MPB is the largest global platform to buy, sell and trade used photography and videography kit. We are the simple, safe and circular way to trade, upgrade and get paid for kit.

MPB is not a marketplace. We buy kit directly from visual storytellers and our team of product specialists evaluates all items before reselling them. Every item is MPB approved so you never question the quality of products you purchase.

Our dynamic pricing engine is data driven by supply and demand and provides the right price upfront. The value of kit is based on factors including age, popularity, brand and condition. Users spend an average of a third less when buying used kit vs. brand new. On average, our customers earn £650 each time they sell to us.

While visual storytelling is our main passion, circularity is at the centre of MPB. We promote sustainability, diversity and inclusion in everything we do.

We prioritise inclusive recruitment and support employees with extensive training and development. Through partnerships, marketing and procurement, we promote inclusive visual storytelling and a circular economy for all photographers and videographers.

Our business model is 100% circular. All packaging is 100% plastic free. Our cloud-based platform uses 100% renewable electricity. We send zero in-bound or operational waste to landfills. We’re set to reach net zero carbon for our buildings by 2025, data centres by 2030, and courier services by 2035.

We’ve served more than 625,000 visual storytellers and every year we recirculate more than 400,000 cameras, lenses and accessories — all of which come with a six-month warranty after being carefully inspected by our product specialists. 
MPB provides first-class customer service. Customers can receive support through our Help Centre or by speaking with an expert over the phone or via live chat. Our outstanding service is reflected by our positive customer reviews.
With over a decade of experience buying and selling kit, MPB is trusted by thousands of visual storytellers in the UK. We’re rated ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot with more than 19,000 reviews.
