It depends on what you are selling. Whenever I tried to sell older ps4 games they never sold that well.


It's a Juicy Couture handbag with wallet and wristlet and a protective bag that comes with it.

It's a light pink bag.

Hm.... I know someone who may want that, I may just buy it for them (dunno, don't take my word for it). Lower your standards, be patient, get a job, or pawn it to a shop.

what exactly are you selling, for how much, and where?

i'm often surprised at the random shit people buy off of craigslist, so i'm wondering what you're selling and what you're asking for it


It's not Craiglist. It's a selling app called Close5. There was also another one called Letgo.


part of the problem is you're using these apps that nobody has ever heard of.

if you really want to get rid of something throw it on craigslist. i can understand the wariness of selling there, so make sure you take steps to protect yourself.

i myself am a big conceal carry advocate, but i'm not really familiar with the legislature where you're at in NJ. from what i understand the whole northeast is extremely unfriendly towards firearms rights. if that's the case where you live, just have a friend or 2 come along with you for any transactions you make.

I just put it up on OfferUp. Now I play the waiting game. I swear I hate waiting.

Alright. I'll try Craiglist and see what happens.

Maybe you could use an application that is used more like Ebay. Ebay is where a lot of people go to buy things so you might get a buyer there.

The thing about Ebay is that I have to ship the item to the person. I don't have money to ship the item.

In an earlier post you said you would go as low as $98. Just add the price of S&H to that and then sell.

To be honest,your selling it on smaller apps.
Ebay would snatch that thing up real quick. Plus on Ebay you can add a shipping cost. So you can include like 5-6 bucks or whatever if they buy it that they give you for shipping.

Best of luck to you!
Selling stuff takes patience even retail stores can sit on things for a long time!

If local hits all seem spammy, you can always sell on Ebay, that's where I list my junk if KSLclassifids don't pay off for me.

That's why I wouldn't sell anything of mine. Sometimes I'll post on Facebook that I wanna sell a bunch of figures and then some friends will buy a few of them and I'm good for a while, but that's the extent. And I have a LOT of friends that are in the figure collecting community including some that work with some companies and some that are retailers, so it's pretty easy to sell things off.

For things that aren't figures I just go with the general 'if I bought it it's either mine or getting donated'. But then, I have a job (it'd be stressful even to think about not having a job honestly) and I buy what I can afford or save up for things I want. So it's just whatever.
