Auction sites frequently contain listings from users selling products no longer available from the original manufacturer, particularly in the realm of collectibles or electronics that feature annual models such as smartphones. These sites also commonly contain listings for beauty products, though some may be harmful to use if they are past the expiration date.

Craiglist.org contains a section dedicated to regional communities, including an extensive area for selling a wide range of products. Since the ads come from local users, the selection of discontinued products varies by region and over time. The site also contains a Wanted section that allows users to post ads requesting specific items for purchase or trade, which allows users to locate local owners of discontinued products.

Amazon.com offers items from many third-party retailers that commonly sell older models of products or versions that are not longer in current production. Some items may be available as used rather than new, depending on the nature of the product.

DiscontnuedNoMore.com helps connect users with retailers currently selling discontinued products through a special search system, though it requires an account to find and purchase items.
