4 Best Places to Sell Old Gadgets


It’s finally summer, and you’re hoping to go on a memorable vacation. It would be so easy if only you had the budget to do so. You can’t go out of town or embark on a notable shopping spree without money; hence, you decide to do something about it. You have a few pre-used gadgets at home, so you decide to sell them off to other people, only to be faced with another important question: “How and where could I sell them?” Well, look no further than a few of the most common selling spots for old gadgets:

1. Via Social Media

Nowadays, it’s much easier to have your very own buy and sell platform. With just a few clicks, you can interact with a potential buyer, agree upon the conditions of the sale, and then arrange a meet up in order for the sale to really take place. The rise of social media gave Filipinos an opportunity to connect with many local and international buyers, hoping to avail their offered products and services; you may even spot a few apparel pages here and there. This is the perfect place to advertise your used gadgets, owing to the fact that it’s simple and straight to the point. All you have to do is post photos of your item, along with the description of its features, quality and condition, and your contact details, so the buyer may know where to reach you.

2. Via a Garage Sale

If you have more than one type of item to sell off, then why not organize a garage sale? Gadgets do not always come in compact form; some are bulky and way too heavy to be delivered (the old models of laptops and tablets, for example). Not only would you be able to showcase your items in the flesh, but also have an easier time selling them off, knowing that it’s your trusty neighbors that you’re dealing with.

3. Via Online Buy and Sell

We have mentioned social media before, but that is actually a much generalized platform when it comes to selling your items. If you really want to be specific about your purpose of selling, then perhaps a few specialized “buy and sell” websites is what you’re really looking for. eBay Philippines and OLX are a few major examples, and more can be found if you Google away. They are also user-friendly, only requiring you to register with a valid e-mail address, and filled with functionalities such as multiple photo uploads and item description boxes.

4. Via a Pawnshop

This may very well be one of the most usual and simplest solutions when opting to sell an item. However, it has one major advantage; you can still get your item back if ever you’d change your mind in the future. Most pawnshops provide the best prices when it comes to a mint-condition item, hence, a gadget that has been well-taken care of definitely has no problem garnering a fair amount when pawned off.

With all of that being said, you may be looking for a pawn shop that will provide you with the most honest return possible. No worries, as Cebuana Lhuillier has got your back. With their Pawning Service you can never go short in any amount, as they accept an array of items, from jewelry to gadgets, as collaterals. They also lead the pawning industry by offering safety and the highest appraisal rate in the industry in its more than 2,200 branches nationwide.
