Do you want to clean out your closet and make some money in the process?
With the increasing number of apps and websites for reselling clothes, it is now easier than ever. Here is a summary of the best and how much to charge. . .
closed: Great for selling everything from sportswear to famous brands and designer gear. And best of all, the seller pays nothing. Buyers pay a fee of three to eight percent, plus a 30p-80p, to cover refunds if their items don’t arrive or are damaged in the mail.
depop: Loved by students in their twenties because it is similar to Instagram and easy to use. It tailors the shoppers lists shoppers see based on the brands and styles they’ve liked and researched previously. There is no fee to list an item but you pay a 10 percent commission on anything you sell.
LoansSimilar to Gumtree, Preloved allows you to post ads online targeting people in your area. This means you can arrange for buyers to pick items and pay you with cash or PayPal upon receipt so you can save on postage. It’s free for a basic membership or you can pay an annual fee of £5-15 to get additional features to boost your listings.
Facebook Market: Another easy way to sell to local buyers using just your Facebook account. Most users are looking for a bargain, so you might not get a high price, but it is fairly hassle free and you don’t pay commission or registration fees.
ebay: You can list up to 1,000 items per month for free. You’ll pay a 12.8% commission on what you sell, plus a 30p fee. The amount on which the commission is calculated includes postage, taxes and other fees, which can be increased. You’ll also pay more if your item sells for more than £2,500 or if you want to add a ‘buy it now’ price.
