What are the best apps to buy stuff or sell used items?
The predecessor of Milanuncios was Segundamano – which is Spanish for secondhand – and as its name suggests, this website was all about buying and selling secondhand goods.
From its foundation in Mexico, it has come across the Atlantic to Barcelona. It was then taken over by Vibbo, and now it’s Milanuncios.
On Milanuncios, you can find thousands of things on sale, or put up a free and easy to use digital classified ad. On the new Android-based app, you can buy and sell without any middle-men help in multiple categories.
There are vehicles, computers, video games, home appliances, clothing, and much more. For those who are selling, take a couple of pictures, write a description, and put it up for sale.
Produced in Barcelona, Wallapop is a huge favorite for the buying and selling of books, DVDs, clothing, and other necessities. It is like a local yard sale on the phone.
Simply select where you live and look for the nearest seller or seeker who may just be a few blocks away. Once you find what you want to buy or sell, simply meet up and exchange.
It really is that easy. Wallapop is free for Android devices (4.0+) and iPhones and is used by over ten million people worldwide.

LetGo is another free Barcelona-based app that lets people buy and sell goods with customized ads to be shared on all social media platforms. It has also risen as an alternative use for finding used items.
It’s super fast, and an item can be posted in just seconds. It also has an image recognition feature to name and tag the items automatically. Letgo shows great deals within the area for anything specific, and users can chat with others instantly. It is a growing app trend in Barcelona.
Sometimes, secondhand is better than brand new. Secondhand items can often still be functional, sturdy, and, of course, more affordable. People should not always go for new unless it’s desperately needed.
Everyone has something used they don’t need anymore. Instead of dumping it, why not sell it? There is always a buyer. Check out these apps and find what you need for cheap right around the corner from home.
