Things we buy

nickel buyer

Question: Where to sell fast for the most cash? Answer: 2nd Markets.

Sell your collection or estate in one lump sum to a trustworthy buyer with an A+ BBB rating and years of 5 star reviews. Consigning to an auction house can take years and the commission fees are extremely high nowadays (as much as 70% on low value items, and even 40% on high value items when adding in the buyer premiums). Selling one-by-one online in marketplaces like Amazon and eBay are time-consuming full-time jobs if you have a large quantity of items to deal with. And again, the fees you pay to these venues are high, as high as 25% on Amazon and higher if you give the buyer free shipping (which Amazon requires you to do to get preferred placement).

So, if you want to sell fast in one transaction to a trusted buyer with over 30 years experience buying from the public, you have found the right place.
