You may find it quite difficult to sell liquid mercury due to the dangers of the product and subsequent licenses and special packaging you would require to post any orders. It is advised to think if it is worth trying to sell liquid mercury and if you think there is a big enough market available.

You will find the odd bottle of liquid mercury will pop up on eBay, so perhaps your best and easiest way of selling liquid mercury would be to list on here yourself. A 500g bottle of liquid mercury fetches around £50 on the site.

If you are wishing to sell it on eBay then you simply do the following:

  • Head to
  • Sign in to your account
  • If you do not have an account you need to click on 'sign up' and complete the form
  • List your liquid mercury on either for auction or with a buy it now option
As liquid mercury can be very dangerous if leaked, it is of paramount importance that if you are planning on posting it that it is packaged correctly. It needs to be completely sealed and there needs to be a second layer that will stop the liquid leaking if the seal is somehow broken.

You could get into a lot of trouble if you send out the package without these guidelines. You really have to consider if it is worth trying to sell it at all.

HI I don't know the regulations but I'm learning now how to handle liquid mercury as I have found a large quantity in a storage clearance, please can anyone advise the best place to read the guidelines and where to buy the correct bottles. Once I'm satisfied then it will be for sale to anyone with a industrial use for it.

If is actually mercury it is a hazardous substances and as such it needs to be properly contained and packaged as hazardous. This is the first thing you need to determine. If it is not packaged in a certified container you should call the hazmat usually the fire department where you live.
