This Post is NOT About Starting a Business Selling DVDs
It is about how to sell DVDs that are taking up space. DVDs that you would rather use for other stuff. DVDs you will never watch again and that you don’t want any more. If you want to make a little cash from your old DVDs, you have come to the right place. (If you are interested in an online business click here.)
Do you Own DVDs You Want to Get Rid of – Like I Do?
Rather than just throw them out, I thought ” Why not sell them and make a little money?”
I didn’t want a garage sale or Craigslist, so I did a little research on how to sell DVDs online. To get the best prices, Ebay and Amazon are good options, especially if you have popular DVD’s or collectable ones that are hard to find. Do a little research on line and at Amazon and Ebay to see if what you have is selling and for how much. Then you can decide if if is worth your time, money and effort to market them yourself.
There is also another option that will generate quick cash without the hassles and fees, but you will be selling at a discount. There are online companies that buy used DVDs for resale.
The links in this post are NOT “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase an item, I will not receive an affiliate commission. My reviews are based on my research and/or use of the product and are my own opinion. They are only for your convenience. I hope you find these reviews helpful.
