sell used electronics in nyc

There are several different ways to sell used electronics in NYC. Here is where we will run through the most common.


Everybody knows that Craigslist is a great resource to off-load unwanted items.

However, it is a hotbed for scams and is unmoderated.

Sellers are at risk when they are paid through PayPal or other payment apps like Venmo. Time and time again people fall into trap of being paid this way only for the buyer to suddenly cancel the payment, leaving you with nothing.

There is also a safety aspect when using Craigslist. Craigslist is open to all which is great for advertising but can put sellers in a risky situation. Keep in mind to always choose the meeting place to be public and, if you can avoid it, never in or near your home.

Bottom Line: Craigslist can sometimes be a risk but it is accessible to everyone.



eBay has been around for years now and is a great place for shoppers but not for sellers. For new sellers on eBay there are some costs to consider. eBay takes a percentage from your sales, which can be high for casual sellers. PayPal, who manages all transactions on eBay, takes another percentage from your sales. Finally, you have the cost of shipping to add as well.

Once the item is sold on eBay the buyer can open a dispute on PayPal up to 180 days from the date of purchase. This means that the item can be returned for a full refund or disputed for any reason up to 6 months from point of purchase. If a buyer claims that the item was damaged, missing or anything else eBay will always side with the buyer.

Bottom Line: eBay is the most trusted online marketplace, which guarantees buyer security. It can be unfair for sellers with fees and eBay buyer-friendly policies.
