Music Magpie is a great idea, but its appeal is waning.
The offer price for CDs seems to be dropping - the lowest price I had been offered for anything was £0.30p until recently. It's now typically considerably less than this, and the lowest price is £0.22, and £0.23 for a double CD. This is bordering on the "it's not worth the effort", unless you're selling relatively large numbers.
I have my payments made by bank transfer, but it seems to take ages for the money to reach my account - it wasn't even sent until 12 days after the arrival of my order, arriving in my account several days later. It had already taken a full week from collection for the parcel to arrive at your premises.
Also, there is no feedback about which items are rejected and why. It's understandable that items that are in too poor condition are rejected, but the seller loses out altogether - no payment, and no CD or DVD, but no explanation. A little information here would go a long way. Perhaps giving a clue as to what is rejected and why might help sellers to not send items in similar condition in future. They get to keep their CDs, and Music Magpie don't have to waste their time, so enabling their service to be more efficient.
So, the appeal of Music Magpie is waning a little. It needs to be slicker, and offer prices need to be realistic to keep it being attractive.
