Yes, Etsy. I've also had a couple of sales through instagram.

also:
Boot sales / flea markets
Local auctions
Directly contacting shops and individuals who might want to buy what your selling.

By directing people to my online shop, and making posts that were 'for sale' adverts.

If this isn’t allowed please erase -

Am a bit of a fraud lol as I didn’t ever class my reselling online as making money online !! And yes I do that.
One of the up and coming platforms I’m on has an offer in at the moment for all new sellers if they use the code below (I didn’t know if I’m allowed to put this as I benefit too?)
Also the other one I’m on - if I introduce a friend and they make a certain number of sales ( details I’m not sure yet ) then they get commission free sales for 3 months - il look into that and get back to you - if that’s allowed (admin please advise)

It would help if I told you the platform for the £5 offer - it’s mercari and it’s an app!

Hi - Not used Mercari myself but I've heard from other people who use it and are getting on ok. I think there's mention of it in the referrals section of the board so might be worth dropping your referral link in there

Groan, another app. Am I the only person who still prefers to use a proper computer. Wish they would have a desktop version for these things as well.

Great, some of these are new to me! I'd stopped doing much reselling but it's so addictive!

Mercari banned me because i swore at someone who scammed me.. they didn't let me withdraw the money i had in there either... (I only used mercari to sign people up and get my £2... Signed about 10 of my friends up and mercari closed my account.)

Can’t say I’m surprised considering I’ve never seen or heard of anyone I know using Mecari at all.
They banned me just because i pointed out (but I'm not a snitch) someone who was selling banned items
