    Anyone use Playtrade on Play.com?

    I just wondered if anyone uses this at all? As i sold something for the first time on 13th October, posted and recieved feedback and my funds are still held by play.com and wondered if because it was my first sale i have to wait for so long for them to be released or something?
    I havent changed my bank details or any other details so just wondered is there a time scale to go through first to get my funds? I only want to use my funds via play not even withdraw to my bank!

    You have to click the dispatch button on the sale listing then Play.com release the funds into your PlayTrade account.

    So you can see your PlayFunds in your Account Summary then?

    Yeah its all there says


    CURRENT BALANCE

    £13.00

    This is the current value of your PlayFunds account. You can spend this on Play.com.

    But......when i go to checkout there is no option to pay using my funds

    Can I spend the cash in my PlayFunds account immediately?

    As a security feature, before you can spend or withdraw the money in your PlayFunds account you must register your bank details in the Account Preferences section of your PlayTrade account. 21 days after you register your bank details you may spend or withdraw money from your PlayFunds account.
    Please note: You do not have to wait until you have sold something to register your bank details with us, which can reduce the amount of time you need to wait before you can spend or withdraw money from your PlayFunds account.

    How do I use my proceeds to buy something?

    Proceed to the checkout as normal, where you will be asked to choose your payment method. Select the Use PlayFunds option on the right hand side of the screen, enter the amount you would like to use and click “Use PlayFunds”.

    Per the previous reply, there is a button on the right at checkout process when payment is to be entered, there is a button labelled 'Use PlayFunds'. You click on this and it will allow you to use your play fund amount to go towards your purchase.

    either that or you have to manually transfer it to your bank account but they charge you a small percentage.

    Yeah just realised im new and it takes 21 days so will be a while, oh well not to worry, gonna save it against an elite anyway really.

    Just gotta hope other things sell soon and if i get Fallout 3 on Xbox 360 real cheap (legit PALl!) then im hoping to bag £30 for that and thats a big profit on what i would pay then its gonna reduce my Elite price im paying lol

    It is a bit like Wheres Wally trying to use your playtrade funds but as mentioned above, theres an option to the right of the screen to use them when making a purchase
