Buy, swap and sell on Facebook

It has never been easier to buy, swap and sell your things.

Furniture, baby goods, sports equipment, clothes, you name it. All it takes is a quick post on Facebook - with a photo uploaded from your phone - and you’re in business.

If you’re not on Facebook, ask a friend or relative to help you out.

It’s a great way to clean up around the house, while making some extra cash.

You get rid of something you no longer need, someone else picks it up for a bargain price and nothing goes to landfill – everyone’s a winner!

Tips for selling items on Facebook

  • Make sure you include a photo, brief description of your item, price, measurements (for furniture items) and specify if it needs to be picked up or if you are willing to deliver it.
  • If you’ve advertised it elsewhere, make sure you write that in the post.
  • If your item has any noticeable damage/flaws then be up front about it and let people know in your post.
  • Once your item has been sold, make sure you delete your post.
  • If you want to get rid of a large number of items – such as toys or baby clothes – then sell them as a bundle.
  • Don’t tell people your address in a public post, instead negotiate pick up with the person buying it via a private message.
