How To Obtain Authentic Movie DVD’s Through Online Auction Niche Sites

By Jerry McGahan

In today’s busy world, shopping online has become a part of life.

It supplies you the opportunity to surf from the comfort of your offices and homes even at odd hours. This includes everything from electronic digital items to old fashioned coins. People are buying anything and everything from such online auction sites.

Digital video disks have become a hot item. For deal hunters purchases from these online auction sites are a good way to shop for movies. As a rule sites like amazon and ebay were in the past the best locations to shop for movie DVDs online.

These days having said that, there are many eBay alternatives available in the market, which cater to a very niche audience looking for movie DVDs.

These smaller auction sites often cater only to a small geographic region rather than the entire globe like eBay. They often provide friendlier service. Ebay because of its mammoth size is not intuitive to beginners.

The greatest challenge for both buyers and merchants is the stealing of copyrighted material. The online market is flooded with pirated movie DVDs which deny the producers their due. Alternatively buyers are cheated as the quality of these pirated DVDs is of high quality.

The following are a few recommendations you should remember while searching for authentic movie DVDs.

* Buy using a reputable website. Some of the larger websites do not check the credentials of the seller and thus pirated DVDs. As hard as the larger sized websites may try to police their websites in good faith there is just too many users to watch. Things are a bit different on the smaller websites. Like a small community in the real world, people get to know each other much better than in a large city.

* You should make sure you buy the DVD from the original label that is manufacturing it. Use the name of the movie and type it into your browser query field.

* Be aware of the discharge date of the movie DVD, if for example, the movie is a recent release. Movie on DVDs are usually released a about a week after the release of the movie. Thus if, a DVD has been placed on an online auction site a few days within the release of the movie it is most likely a unlicensed version. You should always check a little further to conclude if the offer is a legal purchase.

Turn back the hands of time and experience again a time watching your favorite childhood movie if you like or visit the future. * Look for the release date of the movie if the flick is a recent release. Dvd videos are routinely released a week or so after the release of the movie. So if a DVD is up for an online auction a couple of days after the release of the movie, it is most likely pirated.

* Authentic DVDs are not shipped in bundles unless it is part of a series. If you come across DVDs, which are bundled, 3in1 or in 1 be cautious and do some more research to make sure it’s a legitimate sale.

* Newly released genuine DVDs do not come in bundles unless they are part of a series. If you come across DVDs that are bundled 3-in1 or 5-in-1 don’t buy them.

Keeping all of these tips in mind you can comfortably shop for authentic movie DVDs online and cherish your favorite titles in the comfort of your home. Remember buying a pirated DVD is an unlawful act and you could face prosecution for it.
