First you like the pages of Quikrr and Olx and take a photo of product which you want to sell and post them into the Olx and Quikrr and Facebook in the public pages so that anyone can see the pages and they can contact you so that you can easily sell your product on the Facebook.

Well, if you want to sell off your old stuff rather than setting up a product store, there is a method available.

Search for a Group

There are several buying and selling groups on facebook. Best way to find is using the Search field in facebook. Pay attention to a group that is limited to your state , or more preferably your immediate location. Use search field with the words "sell" along with your geographical location. Check whether the results you get are actually groups or 3rd party sites.

Join the Group

Many of the groups are not open. You may need to ask for permission.

Read the Rules

Check the rules of the group/s you joined. You can access rules under Notes tab. These will include how to post items and how to deal with the buyers among others.

Post your item

Decide on a Test item and list it on the group. You will begin getting comments from prospective buyers. Make sure to interact with the comments. If you do not feel like selling to a particular person, dont be compelled.

Follow up

Once you have an agreement to sell, try sticking to it. Make sure the transactions are in cash. Accepting cheque or other means would not be advisable.

There are two options, one is setting up a page and make posts where you offer those products. You need to have an image for that product but you can make that work and if you get contacts from local people then selling is possible.

Another option is to create a group and allow selling through this group. After making such setting it gives you option to sell and buy from the post itself. You get to choose payment from paypal as well.

So far many people have done good with the facebook page and they have success rates too.
