Yard sales are pretty much a thing of the past! Now, if you want to sell something you can do so from the comfort of your couch — and the buyers will even come to you. All you have to do is download any of the following five marketplace apps on your device, and the rest is easy.


eBay is one of the most popular marketplace sites online. It was established in 1995 and has only gotten bigger and better since its conception. What makes it great is its ease of use. As a seller, all you have to do is create a listing, upload an image, and set a price. Once the item is sold, eBay has several options in which to receive the payment.



Craigslist is ideal for selling items in your local area. Perfect if you don’t want to be bothered with shipping items out, especially if the items that you are selling are large. On Craigslist, buyers can search for items based off of location. Just create the listing and be sure to include your contact information. From there you can just wait for the interested buyers to contact you.

Facebook Marketplace

No need to create a profile on a website that you will probably never use again once your item is sold. With Facebook Marketplace, sellers can sell right from the same Facebook website that they already frequent. What makes it even greater is that there is no need to post your number and worry about weirdos calling you. If a person is interested in your item, they can shoot you a message on Facebook messenger. There are multiple convenient features that really sets Facebook Marketplace apart from the rest.


OfferUp is an awesome marketplace platform that has benefits for buyers and sellers. Buyers are able to see seller ratings which alert them to know which sellers are a breeze to work with and which sellers may be more of a hassle. For sellers, the ease of uploading an item is unmatched. A new listing can be created in 30 seconds or less.


Letgo is nothing like their over-the-top commercials. The app is actually very simple and to the point. Simply upload the item photo and start chatting with potential buyers. Letgo does a lot of the work for you by automatically categorizing the item for easier searching. The app looks nice and has automated responses to make it easier to respond to buyers. What more could you ask for!
