Girls like us like to shop. Let’s not even try to deny it. And when your clothes start piling up and taking over all your closet space, you know it’s time to clean out your closet. So what better way to clean out your closet than sell your clothes for some cash at the same time?
Today we’re going to talk about 4 of our favorite apps for selling your second-hand clothes:
Poshmark allows you sell your gently used clothing & accessories items. You can take pictures of the items, upload them, and make some cash. You can attend Poshmark themed “parties” where users can share their items that match the themes. Once you have sold an item, Poshmark provides you with a pre-paid, pre-addressed label that you can easily stick on your packages & drop them off at a USPS location or get them picked up from your house for free. Users are also protected under Poshmark policies. You get a refund if your item never ships, and if it doesn’t match the description of the listing. For all sales under $15, Poshmark takes a flat commission of $2.95. For sales of $15 or more, you keep 80% of your sale and Poshmark’s commission is 20%.
Tradesy is usually used to sell more brand-name items, such as J.Crew, Kate Spade, & Tory Burch. You can list your items for free and when the item sells, Tradesy will send you a shipping kit with a pre-paid label. The good thing about Tradesy is that they only take a 9% commission, which is probably the lowest rate I have seen. They also offers customers free shipping, which is a perk also.
Vinted is a platform for ladies to sell their gently used clothing, shoes, and accessories. Vinted takes a 19% commission, and buyers usually pays shipping. The thing I like about Vinted is that there are different rates for their shipping labels, so that customers can really get their buck’s worth. A cotton t-shirt doesn’t require $4.99 Priority shipping! There is also a forum where users can discuss just about anything! It adds a little personal touch to the platform.
Modabound is a platform for selling clothing & accessories for college students. Currently, Modabound is at universities such as NYU, UF, HCC, and a lot more! You can bring Modabound to your campus by signing up to be an ambassador and getting at least 100 students to sign up. Modabound allows students at the same colleges to meet up and sell their items. This way, people know what they’re really purchasing, doesn’t have to pay the app any commission, and no waiting for shipments!
So there you go! Those are 4 of our favorite apps for selling your second-hand clothing. It’s good to donate your clothes, but we all have those clothing pieces that we no longer wear but can’t bear to donate. So use these apps to your advantage and earn some cash at the same time!
