We understand the situation you are in. You need a few bucks and you have a garage, basement, or closet full of stuff you couldn't afford anymore. The good news is that there are plenty of options when it comes to selling your stuff. You'll have a few extra bucks and empty space before you know it. Here are the 10 best Android apps for selling stuff.

5miles

5miles is one of the most popular apps for sale. It is an online marketplace where you can post your stuff for having it sold. It uses GPS and zip code to show your post to people in your area. Also, it has Facebook integration, built-in buyer-to-buyer messaging, and more. It's pretty easy to use too. This is really good for those who want to sell stuff on Craigslist and also want another place to post it too. Some people have had issues, but most seem to be enjoying the experience quite well.

Amazon Seller

Amazon Seller is for those who want to take this seriously. The application allows you to manage your Amazon Seller account. You will need to create your account on the Amazon website. Otherwise, you can do most things in the app. Included with the app is a photo studio where you can get images of your stuff. Also, you can reply to messages, start special offers and do many other things. It's a bit higher if you only want to sell one or two things. However, it's good to have this in case you want to sell more than that.

Close5


Close5 is very similar to 5miles. This is one of those ZIP and ZIP code based apps to sell stuff. It doesn't offer as polished an experience as other sites, but it's very fast. You can list things very quickly. However, there is no description or price required for publication. This can make things confusing. It has integrated seller-buyer messenger, Facebook integration for quick account creation, and more. It's not widely known and it seems to have a scam issue from time to time. Remember to be careful and never send money to people. You should be fine.

eBay

eBay is the king of apps for selling items. People and businesses have used eBay for years to sell their stuff and it's one of the most trusted names of its kind. It has multiple ways to sell your stuff (auction or Buy Now), various security features, and you can do everything in the app that you can on the site. There really is no limit to what you can sell on eBay. Even lists are generally more informative and useful than smaller sites. It's a pain to set up if you don't have an account for some reason, but otherwise it's fantastic.

Sell ​​on Etsy

Etsy is a great place to sell some of your stuff. It is a website for artists and tinkerers where you can sell handmade art, crafts and various other items. This is not the kind of place where you sell a couch or a TV. However, if you have any paintings or oven mitts you made, this is a good place to go. The app itself works great and you can even use it to sell stuff in person. It also comes with order management, list management, and you can talk to potential buyers. Not a bad place for independent artists.

Facebook

Facebook has also entered the applications to sell products market. Semi-recent updates include a new market feature. You can browse and search there to find properties based on your location. Likewise, you can post your stuff there and hope someone takes an interest. It's like they built the sales section of Craigslist right into Facebook. Since many people use the Facebook app anyway, why not try selling something there too? The only downside is that we don't know how many people actually know about the Marketplace feature on Facebook, so we don't know how many people will see it.

Letgo

Letgo is one of the biggest apps for selling stuff. With over ten million downloads (at least), there's a good-sized audience to sell to. It has a clean interface, simple posting, and lots of additional features. It has a built-in AI that attempts to categorize and name your objects without your input to make things easier. You can even chat with potential buyers and sellers to make things work. It's not perfect, but people seem to enjoy using it. Give it a shot and see if it works for you.

OfferUp

OfferUp is another of the local apps for sale. You can post your stuff relatively quickly or browse around stuff that's already there. Along with the basics, the app also allows people to earn reputation points for being good sellers. This helps weed out spammers and scammers. Otherwise, the application is actually quite simple comparatively. The interface can be a bit cluttered, but it works. It is a good option for those looking for something simple. They also have a lot of users, so there's a good chance your stuff will be seen.

Postings

Postings is the current champ for an unofficial Craigslist app. This one only focuses on showing your products on Craigslist and other items that are for sale. The app was made by a Craigslist fan and has some of the best features for one. The design is fantastic and the ads can be displayed in various ways. Otherwise, it's a simple app for Craigslist. In some cases, it is better to use the mobile site (or the desktop site). Still, it's worth it!

VarageSale

VarageSale is an app that emphasizes a lack of anonymity. Users are required to register through Facebook so that everyone can see everyone. The idea is to help reduce the qualms people have about buying and selling online. Besides that, VarageSale covers the basics very well. You can list your stuff, arrange in-app sales, and browser stuff from other people. Administrators also regulate the service. This should help reduce the number of spammers. It's a pretty decent site overall and one of the best apps to sell.
