Application Review: Glyde

You won't need those Harvard Classics if your new house has Internet! (That's a joke!)

You won't need those Harvard Classics if your new house has Internet! (That's a joke!)

When you move, you get rid of stuff. We’d all rather sell it (if not give it to someone who needs it), but sometimes that can be a hassle. If you don’t have the time, a yard sale can be a whole debacle, especially if you don’t have a lot of things to get rid of.

I’ve thought about selling stuff on eBay. Tons of times. But I hate going to the post office or the UPS Store and having to ship things. I feel like, once I got paid, I would be under all this pressure to get it in the mail on time. And how much should I charge for shipping? I don’t want to think, I want an online yard sale. On the flip side, where is the accountability for me, a procrastinator with constant car problems? What about the guy from Ohio that bought my remastered version of Born to Run? He should know that he isn’t sending his money to someone who won’t get it to him in time for his big barbecue.

That was not my blog persona trying to create a personal framework to introduce this website. That is actually me. And Glyde is actually a website that takes care of a few issues I’ve always had with online auctions.

Number one: shipping. If you sell something on Glyde, they actually send you the packaging themselves, in the mail. They call it a “mailer,” and you simply put the item in there and place it back in your mailbox. The addressing and shipping costs are taken care of already, and you don’t even have to leave your house. Glyde charges the seller only for the price of the mailer, which is negligible.

Number two: getting paid. On Glyde, the price is set; you know what you will be paid if someone decides to buy from you. Once they receive the item, the money is deposited into your account on the website, so you won’t have to work with PayPal or bring a stranger’s check to the bank.

Number three: listing. The information on Glyde is straightforward. If someone is looking for what you’re selling, they will find it, no problem. You don’t have to type a breathless description (in ALL CAPS) of your copy of Moby Dick. Listing only takes seconds.

Another nice feature is that you can organize your collection online and it shows you the projected worth of what you have. For example, you may have 20 books that are worth $113.82. Not everything in your collection is listed for sale; you decide when that happens. Plus, when you buy something, Glyde automatically adds the item to your collection. It’s like an online bookshelf with price tags.

That all being said, there are a couple of reasons that Glyde may not be right for you. The company asks for 10% of what you make, which isn’t that much, but you might prefer to chance it on an auction where you can get your full asking price, or more. Also, at the moment, the website only deals in selling DVDs, CDs, books, and games. Your old records and McDonald’s toy collection will need another way to find new homes.

All in all, Glyde takes a lot of the guesswork out of selling online. It is an attractive, streamlined website that is sure to gain a lot of ground in the market very soon.
