Best Places to Sell Your Clothes Online
Have a bunch of clothes you don’t wear anymore? Want to sell your clothes online?
I am always looking for ways to make extra money and since I’m in the process of decluttering my whole house I thought it would be a great time to try and sell my clothes online. I have a lot of clothes that I no longer have any use for and just don’t have the room for.
Plus being able to sell my clothes makes it a little easier to stomach the fact that I purchased so many things over the years. I don’t even consider myself a “shopper” but somehow I accumulated tons of clothes and bought lots of things I thought I’d wear and didn’t.
While decluttering my clothes, I created four piles, one for donating, one for selling, one for keeping, and one for trash. I only trashed items that had holes in them or were stained.
I donated items I felt maybe wouldn’t sell or that I just wanted to give away. Any items that still had the tags on them I kept for selling and any brand name items or items worn only a few times were put aside to sell.
I did the same thing with shoes and accessories.
After having enough items to try and sell I thought about my options on where to sell them. I wanted something super easy and not a lot of work for myself. I considered a yard sale but that was something that I couldn’t do without some active planning so I researched some online options.
Lucky I found three really great options that I am going to share with you today.
Websites to Sell Your Stuff Online
Sell Clothes on Poshmark (My Pick)
My first and favorite place to sell my clothes, shoes and unwanted items is Poshmark. Poshmark is a super popular app for buying and selling clothes, shoes, makeup, and more. I like Poshmark because they make selling your stuff online super easy.
How Does Poshmark Work?
You basically just snap a photo of the item you want to sell with your phone, fill in a description, set the price, and you’re done! There are no fees to start selling, you only get charged a fee upon a sale.
Currently, Poshmark charges a flat fee of $2.95 for listings under $15. For orders that are $15 and over, they keep 20% of the sale, and you get to keep 80%. Most of that goes to credit card processing fees, providing insurance for all packages mailed out, and keeping the community going.
I am currently using Poshmark to sell some of my stuff and while the 20% may seem a bit high I don’t mind it because Poshmark is making it super easy for me to sell and taking care of customer service and creating the shipping label etc.
Shipping is $6.49 for expedited shipping on all orders. Each order is shipped using 1-3 day USPS Priority Mail and shipping is paid for by the buyer.
They do most of the work for you, you just list your items and share them. Once they are sold they create the label for you, you just print it, slap it on a box and mail it! They make selling so easy that even for someone who hates selling (me) its a great option. With a little effort, I already sold 6 items and will be listing a lot more.
If you want to check out Poshmark you can get a Free $5 Credit if you use my Referral Code: BYXWR
Be sure to check out my closet and follow me! Comment below with your Poshmark username and I’ll follow you back and share your listings.

Sell Clothes on Mercari
Selling on Mercari is similar to selling on Poshmark, they both have an easy to use app that makes listing your items super easy! I am going to be trying out Mercari soon as some items that are not selling on Poshmark may do better on Mercari.
How Does Mercari Work?
Simply snap a photo and enter a few details of your listing to make it available to the millions of users on Mercari. I will be writing about my experience selling on Mercari in the near future so make sure you bookmark the blog and come back and follow me on social media to get notified of new posts.
Sell Clothes on ThredUp
ThredUp is another place where you can sell your items online but it’s a little different from selling on PoshMark or selling on Mercari because you are selling your items to ThredUp and not directly to another person.
You send the folks at ThredUp all the items you don’t want and they will evaluate them and make you an offer to you. They also have very strict criteria and only accept items that are in excellent condition and are on trend and in season.
The amount you’re paid depends on the original price, brand, and category of each item. You can use their Payout Estimator found on the website to find out what others have earned for similar items.
If you want to check them out you can get a $10 Credit using my referral link here. Once you join you can order your Free Clean Out Kit to start sending in your items.
What I love about ThredUp is that you can also donate your items and they will send you a receipt via email.
Sell Clothes on Swap.com
Swap.com accepts new and preowned clothes as well as toys and games for babies and kids! It is similar to ThredUp in that you can send them all your clothes at once but Swap.com will pay you when they sell or they will buy them off you with their SureSell Guarantee.
Just print out a prepaid shipping label or request an Inbound Box from them.
Check out Swap.com for more information and start earning money off your unwanted clothes.
