With a surge in vinyl record collecting, many websites offer ways to sell vinyl records. List records on large auction websites, such eBay, for the widest audience. EBay charges sellers a fee based on the sale price of the item, and payments are made directly from the buyer to the seller.

Smaller websites specifically for music collectors are a better place to get the most money from rare titles. Discogs.com and CDandLP.com both offer fee-based listings. Discogs.com acts as an intermediary between the buyer and the seller, accepting the seller's payment and paying the buyer. This valuable service spares some of the hassle of dealing with individual buyers when selling large amounts of records. With CDandLP.com, payments are handled between the buyer and the seller, similarly to eBay. Diskaos.com features free listings to both buy and sell music.

Sell records on online classified sites, such as Craigslist. Try listing records for sale on local community pages on social media sites or the classified websites of local newspapers.
