We all have at least a bunch of clothes in the back of our cupboards which actually never get used. This can actually prove to be an opportunity instead of a hassle if you just know all the best places to sell clothes online.
Who knew the first place to look when you’re running low on money is your closet! You can always sell the unused clothes and make some money and free up some space for new ones! Gone are the yard sale days where you could never be sure of the price your items would sell for (or if they would sell at all!). Here we have listed some of the best online places where you can sell your clothes and accessories, and some handy tips to help you get the best out of it!
ThredUP has the easiest process which is ideal if you’re new to the selling arena or if you’re a busy person. They send a “clean out” bag and all you have to do is put the clothes in the bag and they’ll ship it for free.
The rest of the process including the photographing of the items and the selling is handled by them. If you want any of the items that ThredUP rejects returned then you’ll have to pay a $10.99 fee, or they go to a charity partner. As this is probably the most convenient option, it’s not the most lucrative one. You can get a maximum of 80% of the resale value.
ThredUP takes in women’s and children’s clothing, shoes, and handbags.
Poshmark takes in women and children’s clothing, shoes and handbags. It also accepts men’s clothing. It’s very reliable and everything can be done using their app (available for both ios and android). It takes less than a minute to post your items and you have complete control over the photographing and the descriptions.
When your item is sold, Poshmark will send a shipping box and all you have to do is fill the box and drop it at the post office or have it picked up from your home. The buyer pays for the shipping! You can also use the US postal service website which is free to schedule.
The Poshmark app has a social media compliment which allows buyers to follow you and easily access your closet and see all the items you have put up for sale. The Posh party feature allows you to sell your item in a flash.
Tradesy is perfect if you want store credit instead of hard cash. It accepts bags, accessories, shoes, clothing and wedding items. The listing process involves uploading the brand name, quality condition, and photographs. (Tradesy automatically enhances the pictures to increase your items “eye appeal”!)
Tradesy’s commission fee is $7.50 for items less than $50, and 14.9% for items over $50.
You can choose to receive payment via Store Credit, PayPal Cash, Prepaid Debit Card, and Bank Direct Deposit.
4. The RealReal
The RealReal accepts both men and women’s clothing, shoes, jewelry, and accessories. It’s an online consignment shop dedicated to luxury brands. This is ideal if you want to get rid of your items quickly as the website states that most items sell within 3 days for listing.
You can schedule a home pickup (for a large number of items) or ship it to them for free. You can get up to 70-85% of the profits.
You’ll get your profits on the 15th of each month via mailed check, direct deposit, or store credit.
This one’s for you moms out there! Kidizen is the top-rated kids’ clothing app. You can set up a virtual “shop” by adding pictures and a description of your items.
When an item sells, Kidizen will provide you a shipping label to send the goods. The shipping costs have to be borne by the seller which is you. The service charges a marketplace fee of 12 percent, plus 50 cents for each transaction.
6. ASOS Marketplace
ASOS Marketplace is an online boutique catered to people in the 20s which lets you sell vintage men’s and women’s clothing at a monthly subscription fee. However this is not for you if you’re an amateur as to be a vintage boutique, you must maintain at least 20 different styles at all times.
ASOS also requires a photography check before you’re allowed to open a shop and post them. You can keep up to 80% of the sales proceedings.
This is another website where you can sell vintage clothing, even going as far back as the early 1900s. You can create your own closet and add pictures of your items to your collection. However, Refashioner is very picky about accepting new pieces. If you’re confident about the uniqueness of your piece you can give it a try!
The Mercari app allows you to sell clothing, shoes and accessories and ships in two ways. In the first way whatever sells will have a 10% flat fee. The second way is paying a rate based on the weight of the item. So you have a chance of saving money on heavy items by going for the first option.
This app has a structure and layout similar to eBay’s. Mercari pays you every Monday with direct deposit.
eBay is quite possibly the biggest online marketplace. They offer the first 100 listings free for their sellers. You can also open a store at a nominal fee. You can hold auctions or keep a fixed price.
The biggest advantage of using eBay is that you get to keep 90% of the selling price. If you choose payment through PayPal then PayPal keeps 3% of the selling price. You can get one of their shipping labels or ship on your own.
10. LePrix (formerly SnobSwap)
LePrix is a high-end digital consignment boutique which allows you to sell women’s designer clothing, shoes, and accessories. It also provides an option to trade your items with other sellers. For luxury items, buyers would prefer to inspect the items and you will have to consign your items in-person.
You can also find a boutique near you to sell luxury items. Consigners on LePrix get a commission starting from 15%.
Bonanza works similar to eBay and Amazon. It’s great if you want to sell quirky or extraordinary items as it is free to list an item on Bonanza. Bonanza has a fixed-price policy, unlike the auction style sites. But you can negotiate with the buyers. Bonanza also offers the sellers more exposure by advertising their listings on multiple platforms.

Bonanza is rapidly gaining popularity among sellers and is known for its low commissions.

Some tips for selling clothes online
1. Always remember that the pictures ultimately seal the deal. If the pictures of your items are blurry or unflattering to look at they won’t attract buyers. It’s also better if you add some pictures of your items being worn by someone. Take the pictures in bright lighting and with a good quality camera.
2. Descriptions are the second most important thing that buyers will look at, so make sure they are accurate, especially details like sizes, brands, and colors.
3. If you have the choice to set your own price to remember to not get carried away and set a realistic price. Keep the quality of the items in mind before setting the price (no one pays the store price for pre-worn clothing!) If in doubt, setting the price as one-third of the retail price is always reasonable.
4. Network well! This will attract more people to your store and build a good impression. Always respond to comments and answer queries politely.
