Here are some tips and tricks for selling your used baby goods online.
1. Buy top quality, highend or trendy baby products.
For big ticket baby items like a playpen, breast pump or high chair - you are better off buying the top of the line product than something that is cheap. You will have an easier time getting rid of a high end product that people want but don't want to pay full price for. I sold my very expensive playpen for 75% of its retail price within a day, while other playpens sat on the listings for weeks.
2. Ask yourself - is this reusable after wear and tear
If you buy a product that you are going to want to resell after, make sure that it will still be of good quality after it goes through various cycles in the laundry machine. My daughter used cloth diapers everyday until she was 18 months old and they still looked great when she was done with them. I was able to sell them within a week of posting.
3. Do your research before posting.
Before you post your product online, make sure you know the retail price and if others are selling a similar product. This will help you determine the price you should sell it for. Also make sure to use key words that people will search for in your posting. For example, if you are selling a travel crib that can also be used as a playpen, make the title "Travel Crib and Playpen".
4. Tell your friends.
Post your listing on Facebook, Tweet and/or send an email out.
