I haven't had a ton of luck selling on FB so you may not be missing much there as a way to sell.
diaperswappers.com has been around for a while, and seems to be pretty well run. I just can't seem to motivate myself to reach the minimum post count that they require, so be able to list diapers on their forum.

I'm no expert, but this has been my approach:
My starting point for pricing, because I am both lazy and eager to sell, is to figure out what is 1/2-3/4 retail, assuming the diapers are in Good to Very Good condition. I'll err on the higher side if the print is HTF or otherwise sought after. For diapers that have more wear and tear, I reduce the price to something like $8-10. If elastic needs replacing or there are holes in the absorbent part of the diaper, I'll go down to $4-5 per diaper. But I am beginning to think that if a diaper is in need of repair it might end up in the donation pile.
I'm done laundering (stripped and sunned) and here is what I have:
29 BG 4.0s with snaps. Neutral solid colors. Most are stain free but there a few (less than 5) with light staining on either the insert or diaper itself. Otherwise great condition, no issues with elastic or snaps.
6 flip covers.
12 flip inserts, most have light staining. Should I bother or just throw them in?
4 large wetbags 6 medium travel size wetbags 21 individual wetbags
1BG diaper sprayer
Also I plan to throw in the rest of the Country Save that we have and an almost completely full bag of Rockin Green Funk Rock. And 2 citrus discs. I have 6 organic cotton flip inserts but they are stained so I think they are unusable.
What do you think for pricing.....is 300 too much or not enough? I'm going with Craigslist to see what happens.
Oh, and for pricing, I would split the diapers into small bundles of 3-5 diapers per bundle and set a price for each bundle, then add up all bundles and round down to a easy dollar amount for anyone who wants the whole lot as sometimes smaller bundles sell faster than larger lots. If you have htf/discontinued prints ALWAYS pair them with 1-2 less desired colors/prints if you don't want to be stuck with an unsellable stash of unwanted diapers.
