How to earn:
Simply input the bar codes (or ISBNs) from your unwanted items and Ziffit will tell you how much they will offer you. Once accepted, package up your goods (a box is fine) and then they provide free postage as long as you can get to a Collect Plus location. There's also an Apple app for your iPhone or iPad.
Payment method(s) & thresholds:
Once your trade reaches either ten items or a value of £5 then you can go ahead and complete it. You can get paid via BACS, Paypal, cheque or you can even donate it. I chose BACS, and my trade was accepted on 14th January and the cash was in my bank on 17th January.
I was disappointed to find that they rejected one of the books I sent valued at £2.31 – their reason being that it was missing supplements, which of course, I cannot prove. Using Ziffit was a fast and efficient process, with them keeping me updated via email every step of the way. As with any service of this kind, you do only get small offers on your items (typically under £1 for each item, most books being 30p) and they don't accept every item. In the trade items I wanted to value, there were only 2 items that they didn't accept. I would definitely use them again, but being sure to compare the amount they will buy for between Zapper and Music Magpie too.
