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.

I sent two boxes 8.12.13 and have sent multiple emails. Got a response back that they are behind...OK, behind double the amount of time they said they needed (i.e.6-8 weeks).
I am not happy and believe this is a total scam.
May God have Mercy on their souls.
Zumu is nothing but a scam. They will take your cds - not pay you and not return your merchandise - that is stealing. Almost 7 months and still waiting.
I sent about 90 movies to zumu back in may 2013 I still waiting on my payment. I keep emailing them and they just keep giving me the run arounds. I asked for my movies back and they told me the they had already recycled them and hasn't paid me anything. I believe this is a scam. Please do not waste your time its a scam.
Zumu.co is so in the red that they can't pay you. They even delay employee checks because they have no money. They don't intend on paying anything but the BBB complaints. File a complaint at:
They do not even deserve a half star. Scam! Please check out there Facebook page comments. Hundreds of Ticked off people that have not been paid. I have been waiting close to 6 months now for payment on 3 separate shipments. Months ago I was given a specific date of Sept 14th that my checks would be cut. Never received a check! Now it takes almost two weeks for them to reply to my emails, I get the same "auto" response each time; "sorry we can not give you any time-frame for your checks to be cut". I did file a complaint with Better Business Bureau last week, haven't heard anything from that yet. However I was the 191 complaint to be filed against them. I do not recommend you send this company anything unless you really don't care about being paid for your items.
It's been 4 MONTHS since my order was processed and ready for payment. I have yet to receive ANYTHING regarding payment or why it's taking so long. I still do not have a check. I'm starting to think this IS a scam. I will never use this site again.
Be careful using Zumu.co! Back in June of this year I shipped a collection of 500+ new, factory sealed CD's and I still have not received a dime. I have contacted the company several times and their replies and nothing are the same thing.
Do not send your items to Zumu! and if you do, light a candle for hope! because the payment process could be eternal!
