Are you trying to sell stuff online and get paid quickly?

One of the best ways to speed up the path to your financial success is by turning your stuff into cash. The good news, now is the best time to sell stuff online because there are so many free ways to sell right away.

Whether you looking to make extra money this month or you are simply trying to declutter your home, selling stuff online is the fastest way to turn your stuff into cash.

I’m always amazed at the process of buying and selling stuff. The myriad of items people buy and sell online and elsewhere are endless.  Buying direct from owners is a terrific way to get things you need and want at a discounted price.

And selling things you no longer need or want is a great way to de-clutter your house and bring in some serious extra cash. The list of things we’ve sold online is endless, from cars to clothes to toys to electronics.

Our Top Ways to Sell Stuff Online

With the ever-increasing popularity of smartphone apps and marketplace websites, buying and selling online is easier than ever. Here are our most popular smartphone apps and sites that can help you sell your stuff online and bring in some serious extra cash this month.

1. BuybackBoss (Top cash for old phone)

BuybackBoss is another great place to sell your old phone because they guarantee the MOST money when it comes to selling your old phone. However, you do have to prove it to them.

Since everyone today has a mobile phone, you probably also have an old phone lying around somewhere, right?

Turn that old phone into quick cash by getting the highest price for your old phone – guaranteed.

They have three simple steps when it comes to selling your old phone.

First it only takes 30 seconds or less to get your quote. Then, you simply ship your used phone for free and even track your shipment as well. Once your item is shipped, you get the choice of getting paid via check or through PayPal.

Also, if you do happen to find somewhere online that offers you a better price, you can simply send them an email (explanation on their website) with a link to the higher offer. Once they see the better offer, they will update your offer to beat their competitors and notify you once it’s ready to go.

With a Trustpilot rating of 4.8 out of 5 and the best-price guarantee, BuybackBoss is a no-brainer for selling your stuff online.

2. OC Buyback

OC Buyback is perfect if you have an iPod, tablet, Smartwatch, AppleTV or GoPro that you need to get rid of. Also, if you have are selling your old phone, definitely compare the price with BuybackBoss because of Buyback’s highest price guarantee.

It’s extremely simple to get started with OC Buyback. First you just need to select the device you are selling, ship your device for free (or drop off locally for free) and the get paid!

You can get paid via a mailed check (USPS First Class Mail) or get your money sent to your PayPal instantly (or up to 24 hours).

Also, there is no limit on how much you can sell on OC Buyback. Therefore, it may not be a bad idea to take some of that “junk” your friends are throwing away and turn that into some quick cash! 

OC Buyback currently has a Trust Pilot rating of 4.6 out of 5. Not quite as high as BuyBack Boss, but still worth taking a look at.

3. Decluttr

If you have other electronics besides a cell phone, Decluttr is one of the best ways to sell your unwanted stuff online. Here’s how it works:

  1. First, you go to the Decluttr website to get the link for the free app and get a free instant evaluation of what you’re selling.
  2. Once you accept their offer, simply put into a box for shipping and they will send you a pre-paid shipping label.
  3. Next drop your package off at any UPS store, with any UPS driver, or with an authorized shipping dealer (you can search by your zipcode on their site)
  4. As soon as Decluttr receives your package, they will pay you the very next day by Direct Deposit, PayPal, by Check, or they will even make a donation to a charity of your choice on your behalf!

Decluttr is also a really safe way to sell your items because you aren’t selling to other individuals. Instead, Decluttr buys your stuff directly and then resells it on their site.

Categories you can sell on Decluttr:

  • CDs and DVDs
  • Video games
  • Gaming systems
  • Textbooks
  • Smartphones
  • Apple products such as iPods, iPads and iPhones
  • Kindles
  • Lego sets

I know. The Lego thing kind of threw you for a loop, didn’t it! It doesn’t really fit in with the other categories Decluttr sticks to, but apparently there’s a serious market for used Lego sets!

