Full Answer

When an individual sells used furniture through eBay and Craigslist, he is able to retain full control of the selling process and does not need to sacrifice a substantial portion of the profits to the sites themselves. To sell on eBay, users simply need to create a free Seller account, verify personal information and create a listing that includes a description and pictures of the piece of furniture. Users are able to sell with either an auction model or a traditional one-time purchase price.

Alternately, Craigslist does not require its users to create an account in order to post on the site. All an individual needs is a valid email address through which she can accept the sites terms of use, as of March 2015. Users can add text or images to listings, but are only able to share the listings within one specific city or major metropolitan area in a state, compared to eBay's global reach.
