Start with this oldie but goodie.
Everyone has heard of eBay, which was established in 1995. They have had plenty of time to develop a platform and tools that make it very easy to list and sell your stuff using their platform and you can sell just about anything using them.
One frequent eBay seller claims that she earns nearly as much on eBay as she does at her professional office job!
Buyers want your old books.
It’s nice to have books that your family will enjoy, but many of the books collecting dust on your shelf have probably been ignored for years.
BookScouter.com can help you sell textbooks and other reading materials that you’ll likely never pick up again. They claim to offer you, the seller, the highest price.
Their website says their service is free and that no registration is required. Simply enter the ten to thirteen-digit ISBN number and you are well on your way to hearing the jingle of cash in your pocket. They even have a mobile app to give you easier access to the selling process.
