Where can I get the most money when I sell RAM?

In terms of sheer value, direct to consumer is always going to bring a higher return in any commodity sale, but especially when you’re selling memory. While reddit and Craigslist might not always be the most secure options, they don’t charge fees like eBay  does.

As far as selling bulk quantities, it’s really just down to finding whichever IT reseller is willing to pay the most for it. At the end of the day their pricing will be fairly similar, so if pricing is less critical than time, you’ll just want to sell memory to the company that promises the easiest RAM resale process.

How long does it take to sell used memory?

To sell used memory, you can expect to get paid at latest two weeks from the time you actually sell your memory (approve the purchase order).

Once the memory is sold, you’ll need to ship it. Depending on which resource you use to sell your ram (reddit, eBay, trade-in sites), you’ll have to purchase shipping materials and buy a label.

From there it’s just the time for transit and the processing time of whatever company you chose to sell your used memory to.

Very few companies do prepay when you sell memory, and even if they do it’s typically after a relationship has been established.

How Do I Ship My Memory?

For a bulk quantity, you will definitely want to get specialized memory trays for the memory. Make sure you firmly tape the trays shut with strong tape to avoid any excessive motion in transit. Packing the box tight will help to limit motion as well, so be liberal with the bubble wrap.

For particularly valuable RAM modules, you may want to invest in shipping insurance to protect your investment.
