    "I've been using eBay for years and definitely one of the best apps to sell stuff. It is also filled with a lot of great deals but you have to take caution and be aware of scammers."

    "It is a great app to sell stuff and earn money. but after the recent update , you can't really see if your buyer is online or offline which is very hard to know when you can get your item if you want to have a meet up ."

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Fortnite gamers are selling Epic Game accounts on eBay? Fortnite is a free-to-play-game but some gamers are doling out thousands of dollars on it. Players of the battle royale-style game exchange real money for in-game currency. The currency or v-bucks can help players buy cosmetic upgrades. Gamers can also turn to their favorite local selling app like eBay to buy Fortnite accounts. Rather than use the app to sell stuff, Fortnite users with fully loaded with skins, emotes and accessories can auction their account. Other users purchase accounts in order to gain more skills or to increase their stats. For those that are not as willing to purchase an account, players can actually find coaching sessions on different online marketplaces.

Places to shop online could continue to grow and so will the needs of online shoppers. If gaming is not up your alley, then you can still choose from a variety of other products. One of the big-price items may just be in your home! Items related to home decor and home tech are popular items on online shops because buyers can find unique pieces for a fraction of the price. Some big-ticket items include lighting, coffee tables and sofas. Similarly, lots of users are looking for trendy apparel, shoes and accessories. While thrift shopping is still available in almost every state, finding fashionable and rare pieces from the comfort of your own home can be more convenient. If you’re looking to sell a pair of shoes, well you’re in luck! Shoes are one of the fastest selling items with a pair sold every twelve seconds. So whether you’re selling or buying, there is a place for you in online shopping.
