With a trend of Online shopping, selling and buying used things is also rising. Finding the potential buyer for an used item in household has now become easier thanks to Online classified ads site. Also, if you are looking for budget product in used condition then second hand online market is good place.
Here is a list of some websites which allow selling used products online and offer buying second hand things there itself. In other words, they help meeting buyer and seller.
Ebay doesn’t need any introduction as an online marketplace. Treasure is a part of eBay dedicated to selling used items and second hand things online. Here, Treasure is referred to any thing unused at your home which could bring some cash on selling.
You can create a shop inside eBay to list all your items or sell item as non shop subscriber.
Minimal insertion fee is charged while listing any item depending upon the category of product. For new sellers, first 20 listings are free. However, if product is sold successfully, there is a success fee called as final value has to be paid to eBay.
Payments can be accepted by PaisaPay (Fraud Protection), Bank Transfer or Cheque. Transaction has to be made via eBay itself while Shipping responsibility is completely on Seller.
Almost anything can be found in any category from A-Z. You must go through Pictures posted and verify genuineness of the product. Seller Rating is another feature which adds to trust factor and help from Fraud protection.[button-brown url=”http://pages.ebay.in/treasure_hunt/” target=”_blank” position=”left”] visit – ebay.in [/button-brown] [clear]
2. Second Hand Mall
It is a classified Ads website helping to find potential customers in your city. Not just buying and Selling but it also supports Donating and exchanging things. Stay true to its tagline- Where Things change Hands.
- Website design and Navigation is really easy.
- Posting of Ad is Free. No bugging to upgrade.
- Buyer can contact without revealing your email ID.
- Help out Seller in Courier and provides Loan, Insurance assistance. I always recommend One Sure Insurance which is from onesureinsurance
For Buyers, it has a nice feature called “Product Verification” by which product is verified by their team for authenticity. Also, the listing is moderated I guess because random items I looked for had enough description and real picture of items.[button-brown url=”http://www.secondhandmall.com” target=”_blank” position=”left”] visit – Second Hand Mall [/button-brown] [clear]
It is quite active classified ads site with maximum number of sellers and buyers from India. Maybe the TV commercials is the reason of its popularity but experience says, its quite good in their business.
For Buyer- Variety of product range is available from Pets to Vehicles and the number of products listed is also high. One thing lacks here is- Owing to high number of product listing, crawling through the search results and finding the product we want becomes difficult. Lack of moderation makes everything look spammy.
For Seller- Posting ad is free and also support anonymous posting. If you want your product to be listed at first place and on featured section on Homepage then Rs. 250 is charged.[button-brown url=”http://www.olx.in” target=”_blank” position=”left”] visit – OLX [/button-brown] [clear]
Books, Pets and Mobile Phones are popular products sold on such sites as per my view.[alert-success] If You are looking for Books then, get it from Cheapest Online Bookstore in India [/alert-success]
4. Juna Bazaar
Juna means old in Marathi language while Bazaar refers to Market. Looks like a newly established site and even the design of site is broken but the categories mentioned have products listed from all over India.
For Sellers, posting of ad is completely free and and various upgrade options are available which helps you attract buyers.
For Buyers, Site does not take any responsibility except offering communication with seller.[button-brown url=”http://www.junabazaar.com” target=”_blank” position=”left”] visit – Juna Bazaar [/button-brown] [clear]
Another classified ads site highly promoted on televisions. Owing to the popularity, it has a vast product range and alternatives of same products for Buyer.
Seller can post ad for free while upgrade plans for premium ads varies according to the product sold.
One thing must be noted that Shipping has to be done by seller and no site takes responsibility of that.[button-brown url=”http://quikr.in” target=”_blank” position=”left”] visit – Quikr [/button-brown] [clear] [alert-warning] Buyer should try to buy things from a seller from their city itself as far as possible to avoid scam. And Payment should be made in hand on receiving the product. [/alert-warning]
One problem common with all of these sites except eBay is Spam. They should allowing anonymous posting and make Mobile and Email verification mandatory. Also, posting of picture with a minimum amount of words in description should be a requirement for publishing product listing.
I personally have experience with Quikr, OLX and eBay while other two have been posted as per my view on their site and online reviews. If you have experienced selling or buying or became victim of any classified ads fraud, then let us know by commenting.
