Accept alternative payments such as PayPal, Square, or Venmo:
This will be especially helpful to shoppers that want to purchase larger items and may encourage people to buy more items.
Try to package your deals:
When talking to your shoppers, offer them deals if they buy more than one item, such as a whole set of dishes or a chair with a desk.
TIP: For items like books or movies, price them per box. Put 5-10 in a small box and price the whole box. Or, place empty bags or boxes nearby and let them fill up the box for a set price!
Have a catalog of heavy items. If there are items that you’re selling, but are too heavy to carry, have a catalog or photos posted with pricing.
Move the Sale:
If your house is in a rural area that doesn’t see much traffic, talk to a friend or family member about hosting the sale at their house. Place the largest and most expensive items closer to the street. This applies to seasonal items, furniture, yard décor, etc.
