You can get buyers from social media. In fact, there is a huge market in the social media. But there are things you should do too. First, you should take real pictures of the item you want to sell. The pictures should be clear and of high quality. Post them on your social media platforms. Make sure to include, the phone model, period of usage, and any other relevant information about the item on sale. It is important that you give details on the cost of the item, your phone number or email and the point of collection. If you decide to sell on social media stick to the truth and only the truth about the item on sale. Do lie about details like period of usage. It is important that the customer gets exactly what you had advertised.

Exchange for other items
