    Does anyone use or is anyone aware of a good, automated dvd trading site? I have traded on this forum before, and others, but would like something faster, especially considering how large HTF has become. I've tried some of the commerical sites like Spun, dvd123, etc., but don't really like the "get credit for your sales" process as a method of trading.
    What I would like, if anyone knows of a site like this, is a databased dvd trading site.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Ben Menix

    I haven't used it myself, but you could check out swapmonkey.com

    There is/was switchhouse.com, but you can get ripped off VERY easily. There is absolutely no customer service. So, in other words, don't use switchhouse!

    I had not heard of Switchouse, but they appear to have been bought or put out of business by Amazon or something. SwapMonkey has a decent, if relatively complex trading process, plus they do all of the buying and selling of new and used stuff, which get's in the way. (IMHO).
    I'll keep looking for a few more days, but if I can't find anything I think I'll just start my own dvd trade website.
    Thanks for your comments and help,

    Switchouse more or less went under.

    I would like to hear from anyone who has actually used swapmonkey...it bothers me a bit that they are advertising as a medium for swapping (like eBay is a medium for auctions), but they seem to impose several requirements on shipping and prices. Maybe I misunderstood, though.

    Ok, I can't find anything satisfactory...I'm starting my own trading website. If anybody is interested let me know. Don't even have a name yet; any suggestions are welcome.
    Thanks,
