Since 1994 GEMM has been known by aficionados of music collecting as the site for buying and selling vinyl records, CDs, posters, and other music collectibles. GEMM has now enabled its sellers to include books and other non-music related products such as DVDs and video games.

to ‘Global E-Commerce Mega Marketplace’”
, says CEO and founder, Roger Raffee. Digital downloads have wiped out a big chunk of the trading in vinyl and CDs that used to go on in GEMM. “We realize we have to expand to survive”, said Roger recently at his headquarters in beautiful beach-side La Jolla, California. “A lot of music sellers also sell books”, explained Roger. “They’ve been asking us for years to help them sell books, to provide them with another outlet for their book selling business”.
After registering on GEMM, sellers can now easily upload their Amazon catalogs directly on to the GEMM website and have them appear live in less than 5 minutes. Roger vows GEMM will never harm sellers by introducing digital products that compete with their catalogs and items for sale. GEMM still has the largest selection of vinyl records and rare CDs from more sellers world-wide than anywhere else on the internet.
