Online music storage and second-hand retailer Murfie has announced that customers can now buy CDs from any online service and ship them directly to their Murfie collections.

Previously you would need to ship a CD to yourself from an online store, and then send it off to Murfie, usually at an additional cost, but Murfie will now accept direct deliveries for free (with the inclusion of a Murfie user ID in the address).

Customers who send their CDs to Murfie by any method can choose to have Murfie sell them or rip and store them. Of course, to stay above anti-piracy laws if you have the CD ripped you can't then sell the physical copy to someone via the service.

While Amazon's AutoRip will send you MP3 files with the purchase of a CD or LP, Murfie is the only service that offers lossless versions (and streaming) in addition to the physical discs.
