EBay is undoubtedly the largest sales website on the Internet right now. So do not hesitate any longer! Create an account and you can have up to 20 free listings per month. You just have to take some good photos of the clothes you are selling, write a detailed and attractive description of your items and decide whether you will sell at auction or set a sale price. That easy! When you manage to sell an item, just package it, ship it, and celebrate as the money grows in your account.
You can also choose to donate part, or all, of the proceeds to charities when you set up a list. But, if you have many more than 20 items to sell, you can create an eBay store, in which you will have the option to list more than 250 items in various categories, including your clothes, but of course, you will have to pay monthly subscription fees. Not everything is perfect!
With Mercari, you can use something as basic as your phone to sell anything, including toys, electronics, sporting goods, and any item of clothing. In this application, you will be able to find more than 100,000 articles listed daily. All you have to do is take a good photo with your cell phone, add a description and set a price.
It is important to note that although publishing the products is free, they will take a 10% fee off the item when the sale is complete. The online store has to win something, right? After selling your item, Mercari will email you a trackable shipping label so you can send it to the buyer right away. The service also protects the buyer and will only release the payment to the seller once the buyer confirms that he has received the item and is as described in the post.
Definitely one of the stores on-line ThredUp is the most popular and largest fashion product. In this store you will find more than 30,000 brands for children, women and adolescents that you can buy, in most cases, with up to a 90% discount in relation to retail prices. Instead of throwing away your old clothes, you can request a “Cleaning Kit” from ThredUp. Then you just need to fill the bag with your unwanted items, send it back for your clothing to be categorized and listed, and wait for it to sell.
This system works like a consignment store where you can earn some cash when your items are sold to you or to a charity.
Vinted is a very easy to use application that allows you to sell, buy or change your used clothes. Definitely, they are three excellent options not to keep your old clothes. The only thing you need to sell your item is a photo, the description, the price and that’s it. Best of all, when the buyer receives the items, she can have the funds transferred directly to your bank account and thus you will see how your savings grow little by little and without being overtime at work. However, if you want a more secure payment system, you have the option of using PayPal.
Another very interesting feature that this application has is that the buyer can chat directly with the sellers, if they have additional questions about the item.
If you are one of the people who have new clothes that are not used and, unfortunately, you cannot convert your guest room into a new wardrobe, Poshmark is an excellent option to get rid of your clothing and earn a little money.
