SellingBin.com is sort of like eBay, but in reverse. Instead of listing items for sale and waiting for someone to show up to buy it, this site lets you post your item to already-interested buyers and take the best quote. Often this happens almost immediately.
If you’ve got used electronics to get rid ofâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ„Ã¹maybe an old MP3 player or a laptop you don’t really needâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ„Ã¹you can go to SellingBin and sell them. The site model is interesting, for sure, though how how well it works is still up for debate.
The company has a client list of recyclers, used electronics peddlers, and the like that peruse the site’s back-end. When you go there to list your MP3 player, let’s say, you’ll enter pertinent information about it, including an evaluation form detailing what condition it’s in and whether anything no longer works.
Buyers interesting in that type of item will then be able to see it and post a bid to buy it. Shipping and payment information are sent to you and you send the item off to the buyer. More often than not, you aren’t paid until the item is received. It generally takes about 48 hours to begin receiving offers for your item.
Most of the items to be sold, of course, should have some kind of market. Your 1990s cam-corder is probably not sellable to anyone, but your 2002 iPod probably is. Further, it doesn’t look like you’re going to get rich off the site by hitting the yard sales and posting your finds on SellingBin to profit. The buyers are almost all professionals and generally pay pretty low-ball prices for the stuff they’re interested in.
If you have a garage full of non-collectible electronics, though, this might be the way to unload some of it. Gadget freaks who’re constantly upgrading and aren’t interested in wasting time trying eBay might also find SellingBin to be a good way to unload their stuff.
If you’re a buyer looking for access to large quantities of used electronics, you can ask to become a partner with SellingBin to gain access to the back-end for purchasing.
