The most common ways to sell old computers are online through eBay or in person using classified sites, such as Craigslist. Craigslist ads are free to post, while eBay listings come with seller fees and shipping costs.
Although some stores, such as computer repair and resale shops, may purchase old computers, sites like eBay and Craigslist allow buyers to cast a wide net over potential buyers.
Prices are easy to determine by searching eBay for completed listings for the exact model of the PC. These completed listings show how much people are willing to pay for the computer.
Before selling an old computer, sellers should remove all personal data from the PC.
