Q: I hear that people are selling their unwanted clothing for cash. I want to know how to sell used clothes online from home!
The rumor is true: you can sell your preloved clothes conveniently from home. There are 3 main ways to do this.
The first is to sell on a general selling website like eBay. You create an account, upload photos and a description of your piece, and either set a fixed or auction price. Once the piece has sold, you package and ship it to the buyer. You handle all communication with your buyer and deal with any returns.
The second way is to use a peer-to-peer marketplace, like Poshmark or Depop. Again, you create an account and a listing for your product. You answer potential buyers’ questions and sometimes negotiate a price together. Once the buyer makes the purchase, you package and ship the item to them directly. Again, you handle communication with the buyer.
Or, maybe you’d like to sell your clothes in 3 easy steps that don’t involve photographing, negotiating, and shipping every single one of your items. Here is where Crossroads Sell by Mail comes in.
1. Order a Sell by Mail Bag Online
