Here are some tips for buyers and sellers.

Seller
  • Not sure how much your game is worth, simply do a quick search on GameTrader.SG for how much the game is selling.
  • If your code is unredeem, tell your potential buyer. It could entice him or her further.
  • Get ready some cash to give your seller change if needed.
  • Price your game competitively. You can check out GameTrader.SG to get a sense of how much your used game should be sold. If the price is competitive, you will find a buyer very quickly.
Buyer
  • Preowned game is always cheaper than new game of the same title.
  • Check the condition of the game before purchase. If there is sign of crack or deep scratches, try to avoid buying the game.
  • Most games in Singapore are original and non-pirated. In case you chance upon one, do note that pirated game usually don't come with proper game box or the printing on the disc is of inferior quality. If you suspect that is a pirated game, do not buy it.
  • Preowned game should defintely cost cheaper than new one. Usually it depends on how recent the game is released. The more recent released game will be more expensive than the older title. Check out the price on GameTrader.SG if you are unsure.
  • Buy and do not hesitate at a good deal. Preowned games come in limited quantity unlike brand new one. SO if the price is right, just go for it.
