What Products Can I Sell to Make Money?

Record-high inflation worldwide means everyone is getting more creative about trimming their budget and stretching their dollar. One favorite way anyone can make quick cash is by selling old and unused things lying around the garage or attic.

However, selling online can be challenging for beginners. Luckily, Sella will sell items for you for a small fee. If personal shoppers are a thing of the past, personal sellers are tomorrow’s future.

Read on to discover what you can sell to make some easy cash in time for the holidays this season.

What Products Can I Sell to Make Money?

People who are new to the idea of reselling may wonder what exactly they can sell and how. This is where Sella’s experienced sellers can help. Especially for those who may not be familiar with navigating complex online marketplaces like eBay and Craigslist, which can be overwhelming.

While there is a market for everything, you will be better off prioritizing your selling list with items that are timeless and popular. If you are not sure what to sell, keep reading to find some ideas.

Sella can sell just about anything that is easy to handle. It needs to fit in a car and be something that makes sense to sell. The general idea is to sell items worth at least $40. The top-selling categories with year-round demand include:

  • Electronics
  • Small appliances
  • Collectibles and antiques
  • Sports and hobby equipment
  • Designer apparel and accessories

In the meantime, here are more suggestions to get you started.

Smart Electronics

Electronics like smartphones, laptops, and tablets are always in-demand. If your children need to upgrade their iPads for the new school year, sell their old ones to put toward the new device. Same with your teenagers who want a new computer as they head to college. This includes older iPhone, AirPods, Apple watches, Bose headphones—so they can snag the latest version available.

Home Appliances

Small appliances commonly found around the home like coffee makers, toasters, and blenders also make hot commodities in the online resale market. If you bought a new Keurig or Nespresso machine during Black Friday, what are you doing with the old one? You can resell it.

Sports Equipment

People with lacrosse players or hockey players in the family will know that sports equipment and gear can get expensive, especially adding up over the years. One way to pad your budget for new equipment would be to resell old ones that are gently used and still in good condition.

Expensive Hobbies

There are times we pick up new hobbies only to lose interest quickly. If your daughter’s hobby in high school was photography but she left it behind when she moved away to college, think about selling the fancy camera and equipment. Or perhaps your husband bought a golf set years ago but doesn’t go to the golf course enough to justify its purchase. These would net a tidy sum in resales while freeing up valuable closet space.

Recreational Activities

Think about key recreational activities that are popular during upcoming seasons: hiking or biking in the spring, surfing in the summer, and ice skates in winter. If you have a surfboard or snowboard lying around not getting much use, you can sell it at their respective peak times. If your family moved somewhere warm and no longer hit the slopes, you could sell the skiing and snowboarding gear you’re not using anymore.

Clean Your House

Knowing Sella will take care of selling your items, you can focus your time deciding on the products you want to sell. When you have a free weekend, take some time to go through each room in your house from the attic to the basement. Going through each room with a seller’s eye will help get those ideas flowing. Keep an eye out for pricier items like designer apparel. More often than not, you will find plenty of items you can part with.

Sella is ideal for selling fragile items like antiques and collectibles, stereo equipment, or clunky items like home improvement tools because they take care of the packing and shipping for you.

Final Tips

Once you have the items you want to sell, prepare them for Sella. Wash clothes, wipe shoes, and clean anything you want to sell. No one wants to receive a dirty item that looks used. Present your item in its best condition possible, so it will be attractive and appealing to potential buyers.

Don’t miss out on this chance to turn your clutter into cash. And with Sella, you can do it hassle-free. For a limited time through the end of the year, Sella is waiving its 10% success fee. Get started today.
