I have a lot of stuff I could be selling right now and I have tried listing them on multiple sites.
First I tried selling on StoreEnvy. I really liked the idea of them because the site doesn't take a fee out of what you make (unlike Ebay and Amazon). But in the years that I have had a shop with them I've only had TWO sales.
Then I recently started posting some items on OfferUp. It's a phone app where you list stuff to sell to people in your area. I made 1 sale fairly quickly, but I have multiple movies, books, clothes and other items posted on there and nothing else seems to be getting attention. I think my prices are quite fair and on some of the items I think going lower would really just be losing me money.
I haven't yet listed things to sell on Craigslist. Honestly the idea scares me a little bit (the site as such a bad rap) but my brother has had some success selling on there.
Other than the fees that Ebay and Amazon take away, another reason I don't sell with them is because dealing with and trying to figure out the shipping was such a pain! And more often than not I ended up paying more for shipping than I charged. So with the hassle and cost of shipping AND with the fees the sites take away, I kind of avoid them like the plague.
What about you guys? How do you sell your stuff online?
