By nature humans are hoarders, we do not like getting rid of something in our possession, whether it is because we have attached a value to it (real or sentimental), we have forgotten we even own it or getting rid of it just seems like too much of a hassle.
When the inevitable spring clean comes around, what do you do with the things you no longer want or need or don’t have space for, but are still in good condition? Sell them of course! And the big question is; where do you sell them as a private individual?
The options become limited as you can not use an e-commerce platform as they are tailored to professional sellers. The stuff may not be enough to warrant a garage sale, physical flea markets happen infrequently and paper classifieds are definitely so Gen-X.
Good news is that with the digital era, online selling becomes the best option – through an established and trusted classifieds platform.
Classifieds are designed to serve the private seller first by creating a second-hand goods market which allows you to reach a wide group of potential buyers who may be interested in what you are selling. And the beauty of this community? It is both hyper local, and people from all over your city, and even country, who may have the same hobbies as you do and are looking to expand their collections and tools.
Modern classifieds will do a lot of the work for you. From recommending a price which will allow you to sell quickly, to helping you craft the perfect description to hook someone’s attention. They promote safety through education, user verification and allowing you to control how you want to be contacted. And increasingly they offer online payment and delivery solutions which give you a guarantee you’ll not get scammed. And all these are available from your laptop or mobile phone, wherever you are!
With all these benefits, you are losing out if you don’t give it a try. So before you shove the things you no longer use in a cupboard for another year, try selling online. Remember used to you, is new to someone else.
