Best Selling Apps to Sell Stuff Online

1. Facebook App (quick sell app)

Facebook is another one of the best apps to sell stuff online quickly. From your Facebook homepage, click on Marketplace in the top left menu. From there, you can choose “+ Sell Something,” then choose your category — item, vehicle, or place for rent — to create your listing.

Facebook Buy and Sell Groups

Another way to sell items on Facebook is through local buy and sell groups. From your news feed, choose “Buy and Sell Groups” under Explore on the left menu. (You may need to click “See More” to expand the menu.)

From here, you can explore buy and sell groups in your area. You’ll need to join the group before you can start selling. Some groups are for listing individual items and may even have themes (e.g. baby clothes and toys). Others are for advertising yard sales. Be sure to read the guidelines before making your listings.

If you’re looking for a quick sell app then Facebook is a great option since it’s such an active online community already.

2. Instagram

You wouldn’t typically think of Instagram as a place to sell stuff online. However, it can be just that. All you need to do is take a picture and insert some appropriate hashtags.

Another tip: make the sale obvious in the picture with a caption or text overlay. And don’t forget to include the details in the description!

3. Recycler

Recycler is a marketplace that connects local buyers and sellers. The main categories include vehicles, pets, and housing. However, there are also options to list furniture, clothes, and other used household items.

Selling with Recycler is easy. You can create an account using your Facebook login and immediately start posting your items for sale.

4. 5miles

The mission of the 5miles team is to create an online marketplace that’s simple, safe, and fun to use. With this online selling app, you can filter your results to within five miles of your current location.

Categories include the same types of items as other apps (clothes, electronics, furniture, etc.) as well as options to list jobs and services. Although 5miles is used widely throughout the U.S. and various other countries, you’re more likely to see success with this one if you’re in or near one of their more popular cities, like Dallas, Tampa, Miami, or New York.

5. Trove Marketplace

The Trove app is a great source to buy and sell used furniture online. When you list an item on Trove, you can set a fixed price or accept bids from potential buyers. You also get to decide who you want to accept payment (cash or credit/debit).

Once you accept an offer and confirm price and payment, it’s time to meet your buyer and make the exchange. Don’t let the buyer leave with your item until you’ve been notified by Trove that they’ve completed their end of the transaction by submitting the payment.

6. Chairish

As you may have discerned from its name, Chairish is another app designed specifically for selling used furniture online. Similar to Trove, just snap a picture of your furniture, create your listing with a title and description, and set your price.

Listing with Chairish is free. However, there is a 20% commission charge for items you sell. Whenever your item sells, the buyer has 48 hours to return it through Chairish. After the 48-hour window expires, your payment is released.

One differentiator between Chairish and Trove is that the items on Chairish have a much higher selling price. Therefore, if you have quality furniture in good condition, it may be worth it despite the higher commission rate.

7. Fiverr

According to Fiverr a gig is purchased on their site every five seconds. Some of the more common categories in the Fiverr marketplace are digital marketing, graphic design, writing, video editing, and fun and lifestyle. There are over 100 different categories to choose from, but Fiverr encourages sellers to “be creative.” As long as it’s legal (and within their terms), you can sell it.

Unlike other freelance sites, you get to choose the exact service you offer and set the price — no bidding on projects you may or may not get. You can price your services anywhere from $5 to $995 and upsell customers with three packages at increasing price levels.

8. Rover

The Rover app is designed specifically to connect pet owners with reliable and trustworthy caretakers. Rover’s fees are straightforward — you take home 80% of your pay, period. Services include dog boarding, house sitting, doggie daycare, walking, and drop-in visits. Don’t worry, you don’t have to offer them all.

With Rover, you get to choose which services you offer and set your own rates. If you love animals almost as much as you love getting paid, then this could be the perfect selling app for you.

9. Upwork

Upwork is a global platform that connects businesses with top-level freelancers around the world. That makes it the perfect place to find new clients and grow your freelance business. Or, if you’re not looking to build a business out of it, it’s also just an easy way to make money online.

The most popular categories for freelancers on Upwork are web and mobile developers, graphic designers, writers, virtual assistants, sales and marketing experts, and consultants.

After you create an account and complete your profile, Upwork gives you suggestions for ideal jobs based on the information you submitted. You can also search projects manually to find additional opportunities. Some projects are an hourly rate while others are fixed0price.

When you find a project that fits your skill set, the next step is to submit a proposal. The buyer then chooses from among all the freelancers who bid on the project. Payments are available through PayPal, direct deposit, wire transfer, local funds transfer, Payoneer, or Skrill.
