With Diwali just around the corner, most of us are busy decluttering our homes. So why not work smart and make some money from those unwanted items???
A lot of us buy things we don’t use and keep on hoarding them unnecessarily. Then there are times when we want to discard our old and worn out items and make place for the new but don’t know how to go about it…Well, the best way is to keep it simple and hassle-free and sell it online.
Here’s our guide you how you can grab the best deal when selling your pre-loved items online:
Choose the site where you want to list
There are a number of sites where you can sell your stuff online. If you have to sell something specific then listing on the sites that sells those specific products might do a brilliant job in getting it sold quickly. Now there are sites where your friends can recommend your products for sale to their connections through social networks. Therefore choosing a good site is equally important to ensure that the product really sells… and sells at a good price. The trust factor when you are selling through your own network can certainly make things far smoother.
Clear pictures, better description & realistic pricing works
The first rule here is to add a clear picture of the product, clicking it from various angles, so the buyer knows exactly what they are settling for rather than feeling cheated later. Also, don’t forget to be as precise as possible in describing the product, mentioning the necessary specifications that are critical from a buyer’s perspective. This will increase the chances of the product getting sold quickly. Above all, a realistic pricing is important to ensure that people take interest in your product. Ideally you should find the market price and depending on how long it has been used, account for depreciation and then decide the selling price. You could also see the prices for similar products on different portals for reference.
Some safety tips you shouldn’t ignore
Hurray, you managed to get a buyer for your product for sale and you are extremely happy about the cash you would be getting, but in this excitement don’t forget to follow some safety measures. First of all, fix a meeting with the buyer for handing over the product at a public place and not at an isolated or unknown location. If the product needs to be picked up from your place, make sure you are not alone at home. Ensure someone is accompanying you all through the meeting. After all, the buyer is a stranger and it is better to be safe than sorry.
Don’t forget to check the warranty on the pre-loved item
If you selling any item that you haven’t used for long and it’s still under warranty, especially gadgets and electronics, don’t forget to include this point in your sale description. It will add brownie points to your deal.
So don’t junk that clutter this Diwali. Go online and put a price to it….After all, what is junk to you may seem useful to someone else and can prove to be a win-win situation for both of you!
