Where to sell PCWorld/Currys voucher?

14
Posted 2nd Dec
Got a spare £200 voucher which I have no use for. I remember there being a buy/sell section on here........but haven't used in years and cannot see any more. Is eBay the best course of action? Can I protect myself adequately from scammers?

cheers

If I win the Euromillions tomorrow I most definitely will!
For sale/For trade section did sadly 'die' on here. Much loved, sadly missed!

Not sure how you can "protect" yourself to be honest. These scammers are ALWAYS present on the likes of Ebay and unfortunately some members on here have been 'bitten' trying to sell intangible goods on that platform. Ebay can be reluctant to help in such cases. Have a search through the "Discussions" section to see if you can find some of the posts. There may be valuable info there.

I would personally only sell via Gumtree and use Bank Transfer or COC as the payment options as this is harder (if not almost impossible) for a buyer to reverse the transaction afterwards. With a voucher, there's always the fear of supplying the code - only for the buyer to claim "void" or already used. Is this a physical voucher or just a code?

Thanks for that useful post. It has crossed my mind that it's kind of hard to secure! It can be checked online to verify, but guess that doesn't mean a lot...

It's a physical piece of paper with a code on it.

Yes, let any potential buyer check its validity before they buy

All I'm thinking is that if you advertised it on say, Gumtree you can put in the description that you can demonstrate to a potential buyer whilst in your home that the code is valid before they hand you the cash. Or, if they bank 'online' they can transfer the money to your account and everyone is happy.

It's all a risk nowadays with online selling as scamming has become so easy and the platforms are readily available as a tool. I don't want to read yet another post from a HUKD member saying that they sent a code via Ebay and it's all gone to

I hope you can sort something out that has a satisfactory outcome, @l33t-krew
What was that website (I saw an ad on TV I think?) that specialises in voucher selling? I can't remember a name but maybe they have some kind of 'built-in' protection service for buyers/sellers? Someone else on here might know who I'm on about or maybe have even used such a service?

Or maybe.......just maybe.......it's all in my mind????
You can sell voucher codes over on avforums classifieds section.

Edit: out of interest how much did you want for them?

Cardyard is a place to look. I've used it for buying gift cards and sold one gift card, no issues receiving payment
PM me a photo of it and I'll let you know if it's scammer-proof.

Well, I can answer that.. there is anything we need I think! I am glad voucher is valid for 2 years.. still got 1 year to go to spend it on something!

I tried to ask JL for price match on some items, they said ok and next min it was out of stock! 😡
