Selling Unwanted Stuff

There’s money to be made in the things you own, but no longer want or need. It’s not a good idea to just throw it away or take it to a second hand store, because you’re going to be out money. Online there are there are several sites where you can sell your unwanted stuff for cash back. Here’s how to go about it.

Selling Unwanted Stuff

First you’ll need to make a list of the items you want to sell. Gather these items up and sort them out so you can find them easy when they do sell. Just remember, you won’t get the full retail price so you have to determine what you want for the item before you sell it. High prices won’t sell at all so keep the price reasonable. People are buying used goods to save money in most cases so make the price attractive for them. Try to clean the items up some before you sell them and discard broken items as these won’t sell in most cases, unless it’s for parts like electronics.

You can bargain for a good price with the buyer, if you feel the item is worth more money. If you try to bargain too much, the buyer will look elsewhere. If you sell on sites like eBay, look at similar items and try to adjust your prices accordingly if these aren’t selling. Drop the price quite low if you just want to get rid of it quickly. Here are some site suggestions for selling your goods online.

eBay

One place you can sell your unwanted stuff is through the auction site eBay. There are many people looking for the things that you have to sell and some of them will pay top dollar for goods you might think are junk because they are collectors or just looking for a bargain on what you have to offer.

Craigslist

If you don’t want to go through the hassle of packing your items up for shipping, you can use Craigslist. This is an online classified site and you can list your items in the local area for sale. This makes it easy to find buyers that are close to you that are looking for your bargains. You could even sell everything as one lump sum as there are discount store owners and others looking for the goods you’re offering.

Amazon

If you have a product at home that Amazon.com sells in its inventory, you can sell it back to another buyer if you don’t want it. You’re not going to get the full Amazon price for it, but you’ll still get some of your money back. These products go under the “new and used” section of Amazon. This is great for a quick sale if you need to move a popular item quickly. You can even send your items to Amazon and have them ship for you, but you’ll pay warehouse fees so it’s easier to ship on your own if you can manage this.

Facebook

This is easy to do if you want to sell something in your local city as the person can just come and pick up the item once you have agreed to a price. You can also do auctions through many Facebook groups too.
