With the introduction of DVDs and Blue-ray, a lot of people are left with a collection of VHS videos that have been replaced on DVD. Although many people now buy DVDs or Blue-ray, it is still possible to sell your old VHS for a small profit. Special edition or films that have not been released on DVD will generate more of a profit.

    Go to the "Sell" section of your eBay account. Choose the "Sell an item" option from the drop-down list.

  4. 4

    List the videos one by one. Upload a photograph for each video and give a brief description. Research if the film is available on DVD--if it's not, then mention this in your posting. This may help to encourage a sale.

    Take any remaining VHS tapes to a local car boot sale to sell at a minimal price. Provide any information you feel may will help the sale, such as if it's unavailable on DVD or a limited special edition.
