How to make money reselling Nintendo 64 games on eBay

What if I told you those old Nintendo 64 games that your kids used to play that you probably have packed away in your attic are worth a good amount of money?

Well, they are!

And, what if I were to tell you that oftentimes you can also find these same games at your local thrift store?

Well, you can! I know this because I do it quite often and I want to encourage you to do the same.

I loved playing my Nintendo 64 growing up. It was definitely my favorite gaming console. And apparently, it is thousands of other people’s favorite as well, judging by the prices that the games are selling for on eBay. 

Check out some of these prices that I found doing a completed listings search on eBay:

These are great to sell because they’re lightweight and easy to ship, they are inexpensive to purchase, and the pop-up quite frequently in most thrift stores.

Tips for reselling Nintendo 64 Games on eBay:

1. Know where to find the games.

Most of the time these games will be located locked in the glass box near the register at most thrift stores. I know for sure this is the case at Goodwill, which is where I source a lot of my items to resell. No worries, though. The cashier will be happy to open the case and let you look at the games. 

2. Look ’em up.

While I listed quite a few of the profitable games above, there is still plenty more out there that I don’t know about yet. So if you come across one at the thrift shop, do a quick completed listings search to see how much it’s selling for before you purchase it.

3. Make sure it works.

This can be difficult unless you have a working Nintendo 64 console. I myself do not, so there’s always a risk of the game not working when I list it for sale on eBay. So far, I’ve only had one return because of this which isn’t too bad. I always just include in the description something along the lines of:  “I purchased this game at a thrift store, so I do not no it’s origin and I do not have a way to test that the game works. Please bid accordingly.” That usually does the trick. 

4. Consider selling multiple games as a ‘Lot’.

I’ve experimented with this strategy some in the past as well. If you find multiple games at a time, rather than listing them for sale individually, you can sell them all at once as a ‘lot’ and sometimes make more money that way. Just set the price and watch the bids roll in. 

Final thoughts

So now you know all about reselling Nintendo 64 games on eBay in order to make nice profits for your eBay business. These little jokers are highly profitable and easy to find at times, so I definitely recommend that you add this item to your arsenal. Or not, that’s fine too; more for me!

Be sure to check the Thrifteo Closet often, as I’m always adding new highly profitable items for reselling. Good luck.
