Best way to sell a camera?

I have a Canon T7 kit that I don't use much anymore. Not really having luck on Facebook marketplace or craigslist. Is Ebay safe for selling things that cost this much? I only ever sold sub 100$ items on ebay. I am just petrified of getting burned. Have any of you guy's ever sold your gear? If so what was the way you did it?

I sold some gear on Facebook but took a very long time to sell. Some I was able to sell there but got less than I wanted to get. The rest I sold to a company called KEH at their in person events they hold at camera stores across the country (USA). They will offer less than market price for it used on eBay, but you're not dealing with scammers that message you within 5 minutes of putting a listing up on Facebook. You'll receive a check right there for the gear you sell at KEH.

Do they accept accessories or just the camera itself? I have quite a few lenses and SD cards and all that. I do love photography, but I just literally never have the time for it anymore.

I know you can purchase accessories on their website as well...hell they even sell the camera manuals for those that want the paper version. I've sold camera lenses back that I purchased from KEH before and just upgraded to a faster lens. They'll sell used SD cards, but I'm not too sure on what they'll do with that. Just be sure to separate them to sell and make sure they are in the best condition you can sell them at, i.e. clean the camera lens and remove any smudges off the front glass or dust off the exterior. They are tough graders if you ship your gear to them as they are probably more so than MPB, another used camera site that will buy camera gear as well, just like KEH. 

 

I just don't have experience with selling to MPB, only purchasing from.
