Continue reading to learn which apps to download the next time you want to sell something and put some money in your pocket.
In 2021, here are the 10 Best Apps for Selling Stuff
eBay :- eBay, founded in 1995, is the world's largest online marketplace, with over 182 million buyers. On eBay, you can sell items in one of two ways: auction or fixed-price listing. The auction feature is most likely the app's most well-known feature. Simply upload a photo of what you want to sell, set the starting bid, and decide how long the auction will last.
Remember that once an auction ends, you are legally obligated to sell the item for the winning bid. Buyers can also use eBay's automatic bidding system, which bids in increments higher than the previous bid.
Facebook Marketplace :- Another neighborhood-focused selling app, Facebook Marketplace, gives you a good chance of getting rid of your unwanted items and earning some extra cash. After all, Facebook Marketplace is used by 800 million people in 70 countries.
When it comes to selling apps, Facebook Marketplace has little structure. Items for sale are tailored to your geographic location, as with many apps. However, once you've uploaded photos of the item for sale and found a potential buyer, it's up to you to arrange delivery and payment. However, with everyone and their mother (literally) on Facebook, it remains a solid selling option.
Nextdoor :- Nextdoor, a neighborhood-specific social network, also has a For Sale and Free section. It's a good option for selling (and buying) items in your neighborhood. To list an item for sale, go to the bottom of your iPhone/Android screen, tap the plus sign, compose a new message, and then tap the For Sale and Free section. Following that, you enter information such as the price, description, and photos.
Another perk? Your ad will appear in the newsfeeds of your neighbors, even if they aren't specifically looking for items for sale. Items for sale will appear alongside road closures, neighborhood events, and other information. Having said that, there is a search option that allows you to limit your results to only for sale or free items.
OfferUp :- OfferUp is a great app for buyers because it allows you to sell anything from used cars to clothes to baby items. Why? Because every seller has a rating, you can get a better idea of the seller's caliber. Another advantage? According to OfferUp, you can list an item for sale in 30 seconds or less. Upload photos of the item, then enter a title, category, condition, item description, location, and price. Buyers can then request additional information about the item or make an offer.
You can also choose whether to sell the item locally or ship it nationwide with OfferUp. Are you a conscientious seller? Then, to reach more potential sellers, promote your item through the OfferUp app. In terms of payment, if you sell the item locally, you will be paid directly by the seller when they receive the item.
CPlus for Craigslist :- CPlus for Craigslist, the app incarnation of the behemoth online classified website, is an excellent tool for converting your unwanted items into cold, hard cash. It's worth noting that the app is a third-party app that Craigslist has officially licensed.
This is how it works: You list an item for sale in the same way you would on the desktop version of Craigslist: you install a directory, a title, a description, and, finally, a price.CPlus, on the other hand, notifies sellers when a new item is listed, automatically enables geolocation, and offers a variety of display options.
Poshmark :- Poshmark allows you to sell everything from women's clothing to handbags and shoes, as well as jewelry and makeup. This app, which is an online fashion commerce marketplace, is a great tool for the fashion-forward set who want to clean out and update their closet while also making some money. Do you still not believe us? At any given time, Poshmark has over 25 million items for sale from 5,000 brands.
Poshmark and similar services provide sellers with prepaid shipping labels via the Poshmark app. They have the option of receiving their earnings via direct deposit or check. Remember that Poshmark takes a commission on each sale: a flat $2.95 on sales under $15 and a 20% commission on sales $15 and up. Posh Protect is available to buyers. If the item you purchased does not match the listing, you will receive a full refund.
Tradesy :- Tradesy is yet another trendy selling app. Tradesy was founded in 2012 by entrepreneur Tracy DiNunzio as a way for women to "connect their closets," and it lives up to its name with its simple snap a photo and upload model.
Sellers receive a prepaid shipping label to ship their goods after they sell, and they can even keep a well-stocked Tradesy "closet" to continue monetizing their closets. Tradesy charges a flat commission fee of $7.50 for items selling for less than $50 and a 19.8 percent commission rate for items selling for $50 or more. Sellers can withdraw funds from the Tradesy app using Paypal, a debit card, or a wire transfer.
8.5Miles :- Dr. Lucas Lu launched 5Miles in 2014, and its simple, easy-to-navigate user interface uses your phone's location to share your listings with buyers in your area, making it an ideal avenue for listing big-ticket items that may cost more to ship than they're worth.
The app has been downloaded over 14 million times, so sellers can expect a large number of interested buyers, but not at the expense of safety: In addition to limiting what personal information can be shared in the messaging interface, 5miles employs a triple verification process (phone, email, and social media).
Decluttr :- Decluttr is aimed squarely at anyone looking to sell unwanted video games, CDs, DVDs, gadgets, and books. It simplifies the process of listing items by allowing you to scan barcodes and automatically enter product information. It also provides free shipping for sellers, as well as payment options such as PayPal, bank deposits, and checks.
Its market is fairly large, with approximately 4 million customers, so you should have no trouble selling items. It's also simple to view and manage orders, thanks to the app's intuitive dashboard.
Vinted :- Here's an app that allows you to sell anything from clothing and shoes to strollers and lamps. Essentially, if you have any household items that need to be sold, Vinted is worth a shot. Vinted will pay you the full value of your sales if you list and sell for free.
The app itself is simple to use, with a simple layout and large icons and images on the interface. Listing is as simple as uploading photos and adding descriptions, and you can set your own price and add discounts along the way if you believe your item requires assistance.
What Kind of Products Can You Sell Using These Apps?
You no longer need to load bulky items into your car and drive around looking for someone willing to buy your unwanted items. You can now quickly photograph them, write a brief description of them, and upload them to an app. You can sell a variety of items, including:
- Designer clothing, shoes, and handbags
- Appliances and furniture
- Electronics and household goods
- Large-ticket items, such as used cars
- Baby clothes and accessories
How Much Does a Stuff-Selling App Cost?
Many of the apps are free to use for both buyers and sellers. With a free app, you list your items for sale and only pay a selling fee (usually a couple of dollars) if you want to "boost" your item and get it seen more frequently. Otherwise, the app is free, and you must list your own items.
