Sell Used Clothes Online

Where is the best place to sell used clothing online?

At some point we all have a collection of used clothing we need to get rid of. Having a yard sale is not as easy as it used to be and when you only have clothing, it can be hard to get people to stop.

There are consignment shops but then you give up a large portion of the sale price. So what can you do with the used clothing you don't want or need anymore?

More and more people have started buying used clothing at Thrift stores, consignments shops, Goodwill stores and so on. I have always been a thrift store shopper, no only because it makes sense economically but because it's like going on a treasure hunt. So buying used clothing on eBay is like going on that treasure hunt without having to leave home. So people can save even more money by saving on gas and time.

So why not look at it from the other side and become a seller as well as a buyer? If you love fashion you may have found a way to start your own used clothing business and have fun!

Pictures and Presentation: Taking good pictures is a key factor in being successful on eBay. And how you present your used clothing can mean the difference in selling it quickly or being stuck with it.

Descriptions: Giving honest descriptions of your used clothing is the best way to build your name as a trustworthy seller and to avoid returns or bad feedback.

      I use to sell on eBay, but have given it up. They are no longer cost effective for me. IMHO some of their new rulings are not in the interest of the seller, but back up the scammers instead. I had not heard of Threadflip before so will look into it. Thanks for the updated info.

      @goldenrulecomics: I was in that same spot a few years ago and finally just walked away from it. Then about a year and half ago, I got inspiration again and re evaluated what I could sell that would have the least risk of bad feedback and was easy to ship.

      I don't regret it and am looking forward to continued growth. I know it has many challenges including the ever rising postal rates but I really like working from home. So that coupled with my Squidoo lenses, I hope to continue to move upward. Wish you lots of luck and thanks for stopping by!

      We find selling a hit-or-miss adventure on eBay, and postal costs keep going up, so I'm not sure how much more time we will devote to it.