Get the App:

4. OfferUp

OfferUp lets you list and sell for free. It’s more of a “you’re on your own” site like Craigslist and LetGo, but is fairly popular and is well-organized. In my area it didn’t seem to have quite as many listings as LetGo, but still could be worth your effort when selling. After all, less listings often means less competition for the things you sell.


  • Antiques
  • Appliances
  • Arts and crafts
  • Cars and trucks
  • Auto parts
  • Baby and kids
  • Beauty and health
  • CDs and DVDs
  • Cell phones
  • Clothing and shoes
  • Farming
  • Furniture
  • Games and toys
  • Household

And many others as well, including Collectibles. You could sell in just about any category on this site.

Get the App

5. Amazon Seller Marketplace

Amazon has a popular program for selling your stuff online. The Amazon Seller Marketplace allows you to sell a variety of items online, including used items in many categories, as well as new items you’ve made or bought at a discount.


  • Amazon devices and accessories
  • Kindle devices and accessories
  • Automotive and powersports parts, tools, equipment and accessories
  • Baby gear (new only, excluding clothing)
  • Beauty (new only)
  • Books
  • Business products
  • Camera and photo
  • Cell phones
  • Clothing and accessories (new only)
  • Collectible coins
  • Electronics
  • Fine art collectibles
  • Grocery and gourmet food (new only)
  • Handmade items (new only)
  • Health and personal care items (new only)
  • Historical and advertising types of collectibles
  • Home and garden
  • Industrial and scientific (new only)
  • Jewelry (new only)
  • Luggage and travel accessories (new only)
  • Music
  • Musical instruments
  • Office products

And many more. Listing and selling fees apply, and the prices you’ll pay for selling stuff on Amazon vary based on how many items you plan on listing or selling in a given month and other criteria. For certain membership levels you’ll pay a monthly fee as well as individual listing and selling fees.

Given Amazon’s market share, the amount of exposure your items get could easily make up for the fees you may have to pay to sell.

6. Poshmark

Poshmark lets you sell fashion clothing and accessories online. You can search by who you want to shop for (i.e. women, men or kids), by brand name, or by item (i.e. shorts, dresses, handbags, etc.).

When you sell an item on Poshmark, they’ll send you a prepaid shipping label to send it out. They charge a small commission based on the dollar amount of the transaction as well.


  • Women’s clothing
  • Men’s clothing
  • Kids’ clothing
  • Makeup
  • Shoes
  • Handbags
  • Jewelry and accessories

Posh’s Posh Protect program, along with their customer service team, helps ensure you get authentic items when you buy, and that you get paid promptly when you sell.

Get the App:

7. 5miles

The premise behind 5miles is that it will help you buy or sell anything within 5 miles of your location, but when I looked online I was relieved to see that they offered plenty of buying selections in a broader range, up to 40 miles or so away from where we live.

It’s free to list and sell on 5miles, just like it is on Craigslist and similar sites.


  • Cars
  • Furniture
  • Cell phones
  • Household
  • Women’s clothing and shoes
  • Electronics and computers
  • Baby and kids
  • Auto parts
  • Jewelry and watches
  • Sports and outdoors
  • Collectibles and art
  • Jobs
  • Housing
  • Services
  • Garage sales

You can search by category, by specific item or by city. This is an easy-to-use site that seems to be pretty popular in many large metropolitan areas.

Get the App:

8. LetGo

LetGo uses your location to help you list stuff for sale online and find stuff you want to buy as well. It’s a free site like Craigslist and doesn’t charge any listing or selling fees.


  • Free stuff
  • Electronics
  • Cars
  • Other vehicles and parts
  • Baby and child
  • Fashion and accessories
  • Movies, books and music
  • Sports, leisure and games
  • Home and garden
  • Other

Not much more to know about LetGo. The site is super easy to use and seems to be increasing in popularity these days: I find more and more listings – at least for my somewhat major metropolitan area – as I browse on a weekly basis.

