5 LOCAL ONLINE SITES TO SELL STUFF

Use a local market place for those things around the house you want to sell for free

  1. Amazon
  2. Craigslist
  3. EBay
  4. Facebook Marketplace
  5. Swappa

Amazon

Yes you can sell both new and used items on Amazon. If you’re only planning to sell a few items you can open a private seller account. You will be charged a small listing fee like $0.99 plus a percentage on the sale of an item. So not really a free way to sell but at least cheap and on a very trusted site with extremely high volume buyers.

Craigslist

You can easily list your items “for sale by owner” free
on Craigslist, just choose the respective category, drop in the title and lots of details, then your price and your email. Craigslist uses the email system to direct prospective buyers to you. Don’t frget to use good photos so all can see what’s on offer.

EBay

EBay has been around forever and is still one of the most used sites for selling. Everything gets sold on EBay, from the cheap and nasty to very high ticket items and everything in between. Remember that listing fees may vary or start from $0.00 but fees on sales will always be payable.

Faacebook Marketplace

Facebook Marketplace is probably the easiest place to sell online for free. You probably already have an fb account and posting is as simple as going to marketplace and listing an ad for sale then providing a description, price and some photos. Of course at some point you will need to make arrangements to meet with buyers so they can view your goods and pay. This can sometimes be time consuming and one of the drawbacks to selling on this platform.

Swappa

Swappa is a user-to-user marketplace for buying and selling new and gently used technology. Buyers and sellers connect directly and all devices must be fully functional to be sold or listed on Swappa. Swappa employs a customer service team that reviews listed devices to ensure they meet this requirement.” – Source: Wikipedia. If this suits your needs you may try Swappa for selling your used tech items.
