How To's, Lacrosse, Selling

3 Tips for Selling Your Extra Sports Equipment Online

The average sports family has $500 worth of “old” gear sitting at home.

Most don’t realize how easy it is to sell it online.

We spoke to Caelan (@callaugh), an Ohio high schooler who made $5,000 (not a typo!) selling a decade’s worth of lightly-used lacrosse and hockey gear on SidelineSwap. His tips for getting started?

  1. Start small. Upload a few items to test the waters.
  2. Set prices at least 50% off retail. (Not sure what it’s worth? A quick google search for the brand and model does the trick.
  3. Take good pictures. You don’t need to be an artiste (use your smartphone!), but good lighting and a solid background make all the difference. (You can see my Bucknell polo here.)

It’s that simple.

Listing items is free and once something sells SidelineSwap will send you a prepaid shipping label. All you need to do is print, pack, and ship.

List your first item today, or read more about selling on SidelineSwap in our help section side.
