E-commerce has never been bigger, and it’s not reserved just for big companies! One look at the sheer volume of apps, social media buy and sell groups, and websites dedicated to helping people buy and sell products shows you just how popular this is nowadays.
Clothing resale has become such a huge marketplace that recent numbers have shown it is a $16 billion industry! What this means for you is that there is plenty of opportunity to get in on the profits, and sell the clothes you no longer wish to keep. There’s even a new term for it – social shopping – and it seems like just about everyone out there has been checking it out.
Where it used to be that eBay was the only option, today it’s no longer the trendy choice. Instead, you can use the whole premise of social shopping to your advantage and list items on social shopping sites.
Take for example the popular Poshmark app. This app makes it possible to buy and sell online, and currently has just over one million “shoppers” registered. It’s a great way to reach a massive audience and provides you with all the tools you need to market your goods.
Then there is the massively popular Etsy marketplace. Etsy is able to connect you with millions of people all around the world who are looking to buy and sell items. You can make your own Etsy store stand out by creating sleek and professional looking Etsy banners with the help of the Adobe Spark tool.
Another site that specializes in selling used clothes is thredUP.com. This one will send you a bag that you can fill with all the items you want to sell. You then send it back to them, and from there they will list the items and pay you 40% of the resale value.
