Would you buy online from cash convertors?
Seen a computer I,m interested in,bit worried about them delivering it.Any of you people ordered online from them?Good or bad experience?Thanks in advance for any help.Posted 1 year ago
I haven’t, but I’d give it a shot if they had what I wanted at the right price. Using a credit card in case of a problem.Posted 1 year ago
Can’t really see much of a problem. They are a pretty reputable company with high street shops. They offer limited warranty on used stuff. Only issue might be that they haven’t done enough to check if it was stolen, but they do supposedly checkPosted 1 year ago
Bought a Playstation from them. Was all fine apart from some minor damage that wasn’t as described. Decided I’d keep it anyway so they gave me some money off. Would probably use them again if the price is right.
Note that each shop is a franchise, so some of them have different postage costs etc. and if you have any problems you will have to contact the store you bought from. Think you get 14days to return as standard.Posted 1 year ago
Simple answer – Yes.

Not sure this is the case. I bought a second hand phone from one CC shop and took it back to another without any problem. It may have helped that the phone was faulty and the only equivalent was in another shop, but they did not seem at all bothered as long as I had all the paperwork.Posted 1 year ago

I guess it’s a question of whether it’s more or less of a check than eBay does 🙂Posted 1 year ago

No. I too wouldn’t buy from cash convertors online or offline.Posted 1 year ago
Don’t know if the goods are genuine or stolen.
I asked the same question I here about 18 months ago and the feedback was positive. I bought and was very satisfied with the result – all as described and packaged well for the post.
I think Cash Converters require some kind of proof of ownership before accepting goods. But even if they didn’t, they’re staking their reputation on this model so I wasn’t too worried in spending £80 with them.Posted 1 year ago
Personally, I’d give Cash Converters a wide berth. They buy mid-price stuff dirt cheap, then try to sell on at a premium.Posted 1 year ago
I bought a Arcam 9 CD player off them, a couple of years ago.
Price checked on Ebay and it was very reasonable.
Delivered quickly and as described.
A couple of weeks later, the remote turned up, with a note that they had found it in the shop and it must belong to the CD deck. The remote wasn’t mentioned in the original ad, they can go for quite a few quid on ebay, so pretty pleased with the service.Posted 1 year ago

Yeah, I think they used to buy things at a premium then sell them dirt cheap but that didn’t work out.Posted 1 year ago
They take PayPal now, should give you a bit more security if you haqven’t got a credit card.Posted 1 year ago

You know that or you think that? There are plenty of routes to market for stolen goods that don’t require the person fencing them to have a face to face encounter with with an intermediary that requires proof of ID and keeps records of the transactions. If you had hot goods to dispose of there’s are whole slew of easier and more attractive and more profitable options.Posted 1 year ago
If you had stood in the Lieth walk branch and watched who came in the door carrying obviously stolen goods and walk out without them, your opinion would be the same as mine.
Wouldn’t touch the place.
As for easier and more profitable routes , Oh really ?
Most of it goes to a pub for a tenner so Stolengood R us is a better option than most.Posted 1 year ago

I don’t think there’s many opinions we sharePosted 1 year ago
Ooh get you !!

I’m just bowing to your expertise. I’ve spent time in prison but I can’t identify a criminal or the provenance of an item they’re carrying just by looking at them. I need a tape measure to work out if someones eyes are too close together. Social distancing makes that awkward.Posted 1 year ago

Is not bowing to my expertise. It’s making it clear you feel you are very different to me.
Fair enough, not like I care but yes, sometimes you can see a junkie thieving scrote just by the cut of his jib.Posted 1 year ago
Sure you’ve met enough to know that as well.
Yeah, I think they used to buy things at a premium then sell them dirt cheap but that didn’t work out.
Indeed, not a great business model.
My point being is that they screw people over on the price they offer as it’s often desperate folk trying to raise a bit of cash. But that’s how pawnbrokers operate, just doesn’t sit right with me.Posted 1 year ago

Or you could see a vulnerable individual in the throes of a terrible disease 😉
The smarter members of this board will of course recognize why alcoholism is a disease and heroin addiction isn’t.
Funny junkie joke.
Whats the difference between a junkie, and an alcoholic ?.
Both will steal your handbag, but the junkie will help you look for it 😆Posted 1 year ago
I think their online shop is more likely to get the prices right, while the real shops are largely about finding the hidden treasure- the posh guitar brand they’ve never heard of, that sort of thing.Posted 1 year ago
Wouldn’t it be easier just to buy from the local junkie / burglar and cut out the middle man? 🤪Posted 1 year ago
Not really,SARS 2 is the least of your worries getting near those guys!Posted 1 year ago
