The 'Hashbag' marketplace service notes that annually, "over 2 million pictures are posted to Instagram with the hashtag #forsale." Hashbag collects these tagged images and makes it easy to search by hashtag on its website for a specific item.

The service is like a hybrid of Craigslist and Instagram, which helps to connect buyers and sellers. Since the basis of Instagram is visual, this is a great way to sell. Finds in the Hashbag marketplace include everything from furniture to art, shoes and even homemade items.

After signing up for Hashbag and hashtagging a photo with "forsale," Hashbag sends an email to ask the price you would like to sell your item at. Payments and shipments can be conducted through PayPal, which makes the process even easier. Stats for Photo-Based Retail Services Trending: Older & Average