Get the App:


9. OLX

OLX helps millions around the world buy and sell things. They share listings from dozens of countries including the United States, India, Russia, the Philippines, South Africa, Portugal and many, many more.

There’s no cost to list or sell with OLX; this is a true free classified ads site.


  • Personal items
  • Properties
  • Electronics and appliances
  • Fashion
  • Jobs
  • Pets
  • Books, hobbies and sports

And more. Categories may vary based on the country you are browsing. NOTE: if you are visiting OLX’s United States site you will be redirected to Letgo.

Get the App:

10. Cash4Books

Cash4Books buys your used textbooks and other books. As with Decluttr, all you have to do is enter the ISBN (the number at the bottom of the barcode) of the book you’d like to sell and they’ll give you an offer price.

Once you’ve entered all of the ISBN numbers for the books you want to sell, and accepted the Cash4Books offer prices, they’ll send you a free prepaid shipping label that you can use to pack up and send your books to them.

After they’ve received the books and had a chance to assess their condition, etc., they’ll send you your earnings via PayPal. The site says that on average it takes about two weeks from the time you click “Sell my books” until the time you get your cash via PayPal.

Although the site buys all types of books, it looks as if the biggest payouts come from up-to-date used college textbooks.

If you’re a recent college graduate, know someone who is or can find newer versions of college textbooks at garage sales, this could be a great way to make some cash.

Get the App:

11. Trove Marketplace

Trove Marketplace focuses on buying and selling vintage furniture and decor items. You can browse via keyword, or go straight to cities near you where items are for sale.

Trove Marketplace isn’t in every major metropolitan city, however you could offer for items you’re selling to be shipped if you want to appeal to buyers outside of your area. Current cities with Trove listings include:

  • Atlanta
  • Austin
  • Boston
  • Charlotte
  • Chicago
  • Dallas
  • Detroit
  • Houston
  • Los Angeles
  • Miami
  • New York
  • Philadelphia
  • Phoenix
  • San Francisco
  • Seattle
  • Washington DC

More cities may be added by the time you’re reading this.

Note: there is a selling fee for selling your items on this site. At the time of this writing the Trove Marketplace website showed it to be 10%.

Get the App:

12. Mercari

Mercari allows you to sell your stuff online without any listing fees. However, you will pay a selling fee of 10% of the listing price, so be sure to price carefully. In other words, if you list something for $100 and a buyer bargains you down to $50, you’re still paying Mercari a $10 selling fee.

If you end up selling to a buyer who wants an item shipped to them, Mercari will help you do that by offering to print (and charge you for) a shipping label, or you can ship on your own.


  • Women
  • Men
  • Kids
  • Home
  • Vintage
  • Beauty
  • Tech
  • Sports
  • Handmade
  • Other

The “other category” can include a variety of items such as automotive (they even had cars listed in addition to auto parts), daily and travel items, musical instruments, office supplies, pet supplies and more.

As I searched the site looked like they had many items for sale in all 50 states, which indicates Mercari is a well-known and well-used site.

Get the App:

13. Dealo

Dealo touts itself as a “faster, safer way to buy and sell anything”. The site itself has very little information about how Dealo works, who is using it and where or what the fees are. Categories are not listed either, however the site states you can register, list or buy within 30 seconds.

Get the App:

14. Carousell

Carousell helps connect buyers and sellers by listing things people want to sell and coordinating groups based on similar interests.

You can browse the listings via the home page or the specific category you’re selling or buying in, or you can search via location. No listing or selling fees; you just meet up with your seller or chat online to arrange trade of money for your item.


  • For him
  • For her
  • Furniture and home
  • Kitchen and appliances
  • Beauty products
  • Design and craft
  • Baby and kids
  • Bicycles and bicycle parts
  • Outdoors and gardening
  • Musical instruments
  • Books
  • Textbooks
  • Community
  • Housing
  • Games and toys

It’s fast and easy to list on Carousell with their app.

