eBay is the largest online auction house in the world, and you can use it to help you sell your stuff. Both used and new items are sold on eBay, and millions of items of every kind are sold online every day. Simply create an account, provide your PayPal or bank account information where you can receive payments, and post the notice on the site. It is important that you only sell things that can be useful to people, as there are a large number of people who simply try to sell whatever junk they can find. Provide accurate, truthful descriptions of the products that you are trying to sell, and never embellish the truth.
