It’s been years since I’ve sold my clothes – I usually donate everything to Goodwill or send balikbayan boxes (huge shipping boxes full of clothes, toys, chocolate Filipinos send back) home to the Philippines. But I had some nicer items that I had barely worn, and figured I’d see if they were thrift store worthy….and I was able to sell back 10 items! I still have a few other items that I’d love to sell and I’m thinking I’ll try one of the many awesome clothing resell apps – Poshmark, ThredUp , eBay etc – since this working mama would love to not spend time driving, parking, and lugging bags of clothes to the thrift shop. But it feels good to give away the things that I barely use to others who will appreciate them more, so to help make our used clothes selling process easier for all of us, read more for the best websites and best apps to sell clothes online.
11 Best Websites & Best Apps to Sell Clothes Online
- eBay: I’ve been using eBay to sell (and buy) all the things since 2001 😱, and it’s one of the best and biggest marketplaces in the world and undoubtedly one of the best apps and websites to sell used clothes online. Even though I need to cover the shipping costs on my own, I’ve always been able to sell my items quickly on eBay, at a fair price.
- Poshmark: List and sell everything from your phone, and the seller doesn’t have to cover shipping? Yes please. Add to that Poshmark’s mighty shopping and selling community, and the boutique and social shopping style Poshmark is known and loved for.
- ThredUp: In my opinion, the easiest option for those of us who want to be the most time efficient with clothes selling. ThredUp sends you a prepaid shipping bag for the clothes you want to sell, you fill the bag and send it back, ThredUp sells your clothes, and you get a maximum of 90% of the resale price. Literally, the only thing required of us is to mail our clothes! Items ThredUp doesn’t select to sell can be responsibly recycled or returned to you for a fee. Such a game changer for used clothes selling.
- Crossroads Trading: The iconic thrift store has joined the online game, too. Similar to ThredUp, Crossroads sends you a prepaid shipping bag to send your clothes. Unlike ThredUp, Crossroads will select the clothing items they want to buy back. For the remaining items, you can have Crossroads donate them for a small fee, or they can send your clothes back to you.
- The Real Real: For those coveted designer items (hi, Chanel bag), The Real Real’s 100+ experts authenticates every single item on their site for consignment. The Real Real helps us save even more time by sending a prepaid shipping bag, or (since these are designer items that we may not want to ship) request their White Glove in home pickup in one of their 20 metro locations.
- Vestiaire Collective: Similar to The Real Real, Vestiaire Collective is a dream marketplace for all things designer. List your items easily from your phone, and when an item sells, ship it to Vestiaire Collective for free and they will inspect the item, ship it to the buyer, and sellers can earn up to 80% of the selling price. Or for a more hands free option, send your items to Vestiaire Collective and they will photograph, list, and everything else and sellers will earn up to 75% of the selling price.
- Facebook Groups: A fast way to offload your unwanted items is through Facebook Groups. List your items in groups focused on specific brands or categories and watch them sell! I’ve sold a lot of barely used baby clothes on Mom Facebook Groups (local groups = no shipping!) and it’s been the quickest option for me.
- Facebook Marketplace: I haven’t tried listing anything on Facebook Marketplace yet but I’m eager to – there are local options to sell your items and it’s super easy to list!
- Etsy: Another mega marketplace that is easy to use, and ideal for those selling sought out vintage items. The cost to list and sell items are low (less than 10%! of the reselling price), and Etsy’s simple and secure transaction process gives me peace of mind.
- Mercari: Fast & Free. Mercari is one of the newest marketplace apps on the block, and they make it easier than ever to list, sell, and ship your items in no time, and sellers keep 90% of the selling price.
- ASOS Marketplace: Selling Designer or rad, sought out vintage items? Open a boutique on ASOS Marketplace, see them sell quickly, and keep 90% of the seller price. There are boutique requirements (must have a minimum number of items, etc), but if you have what it takes, ASOS may promote your boutique on their website and social, and this boutique could be the best place to sell your coveted goods.
