Best New Way to Sell Things

Great new resources on the best way to sell things – thanks NBC News.

THE NEW EBAY/AMAZON

If you’re selling something unusual – or quirky – Bonanza is the place. You’ll find rocks and fossils, Elvis platinum records, vintage lunchboxes, and just about everything else. Sellers love it because the ratio of people shopping to people selling is exceptionally high.

THE NEW CRAIGSLIST

LetGo, OfferUp, Close5, and Facebook Marketplace are all focused on helping you sell in your local area. Both LetGo and OfferUp have raised considerable money from venture capitalists. LetGo says it has more than 20 million active monthly users.

As always, if you’re selling locally try to meet the buyer in a safe, public location. More than 450 million people buy and sell on Facebook every month. And Close5 is owned by eBay.

THE NEW CONSIGNMENT STORES

TheRealReal, a luxury consignment store, and ThredUp, which is more mainstream, will both take your merchandise and then pay you a percentage of the sale price when it sells.

Poshmark allows you to post it and set the price yourself. You can then interface with the seller and pay the site a fee of $2.95 if it’s under $15, or 20 percent if it’s over $15.

THE NEW BEST FOR OLD TECH

Big stores like Amazon, Apple, BestBuy, and GameStop all have trade in/trade up programs. But you may do better by selling independently. Look at Decluttr, USell, Gazelle, NextWorth and Swappa.
