If you are interested in making quick easy cash without any hassle or stress, a pawn shop is the best place to go. Trying to sell your item online may take weeks or even months; hence why selling your item to a pawn shop is your best bet. You can get cash the same day and be out the door in a few minutes.

As there are many online selling platforms such as Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace, many may wonder whether it’s better to sell online or via local pawn shops. We will explain the difference here.


In most cases, you will not get your item’s asking price at a pawn shop. However, it is not always guaranteed on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace either — where people haggle over prices as well, looking to make their own deal. 

At a pawn shop, it is simple — you agree on the price and walk away with instant cash.


Sometimes you might not know the exact value of the items you’re selling.

When you sell on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace, you need to research the price and value on your own. Next, you will post the item and wait for an offer.  You may experience receiving low offers or many spam offers. You may even lack offers and have to reduce the price in order to make a sale.

When using a pawn shop, the professionals give you a fair assessment of your item without the hassle of haggling.


Selling your items through internet sources like Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace exposes you to more potential buyers. Not everybody online has good intentions and you might be defrauded. Online selling is not regulated and it is virtually impossible to track down fraud.  Additionally, when selling online — you might need to travel long distances to meet your buyer.

However, pawn shops, are regulated by each state and have their own regulatory laws.  They also have a physical location and are secure places and you can speak to trusted employees.
