So, you have a bunch of stuff ready to sell but can’t sell them to anyone? Let’s say that the stuff you want to sell is legit and ready to use, and not broken or damaged, what’s the easiest way to sell that stuff? In our opinion, your best bet is to seek help online, whether it’s using your PC or smartphone. Today, our concern will be selling stuff online, using your smartphone and Android operating system.
Top Android Apps to Sell Stuff
If you think that your smartphone is just for music or social media websites, wait ’till you see what it’s really capable of. Let’s check our list of 10 best apps to sell stuff on Android.
First place goes to Amazon Seller. First, it’s one of the most reliable apps on this list, second, it’s simple and reliable. If you decide to install this app, you’ll be required to create an account from which you can sell your stuff. You can upload many pictures of your stuff to make sure that buyers are confident enough to contact you. In case you have interested buyers contacting you in an inbox, you can open it and quickly respond, which is great for accelerating the process of selling. Amazon Seller is a great app for selling not just a few things, but anything you want. It’s a serious app made for serious sellers.
eBay is second to none when it comes to selling stuff online and is widely used by many users and even companies. What we like about eBay is that there are numerous ways you can sell or buy stuff here. You can buy it immediately using the option “Buy it Now” or set up an auction, the same goes for selling stuff, and it’s great to sometimes set an auction if you’re not sure how much your stuff is worth. The app is great because it offers all of the options you have on PC, making it efficient in selling stuff.
Facebook, really? Facebook might be one of the best ways to sell your stuff, by creating groups or posting in various groups tied to this matter. You can simply post few photos of your stuff and write some info and price or do all of this in the particular group. Possibilities are endless if you are using Facebook. And yeah… it’s free, of course.
Close5 isn’t that polished like eBay or Amazon but still offers a fair amount of options if you want to sell stuff or two. It’s very simple to use and doesn’t even require any description or price tag on your stuff. Just upload a picture, and you’re done. Potential buyers can then contact you and negotiate about buying your stuff, but be careful as there are a lot of scammers in these kinds of apps. Just be sure not to wire your money to anybody, and you’re safe.
If you ever sold stuff online, you probably know about Letgo, and if you don’t know, you should. Letgo is a great and easy app for doing online selling, with a beautiful and user-friendly interface, making it simple for newcomers. It’s a smart app that has an AI built in itself which helps you determine in which category your stuff needs to be categorized. This removes the job of deciding where to put your stuff too. You just write what you are selling, put some pictures and description and let Letgo do all the stuff.
VarageSale is similar to Letgo, as they both share simplicity and reliability. However, VarageSale requires users to sign up using Facebook, in order to avoid anonymity and hopefully reduce scamming, and it does it well. Aside from that, it boasts a classic interface where you can easily post your stuff for selling and arrange sales or browse other people’s stuff and buy if you are interested. Admins are taking care of the app and even service, so scamming is reduced to a minimum here.
This app is an unofficial app for Craiglist and is made by a fan of Craiglist. The main function of this app involves posting your stuff for sale to Craiglist and being able to see what the other sellers are offering. It’s very simple app and has interestingly designed user interface where you can see info about products with a single tap to the screen. You can also communicate with the members of this community and possible buyers, to ensure that your goods are sold correctly.
8. Sell on Etsy
Sell on Etsy is a little different app from the previous apps on this list. Sure, you can buy and sell stuff here, but it’s focused on selling homemade stuff like crafts, art and similar to that. So, if you are an artist or doing a business where you craft things by hand, or you are an artist, this is a good place to start. Other than that, the app can be used to sell things in person and communicate with potential buyers, which is a great addition.
OfferUp is a rewarding app for serious sellers. It can reward you if you are a good seller by earning reputation points, thus being more popular among potential buyers. This is done in order to reduce scamming and works well on this app. Although interface can be clunky sometimes, the community is great here, with lots of users, making it easy to sell your goods on OfferUp.
We’ll conclude the list with 5miles (not smiles). 5miles is a great app for selling stuff by using your zip code and GPS technology to locate people around your vicinity. It has Facebook integration, in order to reduce scammers, built-in messenger and much more. A really quality app that will help you sell your goods fast and it’s free. Currently, it has 4.5 stars on Google Play from around 86000 users, and it doesn’t take much space, so feel free to try it out if you have the stuff to sell.
