Selling used goods
If you’re looking to sell items that you no longer need, first make sure that the items are in good condition. Next, decide if you want to focus on your local area or if you are willing to ship the item. For larger items that are difficult to ship, like furniture, you may need to focus on your local area. In this case, a location-based marketplace might be the way to go: you can stipulate that the buyer will have to pick up the item from you and how you would like the buyer to pay. You can also write a description of the item pointing out its best qualities and letting potential customers know of any issues it might have.
If you don’t mind shipping an item, you can also list it on non-location-based marketplaces. Whichever marketplace you choose, follow the instructions to set up an account and be sure to take high-quality pictures of your items from multiple angles so that potential buyers know what they are getting. To price your item, consider how much you paid for it originally, how much wear it has and the price of similar items on the same marketplace. Be aware that the marketplace will probably take a cut of the proceeds from the sale. The marketplace will typically be responsible for receiving payment from the buyer and dispensing funds to you.
