Bin sehr zufrieden mit dem Ablauf meiner Verkaufsaktion, alles lief reibungslos. Kann ich nur weiter empfehlen.
Very efficient,fast and reliable service with prompt payment to boot. What more could I ask for. Many Thanks.
