Really? Don't SELWG take 10% of sales or something? I reckon that's probably all they get out of the deal.


All?

No, admittedly I have no idea what the turnover of the Bring & Buy actually is. So yes you're right it could be substantial.

Surprising to hear.
I wonder what the real reason is?

To be honest, I haven't bought anything from a Bring and Buy for ages - it always seems to comprise lots of overpriced plastic GW stuff.
But I have sold plenty of stuff at them. Mind you, I buy less now and tend to buy those things I want rather than whims, so I have less stuff I want to sell.
Still think its a great shame it won't be there.
