  1. I’ve had a lot of luck selling things on the Facebook marketplace/sales groups. Although, in those instances, I’m selling things I’m “flipping” and not necessarily electronics.

    I used Decluttr once for an old cell phone, but they offered me less when they received it saying it wasn’t in as good of condition as I claimed.

    Half Price Books is another place that’ll buy used electronics in addition to the books and magazines they’ll buy everyday.

    • I’ve sold some stuff on Facebook too, but it was just stuff from around my house, some electronics, and some other items.

  2. I tried gazelle, but once I’d sent them my device, they tried to lowball me, claiming that my device had less storage space than I’d reported. I declined their new offer and had the device returned. I double checked when it came back, and sure enough it had the storage space I’d initially reported.

    So, YMMV.

    • I’m sorry you had a bad experience but glad you were able to get your device returned.

  3. Please do not use Buy Back World. They store your password in plain text. When I asked for assistance with my account, they sent me my exposed password in an email. Since they deal with addresses, bank account numbers, credit card numbers, etc. and store your password in plain text, not only are they not protecting that sensitive information, but who knows if they’re even storing that properly.

    • Thanks for the information! I’m sorry to hear you had a bad experience.

  4. Not mentioned on any of possible buy sites, was that of audio gear, i.e. amplifiers, turntables, tuners, etc. like that.
    Do any of your listed buyers take in such stuff, or do you know if there are any at all who do?

    • Hi there, I am also looking for sites which take vintage equipment. Such as record players and amps from the 1980s, and in the UK. Not sure if I could afford to send to the US! If anyone knows please let me know. Thank you.
