Roughly, there are over 1 billion websites on the Internet. That is an enormous amount of resources, services and business all scattered in one place. It can be a daunting task to find out who is reputable and who is not. Here are a few tips to help spot the best place to sell your video games to.
Any company you are considering dealing with should be as honest as possible. I realize this seems a little silly to bring up. You would be surprised what you can find out about a Company or a website just doing a quick Google search. Does the website have any awards or accreditation? Can the website pass scrutiny through a nifty site called webutation which gives a report on a websites reputation online? If you said “No” to any questions, it’s time to find another website.
The Old School Game Vault is always communicating with our customers about their experience using our service. As I’m amazed to hear about how many times I've been told that website X & website Y don't pay people. So it's important to thoroughly check about a website, read their reviews, reach out to someone who left a review and ask them a few questions. You can easily do that thru Facebook or Google. Don’t be shy, most legit business have their contact information easily available.
How clear is the information about the service you are considering using? Ask your self does what you’re reading about their policies, does that make sense? Any reputable company should be upfront and honest about how their service or how their business operates. You should not have to dig for basic information about a company.
