Sell Your Electronics
How do I sell electronics on eBay?
Whether you’re looking to sell a TV, computer, gaming console, or other electronics, the first step is to determine the condition of any pre-owned electronics. For example, if you're trying to sell used headphones but the built-in mic no longer works or a used phone with a cracked screen, you’ll need to note the issue in your description. After testing every feature of your electronic device, click the Sell button that appears at the top of most eBay pages. From there, you’ll simply enter your product name in the title bar and follow the on-screen prompts to create your listing. Aside from the condition of your gadget, you’ll also want to list any details, such as model number, weight, and dimensions. Auto-fill options make it even easier to list all of the specifics of your electronic device, and high-quality photos from different angles will help appeal to those looking to buy your item.
What are the best ways to ship electronics after selling them on eBay?
Electronics like headphones, speakers, and cameras are fragile, so make sure to wrap them with bubble wrap. Then, place them in a sturdy box and secure them in place with a dense layer of packing materials. Before sealing the box, make sure that you didn’t leave behind any accessories like AC adapters or extra batteries. If your package includes loose accessories, make sure to wrap them individually. Then, proceed to My eBay and print your shipping label. By connecting your eBay account to Shyp, you can print your own labels, schedule a pickup, and keep track of all of your eBay sales and shipments in one place.
How do I reset/wipe my electronics to sell them?
If your electronic device includes internal memory with your private data, photos, videos, or other media, you’ll need to clear the memory before selling. For a digital camera, smartphone, smartwatch, or tablet, you typically would find this command within your main system settings. For a Windows PC, you would boot up from your installation disc and reinstall Windows. For Mac OS X, you would erase your operating system using your “Disk Utility,” which can be accessed through the “Utilities” folder under “Applications” in your main drive, and then reinstall it.
Is it better to sell my electronics together or in parts?
If you’re selling electronics “as is” because they don’t work properly, it may be worthwhile to sell the components individually. Your customers would consist of people seeking replacement parts, so they may be more interested in finding that part by itself. For electronics that are fully operational, it’s usually preferable to include all available peripherals and accessories, as this can maximize the value of your listing.
Can I sell my used electronics and upgrade to newer models on eBay?
After someone has purchased your item and you’ve been paid, you can shop for new Electronics. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your smartphone or other electronics, shop by category and find it all on eBay.
