Three best alternative websites to buy smartphone accessories

Though there are many e-commerce websites, including Amazon and eBay that allow you to purchase smartphones through their sites, Craigslist, Olx and Facebook marketplace are the other popular options which offer host of purchaser friendly benefits.

Smartphones come with myriads of features and they are costly. So, everybody want to complement them with the best possible accessories. Unlike the phones, the accessories such as phone cases may not be branded products and you need to go through a few options to find cost effective deals. While Amazon and the eBay are always there for this purpose, we are looking at a few options where you can find classified adverts of potential sellers. The online retail market is booming nowadays and it is not a bad idea to explore a few marketplaces that can find a cheaper deal for you.
Craigslist, as you might know, is a very minimalist site where you can place free classified adverts. If you think eBay has become too commercialized, you may find more genuine buyers in a site like Craigslist. What is better is that it has customized pages for almost every major city in the world. So, all you have to do is select your hometown from the homepage and you will reach a page where all the sellers and service providers from your hometown are listed. You may find online retailers those who want to sell their old smartphone accessories and other things. The best part of this site is its extremely localized design that makes it easier to find the best deals near your home. Also, the deliberately no frills design means that you can avoid unwanted distractions as well as adverts that hinder your shopping process.
Olx is a comparatively new entrant in the market but is already big enough to offer interesting options especially if you are from US or India. This is another website where you can select your location first and then go on searching for what you need. It offers what Craigslist does but goes a step further by making the interface sleeker and integrating social networking features such as sharing and commenting etc. So, in addition to searching your desired mobile accessories in your nearest location you can also share your recommendations and see what your peers have to say about the same. Though it sacrifices some of Craigslist's minimalist efficiency, it makes up for that by making it a more enjoyable and visually attractive experience.

Facebook Marketplace

Everybody uses Facebook. Since it already has a huge socially connected user base, it is also toying with the idea of classified listings. Since it already has access to your personal data it will be easy to provide customized services to you according to your location as well as preferences. But it is still very new and will take some time before it becomes a major player but we are still keeping it in the list as it comes with the backing of a social media giant. So if you are in need of smartphone accessories, this too is worth checking out.

In general, there are scores of ecommerce sites that use various modes of transaction like fixed price, bidding and barter. But it is a good idea to find localized classifieds as they can help you save your shipping cost apart from providing better options.
