There are so many CD’s, DVD's and games that people no longer want and no longer use. They do not know where to bring them or what to do with them. Zumu has the answer to help you get rid of your old media products.
The Zumu platform enables you to get cash for your items or donate that cash to a charity. The requirements for what they will accept include DVD’s, full length CD’s, and games for Xbox, Wii, Nintendo DS and PlayStation. All of the items must be in great condition, meaning they can’t have any scratches on it. The original casing with the original barcode on it must also be intact. The original artwork must be in the case and must not have any rips or marks on them. The discs cannot be pirated or copied versions.
To start your item submission, you must enter the barcode from the items you want to sell. If any of the barcodes do not process through their system, you may have to call them for further directions so you make cash for it. There is a minimum of 10 items per transaction; there is not a maximum item limit.
Dollar values of the items change daily, so once you receive the quote and prepaid shipping label, you must send them right away to ensure they arrive within 10 days of the transaction. If any of your items are rejected because Zumu does not feel they meet the quality standards, they will not pay you for those items, and those items will be recycled. Payment is made by check and is typically mailed out to you within two weeks of the date they receive your package.
Zumu has taken this business plan as an opportunity to bring about an overall positive experience for everyone involved including the community at large. First, they have created an easy way for individuals to make quick cash for their old media items. Other people who may not have been able to afford that media product can finally buy them at a low price.
Second, Zumu has taken an environmental stand to help reduce waste in the landfills. They believe that “going green” is important and their site enables everyone to assist with their efforts. Media products are either sold or they are recycled.
Helping others has also been incorporated into their payment system. Charities are always in need of funding. Promoting charities and making it easy for sellers to donate the money they make from their media instead of receiving a personal check. You are able to direct your payment to the charity of your choice based on those listed on their site.
They also make it easy for fundraisers to generate money for their cause. If you are involved in a fundraiser, you may submit a request for it to be listed on their site as an option for sellers to donate their money to.
Zumu has shown that it is possible to make a difference in the world. By making one small step, they have created a path to bring out the goodness in people and hopefully are setting an example for other businesses to follow.

This company is a scam! My 13 year old son sent in a box of xbox games and has yet to receive his payment....this was over a year ago!! We have tried contacting them over and over and get the same email back saying the issue has been solved and they do not have an exact date when his payment will be issued..blah,blah,blah! Now they just ignore me. I have turned them into the BBB, which hasn't done us any good. These people are nothing but common thieves! Take your items to a gaming store where they will at least give you store credit!
Early in 2013 I sent Zumu several boxes of CD's & DVD's. It took a few months, but I did get paid. In July 2013 I sent them several more boxes & I am still *waiting* for my monies. I've emailed repeatedly & have gotten the same "we're committed to making all payouts, please be patient" response. I'm guessing I'll never see the money. Great idea, horrible service.
It's been a year and I haven't received my money from my items. I mailed promptly. They received about a week or so later. I kept in contact, with their basic responses. "We can't see where your money is currently but rest assured you will receive it soon." Their responses continued like this until my e-mails started being returned to me. None of their e-mails were legit along with their website at the beginning of 2014. I guess I am out product and money.
I sent hundreds of dollars worth if cds & dvds to these creeps & they never sent them back, any money to me, or a response to an email I am pursuing legal actions against them.
They have had my items since 5/23/13, it's been a year and no payment. What a disgrace, and what a scam they pulled on America. I received nothing but emails full of lies, your payment is on the way, we are having problems, please be patient. I just can't believe that the law hasn't caught up with them. I should have donated my stuff to goodwill or to a community yard sale. Plain and simple, ZUMU is a SCAM run by criminals.
This is a total scam! Do not use this service unless you just want someone to take your products off your hands and never pay you as promised. It's been just about a year and I have never received my payment, nor do they answer customer service emails.
Its sad that I'll never see my $55 that I've been owed for now over A YEAR!!! Contacted BBB and they couldn't do anything.. And this is after contacting the site many many times with no responses or "we're backed up" bullshit.
Unfortunately, those customers still awaiting payment are out of luck - the company was evicted for nonpayment of rent. Not only have customers not been paid, the last two paychecks of the few remaining employees have bounced. The owner of this company is a crook! If anyone is looking for an alternate company to deal with, avoid GoTradeMyStuff.com - new company, same shady owner!!!
