Are there any choices other than E-Bay. I have some old crafting and quilting magazines that I would like to get rid of, and I would like the extra money. If you were me, how would you go about selling them, and where? Would you sell individually, or as a lot? Thanks for your input.

I dont know if you can sell them on Etsy or not. I'd check there. I'd also try something like craigslist or kijiji. I think ive seen a site called sellusedmagazinesonline.com but i dont know if it is legit or not. I would sell them as a lot if i was trying to sell them. I've sold them in garage sales for 25 cents each before and bought them from library sales for that.

These are in nice shape, and I may be listing them as vintage. I am looking into Etsy. Did not find the selling site, though.

Thank you for the BR. Selling them vintage should get you more interest thats awesome. How old are they?

Here is the link to the Etsy website. I posted on it and it only cost $0.20. I know some other myLotters buy and sell on this site as it was here that I heard about it. http://www.etsy.com/index.php

I may have to list them as Vintage if I sell on Etsy. Do you know how long a listing lasts? I am being lazy thinking if you know I will not have to look it up.

It last for months until you remove it. As is it so cheap to post it takes forever or a lot of postings before you ever get billed for their minimum payment of $2.00.

I would first check out the "want it now" board on ebay. Could be that someone is looking for your magazines. Secondly you can sell you magazines at ioffer.com or on esty.com. ioffer is like ebay only they only charge you a fee after you sell your items. And Esty is a craft only site. Good luck in selling your magazines.

I have some stuff and may try EBAY at some point. It looks like Etsy might work for these items.

I have never really liked Ebay and I have really trusted it and both me and fiance do not use Ebay because we both feel it is not a good site to shop from,I would,however, suggest Amazon.com because it is a very trusted site to sell stuff on,and me and my fiance have ordered a thing or two from it,and we were more than satisfied with the end results.

E-bay is probably the best for you. And ebay owns Paypal viceversa. So you can easy get payment threw Paypal quick and secure. Go for E-bay. Well if you can find any special for just your country I would have choosen that one instead. Else it's EBAY! Degger

Hi GardenGerty. I actually know of a few places that could help you, depending on how you want to handle your items. StormPay dot com offers free auction listings and is similar to Ebay in the set up of your auction items. I've posted a few items there because you can get all the extra stuff Ebay charges for, free with StormPay. Free listings expire after 7 days but can be renewed very easily if your item didn't sell. Stormpay is no longer an online payment processor so the payouts have to be arranged thru paypal so you'd still have the added option of receiving credit card payments if necessary. Their fee sheet does a comparison between the prices at StormPay, Yahoo auctions and EBay and it was a real eye opener for me when I was considering selling some of my stuff online. If you visit their site, go to the bottom of the page to see the fees link. You could also try the free listings available at craigslist. Their listings are of a more local variety, so you could even state that the item(s) must be picked up. It's a viable option if you didn't want to deal with packaging and shipping issues that come with selling online with sites like ebay.

I may try that with some items. I do not mind shipping the magazines. Etsy looks pretty good for those things. I may get into the Etsy thing for some other things.

I'm not too sure, I know there is www.half.com, a sister company of ebay, but I'm not sure if would include the sale of magazines. And I don't guess etsy would sell the magazines again, just people's crafts. I'm not too sure, so I'm hoping when I post this response, I'll be able to see other people's answers that are more helpful than my own. : (

Etsy will carry craft supplies as well as hand crafted items. I am still researching a little, but leaning that way. Problem is, Etsy requires a credit card, and I only use pre loaded cards, cause that is what got hubby and I in debt.
