Sold [Broken URL Removed] landed on thethis Tuesday, about five months after its debut on iOS. The app aims to make it as easy as possible for you to sell your gadgets. They list your items for sale, find a buyer, then ship a pre-paid, pre-insured, tracked, bubble wrap-filled box to your house. All you have to do is pack your items inside and send it back.
They currently deal mostly with electronics — smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. — but they also sell handbags, watches, shoes, sunglasses, and could expand to more products in the future. Their system is different from other services because there is no web interface; everything is done through the iOS or Android app. The company wants to handle all the dirty work of selling so that you don’t have to.
Android users will also benefit from all the goodies introduced in Sold 2.0 last month, including faster times from pricing to sale, accepting items worth as low as $50, and the ability to get a price for your item either instantly or within 24 hours. Popular items can even be guaranteed to be sold within an hour. Plus, Sold includes all marketplace and shipping fees in the number they quote you, so the amount you are quoted is the amount you receive.
With funding from investors at Google Ventures, Greylock Partners, Matrix Partners, Boston Seed Capital, and Angel Investors, Sold has seen enormous growth in the short time it has been around.
What do you think of Sold? Will be using the new service, or will you stick to eBay, Gazelle, Craigslist, or any of the other many buying/selling services? Let us know in the comments.
