eBay is one of the most widely recognizable names in the business of buying and selling. This app provides eBay a Classifieds section. The eBay Classifieds app uses auto-location features to find your items closest to you, or you can search by location by entering the appropriate keywords. This app allows Contact and discuss sale with the seller. True to its nature of helping you sell your stuff, you can also post your own sale items locally.

Yerdle is very different from traditional reselling sites like eBay or Craigslist. The company helps you sell items completely free since it did away with the third party who could charge you extra. All you need to do is you list an item for free. When someone is interested with the item you are putting up on sale, they pay only shipping to receive the item. You then receive Yerdle credit that you use when you are buying stuff through the app. The more you sell, the more you earn for free. This is a great way to part with stuff you no longer need and get new ones in return. Consider it an online barter trade.
SocialSell combines classified ads and social networking such as Facebook. This is fitting for those who browse and join many selling sites like those on Facebook. You can follow your favorite sellers, leave comments, and contact sellers privately just like you would on Facebook. SocialSell is selling on social media without the extra social media part you that does not concern you. As always, you can post your own ads for free whether buying or selling; and the more you sell, the more people will follow and probably be interested with what you have.
