How To Sell Software Online
Need to know how to sell software online? Maybe you've finished the perfect, but not re-playable, PC game or need to replace an application with a better one. You are probably wondering how you can sell your used software online. You can legally sell used software online, but you must do so according to the software's user license. Find a copy of the license and figure out what items you need to give up to sell an obsolete computer program online.
You will usually need the boxes, the manuals and the discs to sell your software online. You will also need to destroy any copies of the software that you made for backup purposes. When you sell a piece of software, you are not just selling the discs or the manuals. You are selling the right to use the software to someone else. This right is called a license.
- Unlike driver's licenses, software licenses do not have to be renewed. Transferring a software license does not require complicated paperwork. All it takes is surrendering the necessary items to the person you are giving the discs and manuals to.
Making sure you sell the software legally is important, but even if you can sell a program legally, you still need a buyer. Taking out ads in the local paper or penny advertiser will let people know that you have the product for sale. The ad my even result in a sale, but it is unlikely. Most users have better luck selling popular applications or PC games online through auction sites.
- Take a picture and put the software you want to sell up for online auction. Title the auction with the exact name of the item. Be honest in the product description. Using a funny title may allow you to flex your creative muscles, but it will not sell the software.
- You can get an idea of the price you should charge for your software by searching for similar items. Just remember that putting it up for sale online doesn't mean someone will buy it. Selling console video games is much easier than selling PC software. There's more of a chance that a person will want an older console game than that a person will want PC video game classics.
