RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Yard Sales really haven’t been a great option in the pandemic with social distancing. So how about selling your stuff online?
Facebook marketplace is an option, but you still have to meet someone face to face to complete the transaction.
There are a couple of sites out there where you can mail the merchandise and eliminate the need for close contact.
Mercari, an online marketplace for selling gently used items. It’s as simple as snapping a photo and posting it online.
Poshmark is another way to sell gently used clothing and make a few bucks. Again, you just post a picture online and if someone makes a purchase, you print out a label and ship it off.
The money goes into your account when the person accepts your package.
If you are crafty tryout Etsy. You pay 20 cents to list an item and then a 5% transaction fee on the sale price of the item, not including shipping.
Then there are sites like Gazelle for electronics. This isn’t really a marketplace but a place to resell old equipment. The site gives you a quote on your smartphone, laptop or tablet, and then you send it to them.
All good options if you are looking to make a little extra cash to boost your emergency fund or pay off debt quicker.
