Craigslist is an online marketplace catering to locals. Nearly everyone has heard of it. This one is not entirely online.
The way it works? You list your items for sale in your local Craigslist and meet with buyers face to face to exchange goods for money. You can probably arrange shipment instead of face to face meet but the whole point of Craigslist is to see the product face to face to inspect it, see it in person, etc.
You can sell almost anything on Craigslist:
- used clothing
- home decor (like rugs, paintings, etc.)
When you visit the site you will enjoy the clean look. It’s super easy to navigate and there are a hundred different categories you can list your items in.
Craiglist is probably the most different site of all on the list. It’s not a marketplace or auction. There are no fees to list or sell your goods. There is no bidding. It’s straightforward and easy, a refreshing way to sell your stuff online.
eBid is probably one of the most undiscovered marketplaces! They have over 13,000 categories and the most similar to eBay.
It offers auctions and fixed-price listings.
