apps to sell stuff

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 in 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 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 Earnings can be withdrawn from the Tradesy app via PayPal, debit card or ACH transfer. 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 who 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.
