Letgo

Letgo is designed to let users buy and/or sell whatever they want in their local area. This includes electronics, cars, clothing, accessories, sports memorabilia, collectibles, movies, books, music, home items, garden items, and more. What is different about letgo is that is discourages sellers from shipping items to buyers. Instead, letgo encourages users to interact via a private chat feature to arrange an in-person sale. Listings show the approximate location (but not the exact address) of where the item was posted, so buyers can see how far it is from their town.

Gone

All you have to do to get started with Gone is snap a picture or record a video of your used product. The used product can be used electronics, gadgets or small appliances. If Gone determines that an item can be resold, the company will make you an offer. If you accept the offer, Gone will pick up the item from your house or send you prepaid shipping materials and a printed label to drop off at any UPS location. It will also list the item and find a buyer for you, so you can just sit back and relax. As long as your item passes inspection and sells successfully, you’ll receive your payment. If your item doesn’t sell in 30 days, you’ll have the option to lower the price or receive your item back at no cost. Gone makes selling your old tech stuff so easy.

Poshmark

With Poshmark, you can sell your old clothing and accessories. Users who sign up create a virtual closet. The virtual closet is where you can display items you would like to sell. Make sure the items you are trying to sell are in good condition or it won’t fly.

Mercari

Mercari is more of a flea market application as it includes handmade items. It allows users to buy and sell a wide variety of new, used and handmade items. Items range from clothing and beauty products to collectibles and video games. Mercari originated in Japan, where it’s become a mobile shopping sensation, and launched its app in the U.S. in 2014.

Ebay Valet

Ebay is great for making money from selling online. The hard thing with eBay at times, is that it is hard to find a buyer. It is easy to sell online if it is eBay that is the buyer! Ebay wants to pay you for your old phones, new phones, or all your phones! Send your new or used phone to eBay Valet and make money. Click here to get a quote. Find out how much you can get! I know people who make a living off of selling on Ebay. My wife sells about 2-5 guitars a month using Ebay and it has become a tremendous help in our finances.

Amazon

I always used Amazon for books that I needed for school and still use it for books when I am working towards an upcoming certification with my job. It is incredibly easy to sell used text books on Amazon as they are in high demand. Hundreds of people are doing it every day and making money with it too! When you hear of people making a living by selling their things on ebay, there are people doing this same thing with Amazon.


If these apps aren’t doing it for you because maybe you are a bit more old fashioned, then check these simple ways to make money for your old things.

  • Have a yard sale or garage sale
  • Donate and get a tax deduction
  • Sell your scrap metal
  • Invest your profits to make even more
