They say it’s the thought that counts… But sometimes you receive something that is just not who you are. Let’s blame Valentine’s Day, the day you get the gifts you don’t need or get something a little techy that you’ll never use.
So what do you do? We’ve got you sorted:
If it’s tech, this is what you need to do before selling:
Back up all of your information: IOS or Android have their own cloud services that back up your information. Back it up here and on an external hard drive.
Reset your device: Ensure that all your information is properly deleted. This means that you’ll have to reset your device back to its original factory settings.
Deauthorise all subscription services: These are usually platforms like your social media accounts. Go onto your social media accounts/Netflix and make sure you unauthorise the device you’re going to sell.
Remove all extras: If you are selling a camera, ensure that you have removed the SD card, same as DVD players or CD’s.
Now that you’ve done all the hard work, where do you sell your devices?
OLX: Provide as much detail as possible on your second-hand product and then submit your ad.
Gumtree: Select the category you are selling your product in, then select the province you are in, add as much extra information that you can thereafter and then submit your ad.
Takealot: If you decide to go this route, you will need to sign up. This option will store your product and help you manage your inventory. Your items will then be displayed on their website and will be shipped to your buyer.
Always remember to be wary of scams and look ensure you keep safe while selling or shopping online.
