Have something to sell? Well luckily for you there has never been a better time to relocate your old items and turn them into well-deserved cash. Garage and Jumble sales will never lose their charm and are a great way to spend an afternoon. However, if you’re looking for a speedy selling process, or a niche market you’d like to directly advertise your item to, using mobile apps could be the way forward.
Thankfully, there are some excellent apps, free of charge, that can help you do this. Some are universal, some are specifically targeted, and some are well known. But they all have their uses.
So without further ado, here are the 5 best apps you can use to get selling today.
Shpock is an excellent selling app that has a great web client alongside being on both App & Play mobile stores. It allows you to sell anything, free of charge. However, if you’d like to advertise your items to a larger audience or have it higher up in the search results of those that directly search for an item like yours, there are paid ‘VIP’ and ‘HOT’ options available. Shpock is mostly catered for collections, so you’ll have to arrange deliveries prices and payments outside of the app if you’re happy to post your item. However, this can be risky, so if a collection is not an option, be careful who you sell to.
Yes, Ebay is still the king of online auction houses. Whether you have gaming computers, cars, or trick scooters for sale, eBay can take care of all of those needs. Thankfully, their app development team have done a stellar job. The app is smooth, responsive and is virtually the same as using the web counterpart, even when listing complex items for sale. However, there has always been a cost for this premium service, and both Paypal and Ebay will ask a fee for using both of those services. It is the most secure of all the services on this list though, and Ebay’s support is consistently good, so it is worth the price of admission.
Depop is a mobile app that has gained immense popularity over the past few years, especially in the younger generations. Depop is catered specifically to selling second-hand clothes, but there are some amazing things to be found there. Even depop stores have been cropping up regularly since its release, with some of these sporting thousands of five-star reviews. If you’re looking for a speciality vintage item, Depop is arguably a better place to look than Ebay right now. Depop is not only limited to clothes however, as you can also list electrical and toy items. One downside to Depop is that it can take a while to get access to your funds after a successful sale, but they are countering this with soon-to-be-unveiled Paypal integration.
