One of our favourite marketplaces to sell our old books, clothes, and furniture is at Used.ca, a Canadian-owned marketplace. It aids Toronto’s mission to go green by promoting the use of second hand items to keep them out of landfills. 

What’s great about Used.ca is that it gets around 33 million monthly visits from users around Canada, so you’ll surely get inquiries about your listing. Also, the site is known for how fast listings come and go, with used books or clothes selling in just a few hours! 

4. Facebook Marketplace

Since its launch, Facebook Marketplace has steadily become one of the best places to buy preloved items around the world. It offers sellers the option to ship locally or overseas – and they don’t charge seller fees! 

Although the app is generally safe for sellers, buyers should be careful as Facebook Marketplace doesn’t offer any protection from scams. Likewise, there’s a convenient messaging system that allows users to directly arrange deals and negotiate prices.

5. Amazon Marketplace

Amazon Marketplace is one of the best places to sell preloved items because the company allows third-party individuals to list used items on the site, reaching a huge audience! 

What really makes Amazon Marketplace stand out is its extensive categories, which can be used to label your item and make it easily searchable. One thing to remember, like most buy-and-sell platforms: Amazon also takes a percentage of your sales.  

6. Locanto

Oodle is the best place for you to sell your stuff if they lean on the weirder side of things, because you’re guaranteed to find a buyer within a week. You’ll usually find people selling things like dogs, antique swords, crystals, and even old pipes.

What really makes Recycler great is that they verify every product before allowing the seller to post it. It’s a great way to ensure the item you’re buying is as described and that there aren’t any hidden issues with it. 

11. VarageSale

A quick and easy way to get rid of your preloved items is by listing them up on VarageSale. This website is basically an online garage sale where users can list items up for sale just as fast as they can sign up on the website. 

The website’s user-friendly interface makes selling old items easy, since the app is easy to navigate and listings only require a photo and a price. Also, listings are location-based, which means people closer to you will see your products for sale.

Another great site for anyone looking to sell clothes that aren’t necessarily designer or luxury items is good ‘ol Depop! The app is pretty straightforward, all you do is list an item, sell it to the highest bidder, and ship the item out the next day.

If you’re in a rush to sell some of your second hand items, then we think you should check out Craigslist. This is one of the top websites for selling just about everything and anything imaginable in Canada.

One reason we recommend selling here is because you can quickly sell items without having to pay for any set-up costs or extra charges. Also, listings remain active for 30 days, so you don’t have to worry about them falling to the bottom of the feed.

17. RealReal

RealReal

Website: RealReal

Things You Can Sell: Cosmetics, Luxury Brands, Luxury Bags

RealReal is one of the best places to sell preloved high-end and luxury items. It’s also quite different from other websites, since you can’t set prices on your own and you need to send an item in for authentication before it gets listed. 

Although their process sounds weird, it’s pretty helpful especially if they price the product you’re selling at a higher value than you expected.  Also, since the site has such a strict authentication process, items usually sell in 30 days for really high prices. 

18. Buyselltrade
