Is your house full of old toys that your kids no longer use? Though these space-consuming toys seem like junk to you, they can actually earn you a few extra bucks.
Follow these easy steps on how to you can resell toys online:
Sort it out
Gather all the items you want to sell. Scrub away dust and dirt thoroughly. Separate those that still have good quality from toys that are damaged. Choose the toys that you think are still marketable.
Do a toy photo shoot
Customers always need a visual representation of products when they go online shopping. So bring out that smartphone or digital camera and get ready to do that trendy flat lay photography for the toys you wish to sell.
Create a toy inventory
Using a spreadsheet, list down information about your items — description, original price, accessories or parts, and current condition.
Come up with a reasonable pricing
Determine how much you are willing to sell these old toys. Compare it with its original price as well its current price in the market. Remember that you are selling a second hand item so make sure that your price is worth paying for given the toy’s current condition.
Choose the online selling platform
Nowadays, you don’t need a brick-and-mortar shop just to sell old useful stuff. Simply log in to Facebook and check for groups of interest. Upload photos of your toys in an album and get instant potential customers. Another online marketplace platform you can try is Amazon. The Fulfilled by Amazon program allows you to ship items for sale to Amazon. They will then take care of packing and shipping. There are costs involved but this can mean less work for you.
Selling toys online will not only de-clutter your house but will also help you recoup some of their costs.
