Buying, Selling & Trading Christian Music since 1993
TRADING AND SELLING INFORMATION PAGE
Christian Music X-Change gives credit or cash on used & new Christian CDs, tapes, videos, records, DVDs and the like. You can also send secular music and such but credit is usually pretty low. Please note the following guidelines and if you agree (and only if you agree) then send a list of items you wish to sell or trade and offers will be returned. If you prefer you can send items without prior approval but by doing so you agree to accept whatever credit or cash amount CMX deems appropriate. Please send your list to firstname.lastname@example.org as an email attachment in ***PLAIN ASCII TEXT *** ONLY (please, no Word, WordPerfect, Excel, Write, etc. formats) or, better yet, as text in an email. If you're using WordPerfect,etc please save the list in plain text by choosing "save as" and "ascii text","DOS text" or something similar. Also, please list each item on a SINGLE line rather than everything in one continuous line. Thank you. ---------------------- Trade info: Credit amounts vary greatly but for items that there are few or none already in stock and are undamaged credit is GENERALLY about $4 for CDs, $.10 for tapes,$.25 to $1 for records and $2 to $5 for videos. Some of the factors affecting price are style, condition, demand and current stock. Credit on items could be anywhere from almost nothing to $100+. Items marked with "?" are unrecognized by CMX. If they're normal, regular issue Christian CDs on a label that CMX recognizes,credit will probably be about $4. If you want, you can email back with the year and label for a more accurate quote. Credit prices only apply to one copy of each item unless more are listed. If multiple copies are sent, credit prices will probably be lower on additional copies than on the first copy. IMPORTANT: For full credit all items must be Christian full length original non-compilation regular issue CDs on a major labels in undamaged condition in undamaged standard cases with both front and back undamaged inserts unless otherwise described. All offer amounts are tentative upon examimation of trades. Independant releases are generally less credit but not always. NOTE: deductions will be made for scratches, damaged or missing cases, damaged or missing inserts (regardless of how they were originally issued), marks, used items listed as "SS" or the like*, etc. Please, DO NOT send damaged items if you're not willing to accept possible deductions. Please also make sure everything plays properly and doesn't skip and that all items are in their correct cases. If you send defective items it means that someone down the line is going to wind up with a bad CD. TRADE/CASH: Offer amounts are for credit toward future purchases. CMX deals almost exclusivly in credit. You can get cash but it's only 25% of the credit price. Sorry about this but it's really hard to make any money when paying out cash. Credit price does not include shipping, handling or insurance to or from CMX. So for example if your trade credit was $30 and you want 3 $10 CDs, you would still need to send more for shipping/handling, etc. Credit does not expire and can be used any time for merchandise, shipping/handling, insurance, etc, just like cash. Cash payments are normally made via check but you can have it done via PayPal if you prefer. Offers are for the items only. Any shipping, insurance or other costs are paid by you. So for example if your credit was $24 you would get $24 (assuming no deductions for damage, etc), not $24 plus your postage. If you do want cash, you should keep in mind that cash amount, especially if the items are damaged or there are already lots in stock, may not even cover your postage costs. By sending items you agree to these conditions. Again, DO NOT send items if you're not willing to abide by these conditions. (Sorry to keep saying this but every once in awhile there's someone that just doesn't get it). If you do decide that you want items sent back (excluding anything already sold) there is a charge of $1.00 for EACH item (regardless of offer amount) plus the normal charges for shipping/handling to cover the time to unpack, examine, catalog and file the item(s). CONSIGNMENT: You can also sell your items on consignment if you think the item is worth at least $10. If you want to do this, you would set whatever price you want for an item ($10 minimum) then when it sells, you get half the seling price in trade credit (or 40% of selling price in cash if you prefer). So say you have a rare CD and think it should sell for $100. It would be listed for that then when it sold your account would be credited for $50 and this credit could be used whenever you wish. Or you could get a $40 check sent to you. If you decide you want your item(s) back you would need to pay normal shipping/handling and insurance just as any regular order. If you don't set a price for your item it will set by CMX. You can also change the price at any time. SENDING TRADES: If you want you can send items without the cases. Credit would be less (see below for deductions) but if you're sending a lot and/or you're sending them from outside the USA, it may save you money on postage. Inserts and CDs should be layed flat between two pieces of stiff cardboard and well padded so they aren't damaged. Pack items very well in a sturdy box. For best results, wrap items INDIVIDUALLY in crumpled newspaper, bubble wrap, etc and make sure the box is sturdy & well secured with packing tape. The Post Office can be pretty rough on packages sometimes so make sure everything is well padded and well secured. The heavier a package is, the more likely it is to be damaged in transit. It's also good to mark the package "fragile". Prices are based on how items arrive, not on how they were sent. Please make sure that the correct CD, tape, etc is in each case and rewind tapes. IMPORTANT: If you decide to send some or all of these items, please print the offer section of the email and send it with your shipment. BE SURE TO INCLUDE THIS. If this information is not included $3 will be deducted. Please SEND A PRINTOUT OF THE OFFERS. Also be sure to include your name, address and email INSIDE the package along with a list of items/services wanted if you're also ordering. The following deductions to the cash or credit amount will be made up to almost the full amount of the offer for any damage, missing inserts, etc. unless noted. Please be certain to note any problems or damage or be prepared to accept the following deductions. ------------------------------------------------------------- Regular CD case damaged: $ .50 Double CD case damaged: $2.00 CD Thin case: $ .50 Scratched/Scuffed CD: $3.00 Minor marks on front of CD or tape shell: $1.00 Used items listed as new: $3.00 Minor insert damage, stamped, stickers, etc: $1.00 Major insert damage or missing insert (front or back): $2.00 each Tape case damaged: $ .25 Tape insert damaged or missing: $ .50 Tape shell cracked: $ .50 Radio promo type items, unless they contain something otherwise unavailable are usually of very low trade value, especially if they come in a cardboard case, don't have inserts, etc. * All items listed as "new", "still sealed", "SS", "(s)", "unopened", etc must show evidence of being FACTORY sealed and never opened. This would include such things as cellophane wrap instead of the stretchy plastic heat sealed shrink-wrap, the artist and title label on the top edge, factory stickers with song titles or other information relevant to the item, and pull tabs to easily unwrap the CD. Sometimes pawn shops or other used music stores will take used items and reseal them with a shrink wrap machine. This is still used even though they may look like they're new and unopened. Credit on these is $3 less than if they were factory sealed. Address to send trades to is: CMX 2127 SE 155th Av Portland, OR 97233 (USA) If you agree to everything above please send a list of items you're interested in trading to email@example.com and offers will be returned to you. Please list format, artist and title and send it as a PLAIN text attachment (please, no Word, Excel, etc format files) or preferably, as text inside an email. Do NOT send a list if any of the above is unacceptable to you. Again, sorry to keep saying this. There's normally no problem but every once in awhile there's someone that ignores the information then thinks that the guidelines shouldn't apply to them. Please, read EVERYTHING above and if you still agree to all of it then please send your list of trades. Please don't send a list or send items unless you've read and agree to all of it. Thank you. ---------------
