Best Apps and Sites to Sell the stuff you don’t use or need anymore

A chair that doesn’t quite work with the rest of the room anymore, a phone you have replaced, a bicycle, an exercise machine you’ve barely used. We all have unused, replaced, or no-longer-appealing-to-us objects lying around. Inspired by Marie Kondo’s “decluttering” method (the famous “if it doesn’t bring you joy, let it go”), we have dived deep into the web in search for the best sites and apps to help you create value out of things that – just on the surface – look like useless.

Just as important, consider these options to go on the hunt for good finds and affordable prices yourself. Buying used items can sometimes prove to be of excellent value and convenience! Whatever your style is, we hope you find the perfect option for you. Let’s get to it!


These services have the great added value of getting access to millions of buyers in your proximity, as well as around the world.


Classic within classics, remember that your favorite go-to site for buying online is also a great way to sell online. Listing your items at Amazon Marketplace  makes them accessible to millions of customers. Unlike Ebay it’s does not have an auction format so, the more competitive the price, the faster it’ll sell.


Marketed as a “creative marketplace”, one of Etsy’s selling points is only handmade items can be placed for sale and it has 19.8m active buyers on the site. Note reselling is only allowed in the vintage and craft supplies categories. Also for sellers, Etsy represents a far less expensive selling experience than selling on eBay. It costs 20p to list an item and Etsy will take 3.4pc of the total selling price, not including shipping costs or PayPal fees. If the low fees are and targeted traffic entices you to set up your own store to sell quirky stuff check out this useful article on How To Set Up a Shop on Etsy and Start Selling.


If you are looking to sell your items that you no longer need such as those toys that your child no longer plays with on Ebay make sure you click a good photo of what you are selling. Looks are important as they say! Give a good description of your item and state the condition as accurate as possible to avoid disputes later. To create the perfect listing and manage your sales check out these tips from the horse’s mouth itself.


Gumtree is a great place to post free classified ads specially for your old household items, appliances, vehicles and more. Whether it’s used drums or dogs that you are looking to sell or buy Gumtree lets you do so and there are very few fees involved, unless you want to promote your listing to the top of search results. Warning: Since the user identification process is not very robust on the site a lot of stolen items are sold through this site. So, do a bit more research before you decide to buy that second-hand bike that you absolutely love!


Facebook Marketplace

One of your favorite social media (or are youngsters on Snapchat now?) has a great option to sell your old things. Check out Facebook Marketplace as selling on Facebook is quick, easy – and it won’t cost you a penny. According to MoneySavingExpert Facebook’s Marketplace is a good bet for mainstream goods such as Wiis, settees and spare TVs whereas it’s not so great for rarer or high value items. For more useful tips on selling on Facebook read this useful guide and start selling!


Here’s a list of some of the 3 most trusted and innovative apps in the market. Check them out and see which one works best for you. You can even go on trials with more than one, to see which one pays-off better.

Shpock. Rather new on the market, this app is very user-friendly and works really well. It is a free classifieds app that lets you buy and sell stuff with the people who live near you. It makes it very easy to list your products and get them out there within minutes. Sales are usually made in person, so you can get cash and get rid of the item quickly – so you don’t have to give a cut of your earnings to eBay or Paypal. Give it a try here.

Preloved. List and advertise your products on the go. So convenient! It also offers options to give away stuff that might not be suitable for selling. Saves you a trip to landfill when time is scarce. Check it out here.

Vinted is One of the best options for selling and buying clothes and accessories. It’s like an amazing charity shop right on your mobile. Great pro-tip: you can also swap items free of fees! More on Vinted here.

Ready to put your things on the market and (to quote Elsa) “let it go!”? Let us know what other apps you find out there. Which one would you recommend? Also, if you are not a 100% digital person and you’d rather browse around “in person” from time to time, check out some info on charity shops on one of our past blogs: Top 5 unusual (and affordable or free) things to do in London.
