Got a house full of unwanted stuff but you’re not sure whether you want to throw it all away? We’ve listed some of the top selling apps and websites currently active, so you can turn your old belongings into a bit of extra cash instead.


With Vinted, you can sell, buy and swap pre-loved clothes instantly on your phone. List as many items as you like for free and make a bit of cash by decluttering your closet.

Simply snap a few pics, describe your item and you’re all ready to get selling. The pricing is completely up to you, so you can decide how much you make. Postage is simple too: just enter your barcode from the Post Office so that Vinted can track your parcel and keep you updated on its whereabouts.

We Buy Books
We Buy Books is a super simple way to turn your unwanted books, CDs, DVDs and video games into cash.

To get started, head over to the selling basket and either scan or type in the ISBN number or barcodes of the items you want to sell. We Buy Books will give you an instant quote for each item, and if you’re happy, simply accept the offer and let them know your preferred payment method.

All you need to do then is print off the postage label supplied via email, box up your unwanted items and post them for free using their designated courier service. Once your items have been received and checked, you’ll get your payment the next day!
