Well, if you’re going to get rid of that clutter, you might as well make some money while you’re at it. Try these sites to sell your stuff.


You likely buy many things from Amazon, so why not sell some things on there, too? Amazon makes the selling process easy, even providing an estimate for how much you’ll get for each item. Amazon charges depend on how/what you sell. As US News reports, if you sell things directly to buyers, Amazon charges a 99 cent fee and a “referral fee,” which is a percentage of each sale. Referral fees can range from 6 percent for computers to a whopping 45 percent for Amazon device accessories.

Gazelle pays shipping fees and even wipes the phone for you so none of your info can be stolen.
