As an incentive scheme to all our sellers, we pay you £1.00 for every completed sale on the site.  (This is a promotional offer for 2021 & Games4eva reserves the right to withdraw this promotion at any time as per our Terms & Conditions).

*To qualify for commission rewards, you must add a valid tracking number or upload proof of postage in your "my orders" area 

*If a customer has purchased multiple games using "Add to Cart", this is fine however each game must still be dispatched individually with its own valid tracking number or proof of postage to qualify for multiple commission rewards. (Eg, sending multiple games in one parcel with one tracking number will result in 1 commission).

*Click & Collect is not valid with this promotion as proof of postage or valid tracking is required to determine the commission. 

*Cancelled orders do not qualify. The sale must be completed & proof of postage or valid tracking added to validate the commission.

The artwork & game release on the database is different from the game I want to sell - is this ok?

No - Very Important. The game you are selling must have the EXACT same artwork & be the same game release as listed on the Games4eva database. It is the seller's responsibility to ensure this is the actual game they are listing for sale (& this also helps ensure a smooth pleasant transaction for both the buyer & seller). If it is not the same game (or you cannot find this), then you will need to "Add a game" to the database. (Check out the "Add a game" section in our FAQs or watch the "how-to add a game or edit data tutorial video" on the home screen on how to do this).

If you do find the game you want to sell is on the database but the artwork is missing, just "edit" the game, add the artwork & send it over to the Games4eva team which pending approval will be updated & live on the site within 24 hours.

 

 

How will I know when I receive orders on the site?

Regularly check your "My Orders" section to stay up to date with sales that need to be shipped. In addition to this, you will also see a notification in your "messages" when you receive a new order.

 

 

A buyer has placed an order, what do I do next?

1) Login to your account, click your profile name & then click "My Orders". The order will state & display one of two options as follows -

* If the order has not been paid, a red text box will display "Order placed, awaiting payment"

* If the order has been paid for with Paypal, a yellow text box will display "Payment processed, its time to ship your order". 

(PLEASE NOTE - Paypal is linked with Games4eva to update order status, however it is the seller's responsibility to check the payment has been received before dispatch). If for example, you are a new PayPal seller, your account may have restrictions to which payment might have been completed but may not show due to pending or clearing status. It is the seller's responsibility to check this as Games4eva cannot be held responsible for any liability.

2) Once payment has been confirmed, pack up & dispatch your order & click "Payment received & order shipped". (You can also add tracking information or upload proof of postage at this point too)

3) Leave feedback, "Archive" the transaction & your order is now complete.

 

 

I live in the UK & want to sell to UK & overseas buyers, can I do this?

Yes, this is fine & we encourage overseas sales to increase your chances of sale & maximize your profits. Most of our current buyers & sellers are UK-based however, we do have some buyers & sellers overseas who have signed up as well. Please state clearly in your seller's terms & conditions where you are based (to not cause any confusion) & what shipping rates you offer.

 

 

I have signed up to Games4eva but live overseas outside of the UK, is this ok?

Similar to the above, this is fine as Games4eva is a worldwide buying & selling marketplace. If a buyer wanting to purchase from you is based (for example) in the UK & you are located in Italy (for example), then just make sure that you have clearly stated in your seller's terms & conditions, where you are based (to not cause any confusion) & also what shipping rates you offer.

 

 

Selling Tips & general good online practice

*Do not ship orders until you have received full payment.

*Be sure to offer a payment gateway that includes payment protection. (This is why we offer PayPal as the preferred payment for Games4eva orders).

*Communicate messages & maintain a smooth transaction via the "My Orders" page.

*Affiliate yourself with the Games4eva videogame grading standards to ensure an accurate & smoother sales process.

*Pack up & safely secure your parcels to reduce the risk of damage in transit.

*Tracked & insured postal services/couriers help eliminate non-claims.

*Be polite, respectful & factual when leaving feedback. 

*For any further questions you may have in regard to selling, please refer to the FAQS page where you can find more information.
