Declutter by Selling Online- Online Sales Sites You Should Know About

Everybody wants to sell something. They’ve heard it’s easy. They’ve heard you make money. But what is the skinny on online sales sites, for real?

Online Sales Sites You Should Know About to help you declutter (Beyond eBay)

There aren’t many places that will sell your stuff for you. Ten years ago, there was an eBay reseller on every corner in my town. Today? None are left. None. What the owners told me is that 90% of the stuff that people want to sell is junk. The 10% of saleable items is where you make the money. And there just wasn’t enough of the profitable items for those places to make money.

Flash forward to 2018, I have a handful of eBay reseller names in my back packet, but none of my clients, NONE, have ever been willing to hand over their items and pay the 40% of the sales price to the seller.

In general, if you are going to try to sell your stuff online, be aware that:

  • Name brands sell better.
  • Pictures matter! If you aren’t willing to take several good pictures of your item, don’t bother.
  • Small items that ship easily sell better, but you can actually ship anything.
