You can make a real difference to charities by selling your old Books, CDs, DVDs and Games.

Use the Zapper service to donate money to one of our charity partners, and make a real difference to the lives and welfare of children and animals on this planet.

Simply enter the barcodes from your Books, CDs, DVDs and Games, and you can donate the total amount of your trade to the charity of your choice.

We have chosen these charities as we believe they are some of the best and most important UK charities in terms of the proportion of donations finding their way to the people and animals that need it (Source CaritasData). We hope you feel that they are worthy of your support too.

BBC Children In Need British Heart Foundation Book Trust DEBRA Medicins Sans Frontieres Shelter Water Aid World Wildlife Fund

To start donating to charity simply start entering barcodes and once you have completed your trade contact us to request a chosen charity.


Dozens of UK charity shops use Zapper to value and sell their books, CDs, DVDs and games. A typical high street shop will find £80 to £100 each week of stock which would otherwise be recycled.

Using a hand-held barcode scanner, volunteers can use the Zapper website to build trades of unwanted items quickly and efficiently to:

  • Clear unwanted stock
  • Make extra annual income per shop of circa £4,000+
  • Maximise returns from the sale of books, CDs, DVDs and games
  • Sell textbooks with ease, which can perform poorly in-store

Here are just a few of the charities who regularly earn money this way from their shops:

Cats Protection Samaritans Diabetes UK Oxfam St Peter's Hospice Age UK

Did you know that over 90% of books donated to UK charities are actually pulped? Donating via Zapper will result in 100% of the trade value going direct to charity.


You may be surprised at how much your unwanted Books, CDs, DVDs and Games are worth. Wouldn’t you like to release the value hidden in them?
