Even though it's not spring cleaning season, it's always a good idea to give your closet a nice cleanout. You have to make room for all the new holiday dresses! If you're looking to sell clothes online, or you have some questions about how you sell clothes online in the first place, then consider this your one stop shop. Whether you're getting rid of clothes you've had since high school or you have beautiful shoes that you just never wear, keep reading for some of the best places to sell your items, as well as some tips and tricks on how you can sell clothes online.
How To Sell Clothes Online
Before you even list your items, you're going to want to do a few things first. First, go through your closet and pull out those pieces that kinda fit, but not really. Oh, and those trendy pieces that were really only wearable for a season, or that are kind of cute but you don't feel good in. Finally, take out those pieces that are just not you… even if you got them on sale for a great deal. These are the pieces that you're going to want to list online (before you hit up the thrift store...again).
Best Places To Sell Clothes Online
1. For Your Side Hustle: ASOS is a regular haunt for fashion junkies. Their styles are diverse and perfectly funky. In their Marketplace, you can shop right from other ASOS lovers’ online boutiques or start your own Marketplace (as long as you have at least 15 items to list). With your ASOS boutique, you’ll get an Account Manager to help you manage your sales as well as coverage from ASOS themselves. You pay $30 for your boutique each month as well as 20% commission on sales, but if you’re a regular closet purger, it may be worth it.
2. For Ultimate Convenience: With Vestiarie, you can sell any item in your closet that’s in good condition. They make the whole process super simple. Just upload pictures of your item and its information to its database (which reaches 23 million people!). When your item sells, Vestiarie will send you a prepaid label for shipping. All you have to do is pack up your item and drop it in the mailbox. They take up to 15% of your sale as a fee.
3. To Keep It Mobile: Poshmark is kind of like a Craigslist for clothes. Right from the app, you can post a picture of your item and list the details: size, brand, fit, etc. Fill in the original price and the listing price, then boom! You’re up and running. When you sell an item, Poshmark sends you a pre-paid shipping label + takes $3 for sales under $15 and 20% for anything over that.
4. To Get It All Done at Once: If you're looking to sell more than just clothes, check out Mercari. You can sell everything from clothing to books to tech, and if you have an q's you can check out their packing guidelines. Don't want to go to the post office? You can also sell from home.
5. For the Super Fashionable: Looking for something a little more on-trend? Depop could just be that something. Similar to the other sites, it’s free and easy to list and they provide prepaid shipping labels. Plus, not only can you sell on Depop, but you can also grab what you need from your favorite brands at a good cost. They take 10% of your sale.
6. To Sell and Donate: ThredUp will send you an adorable polka dot bag for you to send them your unwanted clothes. After they sort through your stash, they’ll give you up to 80% of the resale value of the items they’ll accept. Any that they don’t accept get donated to charity, and you can even donate your earnings if you’re so inclined.
7. For High-End Fashion: Sorry, but you might want to leave your Forever 21 finds in your closet. TheRealReal is the place to sell your top-of-the-line name brands to an audience looking exactly for that. Their site is full of great deals on expensive pieces, and most pieces sell within 30 days. In the end, Vaunte takes 15% commission from your sales.
