Garage sales may have worked in the past, but they’re definitely not as successful as they once were. We live in a digital age where everything is connected to the internet. Instead of trying to make cash by physically setting up shop, create a virtual marketplace! Whether you want to declutter your home or make a few quick bucks, these apps will help clear out your homes.
Sell Your Clothes Online
There are a ton of apps online dedicated to the selling and buying clothing items. Poshmark and Depop are by far two of the most popular platform. Both apps have their pros and cons however, their logistics are basically the same. You take photos of your clothing, post them online with a brief description, and wait for interested buyers to reach out. Once your items have been purchased you mail out your product and as soon as your package reaches its destination you’ll receive payment. Both apps take a small commission of the purchase, but the majority of the revenue will go into your pocket.
Cash4Books is an app dedicated to the buying and selling of textbooks. The app is incredibly easy to use. Just scan the barcode code of books you want to sell, and the app will suggest listing prices. The app even pulls a description of the book from the web taking the trouble out of writing a description of each individual book. The app is mostly populated with textbooks, but can also be used to sell fictional works and children’s books.
No Need to Ship Your Items!
If you don’t want to bother with shipping goods across the country, try 5miles! Like the name suggests, this app will only reach users within a 5-mile radius of you. This not only eliminates the shipping process, but it expedites payment as customers can pick up items the day of purchase. The app even includes voice recording, making it quick and easy to describe your product. You can list practically anything on this site, from furniture to game consoles to real estate listings. Think of it as a miniature Ebay for your surrounding neighborhood.
