GPU Marketplace Comparison Infographic

Ecommerce Marketplaces

ecommerce marketplaces

If you’re willing to put in the time and effort required to sell them yourself, there are buyers out there for your graphics cards on e-commerce marketplaces like eBay and Amazon.

As with a broker, here you’ll pay a commission of approximately 15%, after all fees are paid, not including shipping. Also, like a broker, you’re paying for access to a trusted network.

Getting started

You’ll need to set up a seller account, which is easy enough on eBay (easier said than done on Amazon). Abide by their terms. You’ll likely have to sell for lower than market price, while paying the higher, entry-level commissions, unless you have some positive reviews/feedback. It helps to have a bit of history on eBay & Amazon.

Listing presentation

Your success will depend on the quality & presentation of your listing. Listings that perform better make use of attractive, high-quality pictures and accurate descriptions of the condition.

Returns & Scams

Expect a 10% average rate of returns in this category. While the risk is lower than peer-to-peer methods, some scammers are skilled enough to fool even the most die-hard skeptics of human nature, if you’re not careful. To protect yourself against returns, you should document the packing of your product with details visible using pictures & videos in the event of a dispute.

Any eBay buyer may bid on your listing, and as such, you won’t really have control over the quality of your customer. This can lead to bad selling experiences and is just a part of the process.

Summary

Overall, this is a great option if you can dedicate the time and have small quantities of graphics cards. If you do, you will likely find the uphill battle not worth the headache.

Disclaimer: We are a leading seller of graphics cards on these marketplaces and have a finely-tuned machine for minimizing returns, shipping headaches, and a great reputation for quality products and service, which allows us to make sellers like you better offers for your graphics cards.

Peer-To-Peer

open market, peer-to-peer, face-to-face

Selling using these methods usually works best in densely-populated areas, as this increases the size of the buyer pool and reduces the distance you’ll need to travel to meet up.

The advantages of peer-to-peer, p2p, marketplaces, including Facebook Marketplace, Facebook groups, Reddit Hardwareswap & Minerswap, Anandtech, Letgo, Offerup, etc. are that you’ll get to keep more of the sale price due to the fact that no one is taking a commission. You can pay to promote your post, but that is not usually necessary unless you want to sell ASAP.

Scammers abound in the peer-to-peer markets, and although communities within Reddit have implemented guidelines and rep systems to deal with scammers, con men are still watching those forums closely. Prepare to vet any buyer using these helpful guidelines. Watch out for buyers insisting on non-cash payment upfront. Even PayPal G&S, which has great buyer protection, doesn’t always return your payment.

We reached out to the Hardware Swap mods to ask whether escrow via escrow.com was an acceptable method of payment for larger transactions and they said they can only recommend PayPal Goods & Services. PayPal Goods & Services is ideal for small, infrequent transactions. If you routinely use your PayPal account for larger transactions or if you engage in frequent use of your PayPal account, your chances of interacting with scammers increases proportionally. As PayPal G&S acts as a type of transaction insurance, too many adverse incidents where PayPal needs to cover losses will negatively impact your track record and ability to transact using PayPal.

COVID-19 Update: Since this guide was written, face-to-face transactions, as are common with p2p sales, pose additional risks of coronavirus transmission. CDC recommended precautions for personal protection and social distancing should be followed to help stop the spread of the virus.

Your Network

Family, friends, and colleagues may also be interested in your graphics cards. Especially if you’re a gamer and have gamer relatives and friends.

While you may be done with your hardware, it’s possible that someone you know would buy your old card. Expect to gain more goodwill than cash as you’ll likely want to sell at a “family & friends discount”.
