Today, more and more people are looking to adopt a more minimalist lifestyle. And to sort their interior and get rid of many objects, often unused, accumulated in the cupboards for several years.
More sensitive to the economic and environmental impacts of our consumption choices, our lifestyle is changing. Getting rid of the superfluous and keeping only the essentials is becoming the trend, as the success of Marie Kondo shows .
And in the digital age, many of us don’t want to bother participating in yard sales or secondhand sales to sell our unused stuff.
And that’s good news: there are many options today for selling your business online with just a few clicks.
If you want to declutter your home or apartment while making money fast , the following 8 apps are here to help. You will be able to sell everything you no longer use at the best price, and give yourself some well-deserved pocket money.
If, like many people, you have shelves and cupboards full of old CDs, DVDs, books or video games that you haven’t used for years, Momox is for you.
This website allows you to buy and sell all your used business online at the best price. Registration is of course free, and you can add all your items for sale simply by scanning their barcode.
Another considerable advantage: the shipment is free.
The objective of Vestiaire Collective is simple: to allow you to find a solution to overflowing wardrobes while earning a little pocket money.
Unlike other sites or applications (such as Vinted or Vide Dressing) , Vestiaire Collective is above all dedicated to the sale and resale of luxury pieces or branded clothing, which you can sell at much more fair and attractive prices.
This community platform is ideal if you want to sell (or buy) little worn items, or gifts that may not be to your liking …
The majority of us log into Facebook every day. But did you know that the social network also offers a Marketplace ?
This platform allows you to discover and especially sell articles to people in your community easily and simply. And with more than 33 million users in France, the opportunity is quite interesting.
Individuals can post free ads there, which people around you can see. You can then choose a shipment or a hand delivery according to your preferences.
The good corner
Of course, Leboncoin is a classic (it is also the leading classifieds site in France). But despite everything, we often tend to forget that we can sell almost anything on this platform, and not just furniture! Decoration, linens, clothes, wine, gardening tools … almost everything goes there.
Given a large number of ads, the competition is of course quite large. But nothing prevents you from maximizing your chances by posting your item for sale on multiple platforms, including Leboncoin.
Like Vestiaire Collective , Vinted is a community platform that allows you to sell and buy (or even swap) men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, as well as second-hand accessories online.
With a very practical mobile application, it is your ideal partner if you want to sort out the clothes you no longer wear. And by taking a little time to heal your ads, you can save a lot. I personally sold for more than 200 euros in a few months thanks to the application, which I, therefore, recommend without hesitation!
Coming from the international market and starting to prove itself in France, Shook claims to be a sort of ” mobile flea market ” where you can sell your unused items to buyers near you.
If you have pieces and objects with an authentic and vintage spirit, or just want to find buyers nearby, Shook is here to help.
Ebay still retains a slightly more ” old school ” image than Leboncoin. Yet thousands of items are sold there every day, and it remains a platform full of opportunity when you are looking to clear your closets quickly.
One of the downsides of Ebay is that the site charges a small commission which is a% of your sales. But it still applies if you have difficulty selling on other platforms. Better to leave them a small commission than not to sell at all!
Easy to use and modern in design, the Letgo platform allows you to sell all the things you don’t use in dozens of categories: electronics, bicycles and other vehicles, sports equipment, leisure, games, clothing … and even services!
Growing rapidly in France, this application allows you to give new life to your second-hand items at the best price.
GEEV is not strictly speaking a sales application, but I still wanted to mention it here.
Because if you can’t sell your items on these different platforms, rather than keeping things in your closet that you no longer use, why not give them away?
GEEV allows you to list all the objects so you want to get rid of them for the benefit of people close to you. And you could find some free little treasures yourself!
