From the sweater your kid grew out on to an old car you used during college, there is definitely some stuff you might want to get rid of. Yes, they might have sentimental value, but keeping them is just going to add more clutter to your house. And since Marie Kondo said that we have to throw anything that doesn’t spark joy, then maybe it’s high time for you to do so.
While we do not discourage you from donating used goods, selling them isn’t a bad idea. After all, little (or much if you sell a lot) extra money won’t hurt. If you agree with this, then why not sell your used items with just a few taps on your phone?
One’s trash indeed can be another one’s treasure, and because of this popular saying, these apps make selling used goods as easy as 1, 2, 3:
Who doesn’t know eBay? With approximately 182 million users worldwide, eBay remains one of the leading platforms for selling used items. From used clothing to used vehicles, you can pretty much sell everything on eBay. (Tip: Do a background check before buying, for example, a used vehicle.)
Plus, using this app increases your chances of selling items efficiently because of its large customer base. The app is also user-friendly, a result of many years of hard work.
- Facebook Marketplace
Another amazing app where you can sell used goods is Facebook. Approximately one-third of the world’s population uses Mark Zuckerberg’s app, which means that you can reach billions of people.
A great advantage of using this app is that you can check the potential buyer’s profile to see if he or she is reliable. Managing conversations and listing products using Facebook Marketplace is also a breeze since it is separated from your personal business.
With over 50 million downloads, this app is another groundbreaking thing that technology has gifted us. LetGo makes selling a breeze through its auto-recognition feature. All you have to do is take a picture of the item, upload it, and the app automatically tags it and gives it an appropriate title.
LetGo also lets you see the location of your potential buyers, which comes in handy if you don’t want to drive or ship the product to a far place.
This app boasts an amazing feature that protects sellers from scammers. OfferUp requests buyers to scan their ID’s first before they can make a purchase. This offers you extra security in a world of many scammers.
As a bonus, you can actually build your reputation in the community through your seller profile.
One of the greatest benefits this app offers is its free shipping option. Once you choose your item to be shipped through the UPS, the fee is waived. Having a free shipping option attracts a lot of customers, so listing a used item in this app guarantees its sale.
Selling used goods are very easy nowadays, thanks to technology. Don’t miss this chance and start decluttering your home now!
