If you’re like many people, your Funko pop collection has grown to the point where it’s becoming a bit of a nuisance. You trip over them when you walk into your room, they’re constantly getting dust on them, and let’s be honest, you could really use the extra cash. So what’s a collector to do? Sell those pops, of course! But where can I sell my Funko Pops, you ask? Let’s break down a few of the most popular options.
Local Collectibles Stores
If you have any local collectibles stores in your area, they may be interested in buying your Funko Pops. This is a good option if you want to get rid of your collection quickly and without having to deal with shipping. Of course, you’ll probably get less money per Pop than if you sold them online, but it’s worth considering if convenience is a priority for you.

Let’s start with the most obvious option: eBay. eBay is great because it’s an online marketplace that reaches a large audience all over the world. That means that no matter what kind of Funko pop you have, there’s bound to be someone out there who’s willing to pay top dollar for it. However, there are also drawbacks to selling on eBay.
First, you have to pay fees to list your items, as well as transaction fees if your item sells. Second, dealing with shipping can be a pain. And finally, there’s always the risk that buyers will back out of their purchase or leave you negative feedback.
Do U Have
If you’re not willing to pay transaction fees and manage listings, you can always check out Do U Have. Do U Have is a platform dedicated to buyers — which means buyers post what collectibles or vintage items they’re looking for and sellers can reach out to them directly. It’s an easy, no-hassle way for sellers to find buyers for your Funko Pops.

Another option is selling on Facebook Marketplace or in one of the many Facebook groups dedicated to Funko pop collectors. The advantage of this method is that it tends to be cheaper than eBay (since you don’t have to pay fees) and it’s usually easier to find buyers who are local (no shipping necessary). However, the downside is that not as many people are looking at Facebook for Funko pops as they are on eBay, so your items may not sell as quickly. Additionally, Facebook doesn’t have nearly as much buyer protection as eBay does, so you’re more likely to run into scams or fraudsters.

If you want total control over the sale of your Funko pops—and don’t mind doing a bit more work—you can always create your own website or blog dedicated to selling them. This way you get to set your own prices and keep 100% of the profits. You’ll also have complete control over how your pops are presented and advertised. Of course, the big drawback here is that it will take some time and effort to build up enough traffic to your site or blog to make it worth your while. Additionally, unless you’re experienced in website design and marketing, it may be difficult to get things off the ground.
Selling your Funko pops can be a great way to make some extra cash while decluttering your home—but only if you do it right. There are lots of different ways to sell your pops (eBay, Facebook Marketplace/Groups, personal website/blog), but each has its own advantages and disadvantages. It’s important to choose the method that makes the most sense for you and your collection. And whatever you do, don’t forget to take good care of your pops so they hold their value!Where can I sell my Funko Pops?