Get the App:

15. Depop

Depop is sort of an online flea market type of a site. Lots of fun vintage items on this site. Browsing through the listings was like taking a serious step back in time and was really fun. You use the app to buy and sell, and there are no fees or commissions paid.

There are no specific categories listed; the site just says “Find something that means something”. Most of the listings that I found on the site were clothing and accessory type items such as shirts, hats, jeans, jewelry, etc.

Most of the sellers on the site listed shipping fees to appeal to those who were buying from out of the area. The site is pretty simple and easy to use with the app, so if you have some cool, different or vintage clothing or accessories, this could be the way to go.

Get the App:

16. Tradyo

Tradyo helps people buy and sell right in their local area. The site seems to be European based, however there were plenty of listings in my major metropolitan area in the U.S. Listings are free, and you can use instant chat to connect with potential buyers.

I typed in my zip code and found several items available for sale nearby. Then, just for fun I typed “90210” in the search bar (the only out-of-state zip code I know off the top of my head; yeah, I know – I’m dating myself), and there were a lot of listings for that area as well.


  • Art, antiques and collectibles
  • Autos, cars and other vehicles
  • Baby and kids
  • Bikes
  • Books and comics
  • Car accessories and parts
  • Clothing and fashion
  • Electronics, cell phones and cameras
  • Free stuff
  • Gaming consoles and games
  • Garage sales
  • Health and beauty
  • Home and furniture
  • Music
  • Services
  • Sporting goods and exercise
  • Tickets
  • Tools and equipment
  • Other

Lots of categories to choose from, and Tradyo is a site that is easy to use.

Get the App:

17. Varage Sale

With Varage Sale you can list your items for sale and then meet up with buyers in your neighborhood. There are no categories listed for searching on this site, but there is a search bar that allows you to enter what you may be looking for, along with your location so you can find items near your home or work.

You need to sign up with Facebook or an email account so they can verify who you are – all buyers and sellers have to go through a verification process before they’re approved to buy or sell on the site.

In other words, you can browse the site’s listings, but both buyers and sellers need to sign up in order to get access to contact others within the site. This is a safety precaution that many buying and selling sites are implementing these days.

No listing or selling fees and no charge to bump your listing to the top of the site. A great alternative to the traditional garage sale.

Get the App:

18. Chairish

Chairish is an online consignment store where you can sell used items in a number of categories. The site says it takes less than two minutes to list your item, and that you take home 80% of the sale price.

That’s a much higher percentage than what many brick-and-mortar consignment shops will offer to pay you since they have to cover space rental costs and employee pay and benefits.

You can sell items on Chairish to local people or ship the items out of state. Chairish helps you organize shipping arrangements too. This could be a good venue for you if you have lots of art deco or vintage items for the home.


  • Furniture
  • Art and mirrors
  • Rugs
  • Lighting
  • Decor
  • Outdoor

And more. Listing is free, the site has great tips on how to take the best photos to sell your item, and they have 24/7 customer service support as well.

Get the App:

  • Chairish for Android: No Chairish app for Android users as of yet
  • Chairish for Apple

19. Wallapop

Wallapop offers free local classified ads for you to sell your stuff on. Kind of like other flea market or classifieds apps, you simply use your app to write a short description and name your price.

Sellers figure out a plan for meeting up with buyers to exchange money and products, whether it’s meeting up in your local area or arranging shipping.

Get the App:

20. SocialSell

SocialSell has a variety of listings in many areas in the U.S. Their website isn’t worth heading to at this writing; the apps have all the information you need for buying and selling.


  • Electronics
  • Men’s apparel
  • Women’s apparel
  • Household and yard
  • Entertainment
  • Music
  • Antiques
  • Automotive
  • Children and kids
  • Collectibles and memorabilia
  • Education
  • Living
  • Outdoors
  • Sports and fitness

And more. Like Craigslist there are no listing or selling fees. Mandatory user profiles help keep sellers and buyers safe.

