Here’s a look at the best places to sell clothes, shoes, purses and other household items.
Our top pick in this scape is Poshmark. Why?
Poshmark is a fashion sales site that encourages you to use your social media presence to sell your new and used fashion. By signing up through a third party — think Facebook — you can potentially boost traffic to your Poshmark “closet.” That increases the chance of selling your goods quickly.
To load items for sale, you take photos with your smart phone, upload, price and describe what you’re selling. It’s quick and easy. If the item sells, Poshmark provides you with postage and you mail the product directly to the buyer. Buyers have three days to check out what they purchased and, potentially, return it. You get paid via direct deposit within 2 to 3 days of the sale being accepted.
Site fees are 20%. But Poshmark provides the shipping label, so not out of line.
eBay is one of the world’s largest selling sites. And it gets our nod as the second-best place to sell clothes, shoes, purses and, frankly, anything else. What makes eBay great is it gets millions of site visitors every day. What makes it tough is that it’s so popular, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle. Site fees range from 3% to about 21%, depending on what you are selling and how much you’re selling it for.
