Every season, I clean out my closest. I donate some items to charity and others I sell online. I’m always surprised on how much I’m holding onto for absolutely no reason. Case in point? The first camera I bought as a blogger. I think every fashion blogger started out with a Canon Rebel. I’ve since upgraded and with all my upcoming travel, I want to buy a new lens. So I decided to list my first camera on eBay so I can put the money towards taking even better photos for my blog.
eBay makes is so easy to sell online. They guide you through three simple steps on how to 1. List and Sell It, 2. Ship It and 3. Get Paid. When you first list an item, they even have recommendations of similar items so you can have a portion of your listing already filled out. I also like that they recommend pricing based on comparable items up for auction.
It literally took me ten minutes to take photos of my camera and put it up for sale online. I have some family members battling cancer right now so I took part of the charity option where you can donate a percentage to a cause. 10% of my earnings goes to the American Cancer Society. Three hours later it sold with the Buy Now feature. eBay even made shipping easy with a pre-filled out label I was able to print out and tape to my box.
Another bonus? They have a fun game going on right now where you can win gift cards. It takes under a minute to play the game and you’re automatically entered to win up to $50 gift cards!
Good luck and happy spring cleaning!