Get the App:

21. Vinted

With Vinted you can sell or buy used second-hand wardrobe items such as shoes, clothes, and accessories. There’s no cost to list or sell with Vinted, and like many other selling sites these days, users have to create a profile in order to enhance safety and security.


  • Women’s clothing, shoes and accessories
  • Beauty
  • Kids
  • Men’s items

You can meet up in person if you find a local buyer, or ship and get payment via PayPal.

Get the App:

22. Shpock

Shpock helps you buy and sell things in your local area. There are no listing fees or selling fees and the app makes listing your items and communicating with potential buyers easy.

Get the App:

23. Pxsell

Pxsell is the “easiest way” to sell your stuff, according to its app site. Just snap a picture, enter a few details and you’re done. This app focuses on selling in your local area and helping you designate a meet up with sellers.

You won’t pay listing or selling fees with Pxsell.

  • Recreation
  • Cars
  • Clothes
  • Health
  • Beauty
  • Home

Don’t Get Ripped Off (Here’s How)

Now that we’ve shared some of the more popular apps for selling stuff online, I want to take just a few minutes to talk about online selling and buying safety.

The world is full of con artists and other unsavory people, and it’s important to make sure you’re ahead of the game when it comes to online scammers in the selling and buying marketplace. Here are some tips that I’ve found helpful when it comes to avoiding selling scams.

We’ve not been the direct victim of a scam when selling stuff online, but that’s only because we’ve educated ourselves on what to look for to avoid getting ripped off.

Selling stuff online can be daunting, intimidating and sometimes frustrating. One time when we were selling a fishing boat, a guy got super angry at us because we had several potential buyers on the line and wouldn’t hold the boat for him until he got off work.

Another time we were selling some used furniture and a gal said she’d show up but never did. When I contacted her to ask why, she said “Oh, it was raining and I didn’t feel like going.” No phone call – nothing. She just didn’t show!

Just recently we listed a snow plow for sale. My husband got a weird text from a guy who offered to pay us over and above what we were asking if we’d accept a PayPal payment, and that he’d send his “agent” to pick up the several hundred pound plow. Sounds fishy, right?

Here are some things you can do to protect yourself as you sell your stuff online.

Don’t Deviate From Normal Payment Options

Most sites have you pay one of a couple of different ways: you can meet in person and accept cash or a cashier’s check, or you can accept a PayPal payment if you’re shipping an item.

When selling something and meeting a person directly we only accept cash – never a personal check or money order. We will accept a cashier’s check for big ticket items, but we always call and verify with the bank it’s issued off of first.

Have a First Come, First Served Rule

Don’t offer to hold items for people that may never show up unless you have a good and valid reason to do so. Holding items puts you at risk for losing out on selling your item.

If someone wants your item bad enough they’ll find a way to make it there quickly.

Beware of Giving Second Chances

If someone doesn’t show up or doesn’t do what they’ve promised, be wary. In our case with the lady who wanted to buy our furniture but never showed up, she asked if she could come another time. We didn’t answer.

We like to follow the “Screw me once, shame on you, screw me twice, shame on me” mantra when selling stuff online. If someone disses us once we won’t give them a chance to do it again.

Meet Up with Potential Buyers in a Public Place if Possible

We don’t follow this rule always, but many times we’ll meet buyers at a central location as long as it’s somewhere with a lot of traffic, such as across the street from the local police department or at a big box store such as Walmart.

It’s important to not put yourself in a situation where you’re in an isolated area with strangers.

Never Meet Up with Buyers Alone

Always bring somebody along if you’re meeting up with potential buyers too. I don’t recommend ever going alone, simply for safety reasons.

Always Tell Somebody When You’re Meeting Up with a Potential Buyer

When you’re meeting up with a potential buyer – whether alone or with somebody else – always, always leave information about where you’re going, who you’re meeting (leave the contact info you’ve been using to communicate with them), what you’re doing and when you expect to be back.

