Less Time, Less Hassle: Decluttr Simplifies Selling DVDs, CDs and Video Games to Make Money
Company Enters U.S. Market with Goal of “Decluttring” the Online-Selling Market for Consumers
Decluttr allows consumers to sell all of their gently used media and games at once, ship them to one location for free and receive cash from one entity. It's surprisingly simple. The new site is owned by one of the fastest-growing technology businesses in the United Kingdom, Entertainment Magpie (musicMagpie.co.uk), which has successfully paid millions of dollars to people selling goods. And now it's coming to the United States.
"Today, if a consumer wants to sell DVDs, CDs, or video games, they either drive to a store or list and ship products one-by-one on an online platform," said Brett E. Lauter, president, U.S., Decluttr. "Decluttr is simplifying this process with three-steps – scan it, send it, spend it. Consumers go to one site, list all their items and receive a fair value through an objective, real-time pricing system and print out their free shipping label."
The need for this type of service is greater than ever. According to a recent study1, 62 percent of respondents ranked the ability to sell media in one place/at one time the most important feature of this type of service, and 66 percent said the ability to get cash for different items through one website/account is equally important.
Consumers are always looking for ways to make their lives easier, help them get rid of unwanted goods and earn money. Decluttr is the answer.
How It Works: Scan It, Send It, Spend It
It's a simple, efficient, "one-box" process:
- Enter or scan the barcode to get an instant value;
- Send selected items using free shipping service labels; and
- Receive a check in the mail
One Box — Whole Home
According to Lauter, the company's vision is to evolve to accept a range of items that may include designer clothes, electronics and more.
"We want to make 'Decluttr' a verb in the online realm, similar to how 'Google' has become synonymous with 'search,'" said Lauter. "As in, I never listen to these CDs anymore … I should Decluttr them.
"As in the United Kingdom, the magic is our behind-the-scenes infrastructure. Decluttr has built a unique structure capable of accepting and refurbishing enormous amounts of products from millions of individuals.
"For now, we are focusing on media because we've learned that it's one of the most commonly collected items that people are looking to sell," continued Lauter.
Decluttr is entering the U.S. market with a full launch across the marketing mix, including PR, social media and advertising. CerconeBrownCompany of Boston, MA will handle PR and social in the U.S., while BKV of Atlanta, GA will handle advertising. The advertising campaign launched December 30th on TBS, MTV, Comedy Central, Spike and SyFy.
