I recently decided to go all-digital with my console games, both for the Xbox One X and the PlayStation 4 Pro, in order to save space. This meant that I had a load of physical games to sell which went on Amazon, eBay and Facebook.

I listed the games at just below the current going rates in order to shift them quickly, and I also provided free 2nd class postage to sweeten the deal. On Amazon and eBay the games were selling like hot cakes, but not so much on Facebook where it seems time-wasters outnumber genuine buyers approximately 10000:1. As an aside, I wouldn’t bother listing games on Facebook again.

Yusaf Shabbir of Hackney in London messaged me to ask if I could sell him one of the 200GB Sandisk Ultra Micro SD cards that was listed for £29.99 (with free shipping) for £25. Given that such cards were selling like hot cakes at this price, I declined and pointed out that the listed price was already a good one. Yusaf replied:

I’ll go for it, you have excellent feedback so I don’t see why not 🙂

The card – along with all the others – was sent out in a padded Jiffy bag. As with anything over £20, in order to mitigate against dishonest buyer claims that items “weren’t received” I sent the cards with Signed For delivery.

Yusaf’s package was this one.

As shown by the photograph in the listing, the only thing included was the card itself which as anyone who is familiar with Micro SD cards knows, are very small and almost weightless.
