Why Sell My Tech Stuff on eBay Before Christmas?
As we head towards the festive period, many people are beginning to gear up and get ready for the big spending and crazy dimensions that tend to come with this type of work. New purchases, crazy bargains and mad-rush sales to try and get the last console in store will become a regular occurrence for people all across the world as we head towards December and a truly monumental conclusion of the year.
Selling old technology on eBay can be one of the best ways to try and drive up your income en route if you are struggling to get the cash together to buy presents right away. So what makes eBay so useful to those who are looking to make a quick buck to help fund their own present buying?
Extra Cash Potential
It’s coming up for Christmas, and people are desperate. Usually when you are selling tech you will be knocking a huge amount of the price just to get a sale. At Christmas, competition become far more diverse and you might get a better price than you usually would. This isn’t to say that you should drive up your prices out of greed but you don’t need to undercut half the market just to get noticed at this time of year.
Typically, the going rate is well accepted and can be a great starting point – you no longer need to undersell your products when you deal with them on the run up to Christmas as people are actively buying everything.
Spread the Happiness
One of the most important aspects of selling tech on eBay, though, is the wealth of goodwill you bring. The buyer may be losing sleep over trying to get their child the tech they need for Christmas, and it could be causing them serious problems. If you are able to help another person get an easier sleep the night before Christmas as they don’t need to worry about making back payments or that they aren’t doing enough for their children, you can sleep easy yourself.
Overall, Christmas and the festive period is about goodwill and helping others be successful – if you are able to do this then you will notice a significant boost to your own lifestyle and your own mood. You’ll have made a nice little earner from a product that wasn’t being used, and you have helped somebody else have a great Christmas – overall, that’s got to go down as a win/win, right?
