12 Best Apps to Sell Used Stuff Online

    Do you have some things you don’t use lying around your house and need a way to make some extra cash? You can sell these used items and make some money online. With these apps, you can sell your items safely, locally, and without that much effort. Here are the seven best apps to sell stuff online:

    1) LetGo

    From used smartphones to used cars, you can find almost anything on this app. It is pretty safe to use since you won’t have to give out your personal information. Keep in mind, however, that transactions are made in person, so it’s better to invite a friend to go with you to meet the buyer in a public place.

    2) Poshmark

    Poshmark is a great place to sell used clothes and accessories online. They charge a commission of 2.95% on sales under $15, 20% on sales $15 or more. When you’ve sold something, they will provide you with a pre-paid and pre-addressed label for your convenience, which is ready to put on your package. It can then either be collected from your home for free or dropped off at a USPS mailbox. 

    3) Mercari

    With Mercari, you can sell a huge variety of things, without having to worry about meeting the buyer in person. Listing an item is free and only takes a few minutes to set up. Take a few pictures, add a description, and enter your price. Piece of cake! Once you sold your item, you can take advantage of the Mercari and UPS partnership by bringing your item to a UPS Access Point where an associate will prepare and ship your package. There is a flat 10% selling fee, which is only charged once the sale has been completed. 

    4) Tradesy

    This app was created by Tracy DiNunzio in 2012. Its main goal is to simplify the process with a simple “snap and upload.” Be aware that Tradesy is more suited for those who wish to sell authentic, high-quality items with minimal wear. For worn-out clothes and unbranded items, you should use something else. They charge a fixed $7.50 fee for items that cost less than $50, and a 19.8% rate for stuff that costs $50 or more. Earnings can be withdrawn from the Tradesy app via PayPal, debit card, or ACH transfer. 

    5) Decluttr

    Mobile apps like Decluttr can help you sell used tech items more easily. You can sell things like smartphones, tablets, DVDs, and more. If you are selling your smartphone, select the make, model, and condition of it, and it’ll give you a price instantly. For CDs, DVDs and games, simply enter the barcode. Once your order has been completed, pack your box and attach the free shipping label onto the box. There are then four super easy ways to ship your box through a UPS Store, UPS Customer Center, Authorized Retail Outlet, or a UPS Driver. Once the item is received at their warehouse, it will be processed, and you’ll receive your payment the day after.

    6) 5miles

    5miles is great because it connects buyers and sellers that live around your neighborhood and does this by using your phone’s GPS. To sell an item, you simply take a photo and enter a brief description. This listing will be seen by thousands of potential buys that can make an offer by sending a text message. 

    7) Chairish

    Are you looking for a place to sell home decorating and design products? Chairish is a great marketplace for sellers that want to sell things like vintage decor, furniture, art, and others. The great thing about Chairish is that sellers can arrange in-person pickup. There is, however, a minimum listing price of $25. You can withdraw the money via PayPal after the 48-hour return guarantee has passed.

    8) Facebook Marketplace

    One of the best apps to sell used stuff that most people overlook is Facebook Marketplace. Facebook connects over 800 million sellers and buyers for free. All you need to have is a personal Facebook account, take good pictures, and list your items for sale. It’s also rather safe since you can verify which region the buyer lives, if you have any mutual friends or if it’s a fake profile. 

    9) Depop

    Depop is a very user-friendly app in which you can sell your clothes to other users online. All you need to do is download the app for free, create an account, take pictures and descriptions of your items, and post them for sale. Keep in mind Depop charges a fee of 10% on every sale, and in order to cash out, you’ll need PayPal that charges a fee of 2.9% plus $0.30.

    10) Cash4Books

    Do you have hundreds of books and textbooks accumulating dust on your shelf? Cash4Books is a great and easy way to make some spare money online. All you need to do is type the books ISBNs on their website to get a quote, ship them the books for free, and get paid via check or PayPal.

    11) Craigslist

    Craigslist is a well-known and established classified advertising website. You can sell or rent virtually anything to its more than 20 million users for free. However, you need to be wary of scam artists there and check if the buyer is legitimate before closing the deal.

    12) eBid 

    eBid is an online auction site in which you can list your items on a large marketplace for free. It has lower fees than their competitors, and they’re very transparent in the selling process. Another major advantage is that eBid has a large audience, which will potentially make your items be sold faster. They also offer more features for people who are willing to pay for a premium membership, such as more visibility.
