What Happened to Zumu.co?

Mel Barrios, DVDhunt

zumu.co is gone

You may have seen the commercials.  Zumu.co offers to pay cash for your used DVDs, CDs and video games. All you need to do is type in the bar-codes of your items, review what Zumu will pay you for them, put them in a box and ship them off. Once all your items are checked in, Zumu sends you a check. Sounds easy enough, right?

Not so fast. Apparently there are number of unpaid sell orders judging from the internet chatter and BBB notices.  This the Zumu notifcation being sent out to customers with unpaid transactions before the shutdown:

I the We are currently experiencing some technical difficulties with our payment system that is affecting PayPal payments. We are working as fast as we can to get this resolved. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding. We hope to have this matter fully resolved by the beginning of this coming week, and payments issued as quickly as possible! You will receive notification from PayPal once the payment has been issued! Thank you for using Zumu, have a nice day!

That last little “have a nice day” always makes me feel better.

    That’s a shame! I used them and they paid me right away. I hate to hear they are no longer living up to their promises.
