I have a few used laptops and some are still in use now. How can I sell out these used laptops on Amazon, because I want to get a new laptop?

Three used laptops have been listed on Amazon for a few months, but there was nobody buying any of them. Each of used laptop has its unique condition and price.

Do people usually buy used laptops? What kinds of conditions do buyers prefer?

Price...Keep lowering the price until somebody buys it.

I would not buy a laptop from you. There is way to many terms written on there, the more you write the more it looks shady. Huge restocking fees do not help. Just sell them on craigslist. Save you a lot of trouble. Also, stop promoting your items. Reported.

I don't trust craigslist. I have put these items on craigslist, but I received numerous paypal spam emails from scammers. If I could not sell out those used laptops, then I would just use them on my own. I also saw a lot of skeptical "buy broken or unwanted laptops" on many advertisement sites. Are these advertisements really true? What price ranges would these people provide to used laptop sellers in general?

In addition, I put detailed condition note and return policy includes restocking fee for used laptops, because I do not want some buyers intentially to buy my laptops and use them for a few weeks, and then decided to return laptops to me at the end of return period. I have seen many sellers post detailed condition note on their expensive items. After seeing their and Amazon's descriptions, I created my own condition notes and return policy.

Then do not respond the the scam emails. Sell locally, ask a fair price and only take cash. I sell on craigslist constantly. I have never been scammed. You know why? I do not let myself get scammed. Craigslist is for local, cash sales only, nothing else. Places will buy your unwanted laptops, but for pennies on the dollar.

No one on earth is going to buy an outdated laptop "and use them for a few weeks". It is fine that you want to do that, I am telling you, it looks shady. Like it or not, that is the truth.

If you sell a quality product you do not need any of that. It totally looks like you are trying to pass off garbage with your "valuable HP laptop" and "I paid blah blah blah." Less is more. Quality speaks for itself, not a long list of words.

Thanks for your tips. I have sold my 6-year old HP laptop locally for $220 last year. I also sold a 3-year old netbook on amazon for $230 and a 1.3-year old Dell Windows 8 i3 laptop for $400 locally.
