Did you know that 1 out of every 5 Americans shops for resale products? Can you create income for your business using items in your house? The answer is yes! If you want to learn how to sell clothes online this article has the tips you need to build another aspect of your business.
Poshmark is one of the simplest ways to sell your clothes online. You simply create an account and use the main website or the Poshmark app to create different listings to sell your clothes (they also accept women’s and children’s clothing as well). Once another user buys an item from you Poshmark will send a pre-addressed label and you send it to the buyer.
Your payment will be sent to you either through a check or Paypal. It’s that simple!
You can use Facebook to sell your clothes online in a number of ways. You can create public posts (be careful of spam accounts) with the specific items, post ads in different groups (i find the trading post groups to be the best option), or load them up into the marketplace.
The biggest reason you can argue about creating a singular post is that you may have a higher chance of selling an item to someone you know, while also generating enough interest from anyone searching for those items.
If you are in a number of Facebook groups you also have a high chance making a sale. My wife and I have purchased clothes, toys, beds, and a puppy (Bella) online and it is a great tool to find specific things you may not be able to find in a retail setting.
The marketplace on Facebook is similar to posting an item in a group but it is geared toward only your local area. If you are located in Philadelphia you may not have to spend money on shipping costs if you can simply secure a preferred meetup location with the buyer.
Facebook is the biggest social media platform to find a way to use it and reap the benefits.
Crossroads is similar to Poshmark in its concept but has a major draw that Poshmark doesn’t, if you want to be a thrifty shopper. You request a bag that has prepaid shipping labels already on it and ships your clothes to their main warehouse.
Once your item is purchased you receive a 30% payout from the sale in the form of a paper check, or you can opt in for 50% store credit!
If you are like me then you would seriously consider the store credit as I can’t ever turn down a deal!
Another option that can work if you have a lot of clothes in your household is to build a Shopify store. Shopify gives you the ability to sell your material directly to buyers with a fully fledged online store and also gives you the opportunity to work with major vendors to drop ship items from one of their warehouses.
Although Shopify has become increasingly popular over the last few years, there is always a demanding market if you can find the right type of items to sell.
What’s Holding You Back?
If you are ready to take action and learn how to sell clothes online, any of these options can help you get started on the right track. Once you come up with a well thought out strategy you can even combine two or more of these options and create a resale clothing juggernaut in your area.
