    I like to sell on Amazon marketplace. There are no fees unless you sell, there is a large group of consumers and if you sell enough and want to pay, Amazon will ship your orders for you.

    I always turn to Craigslist when I need to sell something. Not only is it FREE, but a lot of people use it to find deals. I’ve also had great success giving away things I would otherwise throw away – like an old box spring I had lying around. The dump wanted to charge me money to toss it, but I was able to give it to someone that needed it, for free! It’s a win-win for everyone!
