    Question Selling old stuff? What sites do locals frequent?

    I am trying to get rid off some home appliances. They are working condition but old. I tried posting them on geoexpat classifieds but admittedly I am selling to the wrong audience (expats, high income)

    What are the sites that Locals use to trade used stuff? I don't mind using on online converter to converse in Cantonese if needed

    thx

    Locals don't trade used stuff, they throw it away.

    But you could try Yahoo auctions in HK perhaps.

    I have had a lot of luck with the Carousell and Letgo apps lately, they are both very easy to use and are frequented by locals.

    What are you selling. Price it right and it will sell. If you claim your sofa is 50k and you ask for 5-10k. It isn't selling. Maybe 500 it will. 500 is a magic number and 100-200 for small appliances. A Chinese removal service will come in and give you $100 for Tv and $10 for small appliances.

    I will give them a try.

    I tried Yahoo Auctions (crap) and Facebook (there are quite a lot very active groups). For camera related DCFever (100% Chinese) is very good.

    Another thing I forgot to mention, is that both apps allow you to post to FB groups from within the app, which helps to increase exposure.

    I'm pretty sure if you search Hong Kong Classifieds, Hong Kong second hand sales, Hong Kong expat Swaps etc you'll find some
