I know that we all have clothes that we no longer wear or have outgrown. Did you know that you can turn unwanted clothes into cash? There are so many websites where you can sell your wanted clothes. You can clean out your closets and fill up your wallet. This is really good if you have kids because they hardly get much wear out of their clothes, they grow so darn fast!
Sites for Women/Kids
- ThredUp is by far my favorite online consignment shop. If you are a new member, you will get $20 in credits when you sign up! You order a Clean Out Kit and put in all the clothes that you want to sell; the clothes must be in very good condition. They will sort through and price your items. Anything they don’t take will be donated to one of their charitable partners. ThredUP pays up to 80 percent of the resale value and offers shopping credits or cash payments via Paypal.
- Vinted can be used two ways. You can take great pictures, add a killer description, and upload them on Vinted. Swapping and giving an item away is free! We take 19% of the total price from successfully sold items. If you want to swap with other members, you will just pay for shipping.
- Schoola is a great way to clean out your closet for a good cause. You won’t get money for your clothes directly but you will donate them and the money will go to school programs. They will send you a bag, postage-paid. you fill it with adorable kids’ and women’s clothing and leave it for your mail carrier. They’ll take it from there and 40% of the proceeds will go to the school of your choice.
- eBay is really for any type of clothing. I think people find most success selling handbags, designer clothing, or vintage clothing. You have to take great photos and do all of the shipping yourself.
Sites for Men
- Grailed is an online consignment site just for men. This is the only one I’ve heard of so if you know of any others, please let us know in the comments. Create an account and click the “sell” button. You can upload photos and fill in information about the item you’re selling. Your clothing will be listed on the main page of the site as well as your individual seller page. They will notify you via email when people ask questions or submit offers. Grailed is free to use but you will see a small amount sent to them for your PayPal fees (2.9% + .30 for domestic and 3.9% + .30 for international).
