Websites like and are extremely easy to use web platforms that allow buyers and sellers to connect in one central location to make sales happen. All you need to do is create a free account with a username and you can join the website. As a buyer, you’re able to search for products you want by name or category. As a seller, you are able to create listings for different products you would like to sell and upload pictures and descriptions of your products to try to entice potential buyers to make a purchase.


If you have a bunch of items laying around the house you no longer need or use, and they are in relatively good condition, try your hand at selling them online. Once you create your listings for your products, there is no other work to be done to sell your items. People will find your products and if the price is right they will purchase. If you are finding that your products aren’t selling like you thought they would, it may be a good idea to lower your prices a little bit to see if that entices people to buy. You can also pay a little bit of money to promote your listing, like an advertisement, to ensure people are actually seeing it.


If you don’t have any items laying around that you want to sell, don’t worry. A great way to get items to sell is to find really cheap deals on other platforms like Facebook marketplace, or even go to a flea market or a yard sale yourself. If you live in an apartment building, perhaps people moving out have nice items that they are getting rid of for free because they don’t want to take it with them. Continue to collect or buy items as you find them and try to sell them for a profit on the other online platforms that you are on. If you have enough time on your hand, this can really be a great way to earn money, and could even be a fun and rewarding experience for you as well.
