What is Decluttr?
Decluttr is a website that also has an app, which can be used to sell and buy used stuff online. This website can prove to be very useful if you have a lot of stuff lying around collecting dust. They focus on tech, but you can also sell CDs, DVDs, games and books on their website and app. Right from the start, I can see that they are making it easier to sell your stuff. The website has a clear layout, and I don’t think that people would find it hard to use the website at all.
This company was founded in the year 2014 by Steve Oliver and Walter Gleeson. Their website has been featured on NBC News, TechRadar, Good Morning America, The Penny Hoarder and the Wall Street Journal.
In this review, we will see if this website is a good way to sell your stuff online. This review is not written with the intention of promoting this website, so you can trust this review.
How does Decluttr work?
Let us start with tech. When you are trying to sell tech on their website, then you just have to find the brand and model of your device. Most people already know the brand and model of their devices. If you don’t know about the model, then you can simply look at the box of the device or do a Google search.
You have to enter the brand and model number and select the condition of your device. There are three different options when it comes to the condition of your device, and they are good, poor and faulty. Most devices would be in good condition as they accept some light wear and tear in this condition. However, if there is some heavy damage and software issues, you will have to select the faulty condition.
They have a description of the different conditions that will help you decide the condition of your device. Once you enter everything, which includes your brand, model and condition, you will see the offer price.
I like the fact that you don’t have to waste any time to find the price that they are willing to offer. You don’t have to write a description and wait to hear back from them. This is the case with a lot of similar websites, but this website has made the process easier.
They guarantee that you will get the price that they promise, or you will get your device back for free.
If you are trying to sell CDs, DVDs, books or games, then you have to download their app and scan the barcode to get the offer price. Once you have scanned the items, you have to select the payment method. You can get paid through PayPal, direct deposit or cheque. Alternatively, you can enter the barcode on their website to get the offer price.
The process of sending the items to them is also pretty simple. You just have to pack the items in a box and attach the free shipping label. You can get the label through email after you complete the order. Once you are done, you can send the items to them for free. After the items arrive, they will check the items and pay you the very next day.
When it comes to tech, they may offer you a revised price after evaluating the items. You can request the tech items back for free if you don’t like their revised price. However, this is not the case with CDs, DVDs, games or books. They will not return your items back if they fail the quality assessment process. So, you need to be careful about what you send to them.
Overall, they stand out in simplicity and ease of use. I think that they are more suited to selling tech because they give a good price and offer to give your items back for free if they fail to pay you the offer price. They have an app for both iOS and Android making it easier to sell stuff without using your computer.
In short, they are a great way to sell your stuff online and earn some money in the process.
How much does it cost to join?
It is free to use their website to sell products. They even allow you to ship stuff to them for free. I don’t think that any website like this one charges people to sell products on their website. Some of the websites may ask you to pay for the shipping, but none of them will ask you to pay to sell the products. However, you will lose money by sending them CDs, DVDs, books or games that don’t pass their quality assessment process.
How much can I earn?
Your earnings will depend on how many products you have lying around in your house. It would be worth selling the products that you are not using anymore to earn some extra money. Selling products that you are using will certainly make you lose money. The aim of this website is to allow you to sell unwanted stuff and clear some space in your house, so you need to remember that.
Do they offer a fair price for your products? In most cases, I would say that they offer a reasonable price for the products. Their quoted price is reasonable, but you will not get the quoted price in all cases. They will review your items, and the price may change after reviewing the items. In some cases, people complain about a low revised price. People complain that they are making up excuses and offering a low price.
However, most people are clearly satisfied with the price that they offer. So, you shouldn’t face much issues. If you are unlucky, you may run into an issue. If you are selling tech, then there is no need to worry as you will get your item back for free.
Selling DVDs, games, CDs or books can be risky in certain cases. In certain cases, you will not get your items back and lose the opportunity to sell them somewhere else.
In short, you can earn a decent amount of money if everything goes well.
Are there any complaints?
Yes, I have listed some complaints below.
They rip off people by lowballing items dirt cheap.
According the Payment Promise on the website, Decluttr.com will “pay the full amount we offer for your Tech or return them for FREE”. I did not receive any return of my item.
Decluttr is not a scam. This website is surely worth considering if you are trying to sell tech products. I don’t really recommend it for anything else unless you are 100% sure that they will accept your items. I hope this review cleared your doubts. Good luck.
