Who doesn’t have an ancient laptop or a forgotten digital camera lurking around in the back of their junk drawer? Electronic waste is rampant, and it’s making it impossible for people to truly clean out their closets and move forward with their lives. Worth Monkey is a web-app that can help people get rid of their digital and non-digital clutter, to make more room for all the new products they need – or maybe just want – to have in their lives.
To use Worth Monkey, just head to the site and type in the name of the product you want to discard. Be as specific as possible – since a general term like “laptop” or “phone” isn’t likely to generate very good results – and wait for Worth Monkey to pull up a graph showing the average price that your used product is selling for online. Based on current searches of recent online listings from places like eBay, Amazon, and Google, Worth Monkey is able to pinpoint a great price, a fair price, and an over priced amount for just about any product you search for on the site.
Although Worth Monkey is geared towards people trying to sell electronic goods, the web-app can also generate price comparisons for cars, bikes, sports equipment, and more. Essentially, Worth Monkey takes the guess work out of pricing when it comes time to sell virtually any type of real world item – hopefully speeding up the time it takes to sell your used goods on Craigslist, eBay, or even at real world auction houses in your local town.
