-- The security of getting an authentic working game is essential for trading. Many gamers have shown disapproval of other sites which have gamers send their trades directly to each other. This leads to one of the major problem with the other sites. There is NO guarantee that the other gamer will ship the game or if he/she does ship the game there is NO guarantee that the game will work. Here at Gamezola we take away that risk by asking gamers to send their games into our offices for verification. After verification, the games are swapped and sent to the new owners along with a tracking number. Gamezola’s policy requires that all traded games must have the disc, original case, artwork, and manual so that the games sustain their re-trade value. This is a crucial difference that makes Gamezola stand out from other trading venues.
Gamezola hits the video game trading scene for gamers with not so deep pockets. NPD reports that last year alone, video games have generated $12.5 billion in sales. Video games these days can cost over $60.00 at retail price. Gamezola is committed to offering its community a way to not spend so much on games by providing a venue for easy trading. The site’s design is very simple to understand. You list your game for a game you want. An eBay-like search field is provided that lists all current games up for trade. Listing a game up on Gamezola is free as well.
Tracking games can be a pain, but not for Gamezola traders. Each trade’s event is logged from the moment the trading starts. Each occurrence is displayed to their traders giving them an ease of mind that their game is actively being traded.
Gamezola does NOT use a confusing point system, but utilizes a token system for trade to make the trading process easy. Each trade costs only ONE token, simple as that. Purchase of tokens is made easily and securely with the use of PayPal which is more widely used due to the growth of eBay.
Here is what Simon Lee, Chief Operating Officer of Gamezola, said, “We are simply gamers who just got tired of spending so much on video games, so we started developing a website called Gamezola to provide a safe and secure community for gamers to trade their games.”
