DVDs have a way of accumulating over time and taking up space. Worst of all is the fact that most of them just sit around and collect dust after you watch them once or twice. However, by utilising the various online sales opportunities, you can sell off unwanted DVDs--clearing space and picking up some money in the process.

Choose which outlet you want to use to sell your DVDs. Some examples include eBay.com, Half.com, Amazon.com and Spun.com; you can find others with a simple web search. There are pros and cons for every company that you choose to post your DVD sales to. For example, eBay allows lots of people to bid on your DVD, possibly maximising your profit. However, if a DVD does not attract a large amount of bidders than it may be sold at a discount through eBay.
Sign up to become a seller with the company. In most cases, you will need to provide information such as your e-mail address, real name, and method by which you will receive your payment in order to create your profile. During this process, you will also be able to view what percentage the company takes when you sell through it.
Post your DVDs for sale on the company's website. You will need to provide information like the name of the DVD, what condition it is in, how much you are selling it for and how much you're charging for shipping and handling.
Wait for a sale. It may take some time for a buyer to purchase your DVD. You will be alerted by the company when an item you have put up for sale has been purchased. It is usually at this time that the buyer will send you money in order to pay for the purchase. Wait for the money to arrive into your account before shipping the DVD.
Package and ship the DVD. Use a bubble-wrap envelope to make sure the DVD gets to the buyer without any damage.. Write the address on the envelope, apply the correct postage and ship it to the buyer.
Tips and warnings
- If you're using an eBay auction, you can set the minimum price and the length of the bidding process. You can also set a price that a buyer can meet and but the DVD immediately.
