    "Although I was kind of hesitant at first about selling my vinyl records online, Discogs actually has a pretty robust marketplace where you can sell to different listeners and collectors all over the world. It took some time to get it setup, but my boxes of records are slowly dwindling into a more manageable level (much to the happiness of my wife!)."

    "My parents were hippies in the 60s and I had such a huge collection of vinyl records and nowhere to put them in my new luxury 200 square foot Manhattan apartment. So I needed a place to sell them. e-Record Fair was that place and it did an amazing job. Now I can afford to eat. Yay!"

    "eBay is a great tool for placing items up for auction. One can easily list and sell vintage vinyl records for a small fee and be paid directly to their paypal account. I have used eBay for quite a few years and although the expansion of Marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay still has been an essential tool for me in selling hard to find and odd items."

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that the seemingly obsolete vinyl records are actually resurging amidst the fast-growing digital trends in music? Vinyl records (also known as gramophone record) refers to an analog sound storage medium originated in France in the 19th century. This form used to be the primary medium used for music until phonographic cylinders took over the market as it gained popularity in the 20th century. If you are planning to collect a few, you might want to consider the difference in the sound produced of the black vinyl from the colored ones. Sound experts say that colored vinyl records tend to produce more noise than the black ones. In addition, colored records are more prone to damage so invest in a good player and a case that would help retain the value of it. An interesting note to consider is its surprising comeback in the music industry. According to a news on Forbes, vinyl record sales are not just simply growing—they are growing even faster each year paving the way for different production companies to make them rare and collectible. Moreover, in the recent Nielsen Music report, it revealed that the past 12 years, including 2017, had been the renaissance period for vinyl records because it experienced a consecutive growth in sales. Last 2017, its sales comprised 14% of all the physical album sales. Rock music dominated the music chart on Billboard’s Top 10 Best Selling Vinyl Albums of 2017 in the United States with The Beatle’s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely-Hearts Club Band topping the list with a total of 72, 000 sales.

    "This is an obvious answer for where to sell anything online, and I don't agree that Amazon is a good choice for vinyl records. I think there are many other choices to sell products online, especially something specific such as records."

    "The Diskaos community pages are a great place to get my vinyl sold. It seems like most users have a very large knowledge base and are willing to pay what things are actually worth. Nothing seemed scammy and I felt at ease during the entire process. I would be glad to both buy and sell more vinyl there moving forward."

    "The site seems to lack an established and easy way of selling vinyl records. Most people would rather go to a larger website to handle any monetary transactions. Using advertising and marketing would be the best way to build the service. "
