Do you want to clear out your closet and earn some cash in the process?
With a growing number of apps and websites to resell clothes, it’s easier than ever. Here’s a rundown of the best ones and how much they charge. . .
VINTED: Great for selling everything from sportswear to high street brands and designer gear. Best of all, the seller doesn’t have to pay. Buyers must pay a fee of three to eight per cent, plus 30p-80p, for a refund if their items do not arrive or if they are damaged in the mail.
DEPOP: Loved by students and twenties because it resembles Instagram and is easy to use. It tailors the list shoppers see to the brands and styles they’ve previously loved and searched for. There is no fee to list an item, but you pay a ten percent commission on anything you sell.
Popular: Similar to Gumtree, Preloved allows you to post online ads targeted to people in your area. This means you can arrange for the buyer to pick up the item and pay you in cash or PayPal upon pick up so you can save on freight. It’s free for the basic membership, or you can pay an annual fee of £5 – £15 for extras to boost your list.
FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE: Another easy way to sell to local buyers with just your Facebook account. Most users are looking for a bargain, so you may not get a high price, but it’s pretty simple and you don’t have to pay commissions or listing fees.
EBAY: You can list up to 1,000 items per month for free. You will pay 12.8% commission on what you sell, plus a 30p fee. The amount for which the commission is charged, including postage, taxes and other fees, may increase. 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.
