- For vintage clothing, Depop is the most obvious choice for our flippers, we featured the app in a recent blog post and expect a few of our shrewd dealers to make good money here.
- Shoryuken’s tech forum is a hotbed for gaming tech to be bought, sold and traded. There are many niche forums like this one where dedicated fans can show off their unique or rare items.
- A healthy alternative selling platform, Gumtree allows you to list and sell items with no fees, as a more stripped-down selling platform.
