Springtime is decluttering time. That means lots of upcoming trips to the donation box or thrift store. But it can also mean some extra cash in your pocket. As they say, one person’s trash is another one’s treasure, and you may be holding onto some items that hold value to others. If you’re unloading clothes that are still in good condition, consider selling them on an app or website. Here are five places you can sell your clothes online for cash this spring.
Poshmark is one of the most popular selling apps out there, and for good reason. They make it easy to list and sell your clothes from within the app. They even formulate a shipping label for your as soon as a purchase is confirmed, so all you have to do is print, ship, and get paid. Some Poshers also trade their items, so you may be able to let go of a piece of clothing in exchange for another you’d rather have.
Depop has been around since 2011. It’s a mobile marketplace that allows users to buy and sell their stuff straight from the app, but it’s also meant to inspire buyers and sellers around the world. Part marketplace, part social media, it’s particularly popular with teenagers, but people of any age can use Depop to make extra cash off their unwanted items.
ThreadUp is like an online consignment store. They accept clothing that’s in good condition and then resell it for a reasonable price. Once the item is sold, you’ll get cash or credits towards other purchases. ThredUP offers “kits” that include a big bag and shipping label making it simple to load up your clothes and send them away for resale.
If you’re still a fan of “The Book,” you can sell your stuff right from Facebook. The Facebook Marketplace makes it simple to sell your items to people in your local community. You can list photos and interact with prospective buyers before purchases are made.
The O.G. place to sell your clothes is still alive and well. With the alternative options available, Craigslist isn’t usually first on people’s lists (hence why it’s last on ours), but if you aren’t into dealing with any “fancy” apps, Craigslist might just be your best choice. It’s a simple, bare-bones approach to selling your stuff that makes the process easy and puts the control in your hands. No need to pay transaction fees or hand over a chunk of your change to a selling app. Just be wary of scammers.