Tell your loved ones to call you and check in if you’re not back when you say you expect to be back. It probably wouldn’t hurt to bring pepper spray or some other item to protect yourself if need be too.

If Something Seems “Off”, Go With Your Gut

When you’re selling or buying something online and something seems off, it’s probably best to pull out of the deal. If someone is offering you way too much for an item, or is trying to finagle some weird payment arrangements other than what is typical, I’d bail on the deal.

There are many scam artists out there who offer to give you “this” if you’ll do “that” when you’re doing online selling and buying. For instance they’ll arrange for third-party payment, or send you over what you want and ask you to give them back the difference, or other similar odd types of requests.

These requests often come with a sob story that will play on your emotions in hopes that you’ll ignore the warning signs in an effort to help. Don’t fall for it. The world’s struggles are not all on your shoulders.

Stick to the rules and make sure you’re paid as promised with no goofy back and forth stuff. Selling stuff online can be a lucrative income source, especially if you’ve got a house full of unused stuff.

Just be sure to use selling sites and apps the way they are intended and keep a leg up on potential scam artists. This way you’ll maximize your income and make big strides toward reaching all of your financial goals and dreams.


As you can, there are so many options for you to sell your stuff online. Selling apps for both iOs and Android are picking up in popularity and people are looking beyond just eBay and Craigslist to buy your stuff. You can literally sell anything online. From cars, to selling refrigerators, to clothes and even old phones, you have money sitting in your house in the form of “stuff”.

  • I would add ThredUp for clothing. I do not make a lot, but more than if I gave it away. Thanks for the list!

  • There are scammers out there. I had a laptop for sale on letgo. Interested party said they wanted to arrange shipping to West Africa. I asked if they were wanting me to ship it. When they said yes, I sent sure, but you’ll have to pay up front including shipping charges, even offered that could pay me with Paypal. No further message. There’s folks out there looking for dummies, I guess.

  • The fact that BriskSale.com is not on here shows the writer hasn’t done their research. Do they want what’s best for their readers, or have they been bought by all of the listed sites?

    • We haven’t heard of that one, but we’ll look into it. Thanks for pointing it out!

      • Don’t bother listing this website….Scammers…listings are for Body Lotion from Bath and Body Works….$60.00, B&B Works candle $75.00 and a Victoria Secrets leggings for $180.00. And the biggie of them all….Good Value granola bars, 6-count $45.00!

        • Robyn, I am not sure what you are talking about. However, we are able to see you are associated with Brisksale, which means you are probably upset because we didn’t include Brisksale in our review? Let me apologize and we will allow our readers to do their own research on Brisksale here. <-- There is the link you wanted 🙂

    • Hi Kadi,

      Thanks for your comment. We have already had a few others (from Brisksale) making comments on here to encourage readers to head over to their website. While we don’t know enough about Brisksale to add them to our list yet, we did provide a link in one of the comments above. 🙂

  • Dear Chris,

    Have you heard of BriskSale.com? Look them up, we’ve been selling on there and the support people are very nice. They’re trying to help smaller online sellers and people starting out, like us.


    • We haven’t heard of that one, but we’ll look into it. Thanks for pointing it out! 🙂

  • I just checked out the brisksale website. There are listings for 1 bottle of Bath and Body works lotion for $65.00 and a Bath and Body works candle for $70.00….hmmmm. Each sale for under $20.00 in the store.

    • Robyn, this is the second comment from you about Brisksale 🙂 Don’t worry, we added a link so the readers can see Brisksale above this one ☝️

      • What’s up with Robyn? Speaking of suspect… =) I’d say there are enough options and details to safely assume you’ve indeed done your research. Being a new reader, I’m quite impressed. Keep up the hard work and thank you! ~ Elizabeth

  • Wow, beat the BriskSale horse guys. I personally have been using Depop and I find it fun and easy. Just wanted to add my two cents. The app works like instagram in the way that imagery is most important, along with trendy brands and styles or course. I have not heard on Vinted so I am happy I stumbled upon this article. I will have to check that platform out soon.

