The ShopTo trade-in program allows you to receive a ShopTo.Net credit note in exchange for sending eligible items to us.
We have a team dedicated to setting our trade in prices. On searching for a product through our Trade-In program it will display the selectable conditions of your item and the price we will offer for it.
Unfortunately we currently only offer this service to UK residents.
We require you to be at least 18 years old to use our trade-in program.

We will supply a pre-paid Royal Mail delivery label for packages that weighs up to 1000grams. This will allow you to return this to us completely free of charge. When you submit your trade-in, you'll print a pre-paid Royal Mail delivery label for sending in your items. If your package weighs more than 1000grams, such as a games console, we offer a service which is called ‘Collect+’. This service will allow you to drop off you parcel at a local shop where you will receive proof of postage / tracking. ‘Collect+’ insures all shipments for £50 and will accept packages up to 10Kilos. Further information regarding ‘Collect+’ can be found here (http://www.collectplus.co.uk/)
There are over 5,000 drop off points in the UK mainland and Northern Ireland. These are stores such as local Co-Ops, McColls and Spar. Unfortunately there are no collection points in the Channel Islands or at BFPO locations. Further information regarding ‘Collect+’ can be found here (http://www.collectplus.co.uk/)

We recommend packing your trade-in items as best as possible to avoid any damaged in the post on its journey to us. Guidelines on how you should pack your trade-in can be found below:
We would advise that customer post via the post office – ‘According to Royal Mail Packetpost instructions, it's recommend that all items are sent via the Post Office(TM), as all items will receive a proof of posting (which helps cover against fraud, and also without which you cannot claim for any loss or damage against Royal Mail). If posted in a pillar-box, the customer should be aware of having no proof of posting. To find your closest Post Office(TM) location, visit the branch finder or go to www.royalmail.co.uk and select 'branch finder'.
IMPORTANT: We advise getting sufficient insurance for any trade-in you send. ShopTo is not responsible for goods that are lost or damaged in the mail.
Please only send your item(s) to the address printed on your trade-in label. If this is sent to any other address we will not receive this and you will not receive a ShopTo credit note.
We recommend getting sufficient insurance for any trade-in you send, as ShopTo is not responsible for goods that are damaged or lost in the Royal Mail post.
You can contact ShopTo concerning Trade-in directly here.

We are always looking to add new items so check back regularly. You can contact us through your account section if you wish to make us aware of a specific title you would like to trade in.
