The Flip: Edition 7

Sam Aprile

Sam is a Product Marketing Manager @ StockX

The (early) holiday season has arrived, and we expect this year to be bigger and better than ever. In years past, we’ve seen historic trading activity throughout the holidays, so get those Asks up ASAP.

Holiday Selling Starts Now

We’ve got a LOT planned for this holiday season, including giveaways, activations, promos, daily shopping guides, and more. 

Be sure to check out our Win the Holidays Landing Page to stay updated on everything happening. 

Sell Action Figures on StockX

Add action figures to your list of items to flip! You can now list the best from Star Wars, Marvel Legends, Masters of the Universe, and much more. Check out the full catalog here.

Electronics Are In High Demand

From new gaming consoles like the Nintendo Switch OLED to the latest and greatest Apple products, there’s often significantly more demand than there is supply for these hot products – meaning more opportunity to flip for a profit.

Note: The Nintendo Switch OLED and other electronics can only be sold from the US. Please check the product pages before attempting to sell. 

Seller Drop-Off Is Open In London

We recently opened up our seller Drop-Off in London. If you’re in Soho, stop by our pop-up to drop off your StockX sales, shop for the hottest sneakers, apparel, and collectibles, and chat with the team. For more info, click here.
