Help Charities by Selling Used Games Online

June 10, 2010 -

Glyde is a recently launched online marketplace which bills itself as a “safe, simple and accessible” way to buy or sell used media. Thanks to a new initiative, it now makes donating to 501(c)(3) charities very simple as well.

To sell a used book, game, movie or CD and donate all, or a portion of the selling price, to charity, simply list the item and choose a charity. After the item sells, Glyde will ship you a pre-addressed and pre-paid mailer for the item. Just drop it in the mail and that’s that. Glyde will take a 10% cut and recoup the cost of the pre-paid packaging as well.

Once the buyer receives the item, the donated funds will be sent to the charity of the seller’s choice. Glyde has stores set that will benefit the Red Cross (which has Going Rogue for only $3.50!), Reading is Fundamental, the Children’s Health Fund, the Accelerated Cure Project and the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo.

“Doing good has never been so easy,” said Simon Rothman, CEO of Glyde. “We know that gamers have big hearts and we’ve created a painless way to turn the stuff they don't want into cash for charities.”

 I've sold about 5 ps3 games on this page and purchased 1 wii game and so far its been a pretty good deal. You get more than you would at gamestop.

Glyde.  Sounds like a line of personal lubricants* but it's not.

Turns out it's a distributer of personal lubricants.  It's also a brand of vegan condoms.

Andrew EisenFeel free to leave us suggestions on Facebook or Twitter too. We're going to be busy but we'll try our best to keep an eye on 'em.08/31/2015 - 8:59pm
Andrew EisenIt's an interesting idea though. If we do anything, we probably won't know until after the site goes offline so keep an eye on GP social media for announcements.08/31/2015 - 8:59pm
Andrew EisenYeah, we could use my Twitch chat box too. There's always IRC but we don't currently have a GamePolitics channel.08/31/2015 - 8:57pm
Goth_SkunkThough I think the limit is 9 at a time in the hangout, so anyone who can't get in would be stuck out in the 'on air' portion.08/31/2015 - 8:57pm
Andrew EisenFor the show, I'd like the chat open to anyone who wants to watch.08/31/2015 - 8:55pm
PHX CorpI could Set Up a Temporary chatroom on My twitch.TV page while GP is busy updating the site(since I'll be Fighting Megaman Legacy Collection on Xbox one)08/31/2015 - 8:54pm
Goth_SkunkI don't see a problem with inviting viewers. It's not like I'm advocating this to be an open forum, just something specific to GP members.08/31/2015 - 8:53pm