  • Hi Chris,
    Thanks for this article glad to have come by it, didn’t realize there were so many platforms now for buying and selling. We will have to check several of these out. As we have some furniture we want to sell and a host of other items too. :)))
    Best Tina K

    • Thanks! I hope you find some of the sites will work for you if you decide you need to sell some stuff online! 🙂

  • How does one handle sales of large items that can’t be transported to a public location? Does the buyer come to your residence to see the item?

    • Generally, yes. But if it makes you feel more comfortable, have another person there with you when someone comes to view the item.

  • These apps are cool but you guys completely forgot about the App “Want It” Its a newer app but if it’s in your city it’s for sure the best app to buy and sell on. I’ve tried just about all of the apps mentioned above and used letgo the most until a friend told me about Wantit but you just can’t beat it its a solid solution.

    • I’m glad you found something that works great for you and that you like. I may have to check that out! Thanks for mentioning it. 🙂

  • Is there any selling site (other than Ebay) that doesn’t require me to download an app onto my phone that asks for permissions to my contact list, the ability to change the information on my SD card, etc. I have looked at the apps for Poshmark, Mercari, and a couple of others and the permissions they ask for in order to download the app are too intrusive. I’m not opening up my contact list, which includes business clients, to these apps.

    • You would just have to explore each one you are interested in to see if those permissions are required or not. I’m sorry there’s not an easier way that I am aware of. The other option is to try to sell your stuff locally through a Facebook sales group or other group in your community. I wish you luck!

  • Thank you for sharing this great information, Chris.
    I came across this article when I was actually trying to remember the name of a popular company that lists things for buyers and sellers. I’m so glad this came up in the search.
    I love some Apps I have, but I prefer to do All my business transactions on my desktop computer. I do fully realized that using apps is not a trend, and they will be the common method of making purchases and selling stuff, more sooner than later.
    Thank you, again, for providing these great Resources. I have a lot of good stuff just sitting around that I want to sell, so I will check out each one of them.

    • Yes, there’s no reason to let stuff sit around taking up valuable real estate space in our homes. I’m glad the information could help you out to dispose of stuff you don’t need or use and get extra cash at the same time. 🙂

  • Selling $100+ Brand new New balance tennies. Being a new-bie and not wanting to meet buyers personally during covid esp which is best site to sell on?? Thx

    • Hi Nancy, you have a lot of great options if you don’t want to meet people in person because of COVID. I think your best best is to sell in a local swip swap Facebook groups If you need help finding one, just go into Facebook and search for groups with the phrase “your city swip swap”. You can collect payment via PayPal, Venmo, Zelle or even cash, and just leave your shoes on your doorstep.

      My family has been selling things on Swip Swap for years and it’s customary to mostly leave the item by the front door and have them place cash underneath the doormat.

  • I would like to know , when can I published , what I want to sell , I did it today and it does’nt show in the comment , Why ?

    • Hi Maria,

      Are you trying to sell something here inside the comments? All comments must be approved and we unfortunately allow for soliciting or selling inside our comments section. Thank-you for inquiring.

  • I have been selling on facebook marketplace for a couple months with success, but the last 4 weeks have been a red tape nightmare. I have been asked for a photo of my license to confirm my identity 5 times so I can be paid and asked for my license and SS card photo 4 times for a 1099. Each review of these documents took many days, only to be asked for them again. My account has been frozen for weeks now while I wait for them to process.
    I really liked the marketplace shipping becuse it was print the label and slip into a mailbox. What other platforms have this feature, being as my post office is remote and rarely open. p.s. I sell mainly small jewelry or crystal items, so a lot of your list doesn’t apply. Offering shipping is important for my items.

  • Thank you for this helpful article!
    Just a note, I went to check out LetGo in the Google Play store and it looks like it merged with OfferUp. (June 2021)
