5 unexpected ways to make money by selling old clothes online
Even if you have never been part of something like this, you probably know that there are many ways in which you can make money online. Reselling old clothes (yours or someone else’s) is among the simplest ways to make a profit in the comfort of your home. In the last few years, this activity has become a multi-billion industry.
The best part is that there is more than one way to do this. You can choose the method that suits your needs the most. We will now describe a few online clothing business opportunities and strategies based on your preferences.
Selling clothes online if you are social
In case you act as a social shopper, then you should definitely take Poshmark into account. This service is more than 6 years old and it looks like a mixture between eBay and Pinterest. It’s worth mentioning that it is focused only on women’s clothes. They take 20% fee for every item you sell. The platform allows interactions with potential and existing customers and excellent presentation of your offer for free.
For brand lovers
In case you have high-end, branded clothes in your closet and you want to sell some of it, you can check The RealReal. In this case, you don’t have to sell your items and look for customers. The RealReal will deliver a prepaid shipping label to your home. After that, they will take photos, suggest a price and sell your items on your behalf. In most cases, you’ll earn about 70% of each sale. You can use Tradesy for branded clothes too.
For those who are busy
Modern women and men are busy people. If you are one of them, you should check ThredUp. This website allows users to list all the clothes they want to sell and submit an offer. There is no need to take and post photos or talk to customers. Many parents are using this website because it saves time and energy. You can earn between ten and eighty percent of the selling price.
For those who want to start a long-term business like this
There are some people who believe that they can turn their interest into a business. So, if you think that you can sell used clothes for a longer period of time, you can open an account on eBay or you can start your own website.
