Who hasn't looked around the garage, taken stock of what they have and thought about how to earn extra money by getting rid of what they don't use?
The question remains not so much if you're going to sell or even when but rather how. How do you know what online site has the most bang for the proverbial buck? Should you leave it to Craig's List and minus the fees or go with something like eBay, perhaps more reputable than most but chocked full of ways to make you pay?
The truth is some sites work really well and others not so much.
eBay easily is in the discussion as one of the more reputable ones, but don't discount the selling power of Amazon, either. Amazon is a powerhouse, tour de force and one of the more attractive sites to sell your items. The key to selling is the credibility of the site you're on (something that Craig's List struggles with, at no fault of its own).
Craig's List has the reputation for forcing you to deal with people that waffle on buying decisions or simply no show altogether after you've potentially driven miles to a meeting point. Craig's List also is well documented as a site that is filled with scams, something you won't find too frequently if at all on Amazon or eBay.
