Notes about Trade-ins

I just updated the Trade-in rates. For those that bother to read it to the end, you will notice that the rates are temporarily up noticeably, nearly double.

The value of second-hand figures on the market is about 40-60% of retail. It's tough to get above that since online stores will typically discount as much as 30%. So, why haggle with a private individual when you can just pick what you want?

The thing to remember is that I am working with the secondary market as well, and I need to make a profit on top of that. Don't get me wrong, the trade-ins can turn into a sweet deal. However, they can also go terribly, terribly wrong. Notably, I have bins upon bins of "scrap" models that are worthless except as base decoration. If that.

I have to be very picky with what I re-sell to clients. They have to be as-new condition.
