Fastest Way to Sell Diapers?

I have a laundry basket full of diapers I want to sell. I need to make some money from them so I don't want to just give them away, but I hate selling on here. It is a pain to take multiple pics of each diaper, upload the pics to photobucket, write a description, post pics, answer a million questions and then have no one buy, bump the post, finally sell something and then loose 1/2 your profit to PP fees and shipping.

What other options are there for selling used diapers? I have tried CL but not many people around here CD.

Re: Fastest Way to Sell Diapers?

Well no matter how you sell them you have to take pic's answer questions..... I know it can be a pita I haven't sold here yet but I do sell all the time on HC and I'm a powerseller on ebay. Interestingly enough buyers on HC want for the most part a cheap and super good deal besides S'bish i see. Ebay, buyers will pay much more. So go figure. I think it depends what your selling and condition in terms of buyers quickly buying. Price matters too. At least here and HC there is no listing fee's

Re: Fastest Way to Sell Diapers?

Any online sell is gonna require you to take pics and answer qs. Maybe a childrens used clothing store will purchase them or used consignment store will sell them for you, but I dont think you will get as much as if you sold them on DS

Re: Fastest Way to Sell Diapers?

You could try list them by just a detailed description of each diaper, but pictures are always best.

Advertise on craigslist maybe? then whoever is shopping can just come over and look at them.

Sell them in Lots. That make for less pics and less questions. I prefer to buy diapers in lots anyhow.

Maybe check yahoo groups or meetup for a local cloth diaper group? You may be surprised. Do you have any other local friends that CD? maybe try a cloth diaper yard sale.

I've held some for my local CD group.

Re: Fastest Way to Sell Diapers?

I know it kind of sucks but the only faster way to sell that I've figured out at least is to price it really low. If I sell locally I have to price ridiculously low to get anyone to bite--I guess there aren't that many people CDing and the ones that do are looking for a deal.

I've never tried ebay--interesting what the PP said--I'd like to try that and see if I can get more money that way.

There;s always re-diaper.com or cottonbabies if they're bg-- many places will buy your old dipes and then re-sell them for more, so you may make a little less but no pics or questions....
