You can make money reselling some of your stuff like handbags, jewelry and clothing. Especially if they are still in like new condition. In this blog post I will run down the 5 top platforms to list your items for sale for some extra income.
General Marketplaces For Sellers:
Topping my list for marketplaces for secondhand goods should surprise no one. I’m talking about you, ebay. I’m sure you have heard of them but if you haven’t, they allow you to sell pretty much anything from your clothes, to old comic books, to Pokemon cards. It has become the go-to place for bargain hunters and people looking for rare collectibles and vintage items. It is not only a good place to upload your garage sale but it is also an incredible place to look for vintage and one of a kind stuff you won’t find anywhere else.
Coming in at number two on my list is Poshmark. They specialize in name brand fashion. You will have more success selling fashion items here then you may find with eBay and there are some incredible deals here to boot. Everything is sorted by brand and broken up into categories. You will find something here for everyone with the top name brands at incredible discounts. If not selling; Buy Buy Buy.
This one is a marketplace billed for creative minded people. Etsy throws its focus on DIY handmade or vintage items. They do not allow you to resell anything outside of vintage and craft supplies. But if you are an artist or create your own works, this is a great place to list it.
This is one is interesting. Depop is a peer to peer mobile shopping app. Think of it like the Instagram of shopping. Many of the users here can be found modeling for their own styles and wear. It is a one of a kind social experience for the tech savvy millennial.
Here we have another app just like the one before. But unlike the one before it this one does not specialize so much in clothing. Mercari is a shopping app that sells general merchandise. It is free to list any items and you only pay a 10% fee when your item sells.
Social Media Mentions
Pinterest is not a marketplace but it is still one of the best places to find and show great styles. Especially if you sell on Etsy.
Another great social media giant. This can be a great place for styles if you know where to look. Use the hashtags!
