Local Buy And Sell Websites


Buying from Amazon is easy, but if you need a large item that can't be easily shipped or have something to sell, there are better options available. Websites and apps like eBay, Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, OfferUp, and VarageSale are great options for buying and selling locally.

If you're selling a large item that you don't want to ship, you need to set up a few options in your eBay listing. In the field for Additional checkout instructions, click the More link. You can now choose to accept PayPal and/or receive payment upon pickup. Under Shipping details, click the drop-down list for Shipping and select No shipping: Local pickup only.


To protect yourself against the bad guys, never accept payment by check, money order, or even PayPal. Always insist on cash only and local pickup only. Assuming you can transport the item in your car, you may want to meet the buyer in a public place rather than having them come to your home. For more tips, you can check out Craigslist's own advice on how to avoid scams(Opens in a new window).


Facebook users can buy or sell items on the social network through Marketplace(Opens in a new window), where you can shop by category, price, and location; or find items by name or keyword and opt to be notified if an item becomes available. If you find something that interests you, click it to see more information. You can message the seller directly through Facebook Messenger to if you have any questions. Items can also be saved or shared on Facebook.


If you have an item to sell, open Marketplace and click Create new listing (desktop) or Sell (mobile). Select the type of item you're selling. Fill out the item details, including category, name, price, location, description, and photos. Then post and wait for potential buyers to contact you.


To check out the items for sale, browse the listings in your community or type a specific item in the search field. If you find an item that interests you, contact the seller with any questions. From there, you can work out the details and agree on a place to meet to pick up the item.

Shopify is the easiest and most reputable way to create your own store.

How has Amazon become the best online selling site? People have come to trust Amazon and the things they buy on its marketplace. Amazon is known to vet sellers and remove fake products. It also delivers items in as little as one day (in some areas) through Amazon Prime. And it has great prices and deals that people love, which is why they continue to do their online shopping there.


Think of Bonanza as the middle ground between the best online selling sites Amazon and eBay. There are more unique and handmade items for sale on Bonanza than on eBay, but fewer branded names than on Amazon. For example, you can sell the latest Nike Air Max model or a handmade one-of-a-kind copper necklace and find active buyers for each. Buyers can add products to their cart for a set price or negotiate an offer with you through the platform.


Bonanza charges you nothing to list your products on its site. It only takes a small percentage of your final sale price after you sell. And since many Bonanza sellers also have their own online stores, you can integrate Bonanza with platforms like Shopify to manage and sell products more easily.


Etsy is one of the best selling sites for handcrafted and vintage items. In 2015, it began including maker-developed manufactured goods, but only for select accounts on the marketplace. As of Q2 2021, there were over 96 million buyers on Etsy, making it a lucrative way to start selling online.

Some of the items you can't sell on eBay include explicit adult products, alcohol (except wine if you're an approved seller), pets, and most live animals, as well as anything that would be considered illegal.
