Earn P17k from things that no longer ‘spark joy’
It might be difficult to visualize an organized, more spacious home when you’re just about to start on the task. But a leading online classifieds platform may just have the best motivation to get you started—turn your clutter into P17,700. A recent study by OLX identified the potential profit an individual can earn by decluttering their home and selling pre-owned goods.
The research identified the popular, fastest-selling categories include fashion, gadgets, and health and beauty products. It then further looked into the pre-loved items most often bought in these categories, the average price of these items and the average number of times buyers purchase them in a year. Based on these data, one can potentially earn an estimated P17,700.
“Our research shows a trend. More and more offline sellers are moving into the online domain to sell pre-loved items. Their top three reasons? One, it’s easy and convenient. Two, it reaches more shoppers compared to offline selling, in which the audience is limited by location. Lastly: Earn money. Instead of letting your old stuff collect dust in a drawer, sell it and make money,” said OLX Philippines head of goods and services Rambo Joinani.
