    Is this correct?

    Lets say I have a product that I have not use it, someone saw the product and ask me how much is that product.

    I want to tell him that I intend to use the product, but I can also sell it.

    Can I say:

    I have plans for the product, but I can also sell it to you for $100.

    Note my amendments to your post in red. Your sentence is grammatically correct but not particularly natural. Saying "I have plans for ..." is a little odd. Most products have a specific use so presumably you planned to use it in the way it was intended. I would say "I was planning to use it but if you want it, I'll sell it to you for $100".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
