How to Sell Merchandise on Craigslist (My Process)

Sorry, I had to edit out the last part of the video because I accidentally displayed some data I didn’t want to reveal over the interwebs.

Here are some tips:

– PRICE OUT YOUR ITEM
Look on Amazon.com, Ebay.com (Sold listings), and Craigslist, to see what used items are selling for. Remember to consider shipping and handling to figure out the “fair market value” of what it is you’re selling.

– POST GOOD PICTURES
Sometimes, I’ll even grab the pictures from Amazon as my primary image, to make the posting look more enticing

– DESCRIPTION IN YOUR POST
Make sure to have a great description of what you’re selling to make it easier for people to find it. I have a standard template for my contact information and for people to see my other posts. I also often copy and paste from Amazon product descriptions

– CHOOSING A TITLE
I usually put the condition, right in the title.

– ALWAYS HAVE THEM OFFER THE FIRST PRICE
If someone wants to purchase from you, make them offer you the first price. You already offered the starting price with the listing, so now it’s the Buyer’s turn.

– BE PATIENT
If you did the research on pricing your item, you can be confident that you have a fair market value. All it takes is one buyer! Also, certain seasons affect purchasing habits of

– RENEW YOUR POSTING
Renew your posting about twice a week to refresh your listing, and also check your pricing if you’re not getting a lot of hits. It’s possible you may need to adjust your price.
