Marketplace Apps for Selling Your Stuff

It may not be a full-time business, but selling your gently used clothes, books, furniture and other items is a great way to make extra cash and minimize clutter. Peer-to-peer marketplace sites such as eBay and Craigslist are the go-to digital destinations for selling unwanted items, but they’re far from the only options. New apps, like the recently announced Facebook Marketplace, are popping up all the time, widening your potential base of buyers. If you’re looking to empty your closets (and fill your wallet), here are 10 great apps to help you sell your stuff. 1. Saily The idea behind Saily is that it shouldn’t be hard to find cool stuff for ridiculously cheap prices. You can sign up with your Facebook account or by email to start buying and selling. This app is fairly new, so the company is not yet accepting large items such as televisions and furniture. However, you can buy and sell clothes, jewelry, sports memorabilia and other similar items. The app lets you take a picture of what you want to sell, add a description and price, and list it for sale. Saily on iTunes

2. 5miles 5miles is a free app that focuses on local selling. Whether you want to sell your car or rent out a room in your house, you can list it for free here. The app asks to access your location to allow for easy posting and to make sure you are selling within a certain distance for easy delivery or pickup of your sold items. The inter-app messaging system keeps your personal information safe, and buyers and sellers are rated to avoid scams. 5miles on iTunes / Google Play 3. Listia Listia is another local buying and selling app where you gain credits and badges for hitting certain milestones. For instance, if you sign up through Facebook, you get 4,000 credits to use on the app. The app features daily offers, such as trading in your cellphone for a certain number of credits. You can then use those credits to buy other things on the app. DVDs, clothes and toys, among many other items, can be listed on Listia, and you also get credits when your items are purchased.

Posting is free, and there are no listing fees, so all the money you make from selling items is yours to keep. What is different about this app is, once you make a sale, Zupa! sends you a shipping label. All you have to do is print it out and put it in the mail. Zupa! on iTunes
