    Recorded or not, you should have at least asked for a 'proof of postage' receipt from your Post Office. It would have allowed you to file a compensation claim with Royal Mail if the item went missing.

    Hopefully this'll encourage you to sell/swap your games on this forum, you little scallywag.

    Amazon sent a beautiful young Spanish woman round to wank me off by way of apology after my trade in got lost in the post.

    While it uses Amazon to do the payment processing etc, you're not actually selling them to Amazon, at least that was the case when I did my one and only trade-in.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Traded in numerous times and worked perfectly - even upped the quality on a item or too giving me more than expected.

    Do get a proof of postage, standard practice when sending anything through royal mail.

    Wish I saw this thread (and the others on Amazon's site) before I went to trade in my copy of Fifa 14 for the PS3>PS4 upgrade deal.

    10 days and waiting for them to still actually receive it, although yes there is the possibility of it getting lost in the post but after a bit of research the chance of getting scammed by the third party doing it is looming!

    Just hate myself for not sending it recorded like I usually would (as they give you free postage to print out.

    @danathjo just badger Amazon. I've had to chase a trade-in a couple of times. Amazon will eventually credit your account as a goodwill gesture. I've never not had my funds.

    will do, just as long as I can get it sorted this month before the special deal runs out!

    I had no problems after I traded about 30 games.
    Delivered to them the next day, credited my account that evening. They even changed all of them to 'as new' so I ended up 50 better off (paranoid they would send them back)
    Isn't there a tracking number on Amazon?

    I've traded in games with them a few times now and had no problems but I do always send items recorded delivery if they're more than 20, just in case

    @danathjo im sure there was a code somewhere on your Amazon account you could track your package on royal mail.

    @danathjo just asked the wife if she remembers, she said I got a receipt from post office with a tracking number.
    I don't remember that (old age affecting my memory), but I definitely remember not sending them recorded, just the label I printed off.
